This is the first time I've drawn Gyarados in 15 years.

Why? Why has it been so long? Because I was afraid to try. I was so daunted by its design, so worried that my drawing would look weird, so scared to step outside of my artist's comfort zone, that I avoided it. I even chose not to catch a Magikarp in my Yellow Nuzlocke run because I didn't want to have to draw it in my comic. That's a lot of avoidance.

But sometimes we have to take risks. Usually, stepping outside of our comfort zone comes with the biggest reward of all. Even though this is a small example and it's just one Pokemon out of hundreds, I'm so glad I took the risk and decided to draw this guy. (from memory, by the way!)

I'm not saying all of your art will look perfect on the first try. It won't. This isn't perfect. It may not even look good. But you'll never know unless you try.

If you take a chance, you may just surprise yourself :)
