Well, I've been a member of dArt for about 6 years now. Recently, I've been feeling anxious about my work. Is it good enough? I've found myself seeing and screwing over small imperfections in my drawings, usually small corners left uncoloured or such like. I've long since lost count of how many times I've "rectified", rescanned and updated my work. It's time-consuming - and also unsettling, because it gives me an impression that nothing I've ever done is noteworthy :(

I think the problem started because I felt my work wasn't getting enough recognition. Sure it got views (usually my most recent stuff) and has even been faved, but often not much feedback in the comments. I started getting the idea that my work was somehow "not good enough" or "mediocre". Is it because I still use the "old" technique of drawing and colouring on paper? Do I need to upgrade to a digital art program and produce more "pristine" and "up-to-date" art?

Please leave feedback! This sort of thing has been really bugging me recently, and I need some advice! Begging Emote

I don't know. I just faved the images because I really liked them, but I'm not sure how exactly they'll influence my art yet :shrug:
