Dude, you're nowhere near that bad! Being part if a group is an important step to getting better, too. It allows you to expose yourself to more techniques, and often gives you the motivation to draw new things, which is essential to learning.
Everyone seems to say that but I really don't believe it.. Self-esteem and confidence levels are at their lowest.. I know that, because I would get to see other people and how they draw, as well as continue to push myself to try and get better, and I DEFINITELY need more motivation, that's for sure..
Well, I've already joined the group, but I'm still extremely confused about filling out the application.. I'm by no means a digital artist, and I'm not tech savvy so I can't copy and paste pictures into the template and make it look good.. Idkk, I just don't see myself cut out for it
You know, whenever you see someone whose really good at something, it's almost certain they were once really bad at it. Every skill, drawing -especially-, is a learned trait, and I can tell from your work you've already undergone some growing pains. It'd be a real shame to just give up and let it go.
Oh, the apps are cake once you get the hang of it. I use Sai when doing mine, for the layering, but you can use paint to just as good effect. Toy around with paint, you'll be surprised what you can come up with.
Either way, you may not see yourself cut out for PMDE, but I do.
I know.. I guess it's frustrating because it's like the feeling you had when you were a kid and you wanted something that second and you didn't want to have to wait.. It's the same childish wish that I have, because I've been so focused on other things that I just don't know when I could find time to practice, much less HOW to practice to find my true drawing style.. What do you mean by growing pains? 'Cause I've ALWAYS had trouble drawing unless I was copying a picture off the internet.. I can do that nearly perfectly~
Well, I can always screw around with it and get the feel for it. I really want to purchase Paint Tool Sai, but I haven't gotten around to it yet because I'm just not good enough to try my hand out at digital art.. I'll mess around in paint, but I'm still more of a traditional artist as well as a writer.. I'm much better at those two things
Well, thank you so much for the encouragement It means a lot.. I plan on filling out the writing application sometime soon, once I can come up with a creative team.. I want to be original with names and everything, but so many people have used all of the Pokemon in their teams that I want to stay creative somehow..
