tardissquared asked: Hello how do you get so good at art?? Like I have always wanted to draw but I'm really abysmal at it and so I just guess I feel like I'll never be good at it so how do you do it??
1. Do whatever you suck at until you stop sucking at it. There is no magic ‘be better’ button, it’s just being bullheaded enough to keep going no matter what.
2. It’s okay if you think your art sucks. Heck, you’ll always think your art sucks. (Even really good artists do.) That just means you have something to improve on.
3. Do what you enjoy, but don’t forget to try new things and experiment. You only get good at what you practice, so it’s easy to get really good at one thing and stop doing anything else because you’re not as good at it. Never be afraid to suck!
The moment when you realize more than an hour after it’s posted and has a fuckton of notes that you messed something up just enough that no one else will notice, but it will bother you forever.
I am going to take a shower, and then I am going to stream, and I am going to animate something mindless and adorable because that is what I feel like doing today.
