Anyone else feel like they'll never make it in the industry but will do decently as an independent artist online? The art and animation industry seems so restrictive and judgemental anyways and it's been more open about its nepotism, control over the artist's vision, and blacklisting over the smallest things recently, the safest bet seems to be cultivating enough of a following to make a decent living on commissions and Patreon

What exactly differentiates western anime artist from Japanese ones? I want to know the different design elements that are emphasized in each style. Is it the shapes, the lines, the levels of abstraction, influences, flow, composition, etc. What are the nuances that you've seen that differentiates the two?

What is the logic behind wasting thousands of hours making awful worthless beginner drawings instead of trying to get it right the first time? If you were building a house you wouldn't just throw bricks into a pile over and over until after 10,000 hours somehow a house appeared. So why is there such an emphasis on mindless drawing until by magic you somehow improve? I'm starting to thing it is a clever gatekeeping ruse by established artists to keep out new competition by advising them to waste their time and hopefully they get bored and give up.

Should we listen to music or even podcasts when drawing?
Some old masters insist you need silence for your mind to completely focus on what you're doing.
