I'm writing this because there seems to be this misconception that artists have to be able to create everything just out of their head. And some can! Because they've been practicing for years. How? Be *using reference*, yes!
You can hone your observation skill and look reeeal closely how things work. It's a wonderful exercise you can do whenever you want.
I wish I had friends who had OCs that weren't D&D OCs :'/ Like, I'm happy to talk about my OCs with other people, and to hear about other people's OCs, but it's kind of awkward swapping OC stories when their OCs are all Paladin Tieflings and whatnot, and mine are all just...college kids with mommy issues.
A socially anxious shut-in that draws to be happy. Still trying to work myself out.
