I usually just wish I were more dedicated and persistent with my artwork. I LOVE a lot of people's work or style and appreciate that they work for it and/or are really talented.

I used to feel that more often, but lately I don't get jealous so much. Now I try to understand how they did what they did so I can do it too.

More talented artist inspires me to work better. Anyway, I want to make my own style, characters. So it's just stupid to envy. And great thing, that many real awesome artists share their knowledge and made tutorials for begginers. The main reason I love dA is inspiration works and friendly atmosphere, it's look like everyone want to help you became better! That's absolutely great!

It more like inspirational Envy then jealously. I'm more like "I wanna try THAT!" or "I have to draw more!" not "I hate you!"

It's funny because I don't get jealous about anything, friends, romance, possessions, luck, skills, etc EXCEPT ARTISTIC ABILITIES. When it comes to that, I just rage in my head and go berserk xD DeviantART makes it all the worse, but I have to remember the fact that everyone I'm jealous of is 20 years and over, while I'm only 15 and still have plenty of time to practice to get to that level of skill around that age xD

I try and not think of other people's art though, because that plus my low confidence in myself doesn't work when I want/need to draw something :/

I think, more talented people are an inspiration for me. It's just like learning from them even when they are not teaching you.

Not online much. But to be honest, I DO get jealous/envious about people who seem better in school... Maybe it's just like an age competitive thing?? I'm not sure, I try not to be if I can help it though ;n;

I think for me it is more of an admiration with a tinge of jealousy I get from time to time, especially when I look at the works of artists I follow. But I usually make it go away by saying well these people put a lot of effort and hours to get where they are today, where I don't.

I used to. Oh, it was bad. I'd get depressed, especially when I saw artists my age or younger whose skills were far beyond mine. But, since coming to an art school, I've learned that everyone's on different levels, and everyone's got room to grow, always. No two people will have the same set of skills, and no one's perfect. So, even though I sometimes get down on myself, I know I'm doing the best I can. C:

Actually I do have a bit of envy how much time you had mad it, but I always remind myself to really be open, artist are struggling themselves, and take things as a grain of salt.

Never felt like that.

In my mind, anything I see other people doing is achievable. Not only for me, but for anyone who truly wants to get to that level. Self belief has a lot to do with where you want to be, the rest is just maintaining your determination to get there.

If the artist is experienced (as in, it took them a long time to get good), then no. But if they're talented (good, but required significantly less effort to get there), then yes.

Yep. I'm straight up jealous of everyone. Including you, Ry. It makes me want to punch your face in. With a heart. <3

For people with either talent or experience, I don't care; I'm completely jealous of them. And it does make me mad. But I'm still mad and happy at the same time.

Psh, feelings. Whatever mate. xD
