Okay, I have something to discuss. For the past few weeks I have been feeling really self-conscious about my art and it's starting to become bothersome. Even when I'm pleased with an artwork I create, there's still that undercurrent of self-doubt, which is further perpetuated if the artwork isn't received as well as I expected it to be. Sometimes I look at my follower count and as I watch it increase I kind of wonder... "Why though?". Whenever I receive messages of people complimenting my drawings, I always feel so blessed that my art means at least the smallest thing to someone out there and for that I will forever be greatful.
So, I did this side-by-side comparison not to highlight my progress, but to prove TO MYSELF that I have in fact improved and I'm not as garbage as I feel. And instead of redrawing a nameless girl with no story or real purpose, I turned her into Mia Corvere.
I'm hoping that I will continue to grow and mature in my style and that this feeling of self-doubt and self-pressure ceases soon.
If you've read this far, thank you and I appreciate every ounce of support, even if I sometimes feel like I don't deserve it 😊♥
