You know how some pro artists post ‘sketches’ that look like finished work and then you hate them but then they like your dolphin sketches and so you love them? Yeah.
Do you know why?
Many ‘professional’ artists carry a big bag filled to the rim with experience, techniques, critique, etc.
So over time they will lose that inner child full off naïveté and love for the subject. They draw from the heart, the drawing breathes life.
Don’t get discouraged by art that surpasses in technique and experience, in good time and with hard work you will end up there as well. Looking back gloomy to a time where you just drew for the fun of it :)
