"The reason that we made "Howl’s Moving Castle" is that there are too many unhappy matters in the world, such as wars and economic crises. We hope that, through the movie, people can keep up their courage and see the hope. The future world is still nice and beautiful. It is worthy for us to survive and explore it." − Hayao Miyazaki

Some harsh but very very true words

When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble."this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…""this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…""there is better stuff on later pages…"It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time. Be proud.

This is really important.  Eliminate this urge.  Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work.  Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun.  Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work.  You lose the urge to do it.  You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat.  They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself.  Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work.  Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure.  If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work.  When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.

in all honesty though don’t pretend you were never 14, don’t be that pretentious arse

don’t sit there acting like you never drew terrible manga fanart with disorted eyes the size of misshapen basketballs whilst one-handed typing “xD” over and over again into a chatbox

look me in the eye and tell me you never had an invader zim phase

I never had an invader zim phase.

(I honestly tried, because so many of my friends liked it, but it just made me too uncomfortable)

and I never started with “the animes” until now, 10 years after 14. but my eyes were misshapen anyway…

…but more than misshapen eyes, I had a misshapen boob phase… I should find some of that stuff… It’s golden.

and I still use “xD”

…but more than any of that, I think everyone needs to realize that being 13 and 14 is not a terrible thing, and we need to stop treating it like it is.

Even in people’s dreams my cats are more interesting than I am!
Actually, I was playing with your Bunny!! And I think you were mad at me because I came to your house with a bus full of people… A sport’s team?? I don’t remember. But we swung on your hammock!
I’ll be weirded out a little if you actually have a hammock. 
(There was another dream where some punks were being really mean to you and they made you cry and I hugged you, okay. We were in a house like a maze with a million doors, and a couple other tumblr people were there.)

I’m surprised at how GOOD your art was in 2008! Were you always super talented?? I am so upset.
Are you kidding me, that looks nothing LIKE David Bowie!! You’re just bein’ a sweetheart :p

I’ve had at least two dreams where I went to Sweden to hang out with Hellman, but I mostly hung out with his pets

PS: before I go off into the void again,

A family friend just left for Sweden to go to a University there, and this is me. (Replace “Brighton” with “Sweden” and there you go: actual picture of the blogger)
