It Makes Me Mad

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 25, 2015, 9:45 AM


Y'know, it always makes me mad when people tell me they wish they could draw. As if I have some magical ability to just create pictures and didn't have to work at it for years to get to the point where I am today.
I was working today, and being a Sunday morning, there weren't a lot of customers out and about yet, so I had quite a bit of time. There are always some bits of receipt paper floating around, so I figured I'd doodle a bit. One of my co-workers came in about an hour later and I'd filled up most of the paper  with drawings. The first thing he says to me?

"I wish I could draw."

I sure wish I could draw too. Because you know what? Six years of actively trying to improve my drawing ability and I'm still not satisfied. I want to be better. But instead of just sitting around and wishing I could draw, I actually do it. Because wouldn't you know it, drawing is the only way to get better at drawing. Who'd've guessed it!

I feel as though the people who tell me they wish they could draw, must not actually want to be able to draw. Why else would they sit around instead of trying.
No one starts out a perfect artist. Everyone has their own starting point and improves at their own pace, and that's okay. As long as you're trying, you will get better. Experiment.
Draw what you want to draw.
And you're going to get better.

Improvement doesn't just happen over night. Even though I'm mostly self-taught, I've still taken several art classes at school, and every single art teacher I've had said that if you want to get better, draw everyday. It doesn't matter what you draw, how you draw it, just draw. Because the act of moving that pencil across the paper, or that pen across the tablet, or that mouse across the desk, is going to make you more confident in what you're doing, and you'll start to see what you were doing wrong in the past and try to do it differently.

So I really wish people would stop complaining to me about how they can't draw. Because they won't get my sympathy, I've worked hard to get here.

Ha ha, I really hate to delete my old bio after having it for so long, but it's just not me anymore. That was the 15 year old me, but I'm 19 now and my interests have changed since then. I hope my friends won't be offended by not being on my page anymore, but it was time for the old info to go.

Anyway...
I currently live in Tennessee, and have for my whole life. I'm currently in a relationship. Drawing was one of my favorite things when I was little and I was good at it, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I started to get serious about it. I got my start drawing Sonic, and while I'll still draw it from time to time, I've largely moved on and it no longer interests me. Nowadays, my main interests are The Violinist of Hameln, Homestuck, Slayers, Dragon Quest, The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Digimon, and various other manga, anime, and games. Basically, if you want to know if I like something, just ask and I'll be glad to look into it if I've never heard of it before.
I try to draw something everyday, and I currently am working on a comic. Unfortunately, Renascentia is on hiatus because I no longer have a program which I can use to insert text. I will begin work again as soon as possible. Until then, I'm sure to be drawing plenty of fan art or OCs, and you never really know what I'll draw next.

As soon as I possibly can, I would like to start taking commissions for actual money, so I can commission pupukachoo to make a Hamel plush.
Speaking of pupukachoo, she is currently my favorite artist and her work is really amazing, you should totally check her out.
