I'm currently pumping out plushie drawings cause they're so fun to make! I still am working on the series I mentioned in February, but the plushie drawings are currently taking priority due to how much fun they are haha. I've only been using MS Paint to draw for a little while, but it's been such an adventurous way to draw. At first, I expected a bit of a challenge. But for my drawing style, it's actually made drawing a lot easier.
Even though I use my mouse to draw, it's honestly not that hard and I encourage everyone to try it because it's free to do (unless you don't have MS Paint of course). ^_^ The line and curve tools are so helpful! I want to make a YouTube tutorial explaining how I do it eventually.
As for the plushies, I'm basically going to draw all the characters/shows I happen to like. Drawing is just a hobby for me. I'm not professional or expert, and I love the concept of using art to show other people your ideas. I'm a very casual 'artist' haha. For anyone who feels pressured by the professional art world, just remember that you make your art for fun/yourself. There doesn't have to be an obligation to please others or to constantly get better at it. If you love making art because it makes you happy, then that's all that matters. I support all of you!
As a person within the casual art community, I get sad when I see people feeling insecure about their art skills. For casuals, we don't always want to feel pressured to make perfect art, but people will still criticize the way we draw because they don't understand that we do it to please ourselves, not others. Not everyone wants to be a famous artist or a professional. We do it for the recreational aspect, not because we're pros. I encourage everyone to draw if they want to draw. Your skill level shouldn't hold you back from making your own unique creations.
That's also why I only make fanart pretty much. It's because I love the things I draw and there's a deeper connection to them as a result of being a fan. ^_^
Have a good day everyone!
