OMG!!! ;____; thank you everyone who has reblogged this/helped it reach 200k notes!! THAT’S TOTALLY CRAZY!!!!!!! It means SO much to me that people like the girls and their story and that so many people have read it!! also insanely grateful to that one person who added a link to the comic itself, people who source are ANGELS!!!
If you haven’t read Vattu, I highly recommend you do! It’s beautifully written, takes place in an amazing world and has one hella adorable protagonist.
I guess I’ll post this over here also! Adiane from TTGL! which I’m watching for the first time with Toril! I love it!!!!!
I haven’t actually been in that exact situation before, but I’ve definitely had low periods with my art, and on occasion, felt like I’ve failed somehow. Of course, everyone knows the advice that you should just get back up again and keep trying, and it’s completely true, but I think what’s forgotten is that it’s also okay to stay down for a while. Like you don’t have to jump back up immediately into making comics/drawing. You could stay down for a few months, a year - even more. It’s a time to breathe, and think about things, and maybe look at how you feel like you “failed” and your definition of “failure”. You can spend the time studying things you want to learn to draw, or reading and collating ideas - or neither of those things! You can just take a break.
Failure is in no way a bad thing, because it means you were giving your all to drawing in the first place! Which is absolutely what you need to do in order to succeed. You do need to keep trying, but it can be good to sort of pull back and think about why you’re drawing at all. I guess this is easy for me to say because I don’t rely on my art to live, and depending on how you mean by “failure” this may not be the case for you. But I’m all about taking as much pressure off yourself as possible, and creating a more positive mental space to draw in! Maybe spend some time on studies or drawings for fun where you can’t fail, you can only grow!
I hope that helps at all, and I hope you feel better soon anon!
