I don't think it's something bad to think your own art is not good. On one hand, it makes not to relax, if that is ever a good word in this case, and keep improvising. On the other hand, you may punish yourself a lot by always thinking your art is not that good. Those bad feelings may accumulate and the end result is you giving up.
Also, I may be wrong here, but maybe the reason you think it's not that good is because you had an idea of how the artwork was supposed to be. It's easy to think you own work is not that good when you had an idea of what it was supposed to be, that which you wanted to create as faithful as you imagined it, while everyone else only saw the end result you did.
I really dig your art. :)
@arkmsworld Here's your awkward thanks.
@diarium There isn't a single reason why artists dislike their own art. I don't see much value in trying to rationalise it, it's just an emotion that artists experience. I just accept it as that and move on.
The culture of purely finished work has certainly led to some drawbacks from what I've seen: the pressure to only post finished work, and also artists being unable to establish a process since the end result doesn't show the steps it takes to get there. Finished work is nice to look at, but it hides the parts that are most relevant to other artists; that is, how to actually bring the artwork from start to finish.
To be fair, though, there are some artists who can sketch but cannot polish their work, and there are some artists who can only seem to polish but never sketch. Maybe the diet should vary between artists, but I don't know for certain.
