This kills me.
This is the quality of art I can't produce. Either I need classes, or I just do not have the talent. I've been drawing more than 10 years longer than this guy, but I can't do this stuff. I'm quite proud of the ability I do have, but when people tell me "you could make a living off that" it's like eating sour grapes. I think of this kind of stuff, and all the great work on deviantart, and I know that I can't compete. Sometimes I regret showing off my art when someone says something like that because I know they're blowing smoke up my ***.
