I Get Intimidated Stamp by 02lyons I Get Intimidated Stamp by 02lyons

When browsing through some of DeviantART's greatest galleries, I don't get inspired by them, I get annoyed (and jealous) that I'm not that good. Yeah, that isn't really the attitude to have here, but I do feel that I'm getting better!

You don't have to favourite this if you use it, but please let me know if you do :D

For me, its more with music and fan fiction

Music, I got better (maybe even pro)

But fan fiction... I still suck

Haha, sad but occasionally true. This happens to me all the time, but thankfully I think I'm getting better with the self-confidence. :)

I can admit to getting intimidated when involved with other really great artists, it's a problem I need to work on but it's mostly due to fear of my future.

basically I want to go into some kind of illustration or concept art career (i personally prefer game development but I'd rather do that independent.) but when i search around here or look at places like concept i get really shaken by just how impressive and how I-can't-do-this-at-all their artwork is. and i feel that if i can't reach that level of drawing things to almost look real, then I fear that I won't make it in my career.

I'm more of a stylized artist, my style while still in development is a mix of eastern and western comic book styles. I'm not too fond of photo realism for the most part. but i feel that if i don't get to said point one day then I'll never make it out there.

it's an issue because I'll come across amazing artists that I really like but will never comment to, not out of spite or jealousy, but because I don't wish to leave any lead to my own currently sad excuse of a gallery. And the intimidation commonly stops me dead in my tracks when i try to draw or practice, and then if i still try I'm crappier than usual.

That and sometimes professionals on things tend to make things look scarier or harder than they really are, or have the difficulty of something speak for itself and they blow it off saying they can do it in their sleep.

hmm, I feel you! Sometimes I am inspired, sometimes intimidated. I usually feel inspired but if the art is REALLY good I feel sad. Like, some art is on a huge level that I feel like there's no way I'll ever get there.
I thought about it, and I realized that a lot of times that art intimidates me, the art isn't really "me" in the first place. Like, I don't know if you know feimo or heise but I love their art so much, and they draw in realistic style. I don't draw realism, why am I comparing my work to theirs? That is just one example. Whenever you feel intimidated just think about your own art style and your uniqueness and trust yourself and your abilities.
When I see art that IS closer to my style that is really good, I try to have hope and believe in myself.

So why would you be proud to show that?

When I feel intimidated by anything I never go about celebrating it, because it's a problem that needs solving, same goes for jelousy.

So good luck, you don't have to be inspired but never feel intimidated!

It's an opinion, no need to be rude, alot of people get intimidated, such as I, but I just draw anyways. ^^;
