It's really neat how studying other crafts can help your artistic practice. Have you ever seen any funny crossovers between two different fields of art?

*Singing* It's the Circle of Creativity! As they all come together!
But seriously, everything usually comes hand in hand in the creative department.

Every field is inter-connected! I might even be able to learn something from business or law...how very intriguing.

Beautifully presented and explained!

I feel my writing has much improved since I improved at art because I now think much more visually with my books; 'is a scene in a book easy to imagine?' 'Does it have an appealing composition?' makes for much more entertaining storytelling.

And my art has improved through my love of sewing, and dressmaking, and the history of fashion; the drapes of my fabric and the way they rest on people is more realistic and pleasurable to look at!

And my love off building things from wood has improved because of my love of dressmaking. When pieces of wood are cut up they resemble a dressmakers pattern, but in a solid 3D piece, that in turn, has helped me with my art :XD:

The Circle of Creativity!

Much the same im experiencing now:
I used to draw comic and be an animator (as child) later i grow with videogames and i wish to create videogames, this send me to learn basic principles of coding, Pixel art, use of chart to do missions, desing and creation of character and how do more tweaking basic things and others things related, now im 32 and im retaking drawing because is i really like (even do Vgames like too) now im reading tvtropes to learn writing and do good stories to draw myself.
Even im currently a worker (nothing with games or drawing) i spend all my free time learning to mix or add to im already know... i dont regret nothing... only have little time.

You're right, you do learn plenty of things from one art-form that can be used in another. I'm currently practicing the art of coffee art :D I don't mean making art with the coffee, I mean the art on the coffee like this (for example):

It's very interesting seeing what I can make with nothing but a high contrast of values between the white milk and the darker brown, and a few simple lines going back and forth or side to side.

That is so cool! It's one of the things that makes me excited about art-- even in something incredibly simple like coffee, there is a nearly endless amount of effects and ways of doing things you can learn and apply.

This is sooooo awesome! This is why I love the movie Ratatouille, watching Remy cook was like watching someone compose music or paint an image. It's brilliant! And I really love looking at magazine articles and scrap booking and now it changes how I look at composition. And that meal sounds delicious, now I want to try it :D

Yeah! I can be fun to kind of engage the synesthesia and use it creatively!

Cooking with music... wow 0_0 At first it made me think of synesthesia... That was very interesting, as always! Thanks for sharing!
