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
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?
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
