MOVE on Identity: A thing about Art and so called 'talent'

[My Opinion Versus Everyone] Please remember these are simply my opinions and are not meant to imply that you should agree or disagree nor should these prove to be offensive in any way; if I do come across displeasingly then you have my apologies beforehand, thank you.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
EDIT: I added the project MOVE header ^-^ 12/18/12~ This was written a while before that though but it falls under the category :)
___________________________________________________________________

I'm writing this partially because of a situation I'm in right now with an artist who I will keep anonymous... and partially because I've wanted to get this out for months now.. And I assure you I probably will not sound like the same person you've known as 'Capu' for my 10 months here now..


Although I ask that if you do care, you'd read this, all of it.
And can I say that my emotions while writing this are non other than a simple need to have as many people understand what I'm trying to say. That skill isn't achieved through talent, but by work. Just work. 
                                                                                                                                                 

Now where shall I begin? First. I want to start of with my progress in art this past year.

Sky: reference by Capukat This everyone, was my very first deviation on Capukat. 10 months ago.
I don't need to be told to know I was far more 
unoriginal
unskilled
un...artistic? Than every one of you.
And how, you ask? Does this deviation turn into this
Snips of Light by Capukat
which is my latest full art submission...? Well read on, fellow reader, and I shall spill my secrets~
______________
Yes I've had a few accounts before this, of which I've stayed on for about a week each because not in my wildest dreams did I ever feel I'd ever create art that would gain more than 4 views and 0 favorites.

blinkblink2
SereneWinter
Whimsy11 
on Whimsy I stayed a bit longer, for 2 months, this was when I first got more serious and decided digital art, was something I wanted to pursue..

If there is one thing you must know about me, it is that I'm narrowminded, and once I set my mind on one thing, I do whatever it takes to satisfy myself.

And I've found that one thing.
Art.

I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't make friends.
I will admit I know a lot of people just want to be friends with the popularity but I couldn't care less.
My closest friends? Online. How many watchers? About 50. These two people know who they are. And you will see me talk to them on my stream, in comments, on skype. I don't need 50 friends, or 20, or 10. I have two best friends and they are the real people I look to for everything you'd categorize as 'friend'

At school? I've been the loner. The weirdo. The sociopath.
I've been called the Grudge
The Witch
The ~female dog~
Oh the list goes on~

I used to sit by myself, opposite side of the kick ball wall so I would get shade while I wait out recess. 
That was in 2nd grade.

I write this as I'm in 10th grade.
And today I sat for the lunch period against a brick wall outside of my class with my lunch locked in the room, as I study the shadows cast upon the blue lockers and while sitting there, I try to see how I might improve my shading by studying the way the lockers are... 'shaded'

I sit there, head low, rested on my arms, legs crossed, hugging myself tightly as I daydream to pass time.
I'm the new kid. For the 9th time. 

And it's been this way as long as I can remember.
I could go on, venting about my lack of the normal social teen life; how I've never worn makeup or go shopping for clothes once a year if I'm lucky or have my hair cut every six months with no style except for straight. Thin. Or a lot of things I could go on about. But I won't, because I will be honest and say I don't need hollow sympathy or attention. So let's continue~
And where do I look to for salvation? A happier ending? I suppose you could say that’s where my online life fits in~
The only thing I can do is draw. And deviantArt has allowed me to make something of a life out of it and I'm more than grateful.

It's not uncommon for me to spend 2 hours
3 sometimes
possibly 4 just sitting idly doing almost nothing
thinking about new art ideas
new concepts
new designs
New ways to ... improve~
I've deprived myself of sleep
Skipped meals
All without meaning to of course
But meaning to better myself in what I do.
I don't give up once I start. And I never mean to. I may be negative in just about anything else, you can ask my friends! But there is not a single moment where I've compared my work to another artist's without thinking:
One day I'll bring myself up to your level. And that day will come sooner than later. 

Because
I believe 
But
Believing isn't everything. You have to 
Work.

Sound familiar? Maybe a flicker of recognition is sparking somewhere?

Yes. Hard work. Hands on.
I spent a good 10-15 hours. Every. Day. During summer vacation this year. Dedicated that time to art.
You'd think oh! My parents allow me so much freedom. They don't love the fact I'm ruining my back.
Or my eyes.
Or my health.
No, and I get lectured and punished fairly for it. As I should. But this doesn't stop me.
I've been grounded. Yes.
But I want art. I want to get better. And I'm not letting anything get in between me and what I want.

