While we hide ourselves in doubt (and for some, say that they're talentless), others that may not be as talented shine because they took the opportunity to showcase what they have.

My sister gave me the idea for this quick sketch. I for one think she's one of the most talented girls I've ever seen, excelling in singing and sports. She wants to be a pro singer and on the varsity teams for basketball and soccer, but she's always so hard on herself telling herself that she can't do anything and saying every single person she sees is better when I see otherwise.

I need to work on commissions badlyyyy and finals week is coming up in college so I'm going to have to calm down on art.
Good night!

great job!
and hey, if your sister is saying that stuff about herself, tell her that she may think that she can't do anything, but other people really look up to her. from what you described about her, i'm sure that people are idolizing her right now.

Very good idea! I see this all the time the people who are really confident end up looking like they're amazing and talented. When sometimes this is'nt entirely tru! Its often those who have much less self confidence that are in fact very very good at what they do! They just don't give themselve the chance. I really love this, well drawn and a good message too! You are truly skilled. :)

I really like this! The picture really speaks to me, I think we all can relate to that fear of failure...but it definitely pays to just get out there and do it! :)
