...how do you get rid of what? 0.0

Oh, perfectionism. Well, the evangelism section probably wasn't the most appropriate place to put this, but all I can say is... you never will. Something will almost always look "off". This is coming from me though, and my experiences with art. That is how you improve. You see the little things that bug you (even if others can't), and you try to fix them. By improving in little tiny areas over a long period of time, you drastically improve. I can show you art I created 2 years ago, and by comparison my new artwork looks MUCH better. Why? Because working on the little things that annoy me (my inability to make something look just right, for example) made me better. :D

Although you may not see any differences, I've improved dramatically in terms of correcting proportions and my coloring has greatly improved.

These are from 11'

Notice the difference...

Yeah, I'll have to agree with what Fahn said. I'm also a perfectionist with my art (which is why I hardly show anything to anyone), especially when it comes to photography. I always tend to look for everything that is wrong with a photo, even when others tell me that they love the photo.

You'll never really be able to get rid of your perfectionism, and I see that as a good thing. My perfectionism is what gives me the desire to always learn more about what I'm doing. If I wasn't a perfectionist, I don't think I would learn anything new, because I would always stop at "good enough", and never aim for anything better.

Rather than compensate for your weakness, keep trying to draw eyes until you draw them the way you WANT them to look :P

That is how you improve. Not good at drawing something that you want to be good at? Keep drawing it! Just try to slowly improve upon it, fix minor mistakes one at a time, and draw lightly so mistakes are easier to erase. Look at my drawings over the period of 4 years, and tell me that you don't see DRASTIC improvement, not just in drawing ability, but in coloring techniques, anatomy, and proportions. All of these will improve rapidly without you even knowing it if you do as I say.

Then again, I've been drawing since I was 3. I've had a few years more experience than most. ;)

Anything you create is awesome, Fahn. You do what you wanna do and eventually something will stick. :3
