everytime i see a brilliant art blog i always, ALWAYS ask them how to do the same, i probably have enough answers to make a book but i just don't know how to start!! the only thing i've mastered is the basic simple smiley face, what do i do? what next?
LOVE HELP YOU, CHILD!
*disclaimer: the mun of this blog is a silly cloud and none of this information is in any way professional and/or probably useful but whelp here goes do you like bullet points because I like bullet points
- Draw all of the time, and post the things you draw. Be proud of your work; show off your work to people. If you get nervous or think “this isn’t good enough to show to the world”, just do it anyways, because no matter what, you spent time on that business and it’s wonderful, because the more you draw, the better you get, the more you learn. Everything you make is a step closer to being better, and the best part is that it never ends! So own your work, keep getting better, let people see you struggle and fail and succeed! Let them watch you grow.
- Ask for feedback, because no matter if people are over-flatterers or the harshest of critics, feedback is good. Somewhere in your head you’ll find a happy medium filter where you are able to take the best parts of their critiques and use them to improve yourself! People are lovely and supportive, but they can be mean sometimes too. Just keep your chin up and try to have an open mind! And always be kind to people, if you can find it in your heart.
- Be interactive! This is the reason I’m on tumblr in the first place. I love getting inspiration from other artists and my followers. I love posting silly memes and taking requests, because I love to think that sometimes, maybe once in a blue moon, my art makes people happy. Art is about communication, and if my art can make someone smile, I’ve done all I set out to do. If someone wants me to draw something, I try my best to make it happen, because I love making people smile!
- Let others inspire you. Let yourself inspire them. I keep an artspo blog for inspiration, and I’ve seen a lot of amazing artists of all calibers and schooling and experiences levels do the same. No matter how “good” you are as an artist, you’re probably going to feel like you’re not “good enough” sometimes. It’s an artist thing, I’ve found. The thing is, art is such a varied hobby. Styles are so different and amazing and lovely, from sketches to professional work to silly cartoons. Let others inspire you, not disappoint you. Try never to get stuck on “I’ll never be as good as _____,” because no, you won’t. Not because you’ll never reach their skill level, but because you’re not them, you’re you. Own your own style, own your skill, own your passion, you’re amazing.
I hope this helps even a little uwu
So our assignment this week was to re-create some Glen Keane Disney work.
