Heyyy, thanks for dropping by my page♥
I go by either Annie, Matrix, or any form of the word Potato!
I'm kinda weird and awkward at first but I like making friends! I really love LOTR, Star Wars, Pokemon, & the Lion King. My favorite animals are horses and I squeal when I talk about them. I'm a tomboy and I'm also a Bible-believing Christian! My favorite things to do (besides drawing) are eat, sleep, & bake goodies. I really don't like domestic cats, but I love dogs and wolves are really special to me♥

    Young artists: some advice.

    Sun Sep 7, 2014, 3:27 PM



    So I have a lot more young friends than I do older friends (when it comes to artistic friends, that is) and I see a lot of them struggling with their art, disliking it, or just unsatisfied with it as a whole. A lot of them are always telling me how good I am- and I'm not trying to brag okay maybe a little -but, with that being said, I want to extend some wisdom that I learned throughout the years of being an artist.

    If you're unhappy with your art, if you don't think your art is nearly as good as the people you look up to, if you think  you will never be as good as the artists you admire, stop. Just stop right there and let me tell you something.

    Do you think I was born this good? No, of course not! I started out in the same place as you, just a kid who liked to draw. I'm only 19 and I just recently (like in the past year) started to feel like my art was worth something, that my art was good. In fact, some days, I still think my art sucks. I still scrap sketches, I still struggle with anatomy and trying to put things from my mind onto paper.

    What I'm trying to say is that being an artist takes time. It takes patience, it takes diligence, and it takes effort, like everything else in your life you want to accomplish. It's not going to magically happen over night. Sure you may hate your art right now, but if you're truly passionate about getting better, then practice. Practicing is the only way to improve yourself. Think about what you need to imrove about your art, ask questions, ask for redlines, ask for advice, just ASK! Not all of us 'popular artists' bite (although some of them are pretty stingy). Take advantage of us!

    If I had friends who were good at art when I was younger, you could bet your ass that I would be asking for so much advice from them, so I'm extending myself to you guys. If you ever want help, just ask me! Now that doesn't mean use us to get free art or free lessons, but what that means is that if you are seriously struggling with something, don't be afraid to note me (or other artists) if you think I could help. If I can, I'll do my best, but if I can't I'll try and find someone who can or maybe refer you to someone else who I know could.

    There's one last thing I want to add. With all of this being said, remember: the only thing holding you back is you. I'm not keeping you from improving yourself, your parents aren't, your teachers aren't. No one can keep you from getting better at art (unless they just refuse to let you draw which is absurd but I don't think anyone does that). You have to make the conscious choice and actually put effort forward. If you're always complaining and not doing anything about it, you might as well quit right now because you'll never get anywhere like that. Make mistakes, learn from them, and get better.
