What NOT to do as an artist!

1. Constantly compare your self to others.
2. Talk to your family about what you do and expect them to cheer you on.
3. Base the success of your entire career on one project.
4. Stick with what you know.
5. Undervalue your expertise
6. Let money dictate what you do.
7. Bow to societal pressure.
8. Only do work that your family would love.
9. Do whatever the client/customer/gallery owner/patron/investor asks.
10. Set unachievable /overwhelming goals. To be accomplished by tomorrow.

the above list was made by Keri Smith

I personally disregard 6 and 9, while everything else on the list is some thing I have done at one point or another. At the moment I don't have much in the way of art to show even though I draw nearly every day. Nearly everything I do is class work at the current moment. Mostly consisting of gestures and focused studies of human figures. Once that is over with I will take on commissions from friends I know in person. I have no shortage of fans that would like me to make rough sketches of their D&D or World of Darkness characters. I've even been asked to make some illustrations for a hypothetical future book that a friend is planing to write. Faith it appears is eternal, so I might as well give being an hermit artist another shot... rather then just being a hermit. *snaps claws* grr don't bother me! Within that regard I am taking an art class to get back on the curve, after that I will stick to teaching my self for a while. They key is to keep drawing everyday, even if your upset or tired, momentum must be maintained. I find that some times the very act of drawing can get you out of a crabby mood. If anyone can provide me any internet based tools or suggestions then I would be eternally grateful. Thus far I have found two handy tools to use. artists.pixelovely.com/practic… very handy gesture drawing tool; and this one lovecastle.org/draw/ courtesy of Arvalis here on DeviantArt. Another artist suggested using Vimeo which has plenty of no BS art tutorials. (Youtube has plenty as well)

Have you read BLAME! by Tsutomu Nihei?

If not, you can find it here (first of 10 books): [link]

Your art bears incredible resemblances with the world in that manga.
