10 ways to become a better artist
Dear, deviantart fellow artists
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.  :) (Smile) 
1. Make art with your heart 
    Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks. 
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once

I want to get better yet lack the motivation and resources to learn, so in the meantime...

Favorite cartoon character: Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Favorite games: Final Fantasy 14, Fire Emblem Awakening, Rune Factory 3, Dragon Age: Origins.

I'm trying to learn Ukulele, its not going well XD

Oh I have a tumbler so you can follow me on there if you like.
********I've been tagged by :iconthedivinemissm-94: thought it looked fun so here goes:

You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to.
Hit shuffle on your iPod/Phone/iTunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs. 
Then pass this onto 10 people.

1. Habits (stay high) by Tove Lo
2. Breathing Underwater by Metric
3. Baby, You Aint Lookin Right by PowerSolo
4. Chandelier by Sia 
5. Everlasting Light by The Black Keys
6. Untrust Us by Crystal Castles
7. Zombie by The Cranberries
8. Turn into by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
9. Soft Shock by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
10. Hold Tight by Dave Dee Dozy Mick & Tich

Not sure what all these songs and artists say about me XD But I love all these's songs so it may be a good representation of me atm. There is def not 10 people I can tag but I'll tag those of you who are fairly active on DA.

:iconmarlin-rae: :iconsakuraartist: :icontheashendirewolf: :iconcarluuh: :iconms-patient-zero: :icontagfox:

Have fun can't wait to hear your songs!

Happy birthday my sweet!!! la huggle 

I hope you have the most brilliant day, and that it's filled with joy, love and laughter.
:ihavecaek: :happy birthday: 

I was hoping to have your refs so I could sneakily draw something as I didn't know what/who to draw for you, so your gift will be belated this year :blush:

Awww :hug: thanks dearest! My bday has been great, i've had a birthday week really XD

Sorry for not getting those sent to you! I'm so busy lately with work, getting prepared for Thanksgiving break too, I'll finally be able to breath. A whole week off!

I'll send then over soon! I think you'll have painting the character i have in mind, heheheh :egg:
TheDivineMissM-94 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahah, I had one of those as well! xD

Oh no no no, don't worry at all! I wasn't saying it to nag you, I was just explaining why I hadn't drawn you anything because I felt guilty xD
I totally understand, I'm in the same boat! I just started a new flexible/self-employed sort of job, it's really weird xD but I threw my first "party"/function today and it went really well! I'm super stoked about it :dummy: And I have three more who want to book within the next three months and I'm like :faint: xD I have to wait for Christmas for a break, but it's longer at least xD I'm looking forward to getting to draw my OC's again, play games and generally slack off!! :D

Ooh I'm excited! Can't wait :excited:
