Taking comments

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 10:38 am

I guess the key challenge for taking comments/suggestions from others is being rationally open and yet emotionally close, to make positive improvements without negative feelings.

I installed and drew with Procreate last night.
In the background story, the founder said about their process of setting up Savage Interactive and developing Procreate:
“I grew up quite poor, so for me risking everything was a very natural thing. I thought, well, if it doesn’t pay off, I’ve been here before and I’ll be fine.”
(You might need to read that story from the App store as the web version might not be complete for some reason.)
