Does anyone have that horrible karma where they ogle their artwork/photos/whatever and think it's the greatest thing ever, and then, looking back on it later, realize what utter shite it is?

I guess it's like dreams ... where you think you've come up with the greatest idea ever, and when you wake up, you realize you've invented the flying toaster?

Verily. The only great piece of art work I've created, I can't find. Sob..

Yeah, that happens to me all the time. 3 years ago, I thought all my sketches and stuff were amazing, but when I look back on them now, they're such obvious utter crap . . . but I guess that's how you know you're improving . . .

I've stolen it, and hidden it in a secret location that you'll have to uncover through a series of hints and clues in several undisclosed cities across the world.

Bwahahaha!

loads of times....but it's related to growth too, I mean, you get better as you go along, and so what you first saw as an accomplishment, later on turns out to be a thing to be ashamed of...

Whatever I write/draw/create etc. I endup disliking it within the next 24-hours and want to erase whatever I've done.

Sometimes however I'll endup trying to re-do something over and over.

One thing that happens to me is that once I finish a piece of artwork, I can't really judge whether it's good or bad.

I have to take my mind off it for like half an hour, and then go back and take a look at it so finally decide whether I did a good job or it's a piece of shit.

It seems to be the opposite for me... I think my work is shit (most times) and others tell me I'm a fool.

Good point! It's the same thing when it comes to recording yourself on your instrument. I listen to stuff I recorded on guitar a couple years back and man is it ever crap. I suppose I've upgraded to "acceptable" since then!

Oh yeah, I never realised that happened with music too. Actually, now that I think about it, pretty much anything I ever did a long time ago that seemed good at the time would probably be really shitty by my standards today. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing . . .

My art is either great or bad. Almost never in the middle.
