Thanks a lot! This particular piece means a lot to me because I see so many kids through teaching that have no self confidence left regarding there art, simply because they have been subjected to unnecessary criticism over the years,often from family and friends. I've noticed children at 10 or 11 often give up trying to create completely because they've become so accustomed to being told they cant draw...it's quite sad!

It is sad. I believe that everyone can draw, and everyone can learn to draw better no matter what level you start at. For years kids in my classes would look at doodles i made or something and say they just couldn't draw and I'd always try to convince them they could...I don't know if it ever really worked though;;. I was lucky, my parents and teachers were always very encouraging with art. Its me thats the problem....criticize everything until my confidence is so shot I can barely pick up a pencil.sometimes the online community can be critical and my sister and sometimes its just the fact that I look at awesome art for inspiration but get discouraged by it because i feel my stuff is not so awesome. I almost gave up completely but I decided to study and not listen to what people say too much or worry how good everything i made was. It shouldn't be about any of that. Art is self expression, and if I can portray a feeling straight from my heart...who's to criticize it and say I did it wrong? So I'm getting better :D haha
