I thought for my first video of 2019 it would be a good ideea to look back on my entire journey as a digital artist and share some tips for beginners on how to get started in animation, or in digital art, what lessons I had to learn that might be useful to others in the same position I was several years ago.

    • I really really love to draw, but I'm not good at it. Then I watched this in 2020, encourages me to excercise this. And same, due to this pandemic, our financial is not that high. So thanks a lot. This is the very first video I ever watched in your channel and I liked it, thank you very much. You deserve a sub :)

  • This definitely explains my life. You see I was 14 and i still don't got wacom or any drawing tablets. But that's ok! For now I am also saving money from whenever my aunt command me to encode her files. Every time i do it i earn $2-$5, small amount but that really helps! I am almost there to purchase my very first drawing tablet and I am 15 now!💕 After i bought it, I'll ask my mother to create Paypal account and i'll start my fiverr account as soon as I learnt what my styles is!

  • This is a great video. I've always drawn on pencil and paper since around the age of 4 I believe. I love drawing and sometimes have a hard time changing my style. I have been watching a lot of fan animations recently and have always wanted to learn digital animation so I could make my own cool stuff! After seeing your video, I'm going to save up for a Wacom Intuos Graphics Drawing Tablet of my own and start practicing animations thank you for sharing your story! 😁
