Practice Stamp by Zombie-Faerie Practice Stamp by Zombie-Faerie
I recently started drawing at school. And I know I'm not that good, but I'm pretty satisfied with where I am artistically. And I'm getting kind of sick of all the people telling me they can't draw.

I couldn't draw either, it took me YEARS to get to the point I am today, and it's not even perfect. There will always be someone better, and if you really want to be good at what you do you need to pick up a goddamn pencil and practice.

</end rant>

Ps. For subscribers only, sorry little ~deviants. You're gonna need to buy the pretty symbol in front of your name before you can use this puppy.

I know the thumb code is somewhere over there--->



pps. This is the first of three stamps I had an idea to make, and will do this morning because I'm not in school.
The next two are seperate ideas, one is harry potter related and one is a gift-stamp.
So yeah, expect some stamps.


ppps. (Last one, I promise)
I did use a stamp template, but damnit I forgot where I got it from. Please, if you know, enlighten me. I need to give proper credit in order to sleep well at night.

I agree with this stamp 100%

I could NOT draw for the life of me when I first started out and to make things worse I had a brain issue that made my hand not move the way I wanted it too... I continued to practice over 4 years until I finally managed to realize I was doing something some people dream to do. Each year I got better until I am to where I am now. :)

So I truly believe anyone can draw if they put they're heart and mind to it.

Thank you for making this stamp! :la:

Agreed! If they say they can't draw, they'll have to prove that by having no hands or anything to draw with to show!

ok well keep this in mind that I really suck at drawing and I am only on this site because I love to look at other peoples drawings. I draw all the time so if someone were to say that I don't practice is lying. no matter how much I have practiced my entire life I can not draw for my life. so not everyone can become a good artist by practice. I'm not trying to me mean if t seems like I am, I am just trying to let everyone know that not everyone is born with the ability to draw well.

Why would it be any different...? It's not like a tablet gives you magical powers to draw better. In fact I would argue it is easier to draw with a pencil and paper rather than with a tablet.

Crappy artists do NOT get better by going on to draw. They must have the proper lessons before they can start drawing.

not true, you can get better at drawing by practicing by yourself, with the help of some tutorials... ^-^

You just need to practice everyday even if it's just a tiny sketch, it helps a lot believe me ^-^

Sometimes I join my idols on join me/livestream so i can learn more techniques from them.

Yes. Music and photography are much more inituitive arts than the others. Writing requires a good, good brain and drawing isn't really that easy for the right-handed.

the worst is when people ask you how you draw so well, and ask you for lessons. There are seriously 5+ people who expect me to tutor them, when I'm still teaching myself.

The worst is when somebody comments on your pictures, saying:
"OMG YOUR ART IS SO GOOD. WHY CAN'T I DO THAT, MY ART LOOKS LIKE SHIT."
Where you know exactly that it's just a very subtle invitation for you to go and look at their stuff u_u
Or general attention-seeking of that particular person.("No, your drawings look good, don't be encouraged, blablabla.")
I fucking hate that.

It isn't that I can't draw, it's just that I'm not that good. And I do practice.
But I guess it's other people's wonderful gift. ;)

No. It tastes dedication to the art world. Drawing everyday. HAving that little boost of "wheres a pencil" moments are the peak of drawing. Spending 5 hours on a drawing when you havent drawn anything in a month isn't hard work and it wont help. Doing quick 5-10 minutes sketches everyday or as much as you can.
Some people do have a natural talent and some others do not. but it's passion that drives people whether you have the boost or not.

I have no talent.
You should still practice, sometime (personal experience) you don't see result for years, then all you've learned comes overnight.
After that, you still have to practice, but from that day you will see improvement, day by day.

I'm nowhere near good, but a least I have improved.
All I need for drawing is a pencil and graphing paper.
No digital art systems required!

Yes, yes thank you for making this. most people don't realize how much hard work it takes to be good. A lot of artists quit because other people are better than them. it's so stupid. To me it doesn't matter if you're good or not, you just have to enjoy it!
