I can see how someone else would--but it's hard for me to relate because I dream of having your talent and everything I could do with it. I wouldn't even consider myself an artist for what little talent I possess. I find it hard to imagine being able to create such beautiful works and not being happy. I know it's just a matter of perspective, though. I'm sure we're probably in similar spots--not being content with what we make. Even if I were at your level, I'd probably look at my art far too critically and be unhappy with it.

I don't think I'm consistent enough with that I produce to really get tired of my art :D but... I do tend to feel ashamed of the things I've drawn in the past quite fast.
I've only recently got comfortable with digital painting, so I'm working on a rather cool painting now (by my standards anyway!). I'm pretty impressed with myself at the moment actually :D

I get tired of my style, and the things I've been doing lately. Then I look for inspiration, and find new avenues to explore. :)

I'm happy with how good I am, it's just the never changing shading method that annoys me. All techniques I try always end up with the same result. :iconwhyyounoplz:

Quite frankly no. The reason for that is that I'm always trying to perfect my style and I can't do that if I do not like my works.
Also being a novel writer pushes my strive forward, but I cannot deny I take breaks so as to clear my head. But it is a good thing I can shift from drawing to writing and from writing to drawing about once-twice every week, otherwise I would take that break permanently. :raincloud:

Oh... yes :/
I loose pretty often interest in the piece I make atm, can't come out with anything better than what I have on sketch, or just lose faith in my abilities. Of course there are tons of many other reasons, but these are the most often ones.

i think every artist should realize there will always be someone out there better than them :shrug:

Any artist that's so satisfied with their work and skill either has their head up their butt /no talent OR has never had anyone give them a real criticism of their work. :/

there was this one girl in my class in art school that used to come up to me and show me her work. She'd have two of eh same images with ONE color change (like a dress or something) and would ask me about it. but it was constant.... like maybe she realized that she wasn't that good. :XD: and everytime she'd go to the professor to show a picture and someone walked up she'd start flipping through her ENTIRE sketch book...

like i'm not conceited, but i KNOW i'm good compared to the majority of students in my class because i have SEVEN years of photoshop and so i pick up quicker in other ADOBE programs as well as i had 6 art classes in highschool. i won lots of awards etc etc.

i can paint people. it doesn't make me a goddess of art :/ i totally KNOW that. I might have a 'natural' talent for it, but i still go through monthly art depressions, still have days where i want to STOP painting as i can't take how much i SUCK at it, still have days where i dont know what i want to do with art.

It's when you're humbled and you KNOW you have skill/talent/marketable work, yet understand that it doesn't end there. You HAVE to keep working, practicing, researching, comparing, and trying.

i mean, i've improved major loads since starting school (yet i've not had much time to work on personal paintings) but i STILL need to LEAP out of my comfort zone and try new things. Which i hope to do a lot of this summer! i need emotion, movement, animals, foliage, elements, men, etc (haha to paint men- i dont need them in rl LOL )

and as someone who gets a lot of 'hate' /teasing from other classmates because my work generally turns out better than theirs, i NEVER try to rub it in their face, i NEVER try to sound conceited, etc. When i won an award in the ADDY (one of the biggest art competitions in the US) i couldn't even surface an excited smile because i was afraid of sounding conceited :/ I try to take my skill and education and HELP others. I give them critique, i teach them shortcuts, i give them advice when they ask for it, etc. and i'm ALWAYS happy to receive critique from my classmates. That's one thing i dislike about being a tad beyond their level... they never want to critique ME *sighs*. sometimes i can't see my own mistakes, can't see i'm staying the same, can't see that my work is aged....

I refuse to be an artist skilled in douchebaggery -____-

sorry for LONG rant... but even if i do become successful later in life in my career, i hope i never get 'satisfied' with my work and i certainly NEVER want to rub my art in other peoples faces :X

All the time... it really helps to experiment a little, to know new artists, see new things and be open... is not like recollecting resources, but inspirations and see that not everything has been invented yet...

Even in writing, it's easy to get tired of what I'm working on. I have a handful of unfinished manuscripts lying around because by the time I neared the end, I had become sick of the material (or had found other problems with it). The best solution I've found for that is to move on to something else. I like to have at least two things going at a time in case I get stuck on one.

That's precisely what I always do when I get tired of a painting, just go back to another one or start sketching out a new idea I got. After a while something just clicks with the painting laid at rest and it's easier to go on.:)

I've kinda developed two styles a manga style and a tribal art style!!! I love them both and sometimes I mix them!!!! SO much fun!! But no because if I stopped drawing I'm sure my heart would stop and I would drop dead that second.
