In the past few years, I've been especially wary about resolutions to further pursue my art, to improve both quality and quantity, as I always end up leaving it for long periods of time. But I'm hoping to change that year. I feel that I've made serious improvements towards learning in the past few weeks than I have in a year, so I feel devoting myself can only mean well. So here's to perseverance!
  • Listening to: Kenny Loggins Highway to the Danger Zone

  • Playing: My new 3DS haven't seen light of day since
  • Eating: New Year's leftovers

I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, as a pre-schooler drawing Power Rangers, to an elementary student drawing Gundam, and towards most recently a middle-schooler/high schooler drawing manga! While I may bore from video games, and television, case in point I ALWAYS make time for my craft. Whilst they say not to rest on one's laurels, I must admit, it was the positive reactions of my classmates throughout my elementary years that gave me the confidence to keep drawing. But it was the skill and grace of the real artists I encountered, growing up, that kept me grounded. You know them-- the artists that make the weak willed give up, and utter "why bother" but are too humble to admit their own skill. "But", I always told myself, that "If you keep trying. you can surpass them". Let it be known that art is not a contest, but when you inherit the hot-blooded competitive nature of your mother, it damn sure feels like one. I guess this cycle of being the cream of the crop and feeling inferior has helped me progress to where I am today as an artist-- but I don't want to improve to be loved and boost my ego, I want to "want to" improve for the love of the craft. I think achieving that is one of my number one goals in my art, and admitting this is the first step.

Thank you anonymous contributor wherever you may be! I can't thank you personally, so I'll get back to work on some art!
