Never stay complacent
Do you guys know the feeling . ever get the mind blowing experience once you hit a realization that so many
greater and admirable people come before you, and realize how tiny you are , how small and
young you are, how inexperienced you are in the grand scheme of things and all because of one small thing you saw you liked
, then you did more research and had your WORLD BLOWN.
I first got that sweet rush and giddy glee of having made this discovery, of seeing such amazing talent. Then the realization.
I'm not good, is the first thought.
Then it is quickly quashed.
Because that is defeatist talk.
Now, I am VERY lucky in the regards that growing up I had a very strong support group in the form of my parents and
now I have a younger brother. I NEVER had to deal with some of the soul crushing shock some artists get when they
make the same realization and epiphany , especially after a long peroid of ...Dare, I say it. Complacency.
Cuz I'm no longer that young, and frankly, I am moderately good at creating art that to me is moderately acceptable , though some days
I do get overly critical and poke at all the stuff in my art.
Sure, my art level may not be that level yet but that means I just have to take it into check and start working on it MORE, amirite?
When I hit that realization, I tend to go into what I call, a major RESTYLE. Maybe you guys will see the changes in the next
But the point is this. I have to unlearn all the toxic shit that was forced into me during my very formative years
as an easily impressed teenager, things during my very vital years growing up when I was in animation school aka Polytechnic.
Especially now I no longer want to be an animator. I want to be a comic artist, always have really. The end game when I joined animation school was really to improve my anatomy and part rebellion.
So that means no more focussing on churning out , churning, churning and churning and more attention to stuff , little things
like linework, textures and little things that are so easily overlooked.
Guys. Please be patient. Things are gonna be fantastic. I feel like a caterpillar about to cocoon.
A phoneix about to be reborn.
Just wait ;3
