Thank you, anon! :D
Okay, I’m feeling better after that post.
It’s just that I read an ~inspirational~ article about some award-winner earlier, and it made me… deeply bitter. Both because of my own personal inadequacies and the circumstances leading up to them.
I’m also under stress due to school soon starting and related issues, so I’m just not… very happy right now. And yeah, some of it is my fault. At least this time I can say I spent the time when I should have been working harder having a good time, rather than having my time chewed up with some random bullshit or curling up and blindly hiding from the stressful obligations. That’s an improvement from… I don’t even want to know. It’s been years.
I’ve fucked about for so long. Partly out of depression, partly for environmental reasons, partly because I didn’t even fucking know how to do anything else. Like. Outside of aimlessly wandering fandom, I lacked a good concept of what it was to do something major without being obligated to do it. Part of that is because I have genuine mental dysfunctions (I knooooow), but part of that is because whenever I tried before, I was basically pushed back into obligatory work with a handwave that, after the next major goal, I could think about other things. And then, no, it was actually after the major goal after that. But I’d get there! Oh, I’d get there someday!
Yes, around the time I’ll get my all-expenses-paid trip to Sugarcandy Mountain. Pfft. Anyway, I’m doing better than this time last year. Ignore the bitterness - it’s preferable to the depression from knowing my life was FUBAR and not really grasping why. Nowadays I’m just frustrated because some things seem as insurmountable as ever and yet I’ve straightened my head out enough that I know just hiding from them won’t make an ounce of difference. All I can do is flop and smash my way forward.
Hope you’re all doing well!
- Me: I'm giving up on this because continuing to try just results in humiliating failures. I don't enjoy humiliating failures.
- Other People: OMG ur such a quitter how dare u we didn't think u were that sort of person! >:(((((((
- Me: Okay, I'm persisting in doing something despite receiving several humiliating failures along the way, because I really think I can -
- Other People: LMAO ur so stupid! :)))))) u just don't know what ur doing, u shouldn't even try. but we'll just leave u to fail because we know u'll admit we're right in the end :)))))))))
There was going to be a rant here. It’s gone now.
I just wish I was as smart as the people in fluffy PR news articles. Like ‘Oh, they’re so smart, and they think so cleverly, and they’re so ambitious, and they’re so accepting of hardship on their way to their goal, and [insert the rest of the usual litany here] (uwu)’.
when you feel jealous or bitter over an artist’s achievements, always remember: people only show what they want to show of their art
you would be surprised how hilariously bad some sketches of even experienced artists can look, and I don’t mean that in an insulting way. Also don’t think of the pics with the ‘man, such a sloppy doodle’ descriptions, I mean the truly horrible scribbles everybody does in their freetime. Even the most experienced artists have sketches that look like they had no orientation of lines in mind, with one arm going over the entire body and the other being half the length, etc, and that’s the COLD HARD AND WONDERFUL TRUTH
No artist you look at does perfect work all the time, as hard as it is to imagine.
Any artist wants to give off the best impression they can, so frankly the very flawed looking stuff stays on a few papers at home without ever facing the internet or even close friends
Similarily to how most people won’t go outside in a t-shirt with ten coffee stains and three holes in it, chances are you’ve never seen what /truly/ sloppy and disoriented sketches very good artists are capable of.
So if something of yours doesn’t look perfect, and you look at people with all these wonderful sketches on the internet, remember; they very likely have those exact moments of doubt as well.
