EarthBound has been a favorite of mine since the 5th grade. Today I was enjoying my morning coffee and noticed if you let your coffee sit for too long, you’re gonna have Giygas in your cup… Which is probably not the best part of waking up. No one wants to learn their coffee will bring the end of the world (or at least OUR world). Guess that’s my fault for buying my coffee from the Department Store Spook.
Submitted this design… hopefully it will be available for wearing :)
Step 01 : Shut up and draw.
- Don’t whine about other artists being better, more popular, etc etc. Don’t whine about not being good enough. Don’t worry about popularity or money or any of that shit. They’re awesome, but wont help you draw any better. (If you enjoy what you’re drawing and do it well odds are good they’ll happen on their own.) Don’t fall victim to distractions and “easy outs” or “I don’t feel it” moods. Take a break, walk around, stretch, get a drink, clear your head, then shut up and draw.
Step 02 : Never stop. Ever.
- Do it every day. Practice constantly. Make it your obsession. Draw what you see, what you know, what you like. Try new techniques. Look at how artists you like do things, emulate it, then twist it into your own version. Make sure your style is yours and not a carbon copy of someone else. Carry a sketchbook with you to work, school, everywhere. Draw when you wake up. Draw when you’re tired. Draw when you’re bored. Want to play a video games? Draw instead. Draw when you should be doing something else. Draw. Draw. Draw. Never stop. Ever.
Do that for a few years and you’re golden. There is no trick or magic spell that can make you draw exactly like you want right now. Artists are like Saiyans, every fight makes them stronger. Every picture makes us better.
Ducky actually gave me this speech awhile ago, and it helped me a shit ton.
A simple introduction to my blog. Enjoy
