10000+ failures to get better. and it will never be 'good enough'.

im a slow learner, took me about 6 years. theres no magic and i dont have super powers (wish i did)
but if you keep at it, it WILL get better. (im also too stubborn to quit)

there were dozens of times i drew like 10 and gave up. but few days later, got back on it again. you might think its not getting better, your friends might think its a waste of time, and even i questioned myself "why the hell am i doing this crap?" but eventually i figured out what im doing, and looked up those golden age illustration artists and their understanding and mastery of the art, and started refining 1 step at a time. its not about having a 'style' but understanding why its drawn that way. once you understand it, you can do any style. when i started drawing, or interning at titmouse, everyone seemed to have a style, and I was nobody. I tried so hard to 'have a style', those 'finished' drawings were fundamentally wrong and awkward no matter how i tried. so I finally took the advice and practiced figure drawing. I actually got worse before i got better, too many things to think about. It was confusing, stressful, and really depressing. 

People often say this person or that person is so "talented", I dont like that word at all, it makes it seems skills are given, not honed. in truth, when you see good art, its because that person puts in so much effort before hand, and probably went through those frustrations to get to that point! if you cant deal with FAILURES, then how would you succeed?
even Kobe Bryant shot 4 air balls, but we all know what happened after that.

keep at it and everything will be alright...
