I highly agree with this list- but I still want to learn from other artists and figure out how to make my digital work pop as much as my traditional (well before i started my "Just doodling" phase)

>.< I always show my family what I make and they smile and nod with that look they think they are hiding which says "BURN IT, BURN IT NOW, BEFORE IT TOUCHES ANYTHING ELSE IN THE HOUSE"
God I feel even worse that I needed this wake up call x.x

1. and 5. are probably my biggest weaknesses, with 1. being the main reason as to why 5. develops excellent chart and favorited as a means of eliminating these problems.

Good list. The only troublesome one is number two, and that's simply because there ARE families out there that will cheer a budding artist on. Mine is one of them - my parents love that my sister and I are into the arts and creative writing. Just thought I'd point out that talking about your art with your family isn't necessarily a bad thing all around. :)

#2's point isn't that you shouldn't tell your family about your work, rather you shouldn't always expect complete positive reactions from your family. In a way, it's connected to #8 where if you depended on your family's positive feedback, you stick to only what they love to see. My parents are also very supportive of my choice in going into art, but I doubt they'll love everything I do (for example, I experimented with some abstract painting and my mom told me to never put it in my portfolio).

I am a new artist but already I am guilty of doing almost everything that is on that list. From now on I will be doing the opposite to what I do now. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Things I usually do (sadly ^^;) that are on the list:
1. I'm REALLY bad with that...
2. BOY do I do that... =/
10. Not very bad at that, but I do it occassionally.

Things I do that aren't on this list:
Stress out when I mess up a little- even on the sketch!
Get mad when I run out of ideas.

I don't have many problems when I draw art, but although few, they're pretty big. ^^;
