“Nice drawing but not enough for drawing comic, one like for trying”
At these time I was once again reminded that Ignorance is such a bliss. Yeah I might not draw well enough for doing comic but I do not just TRY I invest my soul into every piece of it. You never know how hard it is to make a comic because you never try, but once you do you will know its not something easy. Then again, nothing in life is easy until you actually get involved with it, people make it seem easy because they have experience.
I got told like this every single time I do comic, from the minute I start drawing comic again. “You’re no good” “Your style is not traditional” “Your drawing suck you cant draw comic” “Go back learn to draw before actually do it”. One time an editor actually told me that I should just make content and stop drawing. Of course I told them to kiss my ass. That’s why I make a resolve to myself that I will draw for me first before for anyone else, comic is something incredibly personal to me and if I got fans, I thanks you with all my heart. But even if I got none, I will still draw because the process is already a reward to me.
I actually quited once. It was 8 years ago, when I was told by so many that I cant draw at all. I stopped trying, and acted like everyone else advice me to do “go get a real job”. I did. If it wasnt for last year something came up and my life was the mess you probably wont have Zoe Cam today because I was too busy making “actual money” like they said. And when I drew again, I know that this is the love of my life. Its a passion that I long for. I was foolish, I should never change it. Not for anyone. Not for anything.
I know that, but sometimes these comments still sting me like an annoying bees.
