"I’M BLEEDING….. that’s okay i can still do it"
THIS IS MY FAVORITE VIDEO EVER
Thank you so much!! :’D
Okay, okay I actually have a whole lot to say about this so I’m really glad you asked.
I actually see this a lot for some reason, perfectly talented growing artists feeling ashamed of their art when compared to others more experienced and get a bit nervous when deciding to post or not. Which I don’t understand because everyone has to start somewhere. You want to know where I started? The first thing I ever uploaded?
Here I was, new to deviantART back in 2010. Only four years ago! Haha!
And here’s my very first art of Jack Frost. Much different than my style now. |D That was in the beginning of 2013.
I knew it wasn’t the best. I certainly was aware that there were better artists out there, and you know what? That’s what kept me going. What still keeps me going. I know I’m not the best, and I certainly hope I never am! Because instead of growing envious of those with more skill than I have, I choose to analyze it, to learn from it, to pinpoint exactly what it is I love about that piece and put my own spin on it both to improve my own art and create something new.
My advice is to never compare your art to other peoples and to put your own creations down just because of the more experienced artists out there. A lot of people do this, and it’s something that I really dislike to see. Because it’s your art. This isn’t them, this is you. And you certainly wouldn’t like to be compared to someone else as a person, so why do that with your art? The way I see it, the art is a part of you. And it will continue to improve as you continue to learn and put that knowledge you pick up on and translate it to pencil and paper. Little by little, you will begin to see improvement.
I started from the bottom. Like very bottom. Last year, almost exactly a year ago, is when I created my Tumblr account. I got four notes max, no followers, nobody spoke to me, but I still didn’t let that get me down at all. Because I had faith that I would improve, and I did.
Every sketch matters. From twenty second scribble to hours and hours, it will help! So my opinion? Yes! Post those, sketches, all those sketches and get out there! Talk to those who you look up to, befriend them, ask for advice, do anything you need to do! As long as your mind is set on it, you will get there! It’s worth it, you are worth it. And if you want to become a better and well-known artist, there’s no better time to start than right now! ^^
Goodness, Frosty. I really don’t know how to respond to this!!
Thank you very much. QuQ
You’ve been keeping secrets.

Though I think it would be a little difficult to be friends with an anon!! xD
Don’t be shy. ^^
- call you names
- tell you weird and personal details about myself
- say “I NEED TO PEE” instead of just brb
- type in caps a lot.
If i’m extra comfortable with you I’ll do all that and:
- talk casually about porn and really perverted thoughts
- share funny photos from my tumblr dash
- actually tell you when i’m upset
- try to make conversation with you
- just generally act really silly when I’m in a good mood
- tell you jokes even if they’re bad
Merida wig yo.
I’m actually going to turn this into extensions and temporarily dye my hair to match. (Cause my hair is already crazy curly) The result will hopefully be Merida like hair.