I've spent over 600 hours alone during my summer break. I livestreamed everything. There's proof. You can ask. You can view the videos and check the dates. I assure you they're there.
And now with school? That gets reduced to about 30-40 hours weekly digital art. And add on another 5-10 hours traditional, procrastinate, not-focusing-on-lecture, art. Yes I've risked bad grades, more punishments, everything and anything.

But to me? It's worth it. And even now I'm not satisfied with my art. And they say your harshest critic is yourself and I say that's true. Because so long as there's room for improvement, I will never be truly satisfied. And there's always room for improvement. And it doesn't matter what I'll have to get through to get what I want, because I'll never stop wanting to get better. And that ultimately has brought me here.

I've spent over 1,000 hours this year so far on digital art.
I dare you to tell me you topped that and ask why you didn't improve because if you did, and you tried hard, and you squinted at that screen, tensing your hand, tilted your head, skipped food and water on occasions and even held off bathroom breaks, I dare you to tell me you didn't see improvement.

I dare you to tell me that you sincerely did all that and I dare you to show me your work, past and present, and I dare. you. to tell me to my. face. that you didn't see progress.

If you've read everything up to this point, I'll admit, I'm impressed~ :meow: But a little more, bear with me shall we?

~
Now at the moment, you may be wondering what my art thoughts are. Well. I want to draw humans. And if I've gotten to where I am in animal anatomy in a year, I believe I can do so with humans too. And I've started making extra time sketching humans on the corners of my class work pages or my schedule. And I'm determined to never stop.

I'm still not satisfied with my animal art, never will be fully, but this is what fuels me. Keeps me going. Feeds my ambition. I may try to come off as calm, reserved, nonchalant, and controlled. But the side of me knows better that I'm ambitious and I'm not afraid to admit so. 
Because if there's a will
there's a way.
And with my ambition and desire to improve, my will to do better, I've done it.
And I'm here to show you, to show everyone, it's possible. And that I'm not the limit.
There are others yet just waiting to do better than me. Put even more time. More effort. 
I'm doing the best I can with what I have.

But what you may ask is my ultimate goal in writing this?
I want to make sure that a few things are clear:
-I'm socially awkward; yes.
-I really never have been popular in real life; most likely never will be. (who knows, if I want it enough maybe there'll be a way with my will, but as for now I'm content, and used to it)
-I'm an artist through and through. And what makes me one is my passion for art, and never my skill.
-Talent is another word for the ability to put work into what you love. In this definition, you cannot do anything without the talent. If it's defined as natural ability to do things phenomenally, then let me tell you I didn't come here by snapping my fingers.
    a) because I can't even snap them /facepalm/
    b) you're probably head-desking due to my sarcastic and fail-of-a sense of humor
    c) if it wasn't clear, magic doesn't exist in the 21rst century therefore talent isn't what you think it is
-I may seem harsh, rude, or insensitive, uncaring. But I didn't put this up for my pleasure. So the least I can ask if that you be considerate before making judgmental thoughts.
-Art isn't for everyone. That's why we have singers, actors, dancers, engineers, scientists, you name it~ Find your passion. Pursue it. Live it, breathe it.
-And finally, be yourself. And realize that you're special in your own way but yes, work really is what's going to bring you somewhere.
-And really? If you love it, then it won't be work. Art is never work for me. It is in the literal sense, but to me, when people ask how I get the patience to draw so much? I reply simply: I love every moment of it.

:heart: So please, I thank you, everyone who's read this, for your time. And may you all have a wonderful night~

And morning/afternoon/evening.
Thank you,

Celine

Oh wow...I'm so late reading this |D But I have to say, it inspired me so much! Thanks for writing it >w<
I always think that my art will never be up to standard, will never make people say--"Oh look! That's so awesome!" And I used to get mad when even people who traced, had more watchers/followers/etc than me, and I kind of got to that point where I desperately forced myself to make my style look better and my art started to get even worse. But this journal's really given me a new perspective on this whole "talent" and "popularity" buisiness, and how most people who do well really have spent a looooooot of hard work and effort into thier art, in many different ways. I'll keep doing the same as well C:
btw, it's absolutely amazing to see how much you've improved since then!

