How many hours do you work per day? I try to work everyday but I don´t feel like I´m improving on my art TT

Hi anon! Well, I can say some things: FIRST

NOP. STOP.

Have you heard about the rule of 10.000 hours? It is true, and it is fucking logical. This is the key.

You can have talent, or maybe not, but it all depends on how much time have you invested honing your skill.

Why he/she is better than me?

More hours.  There is no secret, no genie.

WANT TO KNOW SOMETHING FASCINATING?

MYELIN

this is the mystery.

The number of hours you practice it´s related to this white thing that surrounds nerves. If you active use some specific nerves again and again /lets go crazy and picture yourself drawing, imagine what is working in your body that moment/ specific nerves are active that time and myelin is created. And if you screw up, if you have to go slow for a while it is even better. In a few words, myelin helps to be more precise, the nerves respond more fast and better, its makes you faster and skilled, to control better, tto fucking master the skill.

Whether it´s painting or playing violin it´s your choice.

This shit blowed my mind, really. I keep the fucking paper with this article and I carry it always with me, its one of my secrets.

As for improving, keep doing it, you won´t see it in a week, maybe you will  notice a change in a few months until you pick a drawing or painting you made 3 months before and compare to the last. The improvement will be there as long as you work. Be open, ask yourself why you don´t like it, push yourself to what you are not confortable, this is important, a lot of beginners artists don´t step out their confort zone.

Work everytime you can, but don´t say to yourself ” I must do it” “I have to… X” no, this will send a bad message and surely quit some joy for what you are doing. Do what you want. As long as you practice and take risks it works.

SO: DONT GET FRUSTRATED.

AND BE CONSTANT

I AM YELLING IN CAPS BECAUSE I CARE

YOU CAN DO IT. YOU LOVE IT, NO ONE WOULD DRAW, PAINT, SCULPT WHAT YOU DO, YOU HAVE A  UNIQUE WORLD INSIDE. SO GIVE IT LIFE

As for myself, well, I finished classes a few months ago so now I made a work schedule now that I am at home.

I try to work at least 4 hours a day. Weekends I try to relax.

I get up at 7, 8-9 do some exercise, 9-10 I will draw and then I will go painting in Photoshop until 2. more or less

Afternoon I can be painting, animating, drawing or sculting, whatever I want from 6 to 9-10.

ps: that is why I am barely online now, I am pretty tired at the end of the day and last thing I want is look to another computer… sorry x3

Hugs anon!

Hi there!

I know I´ve been missing a lot lately and I want to thank all of you with the patience to stick with me and have send me messages!

Good news:

I have a great job as a Concept Artist and I´m working with awesome people and that´s a reason why I haven´t much free time for my stuff and the internet. I started a few months so… and stuff at home and some house repairs put together sucked my time and I have been fighting to try to have some time to see my friends here, so, please forgive me. It hasn´t been intentional x3

I´m going to change this.

Have a great week everyone!

Feeling like a genius rn at 3D Class when i collapsed the triangles to squares. like a puzzle… maybe I can play professor layton now. /someone shoot me pls)

And I just want to play Dark Souls with my little sister when shes singing “I will make man out of you” as I run trying to avoid death. Half the times I died  was because I was laughing too much

Later I will post some Hobbit drawings <3

Hope you all have a great day

anonymous asked:

Where did you learn to animate? :O I would love to learn

Thanks anon! X3

The truth is I have learned by myself, spend some time in bachelor learning Flash and some basics then, last year with my final project I decided I wanted to do an animation about The Name of the Wind and started practicing and reading a lot. I use Photoshop for animation now.

books I have and I recommend:

“Advanced animation” by Preston Lair.

“Timing for animation”  by Harold Whitaker and John Halas.

“The animator´s survival kit” by Richard Williams.

on a personal note (I think I learned some basics too when I was eleven. I went some afternoons to an art workshop open for kids and adults where you could do whatever you wanted, there, one of the teachers saw my drawings and said that my stupid dinousaurs and dragons had a lot of movement and he put me on another class to teach me comic and animation.

I could have learned a lot more if I wasn´t angry with him for taking me away of my friends and learning stuff that I didn´t care at that moment… If I could go back in time I would slap myself for been an idiot. But I started a bit there. )

Also I recommend it for strengthen your drawing skills.

