Yes! It happens all the time. I get really discouraged every time I browse deviantart and see all those beautiful artworks, some literally flawless, and then I look at mine and I feel like I’m a piecie of sh*t compared to them. Sometimes I feel like there’s no point to continue, but then I recall the feeling I get when I draw. It’s an amazing feeling to have the ability to create something from nothing and I’m really grateful for what I have achieved through years of practice. If the final thing doesn’t come out how I wish then I start over until I’m satisfied. It doesn’t really matter that someone is better than you or me. Every artist has their own style in which they are best. We should be proud of ourselves and of what we are capable of because we deserve that. Keep your head up. We have something to show to the world. :)
thank youuuu x
hi! i used to use a grid when i first started drawing. it’s very helpful to keep good proportions. if you’re a beginner, then i advise you to start using grid and with time you’ll create your own sense of proportions and you will no longer need a grid. this is what i did. also i don’t trace any thing when drawing, i do all by myself.
another thing that could be helpful with keeping good proportions, especially when drawing a face, is measuring. for example, the space between eyes is usually the length of one eye (depends on the photo though). so if you draw an eye first, then you measure it and leave a blank space with the same length and there you start the other eye. i’m not really good at explaining, so here’s an example photo:
you can use this method also to draw other stuff.
hope i helped a little x
i don’t really know how to answer this. thank you? ok? then try? i guess all would work
