I'm an autistic artist with a variety of skills. Primarily I like to illustrate and animate, but I also can design, program, write... close to a jack-of-all trades!
My skills are completely self taught, starting out since 2010 at the ripe age of 8 with my first deviantArt account. It introduced me to the world of the internet, a place to share works and learn so much. It's been wonderful seeing the webspace grow and change, and changing me as well.

Long story short, I found out you could do something and googled tutorials. I watched YouTube videos, asked people I knew for help, and learned on my own. For the most part, I think it's one of the best ways to learn-- through a hands-on experience! At least, it's one of the best for me. I definitely would have benefited from some classes.
If you have a deep enough interest for something, research it and figure out how to do it! It's how I learned about a lot of my own passions.
Unironically I don't have a good answer for this, because most of the time it's either:
So I guess my answer truthfully boils down to just... don't force it to happen? Obviously, if you have a goal in mind, work towards it, but don't do something with the intent of "I'll be able to do [x] if I do this!" because you'll set yourself up for failure. Just be a funny, likeable person and you'll probably get somewhere eventually. Unfortunately, it kind of comes down to luck.
You can usually... commission me... it's not free, but you can do that...
this is the worst kind of question to ask just TREAT ME LIKE A NORMAL PERSON!!!
