I have very little confidence in my art skills. I know I'm not a terrible artist but I'm always doubting how good I really am. Every thing I draw, I can only see the mistakes and things I could have done better no matter how hard I try. I have friends, family and random strangers who constantly tell me that my art is amazing and awe inspiring. But I just can't see it. I mean, I frequently upload all my works on about eight different websites yet I only average around a dozen or two views each. It's extremely rare that I get anywhere near 100 views on a single picture. And getting likes, favorites, shares or comments? Consistently in the single digits. (Hell, I expect this picture to get ignored like everything else I put online.) As for commissions? I'm lucky to get one or two a month if I get any. So maybe you can understand why I have so much self doubt despite how often people tell me my art is oh so good. I often feel like everything I do is a waste of time. There are days where I seriously contemplate just deleting all my work. Just throwing away all my notebooks and drawings. Just never drawing again because what's the point? I'm terrible at it! I can't see myself improving! I'll never be as good as all the other artists across the internet! Everything I draw, that I pour hours of work and meticulous detail into, I see hundreds of others who can make an immensely superior picture twice as fast. They're earning a lot of money on Patreon and such. And they deserve it more them me. Only people good at their craft deserve to make a living from it. And yet I still draw. I have to. Because it's the only thing I'm even remotely good at. My only useful skill. Regardless of how terrible an artist I am, art is the only thing I can contribute to society. If I can't make art, the only thing I'm good at, then I am useless to the world and I'd be much better off dead.
Read the fucking description. I have nothing more to say. (Also, the pictures in the pic are all by me and in my galleries. I'm not linking them so find them yourself.)

Well I think your art is awesome!! I tend to fave things I wanna show other people or really like in terms of theme. Overall your skills are awesome and you should never be disheartened by the lack of others activity!

Thanks.  It's just so disheartening going day after day feeling inadequate.  That you took the time to actually comment really helps.
