Anonymous asked: “Do you have any tips for an artist who's a beginner?”
I could tell you to do always what makes you feel good.
- Work hard, because you can’t improve your skills from yesterday to today. You need time, a lot of time. Always look up to artists who are better than you, even if you feel depressed when you watch their works. You have to say yourself: I want to be better, and I can.
- There are a lot of people who’s gonna say you that what you do it’s stupid. Don’t listen them, they don’t understand and never will.
- Respect your characters/drawings but don’t be a protetcive parent for them, they have to grow up and be better. So don’t treat them as precious kids, you can maltreat them because that’s what make you a good artist, never be completely satisfied with your work it’s part of the game. Your first idea is good but there’s always a way to do it better. It’s frustrating, but acting like this will give you the power to do the best. But also when you are ready to do a good work you know when it’s time to stop draw, and when your drawing it’s ok the way it is.
- Researches are important. Your fantasy it’s the big thing here, but it’s based on reality. If you don’t know reality you can’t draw an imaginative kingdom which seems very realistic.
- Human anatomy is the freaking rule. If you can’t draw people well you will never be good as you want. Sit down in a station, on in a airport, or in a mall and draw the people you see. It’s amazing the things you can learn from.
- Now that you have learned people you can understand the background, and the world. Because everything in this world made by a human is made to fit our body, and for the nature, we were born in it, so we fit in it.
- And never forget: perspective.
So, basically, take your time to learn. Never rush.
Even a major artist never stop to learn something.
