Went to art school and finished a degree in animation. Ended up still kinda shit at drawing but animations were clean and movement was smooth. I always animated these little doodle-like characters that covered up my lack of talent. Stopped drawing for 2 years cuz disheartened that I wasnt "good" at drawing yet. Pretty much went like>sit down to draw>have idea of what I want>cant draw it how I want it to look>get mad and stop
x100 until i quit cold turkey
Someone pointed out to me that my psychology is all fucked up after I told them I was a "gifted" kid. They said I never learned how to work hard at something and deal with failure, which kinda sucks.
Yesterday was the first time I drew anything since september 2017 and i'm kinda hoping i'll never need to type out "first time i drew since ..." ever again.
