(upbeat music) - [Jason] Painting is a scary thing, and to this day, I still struggle with every painting, and it's still hard. Some people might think it's obvious. Oh, you just draw that 'cause it's so exaggerated, you just draw it. The truth is, from my perspective, that it makes it a little bit more of a challenge because that can distract you from capturing the true likeness. My whole belief is always, basically, how do you know your wings are gonna work unless you jump off the cliff? You gotta believe that you can do it, that you can fly.
Otherwise, you're never gonna know. (upbeat music)
