dont kid yourself, life owes you nothing if you dont put in the self study/work required to get anything from it. teachers, colleagues alike, cant spoon feed your ass every fucking hour of your life.
PIANO CAPSULE Answer:
AAAAAH is those one of those? hate mail? aggressive clash of opinions? i’ve always wanted to get some! AH, SO YOUTHFUL!
but i agree completely. no one can learn for you, i don’t think i’ve ever said otherwise. on the other hand, it’s a matter of quality & quantity of information. in other words, environment is very important too.
i make a point to never stress about hard work, especially on tumblr, because i am sick and tired of artists getting questions like “how can i improve” and their answer is always “well, YOU GOTTA WORK WORK WORK.” everyone is expecting that, everyone inherently knows that, so let’s just put it aside.
I think recognizing that there are other forces that also influence your improvement is important because then you can identify your needs and put yourself in a position with more chances - and that’s still hard work (just as how you’d move to a city with more job opportunities in your field. it doesn’t mean you’re being spoon fed a job HAHA)
