原題:HOW 2 be CONFIDENT as an ARTIST
オリジナル掲載元:http://solar-citrus.tumblr.com/post/92187238395/ive-received-a-lot-of-letters-from-artists-asking

原著者のColleen Buttersさんから翻訳許可をいただきました。絵に限らず、何にでも共通することだと思います。クレジットを消さない限りは転載可です。

Colleen Buttersさんがオリジナルの下部に書いていた文章の訳:

私は「作品とブログをチェックしてほしい」という、たくさんのアーティストからの声を受け取っています。私はそういった人たちの多くが、病的な量のネガティブなコメントを作品に対して公然と投げつけられていることに気がつきました。本当に、心の底から憂鬱なことです。 :(
ひとりのアーティストとして、自信というのはとても重要な役割を担っています。自信は、疑惑や嫉妬を感じずに、学習し成長していく助けになるものです! あなたはあなただけにしかないものを持っている一人の人間で、あなたの前にはあなただけの道が広がっています。どれだけ恐ろしく思えても、あなた自身の道を歩むことは、決して他人にやってもらうことはできないのです。あなたが行かなくてはならない場所に行くことは、あなたにしかできないことで、あなたの作品をめちゃめちゃにけなすことは、その方法ではありません! 変化を起こすために、あなた自身とあなたにできることを信じてください。あなたにならできます!

自分の作品を愛し、自分自身を愛しましょう!

Sawako (Roamingsheep) has very graciously translated my recent comic in Japanese and did a wonderful job!!  owo  I hope this comic reaches out to everyone in every country, and this was a big step towards that dream.  ありがとう ございました!!

thank you so much for making the post about how to be confident as an artist. i'm going through an art block and felt so unmotivated, but that post gave me a lot of things i needed to hear. i hope you have a nice day ^ ^
chaerri asked

That’s wonderful!! (\owo/)  Art blocks can be pretty terrible, so I like to draw things I’ve never drawn before to get past them.  I hope you’ll have a wonderful day too!

Thank you for giving me the confidence. Now I truly believe my art is not trash. <3

Nobody’s art is trash!  Every drawing tells a story, and the more you draw the more exciting the story gets!!
