I have been in so-called "art class" nearly every year in school. Why? I never learn anything new about creating art. The only things that I have learned in these classes involved the history of art and how much of a pain it is to create a good quality project within a short deadline. I would like for my teacher to really teach.

I know I'm good at drawing but it's annoying that many people assume that I enjoy doing it. After discovering that I'm an artist, some people would suddenly start overestimating my motivation for doing anything creative. I would much rather take a nap or play a video game. I'm too lazy to put forth that kind of effort.

When I do manage to finish something that passes my personal quality test, I don't get many, if any, real constructive criticism. Compliments are nice but they do not mean anything to me unless that person is a much better artist than I and they are sincere. I only remember one time when someone gave me suggestions on how to improve.
I suppose that's alright, though. It seems that there is no better critic to one's work than its own creator...unless that person happens to be exceptionally arrogant.

I believe that I have said enough for now. I appreciate if you have actually taken the time to read this, even though it's not particularly important.

~~This is unrelated to the topic, but I am going to attempt to participate in NaNoWriMo this year. :meow: I could use some luck. ^^;

My first project in 2014. Yeah, I'm late. I didn't even want to draw this so its quality isn't as good as it could have been.
This is a super closeup of the inside of a watch, if you haven't figured that out already.
