Quick things to improve your art
Hi everyone, today I will talk about art, how to improve your art, what I think and what I do.
I've heard someone said, when people start to learn something, they will need at least 10000 hours to master , or at least get used to it. But if you know how to learn it in the right way and efficiently , you will save a lot of time and get better in no time.
I must say I'm not a master or anything, and I'm still learning to improve myself. I've never enrolled any digital painting class and no one taught me but myself. Here are how I do things
References photography, analyze colors and light
When becoming an artist or illustrator you need to have this habit of gathering references images for your works. Categorize and separate them into folders (exp like Master Paintings, costume design, textures ,artworks of artist u like, etc...).
What you learn from the old Master painting? Sophisticated ways to depict shape, light and texture.
And what you learn from photography?

The Danger of Urgency
Journal time!! I apologize for the length of this post, but I think it's important for artists, especially newer artists, to consider. Hopefully it will be of some use to you in your artistic journey. :)
SO... ConceptArt has been sending out emails to promo their study programs with little snippets of advice, some of them are good but one of them that came the other day really irks me. The first thing on their list is, "Study with a sense of urgency"
Now... this is my opinion, but I've heard similar sentiments from many other artists and creators who I would consider, "successful" in their field. And, in my opinion, "Study with a sense of urgency" is the absolute worst advice anyone could give to a beginner.
Yes, you need to work hard. The arts are a competitive field, and you need to push yourself if you want to climb the ladder. BUT in all of your hard work beware of mind sets like:
-"If I don't get good fast my dream job will disappear."
-"When this artist was my age they were still

Advice about Softwares and Wacom, read
First of all , hope you had excellent days in past holidays an new year, this is going to be a great year for me, at least in my work flow, because i just discovered something. So let me tell you my nightmare story for the past  4 years.
The hidden bug....
I used to have a cintiq 21 ux that had 1024 levels of pressure and was an incredible device, and i was like its time to move for a cintiq 22hd to try new pressure, i was like "yeah i will be able to control more my lines", but after  getting a faulty device, and talking to wacom, took them like 8 months to send me a new one, because repairs didnt went that great, im greatful for them to send me a new cintiq, thats a nice custoimer service, but...
Pen didnt felt great at all.
Then, tweaked bios over and over on my computert, bought some usb cards, changed power supply units, destroyed a computer for over experimenting, got another one, broke another one after a year, got a newer one, tested my cintiqw on more than 6 computer

Thank you for making such extensive resource lists. As a self-taught artist, it is especially useful to have so many resources compiled in one place.
