I recently had a talk with a good friend of mine who is just testing the waters with drawing, and it made me think about (in BNHA terms) my start-line. When I first started out, I had a conception of this straight shooting path towards what I believed to be “success.” But the more time I spent interacting with the art community, the more I doubted my original intentions. It seems simple now, having learned enough to draw what I want to, and having established myself in a comfortable fashion, but I remember how much I struggled with trying to figure out my purpose as an artist while at the same time battling style inconsistencies and mediocrity.
The truth is, I still face the same problems today. It’s only that I have enough experience to look at this now, and just let myself create what I want to. Art is expression, and my way of dealing with uncertainty is to just let life take me wherever it wants to. Kind of a no brainer, but to be able to draw what you love
