Jealousy = “Feeling of grudging admiration and desire to have something possessed by another”
I’ve come across a large number of jealousy cases in all the art communities i’ve been. Even from myself. Sometimes you cant help it. You see a great shot and you start thinking “Well… thats easy if you have the equipment”, or “I have a much better shot”, etc etc. Is frustating to see other people triumph when you’re failing. Thank god i havent succumbed so many times to jealousy, but i’ve seen a lot of artists and amateurs that have given up and tear friendship relations apart because of that.
The subject is complex. Its human nature wanting to be better, but sometimes you cant expect to better that everyone.
Have you ben jealous when seeing somebody else’s picture?
