"Very few possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort.
If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass."
Wait for an inspiration
The mood is just not right today. Sure, you could pick up a pencil, sit down and push yourself to practice but the result would probably end up in a trash can. Waste of time, waste of material. Besides, the guy that commissioned you two months ago found a professional for the work already.
Expect the success to happen quickly
A year or two, tops, that's all it takes to build a reputation. Being an artist isn't a job like any other, therefore you don't need to work on it every day. No need for
PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

I absolutely despise him.
No joke. I swear I'm going to end up slamming that motherfucker's face into the fucking wall as hard as I fucking can. I hate him that much. I've only been nice to him twice out of the entire school year. Twice. I'm nicer to rocks than I am to him. Hell, I'm nicer to cockroaches! :iconcockroachplz:
Also, my graphic design class thinks I'm satanist. :iconevilplz:
Why? Because on my skateboard design I did a fallen angel. And since fallen angels were condemned by God because they sided with Satan, I decided to put a glowing upside down cross on her chest. And I wasn't thinking religiously or anything like that. I just thought that it would fit since she was a fallen...It didn't end well. :iconsweatdropplz:

Invisible ChildrenMake him known, make him famous!Invisible Children in Personal More Like This
Joseph Kony has spent 20 years too long kidnapping young children, forcing them to kill and turning them into sex slaves. 2012 is the year we make him famous, not to celebrate him, but to arrest him. His inhuman behavior has gone unnoticed and uncared for by most of the world for too long! He has taken over 30,000 innocent lives, and we wont let him take one more.
Join me and Innvisible Children to help make Kony known word wide and help aid his arrest. Tell everyone on facebook about what he's done. Share with everyone on deviantART through a journal on who he is and how we as a connected world can help. Everyone in this world is affected by events, even if these events are an ocean away.
Some of you may not know who Joseph Kony is or what Innvisible Children is. I hadn't until a little while ago. Please watch this wonderfully put together vi
MJA078: So, I Got Censored Today...Shortly after a conversation I had with another deviant regarding how the new format for journals (the ability to favourite and collect, and so on) did or did not affect DeviantART's generally liberal attitude towards their content, I got two notes today from the Administration. At first, I thought they were about other deviations that I'd reported getting taken down (or the violator in question deactivating their account, thus auto-generating the message, or something similar), only to find that they were referring to items in my own gallery.MJA078: So, I Got Censored Today... in Personal More Like This
This was just after I posted the Cipher series, so logic dictated it had something to do with those, prompting questions such as, "Who reported those, and for what? Better question, who agreed with them higher up the ziggurat?" A few weeks earlier, on YouTube, I'd been talking to someone about the problem of false flaggers, but I didn't think that was the case here; DeviantART admins, for all the flak I give a select few of them for moments of in

Just a Thought: Beware of ArtistsQueen Victoria of England once said, "Beware of artists they mix with all classes of society and are therefore most dangerous "Just a Thought: Beware of Artists in Personal More Like This
Today, Art is easily dismissed by society, seeing it as a past time for those who are rich enough to have time. Which is why our parents' initial reaction for our desire to become professional artists was of doubt or utter refusal. Only a few truly know how much Art can touch, change, and affect anything it pleases.
That is why artists are feared.
