Once i complete a piece, i not only feel completly relieved to have finished it but also an imense feeling of worth. I suppose i enjoy the aspect of just looking at the finished article. Although i am usually quite proud of my art i always find it rather comforting to have anothers opinion, especially if they can offer some form of constructive criticism as i always try to offer some. As for individualism--this rarely affects me with my works, as i dont actually think about my self during the process. My main aim for alot of my work is to evoke feelings inside the person viewing to piece but not particularly representing any type of individualism, unless your talking about the physical techniques of painting which i try to keep unique.

I can honestly say most of the time no. I used to be proud of my work, since losing my artistic skills and having not found them my works lost the effect which i liked and it makes me not happy about it. Sometimes i am proud. most i'm not but it's still good. =) Kudos! ~Joey

I'm very rarely proud of a piece that I finish. I'm usually not proud until someone tells me that they like it.

yes, it doesnt matter if somebody else like it or not as long as i know i give my best to my artwork..it expresses my emotion and mood by the time i am doing my artwork.

It depends on situration. Very few times it happens that my painting are not according to my will so I don't feel proud. Othewise I feel proud and want to look it again and again from different angles. so funny! isn't it?
