Like all artists that get good at what they do, I looked for another art form to strengthen my artistry, I chose the form of drawing.
Drawing has always been a shadow that I have never brought forward to the light in all my life and that is because of two reasons, one being that digital art and photos manipulation consumed all my time, reason two was that I was and still am scared of it.
I decided to jump in the sea even though I can’t really swim (draw) with that in mind I practice every single day for at least 2-3 hours at minimum, I try to draw three different styles of drawing, one dynamic, one portrait and one realistic, mostly because I want to break away from the traditional training methods, I want my muscle memory to work and learn my way and not by the ways of other artists, the reason being is that learning someone else’s method is a learning curve of its own and takes time that you could be putting in your own way, being comfortable in your training is key to keep going so take away from your favourite artists and what they do and build your own fundamental way of training.
So day in day out training 2-3 hours a day in hopes to one day be the best version of myself, I would never say ‘to be the best illustrator ever’ I do not believe that title exists, but we can reach high with amazing artists fuelling us such as Artgerm, Alvin Lee, Sam Spratt, Jim Lee and Andy Park just to name a few.
I made this post because many are swimming in the same sea and are afraid of the sharks, I am here to say don’t be, because with enough time and effort you will be one if those sharks.
