What stresses me out the most is making shoes, feet, and hands, and hands im working on but the other i say eff it.  I got no problem with the other elements of creating art since i do not mind it but as for the art block which is third stress in my book that only happens when a maddening symphony is playing in my head and that i can't focus on drawing stuff on a piece of paper.

Mine is that I physically lack any talent in creating physical artistic media. Music I'm great at.

Mine is more like I know I can do it but I'm afraid I will not be able to finish it, like a lot of projects I will start then get to a busy period of life (work) and it has to go on hold then I cat n't back into it or I can't get back into it... >_<""

A mix of the ones you mentioned, but I always find that most stressful to me is people's reactions when I make something good or that is better than theirs. They always give these backhanded "compliments" that make me feel like a horrible person for being good at art or proud of what I have done. Saying "oh wow yours is so much better than mine." is not a compliment. It just makes the person feel bad for you and not know how to help sometimes.
