Yea and when they get popular they just stuck their heads up to the clouds and don't even seem to be thankful anymore :|

Unfortunately, most of them are still considered amateurs by everyone else on the day they die.

That's what arrogant and snobbish artists must remember, they are simply unbeareble and unfair. One day their work was lousy too, so think twice before being that chesty jerk again that makes harsh criticism instead of a constructive one. On the other hand, that quote is an usesful stimulus for the begginers: if you are starting today and practice enough you're going to reach your goal no matter how bad you think your stuff looks/sounds now.

No there are numerous people who progressed through art, you are only one, not all. There is no reason to discourage people at all. Your experiences are not the only ones. By the way, if you think you are bad at art and don't have the gift and so on, why are you still here?

Omg you are angry?! All you said is complete bullshit! No, you are not stating the reality, you are a jerk and an annoying prick. Im the one who should be angry here, you just replyed me to say nonsense isntead of commenting like everyone else. You think you suck at art and will never get better? Boo hoo! Poor you! That doesn't surprise me, with that way of thinking. For the ones that are great artists and are arrogants: yes they are idiots and are intolerable, no matter if they were born with a gift or developed this ability. I answered you nicely at first time, but instead you insisted in being a dickhead. You were disgusted? Really!? What an inversion of values. Please, go fuck yourself in the burning hell. :finger:

What about a prodigy?

Irrefutably a prodigy may have more than the rest of us to begin with. But an amateur - to me, at least - is not about how much flair you possess, but about how much of your potential you've unleashed, refined. In all their greatness, prodigies still need to dig through years of hard work to become a true master. Piano virtuosos, perhaps, are the most obvious examples :)

Except Leonard De Vinci. his first painting assignment from his teacher was the face of an angel. it was so impressive his teacher quit, having been outdone by his youngest student.

True - but let's not allow geniuses to dispirit us. How many De Vincis are there anyway? =p

I agree. Da Vinci was born with his genius awake, most of us must awake the genius inside of us. :) We all are made from the same matter. We all were created by God (or nature or the universe).
Believe in yourself.

This is what snobby, stuckup artists need to know. They once drew like crap.

Best quote ever!