Oh this inspired me a lot!
I can understand you, I was the Loner, also a "Freak" in 1th Grade up to now, today I am in 10th Grade. I use to draw every day, even when I am ill XD or something.
Every day I try to improve my artwork and when I watch my works from 2011/2012 I am so happy how much my style and art changes! On my first deviantart account 2 years ago I only reached 60 watchers in 1 year, today I got over 600 Watchers in the same time (1year)! When I saw your first picture you posted in this journal I was pretty "shocked"(on a friendly way) how much someone can prove! Everything I only could say is, keep up the great work! (:

Wow, thanks for linking me to this! It was pretty long, but so inspirational! It makes me want to spend more time on my art, and never give up on my drawings like I usually do. I pretty much always stop when I'm less than halfway done with a drawing, if I'm not pleased with it. My problem is that I am impatient; I pressure myself to whip out a masterpiece in a day, and that's my main obstacle. I too, am socially awkward, and very shy. People who only know me online may think I'm just an outgoing, happy-go-lucky bubble of joy, but I'm not. I'm incredibly timid and insecure around people I don't know. I really enjoyed reading this! Thanks for sharing this journal with me!

If you'll never be satisfied, what's the point of putting that much in? Do you really enjoy it or are you only persisting with it out of a stubborn sense of ... I dunno, whatever? Is the process of drawing actually fun for you or are you just pursuing a neverending quest for improvement, and knowing at that, and somehow not suffering from cognitive dissonance?

Ah quick apologies beforehand, but I actually don't agree fully with my old self in this journal anymore XD Although I did not mean it like that either.

Please don't assume that though, I would rather quit art then simply pursue it because I wish to see where I can go before I die.

I must say I'm offended but I understand how this could've been read differently so I'm sorry if it came off that way but no. I love art.

I suppose if to clarify things better, I meant that I'm never satisfied fully because there's always room for improvement. Prior to this journal, I had received a suicidal note indirectly accusing me of just being lucky to be "good" at art and the unfairness that they couldn't get anywhere and I suppose I was in a bit of an emotional fit while writing this.. trying to make the point that my improvement wasn't something I was born with.

But yes. Drawing is more than just fun. I'm slowly getting more satisfaction out of my work but I meant to say I know it'll never be perfect either. 

Well either way! Sorry for the misunderstanding, I definitely love art or else I wouldn't bother working for it.

Ohhh I see :dummy: sorry of you're offended, I didn't mean to be accusatory or anything ^^; But I do agree that the skills aren't just something you're born with (though the ability to learn those skills might be :o) I just think true enjoyment of something is when doing it is an end in and of itself instead of a means to something else :icontarddanceplz: You seem to really enjoying drawing considering how much you went through to do it, but the way you talked about it does give off more of a "hard work for the sake of improvement" vibe that I don't quite agree with for some reason ^^; There's nothing wrong with that, it's just me :iconnoeswooplz:

No problem!

I suppose that's another problem I had while writing. I suppose I forgot to mention that it really doesn't count as work when you love doing it although sometimes it's hard to make the point without calling it work. 

If I may correct myself then, I meant to say that you have to keep drawing/painting to improve although even if it's technically considered work, it shouldn't feel like it :) At least I hope that's more clear too.

As someone with similar feelings as you, this has given me a new drive to get better at art. As I always have looked and wondered how people draw so well. I was naive enough to believe I should be good at it straight away otherwise I'm not meant to be an artist. 

However, your story proves that hard work brings results. And from this I shall use you as my example. 

Thank you.

