I was lucky to discover my passion at a young age. If I could name one thing that makes me lose all track of time, it’s when I immerse myself in the world of my art. At first, I did drawing for fun, but I eventually realized my small hobby was more than just a pastime, I lived for it, it is part of my identity. When I was young, I immersed myself in the world of virtual fiction and fantasy through the introduction to the famous Pokémon franchise by Nintendo, and as a result this became the source of inspiration and drive for creating character concepts and expanding my technical skill and creativity through art.
Having not had a real art teacher for the majority of my childhood, I learned to draw through tutorials on the internet. I would draw for hours on end every day, hoping to one day be as competent as my idols. I didn’t realize at the time that I was teaching myself independence and self-directed learning skills- I didn’t have someone simply feed knowledge to me like was done in school. Instead, I went and looked for relevant information myself. This kind of self-development was key to the growth of myself as an artist- not only when I started out, but even now- and I am sure that it will continue to be key in my improvement in the future as well. The idea of knowing that I could make something that other people could see and appreciate, as well as being able to use a medium that could show my own enjoyment of certain subjects, were my primary motives for trying to learn how to draw, on top of the fact that I simply enjoyed doing it.
