new canvas - new attempt

But after some time... you realize you have just been repeating the same mistakes over and over again. You don't have to do the same thing. In fact, you don't have to do things one way. Or another. Really, there is no way to follow because you are the one to create your way.
And you can always start with a completely new canvas.

VIDEO up! on my youtube channel :)

new canvas - new failure
„OK, let's try again.“ what you always say. This has always been your mantra, your encouragement when everything else and especially you fail.
„Let's try again.“
You can always just start anew. At some point your failure will turn into success, you will be able to move on and improve, trust me.
„Let's try again.“
The more you try, the better you will get. No one has started as a professional. They all climbed their way up with practice.
„Let's try once more.“
Others have been at this point too. Where eveything just seems like a failure, but you will find your way out eventually and create something good over time.
„One more time.“
It can't just be you who continuously fails. You might need more attempts than others but with hard work and real dedication to your work you will be able to accomplish the same things others can. Or at least get close to that.
„Just keep going.“
Others just had more time to practice. You haven't been granted that much spare time to practice as much. Naturally, you're a little behind. But it's OK.
„Try it again.“
Maybe it's because you don't possess any talent that you fail so much. Yes... yes, that must be it! It's a natural thing that you're not nearly as good as them.
„Just do it.“
If you just got a little help from them, you could improve a lot more. It takes so much time to figure everything out by yourself. You're a slow thinker. You need some help.
It doesn't matter. There's just no helping it. Everything is a fail. And it's your fault because you didn't try hard enough in the past. But... nevermind...
„Let's try again.“
Somehow, your mantra has become your burden. You end up trying the same things over and over again. And failing over and over again. You try to do it the same way and you try to do it correctly this time. And the next. And the one after that as well. Again and again you try but you always fail in the end. Why?! Just why won't it work out?! You tried so hard! You put so much effort into it already, so why won't it work out? You slowly start to avoid it and you slowly start to give up.

Huhu Calla, vllt erinnerst du dich an den einen Kerl, den ich gemalt hatte, wo du erstaunt warst, dass er nich auf kerle steht xD
Er kriegt jetzt n neues Bild... jetzt passt auch die Mittellinie besser, oder?
