I’m kinda schizophrenic on myself. On one side I know I’m a skilled artist. On the other side I hate looking at my ‘recent‘ comics (some of them aren’t even a year old.)
However, when coming back to them after a year or so, browsing through them, I feel good about them again, even when seeing the mistakes and struggles in it.
I mean, even if some of them are cringy, it feels great that I did them and was able to grow.
So, yeah, you don’t need to love your art atm. But as long as you apply yourself and do your best, your art will morph into something you like.
Also, keep in mind that people see your work with different eyes. While we as creators are focused on our shortcomings, our audience enjoys the overall feel of the work.
To make things short, strife for better skills and products but don’t hate yourself or your work. Respect your efforts and your skills and keep on drawing
