I have watched all of them!!
But...I can't agree with "done better than perfect" 100% D: Or, more accurate, I do agree when it's "progress over perfection" which is different.... I don't want this part to be overlooked If and only If it helps someone else <3
I agree it's useful to people that are hobbyists and begginners... Done better than perfect and produce a lot. It's super important and useful to get better fast
But it isn't 100% useful for people who want to make this a career right now. Like... you make a comic about guns and practice like a million guns is awesome. But then when publishing the comic, the gun should be as perfect as possible.
Both this people love comics. But If it succeeds or not... it's more important for non-hobbyists. (in the sense of stakes)
Like I agree with "progress over perfection" but focusing a lot on making it the most perfect possible for you on that progress step...
People sometimes overlook your advice (which is good advice) and just do. They even forget the progress part. Which is ok If they're starting out, they have a mental illness or something to take care of first. And then, once they're more ready, try to strive for perfection and at the same time protecting themselves
I mean, you do have to be smart and decide at which time you decide to focus on progress and others in perfectionism....
And definitely though making different backgrounds all the time for each panel was completely unnecessary (you have to decide what things are worth focusing on and which ones you don't)
And that's another thing to consider If you go traditional or digital, you do have to use shortcuts and hacks to go faster and kinda cheat your way through.
Also, probably it can be super useful to have the mindset level where you love your art no matter If it looks wrong or right. That's how anybody should love the progress of their art, even If they don't like it that much.
I know, took me a while to change my mindset and it's not like we will produce perfect work right away... But, we still have to strive for more if we want to stand out! Ofc this isn't for begginners, begginners I do think should focus more on progress... But for adults mostly or people a little more in the game.... We should do the best quality possible I think >.< When publishing at least
Also to not get so attached to your art. If it needs to be killed to do something better, do. And feel good because you're a capable artist.
I do feel deadlines are useful to not go super overboard with perfection. Just wanted to make sure this point is clear on the videos you shared (which are awesome tbh)
Skip to 6:30 if you want a different opinion, I think different from mine and yours, but helps consolidate the thinking
