So I've been thinking a lot lately about what is holding artists back. I find that often you don't need to improve your technical ability, like drawing or sculpting to make more appealing art. It boils down very much to things like picking better colors and learning about composition.

Are you an artist feeling stuck or a programmer that want to be able to make art for your own projects?

I would be really curious to hear what you have found hard. What you did to improve. Or what you're still struggling with. What is it that you want to achieve?

Just FYI, the idea that art must somehow be "better" by choosing better colors or improving technical ability is antithetical to my approach to the medium.

In order to become "good" at art the trick is to enjoy making it and to make it every day. The technique will come eventually. And if you get bogged down in worrying about competing with some ideal that other people have put in your head you will never have a single bit of fun making art.
