Thanks !!!!!!!!The thing is that you are ultimately competing against yourself, nobody else. Your ego can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. There are times where you are going to have to force yourself though a bunch of shitty drawings, just to get to your next level-up. You should be able to see improvement in your art, if not, you need to flank the enemy (again, your ego). Focus on improvement, not your ratings or whatever. It can turn into a prison, and its hard to get out once you are trapped. Do your craft for you foremost, seek to improve over what you accomplished previously. Seek feedback to help yourself improve, not for more stars or whatnot.
You'll be fine.
