It can’t be helped that you expect some sort of huge technical achievement per artwork you create. It’s not a bad thing at all. It’s great to aspire for greater things each time you create an expression of yourself.
But there will always be great times that you would produce something that really, really doesn’t meet your standards. It can be disappointing. So what do you do?
It Will Suck
When I create art, I often think that “this one will really suck.”
Accepting this fact, I definitely understand that everything I do from the first stroke of pencil or brush would not be to my liking.
It is here that I release myself of my inhibitions to create art. Now, I lay the ground for more potential.
Bad Art Always Happens
It’s a hit-or-miss thing with artists.
You can’t expect everything you produce to turn out as you planned it.
The one thing I do is imagine it as a journey; I’m someone travelling on a mountain without a plan. I have a goal to reach the top.
But my methods may have me reach the other top of the mountain, or something even more special, like a waterfall.
It sounds great, right?
Like any artist, it helps to express yourself. By expressing yourself, you help your mental state.
You can express your disappointment, your tired soul and everything that you think of your reality and cope with it.
Art is more affordable than therapy. In fact, it can gain you some money, too!
