Art done by me. I love drawing and I am always trying to improve. I draw a variety of things so I wouldn't advise watching me for just one subject because I don't always draw the same thing and I can go pretty diverse. But yeah, I know my art isn't the best but I'm practicing and maybe one day, I'll reach a level to where I feel more confident with my art. :)

If you happen to like what you see and would like a drawing, I do have commissions and they are open. :) So if you're interested, feel free to send a note and we can work something out. :aww:

So I'm in the middle of making a video on my YouTube channel where I'm basically giving some advice to beginner level artist some tips on how to keep their morale to continue drawing and well, I'm at the point at talking about popular or higher skilled artists vs the lesser skilled artists and the topic of befriending and socialization.

•  Personally, I feel that it's kind of pointless for a lesser skilled artist to try and befriend a higher skilled artist because most of the time, the higher skilled artist is not open or interested in being friends with a lesser skilled artist. Mainly because they feel that the lesser skilled artist is just trying to leech free art from them which obviously isn't always true but well, the damage has been done as the higher skilled artist may have had that happen to them in the past where it was enough to make them not want to associate with a lesser skilled artist unless they're paying for a commission from them.

•  Also that they're not open to being friends with lower skilled artists because they already have their own clique/group/etc of other similar skilled artists, loyal returning commissioners, and friends from IRL. In short, they don't want newer friends, let alone lesser skilled artist friends.

•  Because of this, the way I see it is that beginner to in the middle artists shouldn't bother trying to associate with these higher level artist because more often than not, they'll just be rejected. Instead, I suggest that they should continue being inspired by these artists using their work as an influence while mingling and befriending other similar-skilled artists and growing together with them. This isn't to say that I'm not saying they shouldn't ask a higher skilled artist a question if they have any, ask away! But just to not push it any further than that because you'll only be disappointed.

And I find this to be even more true in the furry art fandom. But ahem, this is just all my opinion. I'm in the middle of writing the script for my video but I wanted to get other opinions or experiences on this matter. What do you guys think?

If you'd like to read a longer explanation on this breakdown, I did do a forum post on DeviantART if you'd like further context. I just warn you that it's a tad long lol.  If you already saw the forum post and already shared your thoughts or just didn't have anything you wanted to say, feel free to skip this journal haha.

Finally back in drawing mode

Hi there everyone, I go by the name Ratchetjak or "RJ" for short and I have been drawing since I was a wee lad. :) I plan on becoming a professional character designer in the future as I just love designing characters. I know I have quite a long way to go but with practice and perseverance, I know I will get there one day. :)

I'm pretty open to meeting new people and up for chats so don't be afraid to say hello as I try to respond back as much as I can. :nod:
