Far too many times have I seen posts and comics that have a similar subject but end with “lol quitting art 4ever” when they see a good artist who is younger than themselves. When in reality it only means that you can learn from this person!
This is so important for young and old creators alike! I’ve had people over the years tell me similar things, and.. I dunno, it’s a little confusing and almost a little hurtful for me, to be honest. I don’t want my skills to be something to dissuade people to make art: I want them to inspire others regardless of my age. :>
Please, always keep in mind that everyone learns differently—everyone has different paces, techniques, and sources of their artistic capabilities—but everyone has the potential to be awesome in their own ways!
So if you see me or an even younger person sharing their creations and catch yourself thinking, “They’re doing better than me! :((((“—Take a deep breath, re-frame those negative thoughts, and let’s learn together~
