I am very happy to see that there are many great artists today especially becuase I just recently joined DA. I support everyone here and I would like to thank everyone for being an inspiration to me, making me practice more and more. I'm an amateur but I really want to be able to illustrate stuff from my mind that hopefully will be able to inspire more aspiring artists and put a smile on their faces. Well that's my dream.
I also enjoy seeing artists making new attempts in their work. I think it's really imprtant to never be content and just seek for imrpovement. It won't hurt to reach the very limit of your talent (If there's a limit). Like my sister tells me, just enjoy the process. And also the secret...PRACTICE!
I always get pressured and what my dad tells me...
"Pressure is important...Let's just compare it to an orange. If you don't sqeeze it, the juice won't come out"
I really believe that. So I hope this was able to help. ^_^
One more thing, Don't be afraid to show who you really are. For me, that's really imortant in being an artist. Being close to things around you, especially nature is also an important thing.
Again all of these are only my thoughts...I'm just a kid. I'm not that experienced and all of these so far are stuff that I believe and stuff that I've learned from my 13 years of living. Hehe!
ENJOY THE MIRACLES AROUND YOU, MAKE THEM YOUR INSPERATION AND NEVER LOSE PASSION FOR WHAT YOU DO!
