I'm OP, what you say is true but it doesn't mean you can't let out some steam on /ic/ once in a while, that's what it's for. As a matter of fact I haven't drawn as much as I have today for a long time, it was mostly shit but I'm over it now, back to the regular grind. What's on your mind anon ? let it out

Well I'm rather susceptible to mood changes so I'm either manic or depressed all the time. And I hate my job so I'm stressed out and I've had clinical depression for like... 20 years and been single for about 2 not to mention that I've been sucked into politics since 2016 so I'm constantly stressed about that and list all my friends over it so... Not great op. It's hard to draw when you have no energy. So I draw asses because I feel like ass.

I just mix and match, choose someone you trust the most and take others with a grain of salt.

>>3954666
You often don't realize you improved until you redraw, you think you're still stuck at the skill from 1-2 years ago but it's not true.

>>3954778
Spending more time isn't better remember it anon. It's probably better to practice those things separately than on one piece. Even if you end up without any drawings to post.

>>3955150
>think I've finally mastered
Change your mindset, this kills.

>>3957771
Not finishing isn't inherently a bad thing, try new stuff and get out of your comfort zone, that's what I did and the gains were drastic. Because I went out of the comfort zone and this applies to everyone
>>
>>3960798
I know that feel anon. Perhaps it is possible to fix it using levels or so. I haven't tried with mine. Nothing else to do than buying a new screen. Or a new laptop or a tablet with a display.

>>3962601
Hits home, I've completely stopped drawing for two years or so when depression stroke badly. It's painfully common. I tried to get into it again and looked for new inspiration, getting out of the comfort zone. It was difficult and I feel extreme guilt towards myself over the years lost. But you can catch up if you try hard enough. I feel misery, fury and injustice looking at people my age who never struggled with anything, while barely being able to shower yet alone draw. Seeing them being able to draw hours a day, because it comes naturally, being able to work on building up their skills without any issues, while I sit there all in sweat crippled by extreme guilt, stuffing myself with pills to ward off schizophrenia relapses and trying to draw anything while intrusive thoughts repeatedly tell me I should an hero because I wasted my life not drawing enough, that I've been drawing for thousands of hours over 15 years and I'm still utter shit and ngmi. I know this feel and many others do too. The only thing I can say, show those fuckers by improving despite all the struggle, get out of your comfort zone and you will see the sudden gains. Try to stop being bitter, trust me I know, but it's better for yourself to combat it. You'll end up being miserable, remember in this time you could improve. Bitterness seriously cripples improvement, and remember it's 99% not talent it's hard work, people who are better than you simply practiced more than you. Unless you REALLY don't have it, but otherwise it's a matter of mindset. So good luck anon.

>>3964484
Try to find a new approach to study this area, you'll understand it better

>>3969572
You have to get used to this. Everyone experiences this and it won't stop. Likes and retweets aren't a measure of how good something is by any chance. It's a measure how well it appeals to the public.
>>3971944
Try to get out of politics, I did for the sake of my mental health after seeing what it's done to my father. I know it's easy to say. But it takes a significant toll on your mental health. For self care, greatly distance yourself from it. See my reply to another depressed anon btw.

>>3962601
>>3977375
In order to stop the bitterness, you have to find the source of it. Try to humble yourself to it, the process and end goals, to yourself, and to people better or worse off than you. Once you take out the false dichotomy of a winning side and a losing side, you will be able to better focus on the natural best course of action for yourself.
/ic/ likes to use the word detached, but I think it's a bit misleading. How are you going to pursue what you love and detach, meanwhile deriving the greatest satisfaction from the pursuit? It's the opposite of "feel it."
Good luck anons
