    You mean I need to have a life to make interesting draws?

    I like the point about just doing instead of thinking too much on it. Looking back, i realize that most of my best and/or favorites were because i just did something then built from that.

    I'm so glad that I don't care about marketing myself, because I think focusing on this much stuff would just absolutely destroy any enjoyment I would get out of the hobby, whatsoever.

    I wouldn't want to touch art with a stick, with my eyes closed.

    I struggle with 2 a lot. I find myself wanting to draw what people want to see vs. what I want to draw sometimes, but starting to rediscover what I like and what I want. It might bend more towards the horror / darker / more morbid side, but that's more me than cutesy things, which is why 6 is also harming me.

    This was really insightful. I've been really trying to rediscover 'myself' and whatnot. A few others I cannot remedy due to my living situation, but I'll try

    No. They just didn't outright say it. Quite a few things apply to fanart

    Jeez, some of these really got me thinking. A good eye opener though, especially some of the ones labeled near the end. Thank you for this!
