Gary Reef On Expectations

I’ve been watching Gary Reef‘s videos for days now. He posts on YouTube as CapricornArtist73. He does some extraordinary work.

This advice seems like a double edged sword – on one hand it seems quite encouraging to know you’ll improve over time, on the other hand it seems depressing that it will take such a long time. But it is true, I’m sure.

It’s the mark of a seasoned artist actually, at least as far as I can ascertain, to not be so hung up on judging their own output. In my experience I am always wary of being judged, I invariably preface posts with my artwork with words like ‘beginner’ or ‘amateur’ in part because I want to give context but also because I’m hoping random passers by will be gentle.
