Artistic Problems 2- Why Do We Need The Arts?

Ft. The Importance of Creativity

If you have a burning passion for the arts, and you’re having doubts whether you’re good enough or whether you should pursue it or not, then there’s something I need to tell you. It’s really, really, really important that you continue doing what you love to do. And if it’s the arts that you’re interested in, whether it’s Music, Drawing, Poetry, Dancing, Acting or whatever, you have to do it!

In this ever-changing world, the era of creative arts has begun. If you’re the type of person who lives for anything to do with creativity and the arts then it’s your turn to rule.

If you feel like there’s already a lot of people who are already ‘Art World’ and that you might not be good enough to keep up with them, then go and read the article I wrote earlier called “Artistic Problems- Why can’t I art?!” (http://ascendancepro.tumblr.com/post/138766549766/artistic-problems-why-cant-i-art)

If you’ve already read that article and still feel unconfident then smack yourself. You’re awesome. Yes, you; the one reading this, is awesome. As long as you love what you’re doing, you are indeed gonna be amazing at it. As long as you believe in yourself and you take action and effort to work on it, there’s nothing to stop you in unleashing your full potential in being the epic artist that you already are.

Now, why do we need the Arts in the first place? The Arts are a source of Creativity. And only with Creativity can we come up with brilliant ideas and not get stuck in boring day to day routines. With Art, everyone is allowed to be themselves, to let their own Creativity flow. You can’t actually steal Art, you can only use it and adapt it to your own style.

With the Arts, you are free to express yourself in a way beyond words. And since it’s something that is beyond words, I can’t actually describe it. You need to experience it yourself. Everyone has something that they are passionate about, something that their Hearts wants them to do. It might not seem normal or logical but that’s the fun part about it! You can do something different.

Personally, in my own experience, I love Music and Writing. When I play Music, doesn’t matter if it’s a piano, a bass guitar or even a ukulele, I feel happy. I feel truly, honestly Happy. That’s the word I use, not because I can’t think of any other word to describe how I feel, but because that is actually how I feel, happy.

As for Writing, you are currently reading what I’m writing so you might have guessed that I kind of like doing this.

Everyone has their own way of expressing their Creativity. All it takes is for one person to start being Creative and soon their vibes will start spreading to everyone around them; and eventually the whole world. (Believe it or not I’m actually serious about this, it’s called the Law of Vibrations and Attractions; check it out here www.ascendancepro.com)

So, find out what you’re passionate about and get started in working on it. Pass on the creativity, because Creativity is what makes the worlds go around.

So, Tentacl has just entered open beta.

Understandably for many of you, another social media site is the last thing you need. For those looking for more venues to share their art, sell artwork, or mingle with other artists, though, Tentacl is a shiny new graphics-friendly spot.  The opportunity to jump in and help me in establishing and influencing the burgeoning art community is wide open.

That’s not all, though.  If you ever have pangs of nostalgia for Gaia, Tentacl might be of interest as well.  It’s quite conducive to RP, equipped with social games and a lot of incentive to interact and, of course, customizable avatars.  (When time allows, I intend to add some Lackadaisy-themed avatars, in fact).

Check it out sometime..and if you happen to sign up, drop me a message so we can connect there!

bands-that-saved-me-xx asked:

Hey ! I found some of your fob fan art and really liked it.. I didn't know who the owner was but posted it anyway with the caption "credits to owner" so people knew that it wasn't my art.. A girl messaged me telling me that it was your art and I'm so sorry that I posted it without your permission😁 I can delete it if you want to. I found it on google and I couldn't find the owner anywhere, so I'm sorry if I wasn't allowed to post it. I didn't mean to steal your art at any point. I'm sorry*

Thank you for asking! (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

I’ve heard of this excuse many times before and I know some of you guys don’t mean harm/disrespect to the artist but you just don’t know where to find the original source. So I would like to use this opportunity to clear it out on

 “How to search for the original artist online?”

1. go to google images and click on the camera button on the side of the search bar.

2. click on upload an image and then click on the choose file

3. select the artwork that you have saved & want to search 

4. it will start searching~

5. results will appear!

Usually, the original artist will be on the top search but please do be careful and look at the sources smartly! Some times not all of them are at the top so don’t be oblivious and ignore!

One of the ways would be looking at their trademark/signature/initial on the artwork. Majority of artists will sign their name, so please look and observe the artwork and search for the name!! You can double confirm by looking at the links and signed name which matches.

Always ask for permission!
Not all artists are okay with spreading their artworks further than where they have already post it.
Some are flexible and are cool when proper credits are placed.
Please do not take online artists for granted!!
Respect and help the art community online as we provide you more amazing artworks each day!

Starting out on Patreon

I have been really considering the idea of making a patreon as it will be able to help me provide art in a more supportive manner. I would be incredibly grateful if you pledge any amount and become a Patron to me :’)

People who are curious about my work process or sketch ideas;
My Patreon will be a more in depth version of the art help that I post here, as I will be providing PSD files (that may contain text art tips) and tutorial/speed paint videos. I will also be offering advance previews to my artworks before posting here or my other social media sites.

Any questions feel free to ask me (un-anon or on chat) here on tumblr or twitter
