Hey /i/, I heard you guys are a lot more nice than the people on /ic/ so I guess I'll throw this bread to you instead of them. I've been attempting to break the ice with drawing for about a year now, but I've never been able to just sit down and draw something. I constantly critique myself and I'm almost always disappointed with what I draw. It creates a mental block that goes like this:
>My art is bad - more practice - my practice drawings are bad - self loathing - no improvement - repeat.
I desperately want to get better, but every time I draw I'm flooded with frustration, then self loathing, then eventually apathy. I know that if I don't draw I'll never get better, but if I do draw I'll just get frustrated and give up. Is this something that happens to you? And if so then how did you get over it ( plz tell me I'm dying here).
>Tl;DR: I'm bad and that makes me frustrated, grr...
