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 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.
The one and only thing that stresses me out is having my parents and sister around because I draw........romantic art...and that's out of character for the person everyone knows me as, but on the inside, it's very in character for me.
I know exactly what you mean. Although in my case I'm usually drawing dark or gorey things. My parents will look at me weird and worry about me. I just enjoy drawing those things and it doesn't bother me at all. But others just don't get it.
Well, art doesn't stress me out....it relieves stress. When I'm stressed it's not because of the art, it's because I'm doing it to procrastinate on other things I'm supposed to be getting done, and I feel like I'm wasting time.
It has to do with a lack of inspiration most of the time, but also I have those really bad days where I think no one's going to like this or their going to tell me that I suck and should quit doing it all together.But I really try to show people that being an artist, in all forms-drawing, photography,writing-is a way too get to know me because I'm not a very open person when it comes to my feelings and its just who I am and nothing will change that even if I do suck I will always do it and so should you.
It would probably be a mix of artist's block, procrastination, lack of inspiration and self doubt. I try to be perfect, since I am a pessimistic perfectionist, and I never can complete something. I think, it looks awful, redo it. People will get upset, don't post it. Right out everything you need to know about that character/story then post it. So, it's really hard for me. Haha, not to mention my depression/bipolar depression. Those things don't help.

Everything on that list is EXACTLY what all Artists must fight against really. But, the largest problem I have conflict with is when I'm not able to convert an idea for my next drawing at all. The only way to fix it really is to look through art, real life objects, and more to find inspiration, but it is certainly the biggest problem! (Well, for me....)
The things that stand in my way is lack of time and no inspiration. Once I finished, I don't post it to devianart because it's sometimes I don't feel like putting my work there due to annoying hater comments and other reasons maybe people would know.
ALL OF THE FREAKIN' ABOVE! My tools are good, but not good enough, I have little to none inspiration, not very much time, I can't focus on one thing for three hours, and all this work and time, and I don't know if anyone's going to even take a GLANCE at it!
I'm not sure if I should answer "lack of time" or "concern it won't come out right". The later is pretty stupid, but I don't think there's much I can do about time... spend it better^^
Augh, my art never comes out worse than I expect, but that still tries to prevent me from starting. I never realized I was afraid of failure, but maybe that's because I never have failed. Thus, I should try more without worrying about how it should come out, maybe it'll come out horrible and I can say "welp. That wasn't so bad. Im still alive. There's no death penalty for this."
I have plenty of time, I can work around Procrastination, my imagination is boundless, I can work with a dirty crayola crayon if I have to, I FORCE my work to look better than I had envisioned it, I can care less about the parasitic critic otherwise I wouldn't even bother drawing, self doubt? Are YOU kidding I do this for fun! What I can't stand are the stupid smudge marks left by pencil, I'd kill for a real life undo button. Though really, some times I just lose intrest. I don't distract myself, I just sit there, the unfinished work MOCKING me, but why can I just life the pencil and finish?
