Adrenalin Shot: Work Hard Brah!
So you can have the best art schooling in the world? You study under the best teachers? Watch the most inspiring tutorial videos?
That’s good…but if you are unwilling to dedicate time and effort over and above what is “required”, or place the importance of constant practice above watching TV or playing video games or getting drunk with friends…then you’ll never make it in the commercial art field.
For every moment you decide to goof off, there are thousands of others who are practicing and getting better and growing and they are your competition for a very very very small pool of jobs and assignments. Do you like competition? You’d better.
Push past your limits.
