The best thing you can do with budding artists is show them the tricks that you use but don’t peddle it like it’s the correct way. Leave it open for people to experiment.
The only wrong way is when you steal the work or designs of another and claim it as your own. That’s about it.
You do whatever you want. That’s the point of art, it’s a completely open and free-to-manipulate medium where you can get everything from doodles to illustrations, stories to jokes, and more out for others to digest.
To tell people “you have to do X before you can Y” shows a lack of knowledge. You can do B before A, G after W, you can do anything you fucking please.
Welcome to art. It’s huge and scary and you will never ever stop learning.

The problem with being introverted is that there is no polite way to say “I love you, but I’m tired of being with you right now.”
This post makes me so sad because I remember when my husband felt he couldn’t say this to me. Because society had pounded it into his head so thoroughly that it ‘wasn’t polite to ask for alone time’ that he felt he wasn’t allowed to. And he was SO MISERABLE. I, being an extrovert myself, had no idea. It wasn’t until, after lots of trial and error and lots of fighting and crying that we finally figured it out.
Saying ‘I love you, but I’m tired of being around people right now. I need time to recharge.’ is NOT IMPOLITE. If someone you say it to thinks it is? Then they need to learn what being introverted means. You can try to help them understand that you need to recharge your batteries. If they refuse to accept it… well, then, you’re never going to work anyways. Because you should NEVER sacrifice your mental health just to keep from hurting someone else’s feelings.
You can ask for alone time politely. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s not being mean. It’s not being rude. Explain that you need time to recharge. That you just need to be alone with yourself for a while. It’s so important. And the people who truly love you in return will learn and adapt as much as you do.
