While I'm on a late night insomnia fueled posting spree... What is it about people in general that they see in someones art work that the artist *can't* see? I can probably count on one hand the number of times that I finished a piece of artwork and said "wow, that's neat!" On the other side, I have probably 5 or 6 pieces of art that I created between my childhood and around 2000. The rest I have thrown away out of sheer disgust (much to the dismay of anyone that had seen it). If I create something, all I see is ..well.. crap. Yet the people who come across it (average people, not other artists necessarily) have nothing but praise for what I do. Are they lying just to be nice? Are they just going on first impression, and later in life will come to see the mess of errors that something is? I've been watching airbrush tutorial videos. The whole "quick ways you can make money with your airbrush" type of stuff on youtube. Honestly, I'm not sure what these guys have in mind when they say "beginner airbrush artist", unless they mean "beginner who has spent 20 years practicing dagger strokes". Anyway. Does anyone have experience with this sort of enigmatic issue of people saying your art is "amazing", even though you think it's complete garbage?
