Anonymous asked: This must be very entitled of me, but I follow you not only for your art but also for your attitude, which is the exact opposite of the attitude I have towards my own draws. And I am having a terrible art day, you know, the i-will-never-achieve-greatness-and-become-master-of-creepy-monsters-drawn-in-zbrush-and-photoshop day. Can you give me an encouraging battlecry or something, oh mighty Cheese? (Raccoon Anon)
First of all, thank you for your kind words! <3 Second of all, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT NEVER ACHIEVE GREATNESS??!? My friend, I know there will be days where you’ll feel down and say stuff like never being able to reach where you want to go, and that’s tough, dude! Those slumps are the worst!
But I want you to do me a favor.
Go ahead and look at yourself in the mirror. I mean it. Tell this gorgeous being in the reflection them these words:
"I am not where I want to be today, but I know where I want to be. Every step I take is a step towards that person I will become. I will be tested, it will be tough. But in time, I will climb above those obstacles and evolve into that person. This is but a chapter of my story to success."
The road is tough, but every challenge you face, whether you succeed or fail, is a step closer to making that reality your own.
