Don’t draw anime

Don’t do it. Don’t even think about it.

It’s easy enough to be enamored with some type of art style as a kid and try to emulate it. But don’t let it lock you down.

Draw what feels good. Don’t try to draw your favorite cartoon character and get discouraged when it doesn’t look the way that you planned.

The point is: draw whatever you want, but make sure that at some point you aren’t completely focused on trying to draw a certain way.

The best cartoons, movies, anime, manga, art, come from people who draw from the heart, from an honest place.
