How to Become an Artist
I have always wondered why some people become artists. Are they born with it, or is it a lot of hard work behind it all? Since we’re all different, it seems most likely that It´s a mix of them both. Here are my main tips on how you can become an artist.
- Learn the basics on your own. We all have to start somewhere, so just do it! There’s no time to be wasted! Pick up a book on the library and start practicing the basics. It will help you a lot later on.
- Recognize you weaknesses and strengths. Try to always improve your weaknesses, work hard on those and i promise you that it will pay off in your art as well.
- Do the research. Again, this ties together with learning the basics. But i can’t emphasis this enough. You have to learn the basics, and you need to know them well. So do the research necessary, figure out what things you need to know. A good advice is to try and find someone that’s way ahead of yourself, and learn from them!
- Get the gear. What supplies is needed? Find out and get them as soon as possible. You need to be very comfortable with your own tools and supplies.
