The next step.Improving is about not giving up.The next step.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I feel that art is overwhelming, its something so immense, so abstract, so godly that getting remotely close to actually mastering any of its endless nuances feels unobtainable.
At a certain degree it is, but what i have been noticing for the past ...humm... almost two years now... is that, the only way you can climb the next step in this endless staircase is not to give up while you are about to fall from the step you are into.
You are drawing something, and it feels wrong, it feels bad, and you erase it, you draw it again, and it looks even worse and you twist it, bend it, erase it, do it again, then its really horrible, and lastly you say: screw this, i give up, its over, no point because i cant do it.
And you give up on the entire piece, and all the effort, all the struggle, the horror was in vain, went down the drain.
When you are about to do this, don't.
Make it work, whatever it takes, eventually you WILL make it work! And then, oh, it feels gre

It's really relevant to me right now, because suddenly people have been asking me about my canvases and cut outs... like people I know. I think it's because I posted this picture on my facebook. (which I hardly ever do because I'm like invisible with my friends and family when it comes to my art.)
How it looks in my room BTW: http://ceshira.tumblr.com/post/40891503944/if-youre-wondering-why-ed-edd-n-eddy-didnt-make
And what the guy says in the video is true. People expect you to do free work because "Hell, it will only take you a few minutes."
Well no it doesn't. For one thing, I take my sweet ass time because I worry that if it looks bad, I'll see how limited my abilities really are. AND THEN MY FAMILY WILL CRITICIZE ME SAYING "SHE QUIT BEING A NURSE FOR THIS? PSSSHHHH" (I have some issues with family's judge-y eyes.) So yes, I think the emotional stress I would have

You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?

You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.

How to cope with Art BlocksAlmost every single artist has at one point or the other in their life lost motivation, inspiration or even both and without the knowledge of how to deal with what we then call an Art Block, it can take a long time to overcome this lack of artistic drive. A time that might otherwise be used for further improvement and personal artistic growth.How to cope with Art Blocks2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So today I would like to give you a few tips on how to defeat an art block. There is no definite guarantee to either of them, as everybody experiences their blocking differently but maybe you can at least find small suggestions that will eventually help.
Inspiration is literally everywhere, you just need to open your eyes to see it.
We can find inspiration through:
Letting your favourite books, movies, series or games inspire you is always one of the most obvious ways. Fan Art is a good way to retrieve inspiration because most of all y

We have a ton of these deviantART coasters laying around HQ so they must have found them. We originally made them for originaldrinkanddraw and I'm so glad they found them! I'm going to have to get more just in case the elves come again!

Race to the bottom: probably not your best betCross-posted from Tumblr.Race to the bottom: probably not your best bet6 months ago in Personal More Like This
PSA: If you can't sell your art at minimum wage, you're probably gonna have a hard time selling it for any less, as well. :T Cheaper does not always mean more enticing. In fact, it can be a real turn off to potential buyers who either consciously or subconsciously equate monetary price to intrinsic value and quality. (If you want to price your art cheaply, frame it as a 'sale' off the 'original price'. The reception will generally be much better than simply pricing your work cheaply from the get-go. [See also: the infamous JC Penny fiasco])
If you're selling your art for peanuts and STILL have a hard time making sales, the harsh reality comes down to you possibly needing to do one or both of the following:
-Take some time to improve your craft/skillsets. You do not need post secondary school for this (in fact, there are plenty of BFA owners who appear to h

On a literal level, it's a calendar of my life, the large squares being
years, the smaller ones months and the dots days. They're color coded

of hope towards me, reminding me that I spent a great deal of time
living without this person just fine, and so on and so forth. Philliewig
