and for creating art

Great art :3 but how do I reach that level? I started drawing cartoons a bit more but I'm worried I can't doodle good (╥﹏╥)

Hey thank you! I’m stoked you like my stuff. :)
I have got a few notes saying things like this. Some of them have more self deprecation than others but the message is the same for the most part.

Art is not a competition guys. You are not bad at this!
I don’t know why you are being so hard on yourselves. Your ideas are awesome. YOU are unique and individual. Therefore, so is your work and that’s what makes it great. Down to your smallest silliest doodles.

Think about that when you are making art. Whenever you are drawing/painting/making that is you reveling in expression. This is you being uniquely YOU. Learn to love that. The more you love to do something the more you do it. The more you do it the more you improve.
I have practiced a lot and I have studied a lot. I do both because it is fun for me. I just really love painting. You are looking at what hundreds(thousands?) of pictures of practice over the span of years does to someone. I am not new to this and I am still very far from where I want to be. Just the same as you.
No matter what people think this stuff is not a natural occurrence. Literally anyone can do what I do. Anyone can get to this point and go way past it. It is just time and willingness to put fourth the effort.
Studying helps. References help. The internet has got you covered on that. Talking down about yourself to take away your own motivation does not help.

Just try your hardest when drawing and remember try new things. Don’t have a comfort zone when it comes to ability. Stop worrying about how it’s going to look and just try it.
It’s not going to look how you want in the beginning. Hell, it’s not going to look how you want 6 years down the line either but other people won’t know that.
Your doodles are good. Trust me when I say your doodles are good. You are just scratching the surface. If you keep it up every day you will be drawing in ways you would never believe you could in no time.

Peanuts Concept Art-Early exploration for the Aerodrome Valley. Before we get into the set and dive deep into the details, we have a period of time (sometimes very short) to develop ideas and the general look. In this case, I pushed the valley really grand to contrast the flat Charlie Brown World. This was my favorite part of the show. It was so much fun! On a side note, I am pursuing a personal project on Patreon and you can get awesome rewards in return for your support! I’m giving away tutorials, reviews and even a mentorship!

[Public] Toning a Manga page with pen hatching PV
Here is a part of a patron-only process video. Full video is a slower, 49 min of toning the whole page with a list of the tools used at the end.

Here is a WIP shot of how a page looks before (bottom part) and after (top part) hatching.

A process video of sketching of the page from scratch is also available for patrons.
