Lessons I've learned as an artist

Today I thought that I will share some lessons that I've learned during the past 4 years.

  1. If you get artist block, then don't get frustrated. Take some time off, do something else, go for a walk, meditate, listen to music or read a book. Anything which would take your thoughts off from the fact that you can't create at the moment.
  2. Don't compare your artwork with other artist's artwork. I know that its so good to view artwork that other artists have created but sometimes we tend to forget ourselves and start seeing all these artists who are better than we are. The truth is, there will always be better artists. That doesn't mean that you aren't good enough. You are good in your own unique way. By constantly drawing and painting you will get better and better every day. You just have to be patient.
  3. Don't be a copycat. Don't try to be somebody else. Don't try to copy some other artist's style. Be patient. In time you will develop your own style and this will be something how people will  remember you, this will make you special.
  4. Take some courses or buy some new e-books. Try to learn some new things and develop your  art skills.
  5. Try to be open minded to all the ideas that you get. It's good to try new things and step out of your comfort zone. This way you can grow as an artist.
