Untitled (And unimportant, but still important.) by goRillA-iNK Untitled (And unimportant, but still important.) by goRillA-iNK

A moment of doubt is all it takes, and if that doubt sinks in and lingers too long, it will consume the artist leaving nothing behind but an empty shell of a person, for all to gawk at.

DON'T DOUBT YOU'RE SELF!
You got that, just be happy for who you are,
and don't listen to the crap that falls, and sometimes spews
out of the mouths of the ignorant and idiotic.



This is not directed to any commentator or critique of my art.
This is just what I see so many other artists are living with, and living around; at school, in the home, at work, or wherever the trolls and dream crushers lurk about.


I hope you like it.
Thank you for the views, faves, and comments.:heart:

This is full of truth. I occasionaly doubt myself. But sometimes a realy nice comment from anybody help me to forget this shit.
Studies are quite crual 'cause teacher gave us only poor comment on strange subjects. These people grade us on a conformism rate and not on the real talent.
I have seen, and i still can see, a lot of student hurted by that, and this typography focus on the problem very well in my opinion. During the month a lot of student finnish to accept that they are realy poor. I was in the same situation last year. until i realised that i shall not doubt myself. It's very destructive, uncreative and almost...NOT THE TRUTH!

so true... it's been eating up my life....

for three years now? I still write the fanfiction, though I feel it's quality is falling behind.... with all my grammar and spelling problems, D: I doubt I'll ever become a real writer because in the end:

everything has been done.

Though what I fear most is becoming an author like SM, the Twilight author. :(

I do not care so much about what others say, but there is this tiny voice in my head which sometimes tell me all those things. And that one is hard to ignore.

Sometimes I doubt myself, and wonder if my art is really bad. But I have learnt that I love doing it, and that most of the time people get happiness just by seeing me draw!
My art makes people happy, and it makes me happy too. and sometimes, that is all that matters. :)

Oh man. this is exaclty how I feel in these days. I'm about to finish my studies to the academy of fine arts, but my future is dark. Here in Italy, the "country where you can find the 60% of mondial art", my qualification is totally unuseful. Even if we pay taxes to the State like any else university, our qualification is less than a true degree like architecture or medicine. It's just a diploma. This means that we can't hope for jobs like teachers in the schools: a letters graduated would be chosen, even if it can't pick up a pencil. Some people are surprised when I say to them we do oral tests, they think we just enter there to paint on canvases like mentally handicapped people.

For this, I'm forced to be an art whore, if I want to survive. I'm loosing my identity just for eat three time per day.

I hope to be able to run away from this country of shit before it's too late.

I didn't know that this was happening nearly everywhere.
A degree in art whether a master's degree or if anything more, it takes a lot of self promotion to make
a real profit for yourself. It's hard out there in the world, (no matter where you live). An artist has to go beyond the limits we are bound by. Art is now a multifaceted. You have to able to work in any area and with every medium possible.

I've got to go right now, but I'll get back to this conversation ASAP! :)

Yeah it sucks when people think there art is not good even when they do extraordinary work. I've seen people give up on it because they didn't think it was ever good enough.

This is very meaningful. This kinda reminds me of my sister because when people don't like what she draws, she starts to doubt herself and her skill and she's an amazing manga artist.

Sadly this is the case for many aspiring artists and unrecognized artist too.
I think back over my life and how much I have created over the best years of my artistic life,
and I don't care all that much if I become famous or even rich. (Either of the two however probable, they are no longer all I wish for when creating my art.)
If my artwork has touch someone on an emotional level, then I've succeeded.
If my artwork is still bringing joy to others after I am long gone from this earth, then I've succeeded.
Last of all, if my artwork is remember somehow (due to some kind miracle no doubt)many, countless years from now, then I have succeeded and surpassed all of my expectations of being a truly great artist.
