Failure by xkappax Failure by xkappax
I drew this shortly after messing something really important up. I was feeling sad, and when I feel sad, I draw ponies. ^_^

And it's not a mistake that Derpy doesn't have her cutie mark in this image. When I drew this, I was thinking "What if Derpy kept trying to get her cutie mark and she kept messing things up? And what if she was much older when she finally got it?"

I'd be lying if I said this wasn't an extremely personal piece. I mean, come on... what artist doesn't feel like a failure when it comes to their art at one point or another? We wouldn't be artists if we didn't feel this way. :)

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this. ^___^

This is available as a shirt over at welovefine! Here's the link: [link]

If you want any of these in women's sizes, please go to the comments for the actual shirt and tell them! WeLoveFine won't be able to make a women's version unless you guys tell them you want one! :)

Wow, you captured a lot of emotion in this pic. Very well done. I know how she feels, all too well. Here's hoping I eventually succeed too. I'm glad to see you made it through your tough time. Keep up the great art.

Thanks again. :) I think if you work hard enough and have enough drive, everyone can eventually succeed. This was actually one of the first shirts of mine that welovefine took into their league of artists, and I always found that to be very poetic. :P

Aw, I'm glad you like it. I was constantly getting shot down for my art, constantly getting told to quit. Now I do it for a living. :) You can do great things if you believe in yourself a little. :)
