“In the media sea of this generation, we become so used to wanting something and as long as we have the money, we can get it right away. There's so many tutorials out there that show you simple techniques we all do to our art to make it look a little bit better or cooler to the average person. But these kinds of tricks are only surface level and only truly work well with a good understanding of the fundamentals of art like structure, color, light, composition, etc. And the fundamentals of art don't come easily. It takes a lot of patience.”
