Just something that came to mind recently when I saw another furry feeling so shitty about his art that he just wanted to quit. I would like to take a little time to say that I've been there myself many times.
To be entirely truthful I would have quit drawing in 2006 had it not been for this website and the wonderful people to be found on it. Motivation is extremely hard to come by, especially when you are just learning to draw and everything you produce looks like a sack of shit. It's so easy to end up miserable and demotivated about your own work; even now, with 8 years of drawing experience under me, I still have moments where I feel awful and lose my urge to doodle.
So I just want to stress the important point, the essential point really, that the only difference between a good artist and someone who can barely draw is that the artist didn't quit. So don't quit, be yet another addition to the huge and vibrant roster of furry artists in the future. If your lack of success is getting you down, tell others about it and get some support, because I guarantee it happens to everybody XP.
