My #art career here is very new, but I've been chatting today about competency and skill gaps and not judging people by what they don't yet know.
So, for encouragement's sake:
I've not taken a formal art class since 8th grade.
I've never used Photoshop and have no idea how to stretch my own canvas.
I don't actually know what cel shading is?
But what I *do* know provides both passion and paid work. And I've learned that I can learn. That's all you need. Just sit down and start.
