My name is Zach, I'm okay with nicknames related to my name/username though. I'm agender, they/them preferred, he/him is okay though. I mostly reblog pokemon and stuff from other video games, as well as animals (mostly rabbits), art/tutorials/inspiration from other people as well as some of my own art from my art blog. Furry art too, so keep that in mind. Nothing NSFW here (though possibly suggestive? It's pretty rare if I do). I tend to keep tags light, so if you feel like I need to tag anything, please ask!
yes it is my birthday thank you all!!! (sorry I won’t reply to these messages, but they’re all very much appreciated!)
I know it’s overdone, but it’s true that it’s just practice. People say that all the time though, and don’t always say what to practice though. Two important things to get out of the way first though: age is not a factor, and neither is taking classes. I started early and took classes, and yet there are people just as old as me who started later and are self taught, and I think before giving the “actual advice” this is important for everyone to know, and this applies to lots of talents, that you can start at any time, and learn in any way. The most important advice I’ve been given is not practice or even what to practice but HOW to practice. I really cannot sum it up because even if I wrote an entire essay I’d just be scratching the surface, but I’ll try to think of the most important things I’ve learned:
I swear I could come up with at least 20 more bullet points, but that’s the best I can come up with for now. I’m sure there are much more comprehensive explanations from other sources, so go ahead and look into more advice from others if you want to do more. I am in no way the best source or the only source of information, so basically just know that people will give you a whole lot more information, some of it may even be conflicting, but you can find what works best for you eventually. I know this is kind of a lot, but like I said, this is still just scratching the surface. Don’t let hearing that intimidate you though, if you want to get better, you can do it.
Thanks for asking, I’m sure a few other people could use this info too, even though I still consider myself under qualified to be giving advice like this..
TL;DR: read the first sentence or two on the bullet points basically.
