Dad "What do you want to when you become older"
Me(10 year old) "I want to be a comic drawer or atleast something with drawing"
Dad "You can't make money from drawing"
Me(10 year old) "oww....ok"
Strange that sometimes when you're young one or two sentences can change you're life, or atleast nudge you down a different path.
Maybe I did'nt have the real drive or will to really go for it. But I knew money was important in life and I knew it was needed to survive.
Anyway I do know it's the one thing that my dad said I remember, that always resounded deep inside me.
So I always drawed loads when I was little and then silly me stopped when my dad told me that. I did occasionally draw things but nothing of real note or any worth.
And well the last few years I was always on Deviantart admiring and enjoying everything people made.
Then it hit me I want to draw and I want to learn it. Cause if I don't do it now I will never do it and be poorer for it.
So I got myself a teacher, butt load of paper all pens and pencil/ aquarel paints an Intuos4 Large and everything else and started drawing.
Been busy for about 1 month now collecting everything I needed to actually feel ready to start my process of learning and maybe even becoming an actual artist.
I don't want to make money from my drawings but I want to add something to the great pool of artistic things that swarm around.
I've always had a dream to make my own webcomic the story is in my head and fully worked out on paper. Funny since It's a story that came to be in the last 10 years and slowly grew bigger and more complex due to all the inspired work and ideas of others. So maybe one day when I feel ready it will slowly be a realization.
I read loads of Manga I love Anime, so it's that style I will be focusing on the most.
So for now Thanks for reading it and Thanks for the advice/help/support I might recieve in the future.
