Art Tip: Managing Focus
People don't listen to classical music as much as they used to. Many would define it as slow or boring, and in comparison with the fast paced, drum driven, digital glitching music of today they're not wrong to feel it that way.
This is true in every form of media. Why play a board game when you can play a video game with exciting graphics and sound? Why watch a stage play when you can watch a movie with impossible action and breathtaking visuals? Why read an article when you can watch a YouTube vlog with jump cuts mid-sentence ensuring none of your precious time is wasted?
This is the evolution of media and technology and it's not inherently bad, in many ways it's incredibly good. New media offers all kinds of great things that shouldn't be discounted, but it also comes with a risk. We get used to the idea that we need to be perpetually entertained, every second of every day. When we're used to being constantly stimulated by new #content, how can we ever expect to sit down for 8 hours

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

Here's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA. It's what i've been preaching to you aspiring artists since i arrived on DA, but i think his POV says it perfectly:
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

Creative people (comic con talk I did)
(some of this you may have read in my other journals too. This was my talk at the ICE comic con last weekend.)
To be creative is a way of thinking. When you observe what’s around you, what are the things you pick up and store in your memory?
(Only look at this image for a few seconds and then scroll it out of the frame)

This was an image of the 2013 World photography awards.
I’ve just shown it to you for about 10 seconds. What do you still remember from it?
The pigeons that fly around? The fact that these pigeons were white? The notion of all the Blue in the image , so well in the building as in the clothing of the women. Or did you remember the two kids  that seem to be the cause of the birds fleeing the scene.
Someone with an interest towards architecture probably lingered his eyes at the building and recognized it’s style culture and perhaps knows of it’s build method. While someone with an interes

My current learning process.
(UPDATE - Ravenwilder and I have teamed up as Artbuddies. You can follow my progress with learning art here.)
Proceed down the playlists numerically, practice alongside as and when relevant. These will work even if you are a complete beginner and have never drawn before. If you can write the alphabet, you have enough physical skill to do this. Even if you are an experienced hobbyist artist, it would be best to not skip any of them, especially the first 2 playlists.
PART 1 - Drawing
1. Drawing methods - How people draw, what to do and what to avoid.
2. Composition for Artists - How to make an appealing layout, art basics for creating good layout
