Artist Confession by StarshipSorceress Artist Confession by StarshipSorceress
This is something I recently submitted to ArtistConfessions on Tumblr. It hasnt been posted by the moderaters yet, but it should be within a few days (edit: post is here: [link])

So why am I posting it here too, you ask? Simply because I also want my watchers to know something:

Improvement is not impossible.

I've had a few people tell me they will never improve and that they cant afford classes and that they wish they could be a better artist.

I'm here to say, you can.

90% of my improvement over the last 2-3 years is credit to online resources and a dedication to being better.

In the confession I basically state why it is I take time out of my day to help random strangers online who have questions about art. The reason is because if it werent for other people helping ME out all those years ago, I might not be where I am today.

So thank you people of the online art community. You have given me something that I can only hope to repay by helping the way you did.

Im not sure where to submit this. Memes? Memes.

I  wish to learn traditional & digital  painting but I  thought its too hard & I cant   do it.
After I read this confession I think that Im just lazy and if someone can improve to this work level  as  you did so why not me! :)
Thank you

It is pretty hard to learn how to draw and paint, even I still have a bajillion things to learn. But one day at a time, right? (:
It's hard to push myself to practice sometimes, but I do try to at least draw a little every day, even if it's just to color an unfinished sketch.
