Bootcamp ID!

Some weeks ago I decided to join Rossdraws' Digital Art Bootcamp in hope to improve my art skills.

His Discord server is gigantic and there's always like a thousand people online all the time, but it is fun to be part of an art community and be inspired by everybody's work! I find particularly inspiring to see people who are more or less at my same level, it makes me feel less alone! For how scary communities can be, there is something indescribable about sharing the same journey with a lot of other people.

The downside of it is that it's hard for anyone with average skills to be noticed, but I'm glad to say it doesn't touch me too much at this stage. I am still able to make the people I care about happy with my art and that means everything to me for now!

On the other hand, some fellow students are intimidatingly good! Which also reminds me that for how much 'up there' someone's skills could be, there is no limit to improvement! Very successful artists can still develop, for how incredible that might sound.

Since I have drawn this, my OC/Sona (? never got the difference...) has undergone a redesign and I created another OC. I am hoping one day to be able to tell their stories, though it seems like such an unreachable dream so far...

As a short term goal I really want to take my skills to the next level. I am thrilled to see to which extent I will have improved by the end of the class!
