I've always been very good at art...drawing. I was born with the talent, and yet I don't really use or show it! I hate that, I dream of having an exhibition, of all these things I want to draw, people mostly. I give up so easily on my drawing, I just can't help it! I'm easily frustrated! XD ... I'll read a book or play guitar instead because it takes less effort and time. But I really want to draw and use my talent. I just need MOTIVATION!! ...more than just a cool idea or photograph to draw...I have the art supplies, a space to do it and I just dunno!
I do art at school, but it's ok there because there's no escape, I'm told what to do , helped and encouraged!
Any young artists out there? What do YOU do to get yourself in the zone and not give up? How do you motivate yourself?! And stay like that?
I heart art! ushally when I just doodle or draw without planning ahead I find myself getting bored and doing a really sloppy job and evenutally giving up!. Before you start drawing give yourself something to work on that you've planned ahead of time. (I work better when im given a specific drawing assignemnt)
Ex-> -draw a sandwhich from an interesting view in colored pencil -Take a famous surealist drawing and make it your own using tempra piant
-when im disatisfied with my quality of work I ushally ask my at teacher for her opinion and help. Remeber everything takes practice if you need more ideas or help funmail me
im 16 and at college doin art and design I have a talent at art to but get bored of it at time and I say to myself because im crap in english you have to do this or your going to have a crap job when older. so if I don't do it I stopped in till I did it.. but my girlfriend is preg and I do my art all the time so I can get a gud job to provide for my family.. hope I've helped
for me I try to draw to tell a story I get inspired 2 draw from music vid games other pls art and more but what many artist draw is from your personal experiences in life.and I cant stress enough the importance of a refrence picture always research and ref while and before you draw.
oh and also think about something that makes you really happy or really sad etc and draw what comes to mind.try not to worry much on style draw what comes to u.
