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'll stay a baby and be proud of it. No matter how much I practice I'll always be a horrid artist. I've drawn a lot over the years and my stuff still looks like it did in freakin' 2010.

Try to draw something different then what you are already doing, try different poses, features etc
RainbwBloom657 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
kinda rude stamp dont u think ._.
GarbageHuman Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not exactly. It's just that people complain about how they're horrible artists and that they'll stop drawing. But how are they going to get better if they stop drawing (Or/and practicing)? That's just what the stamp is saying. You don't have to take it as offensive.
neko-systeme Featured By Owner Edited Sep 6, 2015
Yeah I've got a friend like this. She's always saying « I wish I could draw my characters but I suck at drawing », she should try to and practice to be able to draw them :stare: !!
But, eh, there's people who no matters how hard they try their work will never satisfy them. But that's more of a self-confidence problem than a real drawing problem. I've got that problem ^^' You cannot tell these people « Practice more ! Draw more » 'cause well, they already do ...
GarbageHuman Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True true, I have a lot of friends who do that. I personally don't have the highest confidence in my art as well. Btw, your art is actually very beautiful, the colors are like porn for the eyes.
neko-systeme Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015
Most people aren't too confident about themselves ..
Oh, uuh ;__; Thank you so, so much. Your art style's very cute too.

People who tell you "PLEASE TEACH ME TO DRAWWW" are also a bit.. uhmmm.....

I have a life. :stare:
Essansee Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Its near impossible to 'teach someone to draw'.
You can teach them technical stuff like shading, anatomy, ect,
but that's about it.
They need to apply it and in doing that, they'd really be training themselves.
I can't stand that request.
Lycanamu Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2015  Student General Artist
I definitely agree! Like yeah, giving tips about materials and techniques is possible, I actually do that, but the only one to "teach" someone to draw is themselves.

Luckily I rarely have to deal with this. All my close friends are artists and they all have dA accounts. xD

I saw a girl on deviantart that stole a drawing of someone else and edit it. I told her that she should not do this, but she started doing the crybaby saying "But, I'm not good to draw!" so what? That permit you to stole someone else drawing?
Darkharp182 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Yup. I thought I couldn't draw and I picked up a pencil, a piece of paper, and some markers and I did amazing.
NotTadds Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Hobbyist

Tablets suck.

The reason why I say that I can't draw to people is that everytime I try to draw, after a few minutes of holding the pencil/pen, my hand will start to get painful. This is because from when I was a child, I hold my pen differently. And now that it's in my muscle memory, I can't draw or write properly anymore
Darkharp182 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Same :/

I have friends that will come up to me at school while I'm drawing and be like "I wish I could draw that good!" Then in my mind I'm like "Then fucking pick up your fancy little $5 lead pencil and practice."
Shardmetalsonic Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015  Student Artist
I completely agree with this stamp.

I got two people saying "I can't draw this or that"
TheDazzlingHipster Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2015
People who use bases and post art made from games.

I'm sorry, my english is crappy, so... I cound't understand it quite well... May I use this stamp? :3
Toxic-Talon Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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:
HoneyCravingSquid Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2014  Student General Artist
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!
Ruriko-Tanaki Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yep, you have my complete support 
noellep98 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014
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.
SnowCharms Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2015
Same with me
awensu Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
pick up a pencil. and practice.
AsahiGirl Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So you think you can't draw? So did these students. *shows amazing artwork*

I Cannot draw, but i can play really good  FPS

I hope the people who draw pictures with a tablet can draw good in real life with a pencil
Royal-Enchantress Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

ImmortalMeganekko Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2014
Crappy artists do NOT get better by going on to draw. They must have the proper lessons before they can start drawing.
lVixl Featured By Owner Edited Aug 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
not true, you can get better at drawing by practicing by yourself, with the help of some tutorials... ^-^

you have me as an example :'D <- almost a year ago <- now
ImmortalMeganekko Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014
Seriously? I still have to learn the basics!
lVixl Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, seriously.

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.
