    I know a lot of people seem to agree with this, but I just can't buy it at all. Becoming content with bad work, because it's 'awesomely bad', or whatever is a bad strategy, for sure. It leads to contentment, which leads to laziness, which limits your growth, and then you could very well ruin your future.

    Fuck no, yo.

    Inspirational?

    Fuck yeah!

    Makes sense?

    Fuck no!

    But does it work?

    Fuck yeah!

    Nice to know there are other self-hating, useless, lazy artists out there.

    Go Team America. F--- Yeah. Oh, It is nice that you have two words to say to the world. I personally would like to have, say a book, or building, to tell what is on ones mind or minds. And also, Everyone w/ this organization, as it is called, puts a piece of them into the most minute of "drawings". So, call Your works a failure, I shall call mine another piece to the puzzle. And maybe, we just mite stunn one another.

    I wish I was living in an English-speaking country so I could say "Fuck yeah" more often. Who cares, I'm gonna say it anyway. Auch in deutschen Gesprächen. Fuck yeah!

    It's going to be in my signature in another board now.

    Refreshing to read through given the recent Artsy mopefests as Dave P mentioned. Everyone deals with some kind of frustration, but its a waste of time to dwell.

    I don't think anyone is saying you shouldn't try to improve and be the best artist you can be. The point is that you need to lighten up and just draw. Not everything you create is going to be perfect, so the sooner you accept that it's okay to draw crap sometimes, the sooner you can get back to drawing and learning.

    Exactly. The point is to stop being afraid of drawing.

    Couldn't disagree more. The best drawing advice you could ever give a frustrated artist is, "Don't be afraid to draw bad." Why? Because you have to accept the bad before you can ever get to the good. That's what this thread is about -- encouraging you to stop being afraid. What is going to happen if you make a "bad" drawing? You will learn from it. And beyond that, you will learn to love drawing and making art. And if things are going badly at the moment? If the drawing before you is a heaping pile of crap that you want to throw into the incinerator? Well guess what, you don't have to be mad, you can just be excited about art, be excited about drawing. The bad stuff is just as awesome as the good, because it's human, it's part of art, and it's a natural and necessary part of the journey forward.

    Yes.

    Very, very, very, very much so.

    I realize that the rest of the thread has been a free for all to say "FUCK YEAH",(not that the enthusiasm isn't appreciated at all) but I would like to at least have a little discussion - in which jovian's comment is a good starting point - and for something for you guys to discuss about - If you did adopt this "fuck yeah" attitude, then are you being complacent, or liberating yourself from being afraid?

    Feel free to connect this into as many tangents as possible.

    This thread resonates for me, especially now. I've been frustrated for a long time because I can never finish work, for one of two, if not both, reasons; I lose that initial inspiration after working on it for so long or I find something that I consider horribly wrong with it and consider it past the point of fixing.

    I've got probably more than one hundred works that were intended to be "finished pieces", that never made it to that point, but they all "lie on the brink" of being complete. It is so frustrating, as it has impeded me from completing my online portfolio, updating my blog and seeking new freelance work outside of my normal job. I never feel that I am ready enough.

    This helps me a little though, at least embracing the act of art until it yields something noteworthy.

    Fuck yeah!

    Thumbs up

    Just happened to see this thread; thanks to those who helped to bump it up.

    This thread couldn't have come at a better time, when I'm being tormented by my own sucky art like Van Gogh once did. Now after reading this, I feel so much better.

    Fuck yeah, my art gets worse by the minute, but I'm gonna draw anyway! Fuck yeah!

    I cut the tips of my fingers on paper and each time I hold the pen it stings like a bitch. Fuck yeah! I won't let something such trivial stop me from drawing.


    I love your philosophy.

    I honestly feel like it's freed me up to doodle as i wish, without feeling the need to draw well each time! Isnt it nice to be able to draw without restraint? Without seeking perfection each time? And when you do, and fail, you can still go AWESOME anyway? Either way you've learned something having sat your ass down to draw, and being able to pull positive motivation off an otherwise negative situation is an awesome way to go.

    So, im off to draw. And fail. Or maybe, maybe, do something ok. Either way, however it turns out, I'm ok with it.

    Am i gunna enjoy myself?

    FUCK YEAH!!!
