And now some other bad tips on becoming a mediocre artist:

"Don't use other mediums besides a notepad. Why should you get a feel for texture when you can just print it out".
"Draw anime, it's the best".
"Anatomy? Realism? Pfft, I don't need to learn that".
"It's Art because I said it's Art".
"You're just a hater".
"I'm special".


(psst, Art has standards like any other subject. If you can't adjust to them you will never become an actual artist. But at least people like pretty pictures, right?)

I agree! There's nothing wrong with wanting to refine your technique, but some people get so caught up in it that they end up turning art some kind of competition. Why create art if it just stresses you out and makes you angry?

I totally agree. Art should be about relaxing, not for stress. :hug:

"If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself".
-- Desiderata

I wish I could internalize these words, however...all too often I feel compelled to compare my art to that of everyone else (particularly those who outclass me). And I think it's because I'm looking for redemption in a way that can be quantitatively measured.

Thanks!

Same here, we should always compare against ourselves instead against others. Thanks for reminding me xD

I wouldn't say that to every artist, true as it is. Because some artists that aren't really that good start to get arrogant and cocky about their art. For everyone's sake so we don't have to take aspirin after every visit to deviantART I hold back on complimenting people to kindly or we might never hear the end of this.

Regardless this is faved.

... The stamp is about you judging your own art with others, and that doesnt help. Its trying to say that we should all be happy with our own art style, instead of wishing we had other's styles/ skills etc.

It doesnt mean that its bad to get criitcism or anything.

This is great. And one of the single most important things I learned in college...a professor told me, "There will always be someone better." which is so true. So there's not use getting upset when you see other people's amazing art. Instead, use it as inspiration...and always push yourself to improve.

I'm hoping I'm getting the message right, in reading that I shouldn't be envious of others' art technique, style and content? :confused: Yes it makes sense. We will always have someone better than us. We can be better than others. (I don't look at it that way though. My confidence in what I can do for art is not all that strong. Practice as I may, I still aspire to do art like the pros, but will never get there. :( )
It's a good stamp with a positive message, however. I know I should take it to heart but it's hard. :lonely: Thank you for making this stamp.
