I use amazing art to see what works well and what I can apply to my own; like shading techniques and different style things :>

awesome artists such as yourself have been the biggest influence on my improvement :heart:

I don't feel envious, I just feel like... All inspired you know? I think to myself "Wow, one day I'm gonna be able to draw like that" and until then I know that I just have to keep practicing and eventually I WILL surpass that person. All you need is a little faith in yourself! Because I know that even if it takes me a million years, I will do everything in my power to draw that well. <3 So I feel inspired.

i was on a high and kinda full of myself cuz it was one of those rare moments where i knew i did something i considered awesome
then i see some AMAZING graphite drawing from somewhere else...
and i feel like shit

*sigh, i had to come off my high eventually, even if it was in a brutal way lol

Both. It starts out as awe, then (shamefully) envy, then competitiveness. I get really competitive when it comes to this stuff lol

I used to feel envy about amazing artwork because I considered myself a poor artist everytime I looked at it... but I've realized everyone has their own style, their own way of learning and their own moment of success. So I don't think I feel it anymore... altough... sometimes I feel a little depressed :XD:

I'll get all inspired until I try to draw something like it, then get all angry with myself when it isn't as good. Then I'll stop drawing for several days because I'll be in a mini-block.

It depends. Sometimmes I feel jealous and others I feel awed and inspired to
do my own stuff. Sometimes I just appreciate good art and really the effort someone
did to put it out there.

Definitely both, though I guess I wouldn't really describe it as "envious" so much as sadness and discouragement. When I see amazing works of art, I'm awestruck by the amount of talent, practice, and patience it must have taken to get that far and create that. It truly deserves praise, and I'll give it to the artist no matter what. I'm not going to be upset at them for being amazing and I won't criticize them when I know there's nothing wrong with the work.

But it also makes me feel very bad about my own work, and it makes me wonder what am I doing wrong in my work that it is not that great. There was a time that I would feel so discouraged that I stopped looking at other people's art. I turned my frontpage from "Popular" to "Newest" so that all I saw was artwork that was worst than mine, lol. Now, however, I'm trying to work past those feelings and actually STUDY pictures that are amazing so that I can get a better understanding of the techniques used, so I could maybe use it too.

:) I'm growing up as a person and an artist, so I don't feel as sad anymore.

It depends, but I usually feel at once a strong sense of respect for their determination to get that good, and a renewed determination to get that good and maybe even better. Yeah, I even feel a twinge of jealousy...
