I remember hearing a Disney cartoonist give a talk about his time drawing for Disney. He was a good artist, but when he got to Disney they retrained him to draw “the Disney way”.
After I thought about this for a bit, it made sense. I mean all the Disney movies need to look like Disney movies, so Disney actually changed the way this great artist drew. Now, he drew Disney things amazingly well! He now went around teaching kids how to draw the characters from Disney movies step-by-step. As an artist, this was one of the most depressing things I had ever heard.
Cool Things to Draw is not about copying. It is about being you, letting your personality come out of your drawings, even if they are ugly. Some of my favorite artists are not great artist, but their art is fun to look at. It has a life to it. It is them. It is drawing with personality.
I have some news for you. No one cares how well you draw a Disney character even if it looks perfect. What will change the world is you creating original things that are all your own.
I am in the process of doing just that right now. I have three characters that have come to life. This is the coolest stage of drawing cool things. Your characters actually come alive. You start to draw because you want to find out what the characters do. I am positive I have a character that will change the world. I can’t wait to release him.
