I'm sorry this is so much pointless pathetic bullshit!  The only way you get good at anything is by practicing every day, not "finding" something.  Start practicing, and stop making dumb posts like this.

maybe too tough love there, Adam, but true. There's a self-helping loop where if you try something enough and get a bit good at it, the results give you even more motivation to continue. Encouragement from within is the best thing you can hope for. Do things until you can get good at them. Or die.

Could you tell us your age? It is to be expected that you'll have a lot of emotional rollercoasters, especially about creative stuff, while you're a teenager. Don't worry, we've all gone through them and most of us survived without doing anything too embarassing. I've set fire to flames... I mean, I've set fire to comics right after making them when I was 15 because they WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( and all that stuff.

My advice? Don't take your life too heavily for now, and keep doing what you do. Make stuff, hate it or like it for a while, make new stuff. Keep practising.

I disagree with Helm, you should become an hero and give us epic lulz. Heh, kidding, but to be serious, if you think you suck, the only way to make you not suck is to practice, practice, practice, so just keep drawing and eventually you'll get better.

I don't understand the 'I don't know what to draw!' problem, I've never had it. I just don't draw until I have something I want to draw. Other times I ask other people to tell me what to draw, and I do that for practise.

Dude, I've been pixelling since I was 15, I'm 16 right now, you gotta be kidding me if you can't come with not even a single idea, also, you're not making much sense "I made a few pixels then I wanted to do more but I just couldn't think of what to do...", wait, a few pixels, like did you make a circle and go "I give up"?

It's not hard to do art, I mean jesus dude, just decide something, watch some TV, listen to some music and make something, you don't have to be totally original, go ahead and make some random person, it's still an idea, amirite? Now stop being emo and do something with your life, you can either bitch or you can start trying to get good at what you wanna do.
