Seanshter Monster; I have exactly the same problem but I devised a solution, If you want to draw to make stories, just write them, you’d be amazed at how detailed you can make your brain imagine stuff that’s written. I also struggled with hating myself, but after starting to write I got better, don’t know if it’ll help you, but writing is easier.

I'm 29 years old, delivering pizzas, re-attending college (studying French and Spanish), recovering and building my self back up from a failed 5 year relationship with a guy who was an accomplished painter. I always wanted to make visual art, but my ex would always bring me down telling me how crappy my stuff was. Till this day I am still trying to push away those unconstructive critiques in my head. Some days while delivering pizzas, I'll sit in my car, take out a lead pencil and a notebook, and try and come up with a quick reference -based sketch in between deliveries. 85% of my attempts end up in failure. It is hard. I'm still apparently going throw the million crappy drawings phase. Hopefully one day I will create something that I'm proud of. Thanks for your advice. Videos like these help people like me, and for some, touch us on a deeper level than you may know.

I think number 5 is really important. If drawing is your escapism you will spend all your time on it. If drawing is your video games or your social media, your Youtube! There's nothing stopping you, you will descend into drawing and become so much better. These endless consumption platforms are really wasting our time, wasting our potential. Escape.

Well im not all about “omg my art suck, I’ll never succeed in art” anymore. Now it’s kinda like “ ok, this look bad, but just practice and learn more, im gonna get there one day”. But im still wonder if its my PRIDE is to high and need something to put me back in my place or im being positive, can everything work out this way? It will be nice if you can comment something about this, or at least understand what Im sayin.

One thing this video taught me... Is I’m not ready to become an artist. And I don’t mean that I don’t have what it takes, I mean that what it takes is being taken already. I am a 17 y/o music composer, and I am still finding my limits. I am constantly either in a composing high or a burnout rut, and I try to squeeze in art when I can... but when I see the word ‘reference’ or ‘realism’ I think “my time would be better spent on music,” then I burn myself out again. I am far from a perfect composer, and this video, without even watching the whole thing, taught me to just focus on music and come back later. I’ll never give up on art, but I should maybe focus on my passion rather than inventing a new passion for myself... Of course I’m still learn how to be an artist, visual or musical, so burnout is a somewhat regular occurrence, but I know music is what I want to do, I’ve had the artists’ “talk” with myself, but my brain just can’t. Thank you istebrak for helping me w/ my own revelation

Im only at 7:35 but this is kind of helping me realize some things. I did end up getting slightly better when I looked at some references and I stopped because I was thinking of references in my brain which ended up making my art a bit worse, I actually realized some things I was doing wrong while playing a game and noticing every body details I missed out on while drawing outside of my 'lazy' style I made for comics because I didn't develop any other style yet and kept avoiding it after starting because I thought it just *sucked.* This is helping already, I've seen so many other videos that didn't help me and some saying 'for beginners' but really just showed simple things and already took what you're explaining here that I didn't realize yet. I counted myself as a beginner even though I've been drawing for a very long time, I just didn't focus on the importance of most things. i just went in instantly trying to draw serving and when I did use sketches I didn't even really use a reference or anything. After I used a few references I noticed things I had completely off and now I've stopped using as many references and have gotten a bit worse. I really should use some references again.

I genuinely cried during this video. I never heard more truthful words. Your honesty saying this things really touched me. Not because I got sad about thinking my art sucked. It, sucks, really does. I cried because of the relief of seeing that there was still hope for me. Art is really not my main passion, that is acting, but it was one of biggest dreams to look at drawing made by me and say “Holy crap, this is astounding!”, and I now actually think that this might happen someday. Thank you for taking me out of that terrible hole of anxiety and sadness...

The last point was really true. Basically all of the point hits me hard. I had a long artblock period, like really really long. I, an art major student, didn’t draw for about 6 months. A single thing. Because I thought my drawing sucked so much, that I had no hope in improving or whatsoever. So I started getting into another fun things that aren’t drawing and kind of ditched the drawing life, because I felt insecure that I wasn’t not good enough. But one day, I saw my close friend’s artworks and I was so amazed and my friend introduced me to a good digital drawing software, so I tried the 30 days trial and it was really hard, just like any other software you have to discover and learn tools, but I became productive because of the 30 days trial. ‘Oh I have to draw or I’m wasting the trial time!’ so I drew 30 days... and skipped some because of the pile of assignments I had to do, but within the 30 days, I discovered and learned so many things, and gained so many motivations and just like you said - result. I gained lots of results that motivated me so everytime I’m lazy I look back to the drawing, reminding me of my one goal. ‘What does art mean to you?’ Everything. The only reason why I keep going. I’m grateful that I’m surrounded by good friends that has the same interest with me, and I’m looking back, thinking, I had a whole 6 months. 3 months of HOLIDAY. But you didn’t draw anything??? At first I thought it was because the lack of time but you were right, deep in my heart, it’s not that I DIDN’T have time, but I just DIDN’T want to draw which really upsets me. Why are you wasting so much time? In 6 months I could improve and learn so many things. I regretted that so much since. So I always thankful I’m surrounded by friends who always motivate me through their works. But instead of regretting, I say to myself that it’s okay I’m still young (like 19 haha) so I’m grateful I got out of this early, and I will continue to learn endless things from now on. Thank you for this video. You’re a great teacher, I’m grateful to have found you. I enjoyed all of your videos and learned a lot through them!!!! :D (Hopefully 5 years later when I see this comment I’ve became a decent artist (?)) xD (((wow sorry for the long rants haha)
