I was surprised to see that my last journal entry was in 2013. How time flies .....
First thank you for the nice comments, favs and friendships. I want give something back and do a tutorial. But when I think about it, it's more a journal, my philosophie of art. This journals should be small and easily digesteble with a lot of bad english. Yes that's the way I wanted it.
So becoming a better artist.... a stony way with a lot of deep canyons. I'm not talking about proportions or value or colour shemes. No I want to talk about motivation.
It's hard when you sit on your couch ( better you lie on your couch ) and watch tv or play a game to stop it and stand up ( oh fuck my bones ) and learn some boring anatomy or complicated lighting conditions ... ambient occlusion I can not articulate this word monster.
So what to do ? Imagine you are the person in the tv. Is it cool to watch that epsiode of your life, are you proud of ?
For me this questions works. I stand up. If this doesn't work I take a look at . Some people need no motivation, they are motivation.
Feedback motivation :
DA is a sea of artists. Feedback and getting popular is like food for an artist motivation ( you lie when you say no ).
Sometimes it's hard when you upload something and only a bunch of people see what you drew.
With no feedback, no improvement. But how you get feedback ?
It's the principle of give and take. When you give feedback you get feedback. It's easy, you can try it here !
I see you next time.
