Plucked Feathers by Raayzel Plucked Feathers by Raayzel
"Stop plucking those feathers of yours, you'll only hurt yourself in the end."

I have one bad habit that i'd really liked to get rid of. Being a perfectionist.

It's horrible and stupid. It was once something i stupidly took pride in, but now it's only a setback for the things i wish to do well in. Because of this I end up stressing and hurting myself, wanting more each time and constantly pushing myself. Thinking this isn't good enough, i should be doing better or improving faster. It’s awful, but I just can’t seem to get rid of it.

Hey guys! Surprise!..i'm not dead. The past few months have just been really stressful for me. I drew this piece to relax, because i love drawing portraits the most. I tried to add a bit of symbolism(?) to it, but um yeah...

I'm a perfectionist about my art.. well most of the time.. I just can't get something perfect... Then I'll just quit.. So Most of the time I hardy have any drawings at all.. It stresses me out and I always wanna be better and it just makes me depressed about how I can't draw like someone else..Sad dummy Sad fayse. :meh: :slump:

Oh i definitely get that feeling a lot, usually it gets to the point where i just feel like giving up. But to get rid of it, i try to remember that those godly artists draw like its their life and it's all just perseverance in the end. You can go as slow as you want, as long as you draw for yourself and get to your goal at the end ^^ ///sorryifthiswasntmuchhelp ><

aw thank you so much, im honored! And don't worry, i'm pretty sure all artists suffer through that. It's a constant thing I have to deal with, wishing to better than where I am atm. But I just try to convince myself to relax and let time and practice do its thing ^^
