I met someone who’s a pencil master recently during the artist support post i did around two weeks ago.
We got around to chatting and she offered the “ask me if you ever need help in your drawing”.
Well, I couldn’t pass up the chance of taking advantage of it (yes, that’s the kind of person i am 😎) and the first thing this (i consider her a mentor) mentor did was to present me with a challenge.
Her: Hey, i have a challenge for you!!
Me: great!! What is it?
Her: Here it is!!!
*present me with a handdrawn perfect haired girl with fishes, plants, and octopus limbs going in and around it..(swipe pic to see)
Me: *shivers* ahh..coolies...😭😭
It took me long to figure out or even motivate myself to give this a go. I mean..seriously, it’s insane!
Like, great job gal! Gain one mentor, draw an octopus!!!
I did finally finished it tho.
you’re a great mentor, you challenged me right off the bat and that’s insane, but also exciting!
Thank you for never chasing me for this work.
I’m lucky to have met you!
Side note why i was attracted to her in the first place: she did not promote herself in the comment, she was simply wishing all the young artists good luck and she feels excited to see so many talented artists around.
She was so genuine, i went to check her out and was blown away by her work! And to find out she had such a great personality and so kind despite being so talented, ahh i just feel so lucky to meet someone like her.
I feel the most fortunate ever since i started ig. I have met endless wonderful people and so proud to call many of you my friends. Thank you to every single one of you who’s here with me ❤️❤️
