Dedicating yourself to a hobby, passion or job is quite difficult to do. Many factors limit a person’s success. Some people may say it all comes down to time and effort, but the reality of life is that if you’re struggling to make a living or put food on the table, you probably don’t have much time. Likewise, you may be quite successful, but managing your business may leave you with little time to enjoy your hobbies or work. More time is given to the latter. Why? Who knows. But when thinking about busy people, PewDiePie will fit the bill. After all, most of us can’t find 5 minutes to water the dying plant on the windowsill. So if you’re running a YouTube channel with millions of subscribers, it’s safe to say you don’t have a lot of free time. However, the YouTube star recently reminded his followers of his dedication to everything by participating in an extended drawing challenge. ‘I drew every day for 100 days’ by PewDiePie! the video garnered admiration from the streamer’s fans as it quickly trended on both X and YouTube.
Through a 15-minute video, PewDiePie shows us that for more than 100 days, he devoted himself to one of the noblest forms of art, drawing waifus. Consistency and practice are essential when one wishes to excel at something. PewDiePie did just that by emphasizing the importance of composition and anatomy. Likewise, YouTube streamers practice with different drawing mediums. Among the more recognizable drawings, several of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man characters (Power, Makima, and Kobeni) are featured. PewDiePie even mentioned that on the 100th day, he wanted to draw them with his fans because he “loves the characters and thinks drawing them is fun.”
In a scene where he draws Chainsaw Man’s 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, that bastard is like Ai Hayasaka. A nice little nod to the creative process is when he mentions that he feels proud when he looks back at his work and compares it to recent works and sees the progress. It’s the little things that matter. He even recalls when he started going to the gym regularly, his mindset was “I have to keep going” and that mentality is also the most important thing in drawing.
