Hello, Sceptile, I've been following this and want to say some things. You /could/ become a good artist. Anyone could, but there are a couple of things holding you back. Its not /vp/ or 4chan, if anything, we're the ones helping you get better.

-First and foremost is the deviantART community. They don't tell you when something is bad, just endless "Love"s and "Joy"s. No one ever got good at anything with the critics sucking their dicks. You need to stop listening to them. They're nice people and all, but they have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. People telling you that your art is bad and how to make it better is what you want, not people telling you that your art is amazing.

-Next is this childish attitude. No one outside of your DA friends takes you seriously when you're posting things like "I tried killing myself". It makes it worse that you say you're a 17 year old. Just admit your real age, no one is going to think any worse of you, and you'll take a lot less heat for this kind of behavior. A post like this from a 12-13 year old is expected, so people will get off your case if you just admit it. You're more of a man for admitting something about yourself shamelessly than hiding behind a fake age. You also seem to think everyone who says your art is bad is insulting you, they're not.

-Your style. You need to stop going on MSPaint. Do you have a a pencil and paper? Thats going to be much better for you than this computer program. You need to learn about different techniques, too, because this 2D sidescroller style you have is destroying you. Try to do some drawings in a pose that isn't directly from the side, even if its terrible, its progress, and thats what you're aiming for. You also need to learn how proportion your bodies and heads, a great deal of your drawings have sizes done wrong, making them look ridiculous. Try to watch some videos of good artists. You'll benefit a lot.

#1: Uh... when did I say I was a 17 year old!?

#2: I'm still learning!

I'll admit right now, I'm from /vp/. So, I guess you could say I'm biased. But I'm interested.

Why do you draw? What motivates you?
darksceptile3333 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
I draw because it's fun.
Glitch-kun Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Okay, but... do you recognize that your art is terrible? It objectively is.
If you find it fun, and realize it's terrible, why not draw, but not post it online?

If you don't realize you have no ability (or, lack any productive experience whatsoever), you'll continue to be made a laughingstock.

Personally, I think you just like having your dick sucked by your fans here.

(How old are you, by the way?)

I have been following this argument for a while and I have to say something:

Don't kill yourself. It's just internet. You just uploaded your artwork and others are started "trolling". So, what! I would not kill myself from that.

That is all. I tried to be objective, I'm sorry if I'm being harsh. No, I don't hate you, I'm just expressing my opinion.
