I know the feeling... I gave one of my friends such good feedback once because I couldn't draw a person in the past, but then when I was about to draw she snatched away the pencil and just said it in my face;

"I'll draw it. My drawings are better then yours."

All art is beautiful. Each piece says "this is what I can do now. Watch and see what I can do in another six months."

Ignore those people; your art is cute in its own way judging by the pic c: They are just the ones who expect more fancy shmancy detail

I know that feel. Or something you worked so hard on, and they only say cool. Or when you just scribbled a horrible little drawing, they praise it more. :( It's okay to feel this way. But just remember your good enough for yourself.

don't worry, there's no such thing as a 100% fair critic because everyone has their own opinion on what art is, some people think that realistic is the only true art, and that cartoon shouldn't be called "art" some people don't care is your back leg is crooked or if your nose is a bit too big, other's think that only the art that is smooth and perfect (in their eyes) is worth comments and favs, some people don't care and just want to see you improve or grow, it doesn't matter if you're good or not it just matters if you keep doing what you love.
if you love drawing, keep doing it! if you only draw because it what the people around you want to see, I'd stop and branch out.
but that's my opinion ;)

Not self-centered at all. All you need is practice, and even if you never live up to their expectations, just try to live up to your own.

Learn how to take a critic, if you can't take it you are not ready for the art world, critics can be positive and negative, expect both and learn how to use them to grow.

they could be people who can't tell the difference between constructive criticism and insulting, so they usually tend to insult, and think they are giving a proper critique. My art teacher always told us to watch out for idiots like that, and so did a famous artist who was selling his work in Houston Texas 2 years ago. How i like to put it, Art is like a muscle, you need to train it. Just keep practicing.

Aaw! poor girl.  I just wouldn't let people look at your art unless they're other artists you trust.  people who aren't artists usually mean well but don't understand so they don't really know what to say.

Although sometimes people say that you are not good enough, take their words to your heart. Work hard to prove that they are wrong and grow stronger than ever before~

You'll always be good enough. Even if others think you aren't. Even if YOU think you aren't. You are. You're great and full of potential and love and such greatness and your art is a reflection on all of that beauty.

There is a point between critiquing someone's art and just plain out bashing someone's art. Which is something many users of this site and more need to learn.  No, I disagree!

Hey, if you can't take a critique, that's something you'll have to work out. You can't blame people for thinking the way they do. Accepting a critique is just one step ahead for an artist.

If you feel insecure about your art instead of being upset about it, you should keep working at it until you are satisfied with the outcome. :shrug:

Art, is art, you cannot quantify the quality of art
you can't even EXPLAIN art
Art is art, no matter what it is.
Nothing will every be good enough for everyone, the important thing is that you enjoy making that art, and that it helps you express yourself

Sounds of these exist in thy only in thy head
For the commentators have only encouragement said
Don't listen to the lies inside that tear thy sides
For your art is beauty, no mater what thoughts thou subscribe.

Keep arting on, young one! For one day, you will see the beauty in the other's eye's lies.

I hate getting comments from my family. I feel like they arent telling the truth because they are my family. My friends are never scared to hate my art and tell me why and im always confused if im supposed to fell happy that its not a comment or sad that they are criticizing my style. Yet, if a random stranger or my art teacher (shes awesome) comments on my art i only feel joy. 
Either way, art it amazing because everybody has a different style of it but its still called art. All art is good in my opinion. If you aren't happy with your own art then just practice until you are :)
While I was writing this it actually made me feel better about myself...

I don't have experience on this and like ~orbit26 I get comments from my friends here but I do have had critique that is positive
and like people have said already here that you should just forget them.
But I KNOW it is NOT easy as that. Take your time, practice your art. (: It's your art, and you should feel good doing it.
Hope you're going to be ok dear~

oh well that might depend on your perception,
you see there is a not very clear difference from a constructive critique from a "you're not good enough"
if such were the case it would suggest that you are not exceptionally well yet but on your course, telling you what to do that can make it better, etc.

tell you what. i'll go to your channel and make comments of my own and see for myself (i just require your account location)