Good luck anon

There was one time, in bachelor arts, when my friends and I were bored at this class, because you could just present a piece of paper and say it was “the emptiness of the human reality now” and the teacher would love it so we started to write and put hidden messages in our works or Nicolas Cage photos just for laughs when, one day, one of my friends presented a set of boxes with a notebook with thoughts about the project over the days.

The teacher picked it and just open it random and in that page, in that exactly page was written in huge words “I LIKE TO TOUCH PENISES IN THE MORNING” and she just stared at my friend in silence while he was talking about Kant.

… I don´t know how to say this… Real life has been a mess lately, a chaotic and fun mess without light and internet in my flat and good friends, but gave me no time to be here like I should until put things in order…but yesterday was different, my friend passed away. The cancer or whatever the hell it was won. I, we, didn´t expected this. I didn´t, and I don´t know how.. forget it words escape from me now… Maybe she knew and didn´t wanted to tell me… Maybe I didn´t wanted to see the signs… the hell

I don´t seek simpathy or anything, just telling, some of my followers and friends already knew about this friend and gave me support and ideas for her. I have discovered that tumblr is a great place and gives me more than humor and laughs, it has gave me friends and let me met wonderful people.

So… what. I can say. I´m sedated, I can´t cry, I just feel how much we have lost everyone of us.

Have all a hug

I have tons of messages and I have been away some time, I will respond and fix everything.

Yesterday mom have to leave house in a hurry to check on a familiar, thinking she was late she didn´t notice leaving my uncles house door open (its right next to us and empty rn) so when she came back and saw the open door she thought that maybe someone was there and better be careful and my sister remembered my pepper spray and gave it to mom. The thing is while she catchs it she pushed the bottom  and all the spray went to my sister´s face.

I AM NOT LYING. Mom called me asking what to do while my sister spatted curses on the floor and then I have to keep and eye on her on skype while mum ran to a pharmacy. I almost die of laughter, I swear this family…

anonymous asked:

You're self taught?!?

I am anon :3

I have studied Arts, finished this year to be exact. But there we only did mostly “modern art, and conceptual art”… and some art that you could do with two cans, three fabrics well placed and a long explanation about philosophy and then people would nod and you would think, damm “he´s good”, and sculpture (which I love) and I even did a bit of blacksmithing (which I ended frustrated because they didn´t let me do anything with it….  sigh  wanted to do a gondor tower helmet)  friends here can tell you. It was a laugh and although I have really enjoyed it and had great laughs with great people x3 I was dissappointed to see that they were not going to teach us anything digital or animation how I wanted. LIKE NEW TECHNOLOGIES MAN… PHOTOSHOP THAT NEW ERA HAVE U HEARD OF IT

So… yes, I bought a wacom tablet when I could with my parents help and in the worst year I ever had I decided that, If no one was going to teach me then I was going to learn myself. That´s the short version. I have the luck that my parents have always supported me despite part of the family, and I have always apprecciated this.

And this year its when I really like what I do, really, I am too perfectionist. 

PS: I have found more people at class that have done the same.

OMFG WHT, I JUST LOGGED AND SAW ALL THE NOTES AND COMMENTS. DO I HAVE TO SAY HOW MUCH AM I LAUGHING AND SMILING??!

SERIOUSLY, I DID THIS BECAUSE I WAS BORED AND WANTED TO DO A RIDICULOUS FACE FOR THORIN AND I WAS SURE I WOULD BE THE ONLY ONE TO FIND IT FUNNY. KSDJHFDGHDGK

COOKIES FOR EVERYONE!!   

/im not at home right now so I will answer later, thanks for your words and I´m so glad if I made you laugh/ HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!

Keep reading

This week of holiday with my family has helped a lot to calm me and put things in order… Mom has definitely helped me to see things in perspective and even my sister has reminded me to take care of myself. /so maybe it was more serious that I thought I already know that sometimes I focus too much on work.. but.. I know this is important/

The irony its that tomorrow morning we are supposed to submit all the exercises for Drawing subject… and I don´t know where to start, I want to give him at least half of the exercises cleaned… / guess im counting on caffeine today/ goodbye relax…

I will be answering messages in the breaks. X3 hope you all have a great day!
