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....)

Procrastination, artist's block/no inspiration, lack of feed back, and self doubt. Some feed back on my drawing would be nice.

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.
