"I’m self-educated, so everything I learned came from the internet. I’ve spent hours observing accelerated videos from talented people making incredible works, reading tutorials translated from German or Russian, looking at pictures magnified 300% to see all the details. I’m not one of those super talented guys who naturally draws well and becomes CG artist for Pixar, then take a guitar say “hey, that’s really simple” and becomes a rockstar. I’m the guy who works 18 hours a day redoing the same picture 10 times before I start to feel satisfied. So my primary advice that I can give is “find your way, trust in yourself, and work fully—then work harder”. That may not sound very sexy, but it’s the truth, and if you really want to be a known and respected creator then this should not scare you.”
