I've always wanted to be an artist. Everyday I practice, however there are some things that trouble me. I grew up with a sister who bullied me; the thing is is that she was an excellent artist but she would always tell me that I will never be an artist. She would always tell me that my drawings sucked.
Its been years since then but that thought has always bothered me and I constantly practice and practice but I can just never get better. Her words just keep holding me back. Are there any ways that I can overcome such insecurities?
As of now, I'm planning to take a bunch of art classes at my community college in addition to my University education(which is not art related). I'm hoping my experience with those could help me overcome it.
