I'm not big on drama, most of you probably know this already. But as of late, i've been extremely frustrated with my art. I am rarely satisfied with a picture, and even less often happy about the result. Every single time i finish a pic, i feel like it's worse than how it started. I've been hopping from one style to another for years now trying to find something i'm comfortable with, and though i can clearly see i'm improving when i look at older stuff, i still don't feel like i'm actually getting anywhere. Hell, hardly anyone even bothers to show interest in my art when i offer it for -free-.
What am i doing wrong, where can i improve? Should i focus on learning to shade? Is my coloring what offsets people? Is it the topic, should i draw less pinups and more of the lore behind my characters? Should i try comics? Trades? More free art to get my name around? Do i just need to post more stuff more often?
Help me out, people.
