Devoting yourself to a hobby, passion, or calling is a pretty hard thing to do. A lot of factors limit one’s success. Some might say that it all comes down to time and effort, but the reality of life is that if you’re struggling to make ends meet or put food on the table, You probably don’t have much time. Likewise, you can be pretty successful, but managing your business can leave you with little time to enjoy a hobby or calling. More leeway is given to the latter. Why? Who knows. But when one thinks of busy people, PewDiePie would fit that bill. After all, most of us can’t find 5 minutes to water the dying plant on our windowsill. So, if you’re at the helm of a YouTube channel with millions of subscribers, It’s safe to say you don’t have much free time. Yet, the YouTube star recently reminded his followers of his devotion to all things weeb by participating in a protracted drawing challenge. PewDiePie‘s ‘I Drew Every Day for 100 Days!’ video drew admiration from the streamer’s fans as it quickly trended on both X and YouTube.
Through a 15-minute video, PewDiePie shows us how, over 100 days, he dedicated himself to one of the most noble art forms, drawing waifus. Consistency and practice are a must when one wishes to excel at something. PewDiePie drove that home by highlighting the importance of composition and anatomy. Likewise, the YouTube streamer practices with different drawing materials. Among the more recognizable drawings, several characters from Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man (Power, Makima, and Kobeni) are featured. PewDiePie even mentions that on the 100th day, he wanted to draw them alongside his fans because he “loves the characters and thinks they’re so fun to draw.”
In a scene where he’s drawing Chainsaw Man waifus, he mentions that he feels his work is never as good as the material he is referencing. If you’re talking to an artist and they say the opposite, those bast***s are like their name is Ai Hayasaka. A beautiful little nod to the creative process is when he mentions that he feels proud looking back at his work and comparing it with recent ones and seeing the improvement. It’s the little things that matter. He even recollects how, when he started frequenting the gym, his mindset was that “I have to keep going,” and that mentality is the most important thing in drawing as well.
