One thing that drives me
There has been one kind of feedback that drives me all my life....
This probably applies only to art..... as I suck at other things:
If a third person tells me "You can't do this______" and I will be going all my way out to prove it wrong.
=_= it's sort of a strange way to inspire myself....
Of course I will learn why they say "you can't _______" (insert whatever) along the way, I will learn it, it doesn't mean I will give up easily.
So far my list of "you can't" I went up against are:
"Girls can't draw robot" - a stereotype I decided to undo in my life
"You can't use pencil with ink on manga pages" - for printing reasons, I found the balance after some trial and error.
"You shouldn't do anime while you are in US animation industry" - I am not changing my style and the passion for my stories for this, my style is this way, my story is this way; take it or leave it, but I do plan to expand my range of styles adopted, and I have confidence in my work.
"You shouldn't have more than one main character for a story" - only partially true, this is actually what my storyboard teacher told me, which I completely disagree.
"2D animation is dying" - blah, I love 2D, so I will die with it if I have to. I am doing my animations in 2D, 3D is a consideration though.
Of course... I still can't lift weight very well~ lol~
