I know it’s sappy and maybe even a little pretentious, but I really honestly think that anyone and everyone has some great potential as long as they apply themselves.
I know that for the longest time, I felt shitty about my work and often gave up because I didn’t think I was good enough to show off my stuff. But the fact of the matter is that anyone who tries and takes their work seriously is good enough to show off.
Like I said, as long as you’re willing to improve, take constructive feedback and never give up, you’ll make it in whatever you wanna do.
The images are of my own work, which you can check out at http://ealaincraft.deviantart.com/

“Recently, my friend has been telling me that she hates drawing around me because I’m better than her. It makes me feel terrible because I love her art! But she just won’t listen to me when I tell her it’s good. I’ve been going through major art block because of this!”
I’ve barely drawn anything in nearly two weeks, and what I have drawn has been mediocre and forced. I don’t know what to do, because I want to draw but also want her to! Her art style is lovely but she won’t acknowledge it.
How am I supposed to tell her that her attitude is giving me art block?

Every time someone says they cannot write an ethnic minority because they aren’t one and are scared of writing one wrong, I roll my eyes. Sorry but at least come up with a better excuse. If you can research a historical period or profession to work details into your story, then you can damn well write a character who happens to be African or Chinese or Indian. Go out and research for heaven’s sake. As long as you don’t write a blatant stereotype I really won’t mind. And by stereotypes I mean sexy latinos, angry black men and women, servile asian women etc. Just don’t write those.
Don’t even bring up the old maxim of write what you know especially in the fields of fantasy, science fiction and horror. I used to write a majority of Caucasian characters when I was younger because these were the characters I was used to seeing in fantasy and I’m frigging African. So because I’m African and female, should I only write an angry black woman or something? I wish I could see people expanding their horizons in genres like fantasy because for once I’d like to see someone a little like me. Someone who likes rock music and is a little bit antisocial. Someone who isn’t overly obsessed with boys or looking feminine. I’m sad that stories about minorities are mostly those issue ones. You know those ones about teen pregnancy or gang violence. I know people suffer from racism and prejudice and that makes me angry, but not everyone has been unlucky enough to experience them directly. I want to imagine I can be one of those fighting dragons and saving the world. But I guess if no one else will write that I will.
(Yeah the blurry, wonky eyed self portrait is by me)

I really love unauthorized-user’s art, she is very talented but she has a really low self-esteem, it really breaks my art, she keeps saying she is a failure, but she’s not! She is a sweety to all and did I already said her art is amazing?
Unfortunately, she barely has notes on her art, and that lowers her confidence…

Is it me or do all the faces in daekazu’s work look the same? :/
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy she’s finally taking the initiative, instead of being lazy!
But Chris Hart is literally one of the WORST people to learn from…just read the words on the side.
“art” by chris hart, found on google images.
Sometimes I get so in tune with painting that it becomes a form of hypnosis and I start snoring softly while working. It’s literally my escape from reality and it’s absolutely wonderful.

I know I want to improve my art, but I always seem to forget that most of these people are so much older than me. I’m only 15, but I know that I need to be the best if I want to get into a decent art school… People who are close to me love my art, but when I see artists on the internet with their interesting styles and skills I feel dwarfed by them. It takes me a while to realize that these people are on average ten years plus art school experience/education points ahead of me.
It’s a strange complex when you want to be as good as possible, but you don’t even know where the bar is that you want to pass.
