Hi there! Watched your videos about the mistakes beginner artists make. I made them all and stil do when I'm feeling lazy. Another one was starting from a piece of the picture, like the eyes on a portrait, or the head on a full body sketch, and then try do build the rest of the picture from that detail. In my humble opinion, one should always try to think the picture globally. As an exemple, I currently don't think of the background in my pictures, so when I try to add one, it usually seems off. So ultimately, it's a mistake I still need to work on. Thanks again for sharing.

Thank you for sharing.

I think we've all been guilty at each one of these at one point or another in life; sometimes our fault, sometimes not. The way unjust, unequal and unhealthily societies condition us and keep us biased and uneducated of true history and things veritably going on in the world doesn't help any, so it is up to us to take responsibility for ourselves and our works, no matter what they be. Though, not all all of us are privileged to grow up in a place where basic amenities are provided for, so true progression of our true calling is a lot of times not possible. Sadly survival comes first, which takes away from time and energy that could otherwise be devoted to craft. And let's be honest, until an artist has reached a level worthy to be professional and is able to effectively market one's work, one can't really get paid well enough to live on. Traveling and resources are also difficult if not impossible for some, too many. And it certainly does take a lot of practice to reach any point, which not all of us are able to do.

But thank you very much for sharing your available knowledge. Your videos are educational and point aspiring artists in the right direction. It is usually the simple things that people most neglect in life--those end up being the most important. So thanks again for sharing.
