Sometimes... by RaveTuba Sometimes... by RaveTuba
"Some times you shine so bright you blind me..."

I'm sorry everyone...
I know what you are going to say...

I just.. don't know...

I don't even try that hard...
i just can't stop thinking this way...

I look at people around me... making stuff I allways wanted to...

But F me... They trained! they worked from my level to what they are today... They didn't turn out AMAZING from day to night...

i know that... but ... even though I want so badly to be like them...

And worse... when I have a perfect chance to just stop, analise, and learn... try out new things...

BUt nope, I'm not going to change.,.. I think I just have to accept the fact that I'll allways feel like this when I look at them...

F** my way of thinking...

I have something to say and you will read it.

First- I think I came too two months but this drawing that you have made...Its really sad for me to know how you feel.
Because now I feel like some kind of obstacle that doesn't let you to enjoy to what you really love to do.

So please, let me to share some things that I learned with my own experience:

"The artist who aims at the perfection in everything achieves it in nothing"
Never let fool yourself with the fact that great art = perfection, when you focus way too much in perfection, it stops being art, you lose yourself in frustrating loop of fails where you realize that nothing you do is perfect, It happened to me and I realized that seeking perfection is like trying to catch fire with bare hands, you will achieve nothing more than hurting yourself.
And this leads to second quote

"Every artist has a 10000 of bad drawings inside of them so its best to get them out NOW!"
It means that you have to practice, practice a lot, and don't forget the first rule, practicing is not seeking perfection, practicing, is just drawing stuff from your imagination, copying real life objects, drawing circles, etc.... let your arm flow like water and don't think, don't worry about mistakes, dont worry if something looks wrong, because you can fix everything, practicing is just carrying on, not letting yourself stuck, and most important, having fun"
and finally it leads to my personal favourite

" So shut the fuck up, stop whining and get to work "
That! That how to shot motivation in someone's face haha , You don't believe how this phrase helped me when I was stuck with my art, when everything looked bad, and I thought that I've already offered everything that I could, just read that line. Post it in on the wall in front of you, and always have sketchbook by your hand, sometimes I just need to admit that the only thing that I do is whine about how not god I am and not actually trying to do something about it, whining and complaining is always easier than actually try to start something :3

I'm sorry for writing such a bible here but those are essential things that you must remember when you're feeling down, educate yourself, grab some power with your hands and believe in yourself, because me and other people also believe in you

TL : DR version:
:iconrainbowdashlouderplz: :iconsaysplz: :heart::heart::heart:Shut the fuck up, stop whining and get to work :heart::heart::heart:
and happy late Christmas ^^"

I really apreciate all that you wrote her,
but I know all of that,
I don't seek perfection,
I just see perfection on other's
and I want that too,
but it seems everytime I achive something
that perfection just smidges a bit further,

but that's not the point of all this.
Really, I'm whining about something that I know I'm doing wrong.
I don't even work hard. How am I to achive something without working hard?
I really shouldn't have posted this drawing.
Because I'm the one that has a wrong way of thinking

I'm sorry I made you write all that master,
I'll try and work harder...
I'll try...

I'll stop whining now
and work...

And hapy late christmas as well...

Then you think wrong about "working hard"

What kind of motivation drives you to draw? Push motivation - I must draw something because others also do; or pull motivation - I have some great ideas and I want to draw them.

because "working hard" sounds like you're pushing yourself to draw, that's worst thing that you could do
RaveTuba Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I understand.
but working hard for me means, trying different things, trying things so that others turn out better, and to do that more then once, do it millions of times untill it gets (well I wouldn't say "perfect" since we already did go about that) but at least good...
I don't do that... I just draw without practicing.
and thus I fail,
so I really shouldn't be complaining...

"Every 4.9 days Alumx uploads a new deviation"

"Every 0.7 days RaveTuba uploads a new deviation"

Here's real proof that you draw and practice way more than I do
RaveTuba Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
the pools are rigged!

should be:

"Every 4.9 days Alumx uploads a new deviation that is worth seeing and has dedication"
"Every 0.7 days RaveTuba uploads a new deviation that mostly sucks balls and needs revising..."

Well thats just your opinion, for me all my drawings have some annoying mistakes that I can only see after uploading.
The fact are numbers, and you're doing much more than I do
RaveTuba Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
errr, sorry...
you lost me when you said "the facts are numbers"
I don't want to be agressive, but I entirely disagere with you on that one...

Facts, have nothing, to do with numbers...

Dude, as I said multiple times, you are as good or better as me, the only difference is that I spend way more time on a single drawing making it seem like im better at it, in a time trial you would beat in a sec!!