 i feel like you just opened my eyes.... all this time i have been looking ahead, thinking down upon myself and inwardly beating myself up, thinking, i'll never be that good.... i'll never get there... i'll never improve like they did. But i read this and i feel like my eyes have been opened, like after looking forward for so long i stopped and looked back... and wow... i thought i was the only one who "over worked" them selves like that. last summer i did the same, stayed in my room for hours, just working on improving, drawing for hours at a time, i would skip every single meal except dinner (when my dad would force me out of my room to eat, he didn't know i was missing my other meals) without realizing it. I would get yelled at for spending so much in front of a screen. I wouldn't go to the bathroom until i couldn't hold it any longer because i wouldn't want to step 1 foot away from my art. I went on vacation with my family, sadly beforehand i had a allergic reaction to a plant in my yard, i had to go on medication that wouldn't allow me into the sun. I was in pain, sometimes having trouble breathing, i stayed home while everyone went to the beach, and instead of curling up and sleeping my pain away i would spend all day drawing, i would find a shady spot outside and practice for hours until everyone got back. at night they would take me out, and even then i would study everything, imagining how i would draw it. studying the look of the shadows,the ocean, the night sky, so i could try to draw it later. During school, i spend my time sketching in the margin of my papers, i constantly get yelled at by teachers, and sometimes sent to the other room to do the work by myself... but i kept sketching. Art is everything i ever wanted. I get picked on about my drawing, but my friends (although not many) are always there to pick me back up. i get to go have art classes in school this year, and it's the only thing i look forward to in my school day, i listen to every word and study each thing as if my life depended on it. The thing is... no matter how much i put myself down, and feel like giving in.. i can't... i can't give up art... it's everything to me. And now that i look back i do see that i improved greatly over the summer, but i have this hunger to improve more, and it's as if that hunger never goes away. I know this is long... and i'm sorry. but... thank you... just... thank you. Because this... is exactly what i needed. :tighthug:

Oh wow, this incredible. I mean I know you're a 100% artist, but seriously you could be a writer if you wanted too! You're really good with words. 
But Ahhh I can totally relate to this! I spend so much time drawing! I mean when I ask other people what they've done in the summer, they say stuff like hanging out with friends, going to camp, traveling, being with people, etc. I hang out with my friends too, of course, but really, the majority of my summer was spent drawing. Hours and hours of drawing. Every day. Usually, I hear people saying that they procrastinate making art, but I'm the opposite: I have to tell myself to get OFF the computer and go somewhere. Get outside. Find some inspiration in nature. Also art is the only thing I really excell at - I can skate and write, sure, but nothing amazing. I can't dance or sing or play sports, but I can draw.  Well I'm good at petting cats too ;D
But no matter how alone they may feel, an artist has its imagination. And what can do with that? IMAGINE. Imagine characters. Once you imagine a character, they're always there with you. They won't lie too you, lose faith, get angry, and aslong as you have your imagination you will have your characters.
And your ideas
Concepts
Stories
Pretty much whatever you fancy imagining. 

Oh yes, I do the same day-dreaming/thinking for hours thing. People frequently ask me "are you okay? You've been sitting in the same position, staring at the same thing, for ages" i always just say "I'm thinking" and they usually look at me like "what?" 

And yes yes you really have to work to get good at something. What really annoys me is when people whine about being "horrible artists" so I say, "well draw something then :D you're probably not as bad as you think" so they pick up a peice of paper, and scribble something, obviously not trying. And after about five second they say "okay, look I drew something. See, it looks like crap!"
Well
MAYBE that's because 
it took five seconds
You were obviously not trying
You were probably just trying to make me think you were horrible at drawing
Of course you haven't got anywere with an attitude like that. "I'll never be able to draw anything, what's the point of trying?" will not magically make you improve. 
actually capu, I have to disagree with you - snapping your fingers WILL make you better, because magic DOES exist in the 21st century, and I CAN snap my fingers actually all of that is a lie, I fail at snapping my fingers, no matter how hard I try. 

Gosh, this is a long comment D: it wasn't meant to be this long XD
But yes. i have said what I have wanted say.

I read every bit of this, and... It's really amazing that you feel that way, in my opinion. In a good way of course! That's just really.. Wow. Seriously, good for you. If you're that determined, then yeah, you're gonna go somewhere in life. That really inspires me. I'm sort of a lazy person, and I don't really ever try my best. I pretty much always do everything sort of.. 'ok.' Not amazing or anything. Your determination though.. Christ! Seriously, I admire you for this. Good for you!!

wow...Im ashamed to actually admire this but to be honest I use to study your art and a few other artists and would actually cry and lower myself because I thought I wasn't good enough in art and talent. I couldn't make my art realistic enough, or full of perfect luminosity...fill in the blanks,
but you're right art isn't for everyone, art is just something to kill time for me or to do as a gift for my friends online . but my real passion is music, with singing and practicing and growing to be female rock guitarist . I respect this journal a lot it honestly has burned out the insecurity within me.thank you.<3

Sorry its so much. I honestly believe you have so many messages but I'd like to let you know that you've moved some people, and I'm one of them.
