Yes I have several artist rivals. However it doesn't help that I'm going into the art field for a job and honestly, it's very large competition to get in the bigger companies and even more to get your names known in the art community.
Not exactly rivals, but I have an artist I've looked up to since I was a child and want to impress, which is a little similar? I try to work hard and just do my best so she can be proud when I say "you inspired me"!
Also Rivalen? Nein, eher nicht. Bei mir ist das so, wenn ich jedem sehe, der gut zeichen kann, dann versuche ich mich darann zu orentieren und mich dadurch zu verbessen. Also nehme ich andere Künstler eher zum Vorbild als zum Rivalen ^^
