Finding the right tools
I think this is the hardest step. Bad quality supplies can mess up your results and you will lose your fun. That's the reason why I disliked painting with watercolor at school: We only used cheap tools like thin paper which crinkles or brushes which lose hair. Honestly, it's not fun at all picking up all lost hair on your painting or having a finished picture full of wrinkles!
Only when I was lucky to get better quality watercolors, brushes and papers, I fell in love with this traditioal medium!
You don't have to buy the most expensive tools, just make sure buying a higher quality than ordinary "school quality"!
I recommend buying art supplies in a shop for artists.

It's really weird not being Conekonyan anymore
IT'S ALSO UPSETTING THAT
YOU CAN'T USE THE OLD ONE IF YOU WANTED TO GO BACK
I also read that
People who make decisions that you can't go back from
are usually happier than those who made decisions where you could change your mind
I will fall under this brain trickery
ANd my brain will convince me that I DID make the right choice
and will eventually come to think this was the best decision I could have ever made in my entire life

I'm already feeling it now
I shall love my new name
And hug it
And pet it
And name it George
BUT AT LEAST MY NEW NAME IS MORE ME THAN THE LAST ONE
I remember making Conekonyan up, on my first day signing up for deviantArt
I really wanted something original
