Key Takeaways

“Keep drawing, just keep drawing, don’t listen to the haters. I believe in you!”

  • Amber finds motivation in making art because it just makes her happy
  • Amber is very serious about learning. When she can’t do something, she gets so annoyed with it that she can’t sleep and she studies it until she gets it right!
  • Amber says that the most important thing when creating stories are the feelings and emotions, reasons, basically to make the audience feel something. It’s all about detailed characters that can almost come out real
  • Amber recommends that you put your work out there. She has always found work by putting her work out there, so just be out there.
