vent art.

Not feeling very confident in myself atm. Especially about my art. Kind of like Buzz. Feels like I'm just drawing OCs... not giving anything to them. Feels... empty. I don't share OC stories because I'm scared to. Even with friends.

It's funny how someone can say something in good intentions... but it ends up backfiring. And they don't notice.

I feel useless.




Oh well, I guess. that's life, served on a damn silver platter for you.

Ash, never be afraid to show your own OCs. You draw art not necessarily to please us, but because YOU want to draw, you want to do it. Its your characters, if people dont like your original work or want to dewatch you, let them. Its better to watch a person for their personality, their art, and who they are, not just the fanart :D

You're more than just the PnF art you do, you're also about other fandoms. You've got great and original ideas, such as Imagination Jumpstart, which I would SO watch if it were a real show :iconiloveitmoreplz:

I think you should take a little break from the fanart and focus more on your own characters. It might be a nice reprieve for you :D :heart: :hug:

Good luck, and God bless :D

:/ quite honestly your art is adorable and I subscribed to you a month or two ago because of it. It's okay that you don't inform your audience or friends about your OC's, because they are original characters, its up to you what you want others to know. Please don't feel useless, your art is amazing :3 <3 feel better

I hope you're feeling better. I don't know about your more personal work, but I see 100% effort and talent in everything you do. Empty is last word I'd use to describe anything you do... actually I wouldn't use that word at all. 8T *hugs*

Aww I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling a bit down and not very confident at the moment... :hug: :huggle: I know the feeling, and actually it's not a bad thing that you're being self-critical - it's one of the things that helps us improve; however, I don't want you to feel like you're not doing enough, your art is absolutely amazing, and, as an independent and objective observer, I can say that it always feels to me that your pictures are full of emotion, feeling, and love for your characters - so please don't let the feeling that you don't do enough deceive you :hug: You do a whole lot, you feel your characters and they are indeed dear to you (and not only OCs but also the official characters from cartoons - your P&F fan fiction was the awesomest I've ever read!) - no one is perfect, and it's always possible to do more than you do now, but hey, that's the reality of life and that's, after all, what lets us improve forever, for all our life, and what makes it fun and interesting to keep going :hug: So, keep going, my dear friend, and please cheer up and don't feel bad - I hope you feel better soon! :huggle: :aww:

Don't feel that way Ash, remember what I told you in one of the comments I left you having to do with your OCs. I still keep my word. Your OCs are truly wonderful and creative. :heart:

I shall pray for you before I go to bed, and hope that you will gain a bunch of confidence that you will have! Even Buzz will gain the optimism that he will need too~ :aww:

What? Dude, no! Creativity is amazing and it should always be shared with SOMEONE! You got the means to show it with your art (which is freaking fantastic, might I add) and you should do so.
'The people who matter won't hate that you're making OCs, and the people who hate don't matter.'
You know how many people are jealous of you right now? If you've got enough originality and talent to make an original character and then introduce him/her to the world...I say go for it. :cuddle:
Besides, you can always add to the character later/as you go, say if you're struck by inspiration in ten years, and then maybe you can incorporate them into a story or something...:hug:

I'm sorry if I said anything before. I know this isn't about me, but I feel the need to apoligize here. I have said some...strange things that I shouldn't have said, but I'm sorry. Now on to other stuff:

If you think your art is empty, then, you need to share something about it. Sharing anything is helpful. When someone tells you something good about your art, do you still feel empty about it? THe best thing you can do is ask for help, or tell someone.

I'm sorry if this wasted your time.

Oh Ash, I actually wish you could draw only OCs xDD nah jk, but I really prefer to see something that comes only from you than something inspired by the ideas of somebody else :aww: you are talented both in drawing and writing, so why using these abilities only for things that already exists? You have the right to create your own stories, 'cause one day you're going to be famous thanks to them. And honestly, if someone watches you only for fanart, he doesn't fully appreciate you as an artist xD just keep doing what you think it's right, and don't care about what other people think, they are not you, so they can't understand what those characters mean for you. I can't neither, I only know that I love them xD

fff why do I always write poems to your pics? D: I'm sorry..

oh and Buzz is adorable.. thos biiig sad eyes... *cuddles*

Everyone has down moments every once in a while, they come and go. Your art is AMAZING! You should do what you feel is right, if someone has a problem well then it's their problem. Art is meant to be shared, not everyone will like it but I can guarantee that A LOT OF PEOPLE will LOVE whatever you post in the future.

First off, I'd like to say that this little peice is really nice with that texture, and you can really see the lonesome sadness in Buzz's expression. He's one of my favorite original characters from you, next to Coco and Sunny.
Alot of people have the same feeling about their own characters, but you don't have to be nervous with anyone, and if anyone bothers to disagree or object, then they can be ignored. Ash, your characters are truly amazing, you give them life with your stories and complex ideas of creativity, and always leave us in suspence, which everyone loves~ Don't feel so down, I'm sure you can get better with everyone else's kind support. <3

It just might take a little bit more getting used to drawing your OCs. Like with your fanart, they got progressively better with each drawing and the character seemed to take on more life as you continued to draw them. Why do you think it takes so long to make a character for a movie? It's not like they get it right in the first sketch XD lol

Anywho... maybe it'll just have to take a few more sketches and practice before they appear to have more life in them :aww: We'll support you, Ash. All the way :heart:

Why're you afraid of posting about your OC's? I love all of them, especially the animals (ESPECIALLY, ESPECIALLY BUZZ :heart:, seriously, gosshhhhh he's adorable :love:) I love fanart and original art the same amount, but then again orignal art has a broader range. If you're worried that no one will like your characters, then that's far from being true. From what I've seen everyone loves them. Well, whatever it is, I hope that you'll feel better soon. :)

I know how you feel though... sometimes people don't really say stuff right, and it can totally mess up your day... and sometimes they just totally crush you... I stayed down for like a week...

But don't let them get you down! You're an amazing writer and drawer!!! I hope you feel better... and if you do need to just feel like this for a while, then do, because it's better than bottling up. But remind yourself of everything you're awesome at, because you're an amazing person :0)

Feel better!!! And this is beautiful, by the way!!!
