Another rant

Journal Entry: Wed May 6, 2015, 11:24 AM
  • Mood: Thrilled

How cliché. Another person ranting about their miserable life, online. I know.
But that is what this journal is going to be. It’s not pleasant, I quite agree if you ask me.  However, if you’re not interested or something, you’re free to go. No hard feelings.

I don’t even know where I’m going with this. I just need to get it off my head. It’s staining my brain, it’s driving me crazy. And I hate this feeling more than anything.

It’s been a couple of weeks since this all started. And it made me think.
I don’t consider myself to be some kind of ‘talented’ person, or some ‘wonderful artist’. Nothing like this, actually. I don’t get constructive criticism on my art, I don’t have people or friends who want to see more of my stuff, so I can’t help but feel that way. I’ve noticed that most of my watchers aren’t active anymore, and I blame myself for this. Trying to figure out in what way I fucked up.

Do I act like a snob? Am I ungrateful? I don’t know.

I’m just another human being, that doesn’t know what the hell they’re doing with their life. I literally have no clue where I’m going. I don’t have a dream, a goal. I never really accomplished anything, ever, so it’s more than safe to say, I’m average. Maybe even below average.
Also, in all honesty, I’m not fishing for compliments here. So if you were thinking that this is the case, it’s not.

Another thing I feel the need to point out, is that MrtViolet is a character. A persona if you prefer. My artist personality. Behind that, there’s an extremely insecure person that hesitates to do everything, and lately feels like she’s about to collapse.
Every single move I make, as Myrto (yeah, that’s my name), is being criticized in the worst, most rude way, 24/7. And the only time I feel confident or strong, is when I have the MrtViolet ‘mask’ on. But guess what. Even that’s not working anymore. I find myself unable to even draw a stick figure, and that sucks big time.

 

I don’t know what more to say.
No lovely punchline here.

Thank you for the llama, Myrto!

I read your journal and I understand the sentiment.  Therefore, I will offer my unedited, honest opinion.

As your art goes, I think your talent or strength lies in your storytelling (through images and words), composition, and the way your portray emotion.  Where you can really improve (anatomy, understanding of light/color/value) are all things that everyone learns through studying and practice- not some arbitrarily defined 'talent'.  You can express yourself truly, unabashedly, and honestly through art, and that's talent in my opinion- not the ability to draw photorealistically. 

Your manga Violet was incredible and truly a gift to the genre.  I've read plenty of published, professional manga that have much more polished/detailed artwork or a much more complex storyline, but they didn't have the compelling, emotional, metaphorically resonant, personal feeling yours did.  It seems it's truly a labor of love for you, and I really respect that.

This is on of those comments you read over and over again, and still find it so difficult to believe.. This is honestly what I've been looking for! An honest, bold opinion and constructive criticism, without any 'sugar coating'.
Thank you. Thank you so much for this.

No problem.  It was my pleasure.  If you ever want specific criticism on a piece, feel free to send me a note with a link!

I've also found that asking artists that you respect for critique is a good way to get feedback.  Speaking of which, if you have the time, I'm curious to know if you have any suggestions on how I can improve my own work! :happybounce:
