I think in a few ways, yes. There are no absolute rules in art, but there are a few bullet points I like to hit when making a piece. Composition, balance, contrast, are all very important. I would say 3 of the most important. More so than actual drawing ability. I think this is one of the reasons crudely drawn work can still look so good.
I sit down, create a good composition, and find a good color palette to stick to. Both can change, but those are good starting points.#sownnd
When I have no inspiration, I draw anyways. I browse tumblr and look for pretty images, find out what’s working in them, and maybe latch onto that. Personally, I like to focus on shape, color, and texture. I just hone in on those things and draw almost anything if I can’t think of a good concept. Even if the end result isn’t great, the experience of that practice helps.
Plus, professionally, you have to force yourself to draw even when you mentally aren’t ready to.#Anonymous
Thank you so much! Funny you bring that up, because I often feel like I don’t reveal enough of my daily life and everyone must think I’m just drawing 24/7. I’m actually playing video games tonight.
I’ve always had great support, but I think I’ve had that support because those around me see both potential and determination in me. I work hard and have always my parents behind me, my brothers behind me, and teachers behind me.
Thanks for the question! And I’m glad you think I’m human! (I totally am)#strongindependentgamer
