Improving upon one's self
July 19, 2010
Like a lot of artist out there I love the power of expression and creativity. I remember always going to buy the next best pencil set or that arches cold press paper thats 50 bucks right? Then along came the digital medium with ease of making texture and pencil strokes for that matter brush strokes that react like it were canvas, but with that efficient convenience come the learning curve. I have been using Photoshop since 2006, I have had my ups and most certainly downs, especially being self taught for 3 of those 4 years. So how do you go on to become a better artist? Well, for me it is the pursuit of acedemics in the Fine Arts, for others it is a combination of many things such as workshops in conjunction with school. What about the home artist that does not have access to those services? I suppose it is in the study, the study and inspiration that made us all want to be artists in the first place. I am always looking to be better, in technical, creative, and conceptual ways.
