I'm wondering if it's ever possible to overcome the artistic block. I remember as a child I could care less what people thought of my drawings I just loved to draw, I loved thinking up new ideas. Much of my childhood I could tell you was joyful. When I got older one moment really changed my life, I guess there was a new artist in the class. His pieces were amazing he really made think hard about my dream to be an artist. My stuff looked so childlike while his was beyond amazing. I stopped drawing/art because of him, sad but true. I've tried picking up new things to replace art, but I guess the same thing over comes me I quit right in the middle of everything. I kind of went through a small depression, everything I start I no longer want to finish. I mean everything my hobbies, etc. It feels like I have lost the passion that I once did. I use to do stuff exhausted it to oblivion and still be able to enjoy it. As a child I remember spending hours just drawing with no care in the world. Now when I do have time I spend it surfing, nonproductive stuff, etc. I took 5+ year long break and I now I want to try again. It feels like my pieces are utter crap now. My drawings when I was 7 must of been amazing compared to the stuff I can produce now. It's like when I start a piece, after a few minutes I no longer want to continue.
If you keep drawing even through the most tedious painstakingly difficult moments, will that the love for art come back?
