Just my 2 cents. Whatever reason you have, you don’t owe people anything. Just do your magic and be happy.

Many people have come to me saying “Oh, because you went to Art School and took Art Classes your a great artist.” “The only reason your a good artist is because someone taught you.” and “Yeah, but you went to Art Classes - real artists are self taught.”
What do you people actually think happens in Art Classes? The teacher divulges the secrets of the universe and instantly you become the best artist there ever was?
The only thing that has ever happened in an Art Class is that the teacher gives us materials - a subject - and access to constant critique and pointers (if the teacher is actually competent and not an asshole), the same pointers you would get on the internet from someone who probably knows what they are doing. Art classes only give you the means to improve and draw.
Just because someone doesn’t take art classes doesn’t mean they aren’t going to be amazing and just because someone does take them doesn’t mean they are going to be amazing.
