Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-18
My Art Sucks -Article Stamp by =DoItForTheLulz makes me feel more confident and happy about my own art, because it made me realize, that I CAN get better, and I hope other deviants can feel that way too if they see this stamp.

[dA related > Deviant Stamps] ( Suggested by Zelir and Featured by ginkgografix )
This stamp encourages people who think their art is horrible, many artist always say in their comments "My art sucks"and almost never say "I will get better". This is truly an amazing stamp that encourages people to like what they do. This stamp deserves attention. A lots of people don't give enough attention to try and be better, many people can be encouraged to get better, so many people are very pessimistic. The award that this deviation got was spot on. If you keep more like this coming more artist will have a better time doing their art. Thank you for this deviation.

Thank you for making this now a feel a little more inspired to draw!Thanks!

Still the best most encouraging thing I've ever come across. Ever. 
So hard not to hate my art and then myself because it's all I'm good at and it's not good enough according to my own standards yet.

This is really something I need to say more often. And congrats on the DD!

I do this kind of thing, all the time. Most of the time, I rant about the anatomy and sometimes the shading, yet if I don't keep drawing, how else will I get better?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

One man's trash (ugly) is another man's treasure (beauty).

It's sad when a person with the heart and potential to make awesome artworks gets frustrated and gives up something that could bring out so much, expressing his feelings and personality in such a beautiful way. That's what comes into my mind when I have a bad drawing day. I would regret it eternally to despise the thing I love to do the most. Drawing. <3

I also support drawings that look like a seven year old drew them!

I sometimes feel that my art skills started sucking up on me, but this awesome stamp made me think otherwise. =) In other words: True dat. :nod:
Birdie121 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I totally agree! I hate when people just can't stop putting themselves down about their art! Saying "my art sucks" is basically just asking for attention so that people will say "no it doesn't!" and shower you with compliments. But saying "My art sucks right now, but I will get better with more practice" shows that you are aware that you're not amazing, so it shows modesty, and it also shows confidence in your future abilities that will come with practice. :D
happyorangeplz Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
So do you read thoughts? People who say "my art sucks" are just expressing themselves, their frustration. If others are eager in replying "no it doesn't!" that's their problem. How do you know they aren't practing? Nobody has to say such a gigantic sentence after a terrible week, specially at the end of a stressful day full of work just to show something to people who lacks so much imagination or thought.
Birdie121 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I was just saying what I've noticed. The people who I personally know who complain about their art tend to be the big attention seekers, and because they put themselves down all the time, they give up frequently and don't practice. Therefore they don't improve quickly, and it just turns into a big endless circle of frustration. If one is optimistic, I've witnessed, they tend to dedicate themselves more to their art and end up becoming very experienced artists quite quickly. I didn't write that comment rashly or without any evidence to my argument. I'm sure not everyone who complains about their art is like that, but that has been the trend that I have noticed in my own observations.
RyouYamiBakura Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
I found I did this a lot, and unfortunately, still do. In my opinion, it is an attention seeker.

aw~ haha i always say my artwork sucks xD but this stamp is just so cute X3 i made a deal with my friend that once i got 5,000pgvs (which i already got =w= ) i would stop saying that xD
Purgarot Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
I feel that most people say this just to get people to say "naww nawwwww you're great!"

honestly, how would they react if you agreed?
RedcurrantSmoothie Featured By Owner May 2, 2011
I need to say this! I often think my art sucks, but then I look back at my early stuff (which truly did suck) and then look at my newer stuff, and see that it has improved. I know I'm not the best artist, but I know I'm not the worst, and I ENJOY drawing and I intend to keep doing it :)
SpiritoftheGauntlets Featured By Owner May 1, 2011
I'm totally going to link people to this when they say that.
tonykaz1 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
I like it. I'm sure a lot of people have a tendency to self-deprecate and this is a little reminder to temper that with some optimism.
Into-Oblivion97 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
No shit. I can take one of my drawings from last year, hell, i can take one from 3 months ago, and you can SEE the improvements. It makes me so goddamn fucking happy. Because then i think about how much i could improve in 2 years, or 5 years, or 10 years.
Cryptidseeker101 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011

When I first started drawing....I wasn't the greatest.

But if you look at stuff from the begining of the school year, compared to now....I'd say I did get better!
satanswife0 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011
no one has the right to say this word "sucks" .. no one sucks XD we all improve :P . gosh ppl nowaday r so fucking rude and mean .
AssClownFish Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011
Actually everyone has the right to say the word "sucks". As people have opinions.
satanswife0 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011

I do this to cheer myself up when I don't improve when I want to (as if you can schedual improvement) or when I compare my art to better artists and get upset. It really helps to calm me down, like a self-peptalk. :)
