A friend of mine suggested I make a coloring tutorial for her :3c I hope it’s informative enough to kinda get the gist of how I sometimes color things!
and after reading what you had to say about not letting that fear of “never being good enough” stop you, I almost cried a little. It touched me on a deeply emotional level, and I’m so happy to have happened across your blog, and you. I really hope that one day I can proudly say the same thing you did. Because of you, and because of so many of the artist friends I’ve made since joining Tumblr only a few months ago, I’m never going to quit like I used to again. Never. Thank you, so much. <3
This is absolutely incredible message to receive, honey. I’m very humbled by your words. I’m only human I still struggle with myself from time to time, but it’s also hard to give up what I started because I love drawing so, so much.
Catching yourself in that rut is one of the most frustrating experiences you’ll ever have as an artist, as is being especially critical of yourself in the meantime. Even then, I’ve come across other heartfelt posts about similar things that have touched me very deeply, and it’s something that sticks with you. It’s something to go back to when you feel like you’re losing sight of the bigger picture. To motivate or inspire yourself. To remind yourself that you are good enough.
Sometimes I feel like I’m not terribly good with conveying my feelings, but I genuinely want other artists or writers or anyone else to realize that your style is unique to you and only you can do it, and that you matter.
A lot of people wait for greatness to happen to them, but it won’t. I don’t believe in talent, only time and practice. Things won’t just happen to you. You need to make them happen, and in just the way you can. You can have the greatest support of amazing friends and family, but only you can decide how you’re going to use it.
The only person you can rely on to pick yourself up and let yourself do what you do best, is you.
Aaaa aah /)//u//(\ That’s so wonderful to hear, I’m glad! I hope you find 20 dollars on the ground, Anon n3n (and I concur!)
