I just want to say "Thank you."

Like, really. I love art. As a kid, I'd always look at my dad's drawings or the drawings and sketches of those guys older than me. I'd always follow how they'd do it, and mimic them, but I never really had the courage to make my own stuff. Eventually, as I got older, I tried to make my own things with my own style. I thought I was on the way to becoming a really good artist like the ones I look up to, until I found a kid, a few years younger than I am, making art pieces that make mine bite the dust. I honestly lost all my motivation to draw that day. Even my friends wondered why I suddenly stopped drawing. I'd always give them short answers like "Just because..." or "Maybe later..." but I never got to it. To this day, I feel intimidated by the artists I see and look up to, because I feel I will never reach their level, but I still try. I know it's not as good as I want it, but I still try.

I try in hopes of achieving my dreams of becoming an artist.

Thanks for giving this guy, a guy who's been drawing all his life, hope that he can one day become an artist like he's always dreamed of.

This made me think back to my middle school and freshman years. I loved drawing and really looked up to my grandma who, in my eyes, was and still is the most amazing artist. I knew from a young age that I wasn't going to reach her level right away, but I practiced. During my middle school years, I had grown quite the collection of drawings. The ones I was most proud of, I hung on my wall so my family started calling it the "wall of fame". During my freshman year, I made two friends who also enjoyed art. We drew together and that's when I saw that my art skills weren't as amazing as I thought. One of my friends was on my level of skill, but the other, her art was beautiful. Compared to her's, mine looked messy and ugly and, despite her saying it was good, I hated my art. I tried pushing to get to her level of skill but I couldn't get there. I looked at my art and thought that it was no longer something special. I began taking down pieces from the "wall of fame" that I had once been so proud of. I only had a few up when my little sister came into my room to proudly show off a picture she'd drawn for me. She had said that she knew it wasn't good, but she hoped it was good enough to go on the "wall of fame". Of course, I put it up for her and when she came with a new one I'd add it to the wall. We moved and the wall is no longer a thing I do, but I still have the pictures boxed away somewhere. I still look at my art sometimes and think, "Wow, this is complete crap." but it's nice to know that there is someone who looks up to you. My little sister doesn't even realize how special her admiration of my art makes me feel.

Sorry for the long comment, just wanted to share my feelings. This is a really beautiful story and it made me tear up. I'm sure I speak for everyone who said they relate when I say, thank you for making this. :)

You just draw a smile on my face.

All this time I was only dreaming and you know what, you started to open my eyes. Now I realized that everything started from little things. Even you knew that someone who's younger than me draw better than me! :la: You just put me back into my drawing habit (which includes wasting hundreds of paper). But yeah, you really did an amazing work. You just draw a smile on my face. :)

Thanks for this, its beautiful. The style, the colours, the story...
I've been in a rut for quite a while now, but after seeing this, I got the urge to go back to my sketch book and draw. And enjoy the act drawing without care of how it compares to those of others.

I was like this before I started drawing.
I would always get SUPER upset about how I couldnt draw as well as my friend who actually got me into anime xD
But now, Im a .. descent digital artist.
But, every artist starts out as an amateur. It's just that simple. c:

This is so beautiful and amazing...it really motivated me.
I've been drawing for so long yet I see people on here who are younger than me who haven't even been drawing that long yet their drawings are so much better. I find myself getting quite upset after finishing a drawing and properly looking at it only to find I haven't really improved and my art style is still so simplistic and amateurish. But now I realize that every artist has to start somewhere and this is just the beginning of what I can do ^-^

Thank you for making such an inspiring piece.

Aww! Thanks for this! My friend only started drawing a year ago, and she's a lot better than me, and I've been drawing for about 5 years now. So I started feeling a bit.. well you know. But I found this and it made my day much better! I will work hard! Tiger you are a great artist!
