Anyone who pursues art will always hate their work. I despise most things I've done, due to little flaws that always ruin it for you. My most recent piece

I could not do that. Or the likes of what artjunk has done beneath us.
I suck at realism. I suck at cartoon. I suck at anatomy. I suck at most things art related. But I used to suck more, so I guess that means I've improved over the years..

This little bastard took me about 9 hours. I ain't joking. And that's great, because I usually don't have the attention span to draw more than 30 minutes.

Thats awesome! With me, attention span and patience came with time. still not fully there, this should have been a lot better. I can pick out 10 x more flaws than the anons have

Agreed, I vary a lot from comic-style to realism and concept art, but no matter which I'm working on I find flaws in damn near everything.

It's just part of being an artist though, I find it helps me to want to keep growing when i find these kinds of flaws. Just serves to give you perspective on where you're at compared to where you hope to be.

What you said is very true. I tried to draw till lindemann, and i kept trying to fix it but i can't fix the mistakes. (i gave up around the shirt) and the thing with faces is that one mistake will ruin the portrait. I like your painting by the way, i wish i could blend color like that. What medium did you use?

Good attempt! Proportions are good just need to be softer imo. And I use prismacolor premier pencil crayons :)

this came out much better i think. the chick looks weird but till and the wolf look alright. For this one I used charcoal. I usually use shading pencils though. When I do paint (rarely) I just use acrylic.

Yeah I started myself just over a year ago after rekindling it as a passion. Dropped out of uni to pursue it (So been trying hard). Hopefully have a tattoo apprenticeship soon

Probably the only person to say that! Was battered on constant for it, think it was due to me being at a very prestigious uni!

it's because people are constantly being molded into one form. even me slowly. if someone doesn't conform they stick out and that annoys people. So if you can press on regardless, you go for it.

Very true. At the moment I'm just in a supermarket job paying for my equipment and ****, so it doesn't look good on my part. you got instagram btw? You need to login to view this link :) Always put my work on there

Don't be silly! do you study and research a lot? I'm very influenced by many other tattoo artists so I just try to be like them really.

i don't actually because i can only draw when i'm in the zone which only comes every 2 months or so.

this is a tulip i painted when i was in that zone 4 months ago.
