Neil Gaiman's Advice To Aspiring Artists & More!



youtu.be/_6Vpl8JoIiY

“Saying that we have enough artists is like saying we have enough scientists, we have enough designers, we have enough politicians — we have enough politicians — but, you know, nobody gets to be you except you. Nobody has your point of view except you. Nobody gets to bring to the world the things that you get to bring to the world — uniquely get to bring to the world — except you. So, saying that there are enough writers out there, enough directors out there, enough people with points of view. Well yeah, there are, but none of them are you. And none of those people is going to make the art that you are going to make. None of them is going to change people and change the world in the way that you could change it. So if you believe somebody that says, “no, no, we’ve got enough of those,” then all it means is that you are giving up your chance to change the world in the way that only you can change it.”

Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is
How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc. 
And the most common
Some words for 2015This is what i wish for you in the coming year:
1. I hope you accept your art the way it is more.
2. I hope you will compare your art less with other's art.
3. I hope you erase less and draw more.
4. I hope you forgive your mistakes and see them for what they are, steps forward.
5. I hope you see your art for what it is but especially for what it can be
6. I hope you draw less of what others expect to see you draw and more of what made you want to start drawing in the first place.
7. I hope that when you see a beautiful drawing, it inspires you to try harder rather than quit.
8. I hope you don't cringe when you stumble on your old art and instead be amazed at how much you improved.
9. I hope i came up with more inspiring words C:

Watchers

I decided to write a new journal/cover page for my dA, it is a new year after all! 
Anyways, hi guys! How are all of you out there? 

I'm still here in Japan, studying art in an art school, and it's still one of the best experiences of my life. I've helped to set up some art exhibitions, gone to many exhibitions of famous artists as well as my colleague's exhibitions, learned so much about installations, light, color theory, my own art and my own work ethic...and yet there's still so much more to learn. About art, about everything and anything. 

Amidst all of that though, there are also times when I just struggle with my personal life. Sometimes, I start to have an identity crisis of why I'm in Japan, why I'm studying art. Then sometimes I worry about my financial situation. Living smack dab in the city is great and all, but when you're just an unstable college student,  sometimes the anxiety drives you insane. 

But then again, I guess I'm still young. Haha. And like I said, there's still a lot to learn, and I have more than enough time to make a name for myself here.

Anyways, enough about me rambling. Hope you all have a great year!

---

Since I'm not on dA as much anymore, I guess this journal will be something like a cover letter to my page, haha. 

Anyway, hello. I'm drawwi, you can also call me aiyuki :iconpinkballoonplz:
I've been on dA for about 6 years now, but have slowly started to become inactive as the years go by. 

However, I am currently a university student studying art in a university/art school and living in Japan. It has been very eye opening to study and live here and there have been so many opportunities thus far. I do sketch and doodle often, but there are also many days where I am working in the art studio due to projects and etc. 

Happy to meet you and feel free to talk to me! 

Sincerely, 
drawwi
