This has been something that has been bothering me for the past few years, every time I encounter someone who’s just started as an artist, they put themselves down because they’re intimidated by artists who are more experienced.  Intimidation is something that every artist has (or will) encounter in their lives, and they need to pull through that fear in order to grow as an artist.  Take that intimidation and be inspired about it.  What makes it intimidating?  What makes their work look so unique?  That’s where your learning opportunistic moments will occur, you find those reasons and you create something new out of all that you’ve learned!
I believe that anyone, ANYONE, can become an artist.  It takes dedication and determination, but I promise you that drawing is one of the most rewarding art forms I’ve ever experienced.  You will always learn something new with it, therefore, the fun never stops!

Its relevant to many aspiring artists. 

Wow. This is incredibly relevant.

So, I always thought that inspiration and intimidation is the difference between those who give up in art and those who keep going. We all get discouraged sometimes but great art isn’t (or shouldn’t be) demoralizing. Great art should act as an impetus. It should be that thing we aim for, not be discouraged by. Art is like everything else and while some may have more inherent ‘talent’ than others, you only improve by working at it and refining your skill. And working at it. Consistently. Persistently.

Everyone starts at the same point, everyone has to work their way up one step — or drawing — at a time. It’s worth it, so worth it for the breakthrough moments, the moments where you finally understand how to do that thing that has been driving you to frustration for months. IF YOU DRAW AT ALL YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. This is the best feeling in the world for an artist, when you have hit a plateau, become stuck there for a while but eventually find that yes, you can climb higher still.
