That was exactly the problem. I didn't see any growth. now the last weeks I see growth, because I went back to my roots. It's there I found myself back. Nothing is worse then hearing (and seeing it yourself) that your newer work is worse then your older. Now I finally feel that my work gets a bit better again. I'm a bit more proud again, though there are still things that could get better ofcourse.
How comes we don't see mistakes in great artist's work? I wonder if they feel/felt the same way.

I really love this forum because it helps out a lot of artists in a nice way (constructive criticism, etc.). Thank you for posting this.
instead of thinking about sketching, try holding a pencil in your hand for 5 minutes in front of a piece of paper thats what i do and usually works i am drawing in no time

Don't get me wrong; every day, I spare at the very least 15 minutes for drawing. But as someone who'd prefer to be able to consistently spare two hours at minimum, it's rather worrying.
It's just too bad that people can't just shut off their feelings like they could flip a switch. Would be nice to be able to only be self-critical AFTER a drawing has been made :/

This is so awesome, I will read an item every time I feel like quitting, thank you very much!
Do people actually have fun drawing? I can't remember the last time I did.
I am so in need of this thread. I hit the wall, and just feel overwhelmed and confused. I knew joining up here even as intimidating as it is...was the right call.
I've wanted this so long and I am tired of going in circles.
