Just a reminder of where I stand, ;)
really its very simple. I don't know why people have such a hard time with this concept.

I want this to be a message to any artist that feels put down for what they do, it dosnt matter your skill level, or your fandom, there is no such thing as perfection. this keeps many good artist hands tied...they feel afraid of being bashed and so their creativity dies.

Just draw, have fun!
Please print this it...whatever to encourage yourself and others!

I started at an arts school this year and it has been extremely difficult for me to be told what to draw and when to draw it XD

I just wanted to say I saw this and felt really happy, yesterday I was hating myself for not being good enough and it just sucks to think that no matter what I did no one would care about my art and being ignored is not easy, but this message really cheered me up and you are right, it doesnt matter as long as I love what I do and have fun doing it.
Thank you stranger! I really needed this.

On the other hand, there are a lot of us out here who offer honest advice that isn't worded at all to put anyone down or tear them apart.  Is this billboard meant to shield the artist from hearing things that may help them get even better?

The fact that perfection is an unattainable ideal doesn't mean that striving to be closer to it is some kind of drudgery that sucks the life and enjoyment out of drawing.  Far from it, my experience since I have taken up the mantle of self-improvement is that I enjoy drawing more now than ever.  

Contrary to the sentiment in the billboard, creativity dies when artists naval-gaze and stop exploring.  Curiosity as to what else is possible and the desire to achieve it is the lifeblood of creativity.

 I love drawing just for the fun of it.  I actually get more out of it if I just do it and not worry what it will look like and it usually turns out better in the long run.

Russia is not evil, Spain is not a pedo and France is not a rapist. Some people you are making a disasterous fanart.…
