Right now I’m convinced it doesn’t. I’m proving myself right about this by working hard and never going anywhere. I think i started catching early syndromes for carpal tunnel (small prickly feeling in arms and numbness/lack of control). Someone please convince me that working hard doing gets you anywhere. I feel like I’m missing something here, because it doesn’t seem like drawing and practicing does shit right now.
I believe you are working hard but are you working smart? Are you experimenting with you art and are you experimenting with your story telling?
It’s all well and good to punch a wall with all your night but have you considered walking around?
