    I listened to everyone around me that said you couldn't make a living out of an art-career and picked a career in biology instead of art... I was 18 and very susceptible. I regret not going into art to this very day, even more the more I draw it seems.

    I regret starting with manga because it's an uphill battle reteaching myself how to draw. The best way I could describe it is if you had to rewire an electrical system and found that the last electrician had tied all the wires into big wire balls, likely to piss off whomever came after him. So, you have to sit there, taking everything apart, correcting his mistakes and still rewire the damn thing.

    My biggest fear is that I'll eventually give up and submit myself to an eternity of suckdom.
    I have a sketchbook. Why don't you go look? http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...47#post3481447

    It's an uphill battle for anyone to learn to draw whatever style they started with. Manga is not your problem. Learning to draw what you see is your problem, possibly coupled with the fact that you just don't seem to do it very often.

    You don't need to unlearn anything to move on, you just need to pick up some new skills and knowledge.

    It's natural to all artists just a phase you're going through you'll get there as long you keep drawing

    its realistically looking like its not going to happen, and i regret making that decision.
    I regret not seeing this post sooner, so I know how to deal with this person's piss poor attitude.

    oh yeah and there was this one girl that I regret...actually there were a few...Oh regret memories if only.

    I regret not standing up for myself when I had to and being overconfident which stopped me from observing my surroundings. I also regret listening to others and thinking that art was worthless because many think it is just ''playing". My biggest fear is showing my art to my family, I've never liked that!

    I never liked showing art to family and friends because it's always "Oh Wow that's amazing. Did you go to art school? Wish I could do that. etc etc".

    Almost never honest constructive criticism. Asspats are nice. But I was asspatted constantly until I came here years ago and realized "Oh.... .. I should practice more. I'm ... not.... the shit?"

    JFierce Yeah I know I get it to I want honest criticism to but friends and family never want to tell you straight up and then when I tell them its not good they say sell that art as usual its sickening

    another thing I regret is asking stupid questions when I know the answers

    My greatest fear is to let unfinished another try at doin something with my life. Already left architecture and biology, can't be wrong this time AGAIN.

    I still regret this... And probably will always regret, even more when I see people like Miles who started to take art seriously with 13~14 years. But I still don't know how a kid can be that focused on something, when there are so many things new in that stage of life.

    Yeah, earlier this year I sold my Intuos4(large) almost unused because "I didn't have time to use it". Now I want another one and can't afford to buy a new and can't find a used one to buy. Bad decisions everywhere... ¬¬
