What would you suggest for someone just starting out in art? I'm 18 now, and I know getting better can take a lot of practice, but every time I try I end up embarrassed or frustrated because what comes out is so low quality Any advice on how to see results/get better faster?

the first thing that came to mind was:

  • do not set insane expectations for yourself
  • do not set an ability cap on yourself

you’re going to grow, but it’s just like actual growing. sometimes you’ll notice that something doesn’t fit the same way it used to, but other than that, you don’t actually notice it happening in real time.

start out simple. i always hear “i can hardly draw a stick person!” like…great, alright, that’s a perfect platform. you can progress with that:

build up to things–i’ve found that starting from a foundation and working up from there produces fastest results. draw what you know, and then start to actually observe something to see what you aren’t understanding.

problem is, you really have to commit to it! if working on this skill becomes even just a free-time hobby, you’ll start to see progress.

i’m so happy i was commissioned to do the album/cassette/promo art for one of my longtime most favorite electronic artists nanobii 😊
