i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
Aw, anon, nooooooooo. D:
This is just from my opinion on art based from my personal experiences so this isn’t any type of “sure-fire” system to being a better necessarily. I hope it will help though~
- For one: You really never should put yourself down about your art, or anything at all! You are alive and you are important, rather you know it or not. ((
because you did not know you were alive before now, obviously. Good going me.)) I know it’s tough to believe in yourself, especially when someone/something might be discouraging you, trust me, I have been there and back a million times over with nothing to show for but lost opportunities because I listened to people who were wrong about me and didn’t take chances I should have out of fear they could be right. There are plenty of people out there in the world who are more than willing to make you doubt yourself or feel bad. You don’t have to join the ranks. BE ON YOUR OWN SIDE~
- For second: Keep working. Don’t quit even when it gets hard or challenging, just push on through even if the results are not 100% what you expected. The accomplishment of COMPLETION is better than giving up in the end, trust me. <3
- Make things even if they seem silly. Whatever inspiration calls for, draw/paint/whatever it. When you’re first trying to get your style settled or “art legs” stretched, it’s important to really expand and try new things, so don’t hold back. Make whatever the hell comes to mind! That doesn’t mean it’ll be the best piece you’ve ever created, but you really never know when a diamond in the rough could appear~
- For third: Keep looking over your shoulder. Sounds backwards, right? WRONG. :p Keep looking back at how far you have come, every tiny progression of your talent should be celebrated and remembered so you can continue!
- For fourth: Talk to a good pal. It might seem stupid, but talking to others about progress, mostly when they know you and your art history, can be very beneficial. It helps you keep a great perspective on the past and the now so you can look forward to the future for your art. It also helps when the person is incredibly honest with you about what looks bad and what looks hella good!
- For fifth: I think the last but best thing you can do is always remind yourself of how much you love your work. You HAVE TO LOVE IT IN SOME MANNER, even if you don’t always love the content or process. Commissions/contracts can be tricky and programs/tools can be hard to come by or not work properly. But as long as, by the time you’re finished for the day, rather the art looks perfect or not, you feel satisfied that you DID WHAT YOU LOVED, you’ve won the game~
I hope you found this helpful, Anon. <3 Never doubt what you are capable of because, as this awesome Bionical said “great masks take time to craft” and you have to be reasonable and fair with yourself and DON’T QUIT! You have what it takes, just believe in yourself~

#SAM WAS SO GREAT LET ME LIST SOME OF THE WAYS #fearlessly chatting with captain america; treating steve like a human being #recognizing something in steve that speaks to having a hard time adjusting to his situation #and bringing it up in a way that doesn’t put steve on the defensive or make it sound like something not perfectly normal #inviting him to a ptsd meeting without making it seem like he thinks steve needs therapy #or that therapy is something to be ashamed about needing #just so casual and so fucking cool #Sam will be your legs before you realize you can’t stand anymore #and he’ll never ever make that about him (via queenklu)
