Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing
This is why you (and your art) get ignored.People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all!
Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T

Creative Contracts for DummiesArt in the Professions Week
I'm not a lawyer. This isn't legal advice. My professional insurance does not cover this article. Also:
"The article does not constitute an attorney-client relationship, attorney-client privilege, or legal or practical advice of any sort. [Dongs.]" - haldron
If you're looking at a contract that's terrifying you or involves a ludicrous amount of money or whatever, please consult a local lawyer in your jurisdiction who can help you more directly. This is an article intended to gloss over standard creative contracts from the perspective of a contractor/employee and an employer, and to try and make you realize why you should probably use one - plus a few tips I've learned over the years on both sides of these contracts. Now buckle up and enjoy the read.
Contracts. Some people love them (and rightfully so); some people fear them; some people genuinely don't know wha

Project Educate: Haiku, Senryu, Tanka, and RengaAs part of Poetry Forms week at projecteducate, we wanted to go into a bit of detail regarding some of the more well-known Eastern forms of writing. The same way there are many forms of Western poetry, there are many forms of Eastern poetry, and ultimately this article will barely begin to scrape the surface of even the forms that it actually touches on, but within this article, there are links to resources that delve further into the subject matter, and all are worth reading if the subject interests you.
Haiku & Senryu
Haiku, in the classical Japanese sense, is a small poem comprised of 17 characters known as on (sometimes onji). These characters each represent one unit of sound, and each unit of sound has its own meaning which then contributes to the overall haiku. The 17 on are split into phrases of 5, 7, and 5, which is where the most commonly know
