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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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.

Thank you for this stamp-- it's a good reminder to keep your chin up. It's hard to do that with some of the tendencies of DA to favor already awesome artists and not give up-and-coming artists a hand/encouragement. :"3
