XD I… sorta agree with that. I mean, yeah, people are pretty judgemental of their own artwork, but for me, that’s because I honestly know I could have done better had I tried harder. It’s just based on the standard you set for yourself. I know people who will paint something and love it where if I had done that same job myself I would absolutely hate it. (Yup, being a total narcissist over here… sorry. XD) *shrugs* Sometimes, though, we will meet our standards. It’s rare, but I’ve done it a few times. Of course, I raised my standard even higher after finishing those projects, but… yeah. You just have to choose how far you wanna take it. ‘Cause anything can be art.

Oh yeah, I totally get what you’re saying. I didn’t mean no one ever makes anything they’re happy with, I just meant that more than most artists aren’t happy with their skill level. Every artist wants to be better. Or at least, every artist older than 6 years old. xD

Laughs Yep. That’s a good thing, though. 😉
What was the first project that you were proud of?

@lianajdouglas Ooh.. That’s a tough question. I’d have to look through my first sketchbook probably. (Which, now I feel inspired to go do. Maybe I’ll post a picture later haha.)
Do you know what the first project you were proud of is?

Here’s a thing I did the other day after watching the new star wars teaser trailer. Ray isn’t on my list of favorite characters, but I really love her character design, so I couldn’t help but do a quick sketch of her.

Oof, I was trying to think. There was a worldbuilding project I did with my cousins that was really cool. And that time my cousin and I both drew a castle together. That was fun. We took turns holding the pencil and adding on. XD It’s probably got something to do with my cousins, but…
Oh, wait! I know! I filled this whole notebook with dress designs that I had copied and made based off of Frozen, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and so forth. Looking at them now, they’re pretty terrible, but I loved that notebook to death. I should pick that up and try it again. It was fun. Blinks ‘Cept I hate wearing dresses… Oh, well.
Hey, that’s cool! I need to get into drawing more characters from films.

Aww!! Thank you!!! I love my Janner and Sara Cobbler picture… I know it’s not the most spectacular thing I’ve ever done or anything, but… It’s Janner and Sara Cobbler, how can I not adore them?? I did it while camping and my sister had to make me close my sketchbook and turn off the light so we could go to bed. XD
I’m really not a very good artist at all… I just have had practice playing with colored pencils and drawing for years and enjoy doing it, but thank you!!! 🙂 <3

Here’s some!! I redid it a tad to make it look more realistic(bc I know more about drawing than I did back when I drew it), but otherwise it’s still pretty much the same pic!!
They’re characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe/Legends books. 🙂

@kari-karast It’s not showing up for me right now. It’s probably an issue on my end tho, not yours. I live in the country and sometimes the internet connection is really weak and things get weird.
(I bet it looks amazing tho)

Aww. I can try reposting it through a different… um… thing. XD I copied the image adress in a weird way this time instead of putting in images from my downloads cuz my computer is evil and hates me and won’t let me have any storage space for some really weird and unknown reason.
