This goes along nicely with that journal post I made recently and my influence map exercise.

This might not look like much, but it has some information I think many need to hear, because it may just be getting entirely overlooked. I would almost consider this the most basic, most important tutorial I've written. Not all of you might agree wholly with it either, and that's fine -- these are just the opinions of myself.

Go do what you need to do!

This is more of a PSA than anything, come to think of it.
By the way, I did design it so that it reads "BEST ADVICE: JUST DO IT - NOW GET TO WORK" from the thumbnail. It remains as a tiny reminder XD

Thank you, Matt. This inspired me to print out pictures of Shia LaBeouf to hang on my wall, so he can always inspire me. "Just do it" - ah, those famous words.

Thanks I needed this! I think my biggest problem is that I feel like I am slow and spend too much time on an art piece. I feel like I should be hammering this stuff out two or three a day. I dunno, maybe that's just my issue lol.

Best advice.. ever. Really inspiring.
I do have periods where I hate what I'm doing, and I wish I'd just be better, you know, just like that in a minute or so. But I know that it's takes time, and I know that I'm improving.
Trials and errors, that's what you need. And a positive view on things.

Thank you~

And THIS is a tutorial for artists. Because being an artist means also looking deep in soul,livestyle, not ONLY at works.

Hope you can understand what I wrote, but I'm glad to see something like you wrote here.
But this is my personal opinion- I feel I really wanted to see something like this. nah. sorry for bugging you.

It's just wonderful.
