I found this on Pinterest, don't remember where, sorry. I love this I see it as OUR drawings see US as their creator (or course because we drew them) but we are like their parents we are their mother or/and father we made them and I don't know about yall but I love EVERY SINGLE drawing I do even if some of them turn out better than others. you're always supposed to love your drawings <3 <3
when I first started to love drawing was when I knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life it was when I was in the 7th grade (I never had art class growing up my teachers had to replace my art class with speech :'( and I hated that but I couldn't do anything about it, imagine having speech class for 9 years) in the 7th grade I finally got the class that I really cared about art my teacher was Mrs. Denson she was the best I would stay after school everyday to help her clean up her classroom even if it meant I would miss the bus, I told her how much I loved drawing and told her I never had art class growing up but one summer I went to a art camp about 30 mins from house for 4 weeks during the summer, and I told her that I couldn't draw anything that looked real enough she told me it doesn't have to look real to be perfect, then she handed me a book on how to draw manga characters and she said I think you can learn allot from this and gave me a hug and she walked away I took it home and started reading and every single day I would practice drawing what I had read in the book and everyone would complement me on how good they looked they started to ask me if I could teach them to draw like me I told them I didn't know how. One day after school Mrs. Denson told me one last thing "Jazmyn when you're done with your drawings you always have to love them no matter what they turn out like, if some are better then others you still need to love them! you learn from mistakes, you might mess up on your drawings but the more you practice the better you will get"
I haven't seen Mrs. Denson in almost 6 years if it wasn't for her I wouldn't of loved manga drawings during that year I also read my first manga 'Black Bird' and watched my first anime 'Sword Art Online' and 'Bleach' if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be an Otaku, crazy isnt it, a 7th grade teacher turned a 12yr old into an Otaku and I'm pretty sure if I didn't find the love I have for drawing I'd probably still be struggling with allot, probably mostly my depression every time I'm sad I just draw a new charter, or write a story and draw characters to go with it l, or read a new manga or my favorite manga, or even watch a anime..
Guys there are some really good people out there, it's hard to find them and sometimes you might think that they dont exist but they're there trust me because i found one and i am one!!!
And please promise me one thing, ONE thing, never I mean NEVER give up on your drawings..
Like Mrs. Denson said you learn from your mistakes and you will always get better if you keep practicing...
