Story: I grew up in Cheltenham and have received my dad's love of technology gene as well as the looks of my mum x3 As I was growing up, my brother, who used to be a fan of Sonic introduced me to the series as well as the Crash Bandicoot one. I trained myself in drawing when I was around 5 years old and have been doing it ever since.

... am I the only one who gets incredibly jealous of people's artwork? I experience this a lot and feel as though I lose confidence whenever I see it ;3; In fact one of my biggest weaknesses is jealousy, I experience it A LOT in life, whether it's a drawing or just someone being better at something that I'm not and they get praised a lot for it...

I really want to get into sketching and airbrushing concept art, since my dream is to become a game artist but all of the tutorials I've found don't help me out, they only increase my jealousy, is there something wrong with me? :( I just can't seem to even find a unique style of art that I can be really good at, I suck at sketching, I suck at airbrushing, suck at proportions... pretty much everything XD

Can anyone help me to get more confident in my work? I find that I can't even draw good looking sketches... let alone a picture made entirely of airbrush. 

I know that a lot of you are really good at this sort of thing, even if you don't admit it yourselves, can anyone please tell me how you managed to become so good? What process did you go through in order to get good? 

Right now, I even feel too embarrassed to show my artwork to anyone. The last assignment I did in Uni, I was in a group of 6 people, three of us were the artists and their artwork got featured within the assignment, yet I couldn't find a single reference to mine... it's things like that that just make me wanna give up drawing all together... if not even a group of people my age like it then how is a group of professionals gonna like it?

Anyway, I'm sorry for sounding so down, I just really wanna actually like my art and be confident in it... 

I just really want to at least be able to draw things like this:… I know that a lot of gaming artists often start their pieces like this and they still look amazing!
