i just had this discussion and it was suggested i post about it here and im always going to jump at the chance to ruin deviantart for sulky grownups

idk if the community is still the same; it was small back when i was a 12 year old wide eyed innocent baby child with dreams. but i remember a lot of grown-ass adults trolling around for us kids who had aspirations of their own cartoons or comics or w/e and for some reason these adults tried to say it'd never happen (wow a 13 yr old cant draw like a 30 year old industry professional why even bother). and like, anatomy police? weird. weirdddd

(ok seriously as an aside imagine if you were noodling around on a guitar on your porch and someone just came up to you and started analyzing your performance uninvited, youd be like dude, go away)

anyway

im almost 24 and im a tiny infant comics padawan and i draw a comic about original characters (do not steal) that i made up when i was a teenager, for print publishing. so i mean, i dont want to brag too hard before i have the physical thing in my hand instead of just paychecks, but its a thing that happens. keep in mind i was just some dweeb who drew meta knight a lot and had a crush on shadow the hedgehog.

so i am a really bad influence: i think drawing exercises are boring and i drew cartoons before i learned realism. my realism is shitty tho i practice. i do everything the wrong way but i have enough fun that i can put the hours (and hours and hours) in. imo, draw what excites you instead of what some rando tells you to. anime is awesome, absoutely draw anime do you know how many comics artists came up on anime?? so many. i used to worship at the altar of technique but as an adult i think skill with no substance is boring. critique is way helpful and i dont think my art is great yet but i ignore feedback freely unless im interested in what the person has to say. you dont have to listen to me either cause you have a better idea of what you want to do.

also ive bought a sparkledog zine before. it was amazing. just sayin
