For some unknown reason I'm the type of artist who HATES to look at his own art. I usually toss most of my artwork in the shredder, not initially but usually after the "Wow I made this!" has turned into "This is the worst thing I've ever seen." I aplaude everyone who posts something here on deviantArt, you are my heroes for putting yourselves out there. I've been a lurker for so many YEARS.  I've decided to start putting myself out there for criticism and growth. I've been afraid of success and failure long enough!  This quote by the radio journalist Ira Glass has really helped me;

"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it's just not that good. It's trying to be good, it has potential, but it's not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn't have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I've ever met. It's gonna take awhile. It's normal to take awhile. You've just gotta fight your way through."
― Ira Glass

So here's to fighting our way through it. I hope to post a lot of beginner work and with the help of this community of like minded people, get a whole lot better.
