    I think your work has the potential, but your portfolio isn't ready yet. Art directors look at the worst piece (Macula in this case) in your portfolio to decide how good you are. Do some trimming and...

    Nice improvement lately. I really like the fungus studies. I think you've got the hand down pretty well. I think the pen work is definitely helping you become more confident and thoughtful about...

    When you look at something imagine painting it. Go through all of the steps as if you're really physically doing so. Trace all of the edges/shapes with your eye (use your finger in the air if it...

    That is why an artist needs to learn how to see. Building visual memory is pretty easy, draw everything you look at... in your mind. Spend your spare moments when you don't really have time to paint...

    Keeping art fun is easy... Remove your self-imposed pressure and just try to see and capture the sense of wonder present in the world around you. Also search out a lot of other art to admire, but...

    Personally I believe that talent is a manifestation of intelligence. Highly intelligent people may exhibit multiple expressions of talent, but lack of a manifestation in one area only means a lack of...

    FROZ3N: Are you suggesting the existence of a creative master race? That talent is multi-faceted and extends to all forms of creative endeavors. That if someone is not equally capable in one form of...

    They use your ss# for tax id on their 1099. You could apply for a unique tax id number in the name of a business, so that nobody needs your ss#. I'm not a lawyer (just a freelancer) so don't take...

    I actually wonder sometimes if our perception of talent is like our perception of beauty. The more mainstream or inside the box so to speak the higher it is regarded. It is like the studies they did...

    Having trained at professional level in martial arts under world champions and Olympic coaches, I would say that talent does indeed crossover to sports. You can take two people with the same amount...

    Actually I was referring to a number of people... I tend to agree with your convoluted stance... at least the parts I can make out. Specifically that there is at least currently no proof one way or...

    This thread just keeps getting better. It almost makes me wish I had the time to spend arguing my own take on things. Some of the recent posts have me wondering if people aren't stretching things a...

    It is easier to get to a destination when you follow someone who knows the way, but try getting there without knowing the way and you'll get lost. Study how they get there and why they take the route...

    Just sit down and doodle with no expectations of creating anything wonderful... it'll come. Sometimes we want everything to be great and fear that we can't live up to our own expectations, hence the...

    Must have been some wonderful art to still be looking for him five years later.

    Wow emalin, You're making big progress here. I really like the doll coloring.
    I'm glad you're incorporating more imaginative practice in your routine. To clarify what I said before. I think artists...

    You have some really nice work here! I would encourage you to work more from imagination though.
    Reference can become a serious crutch and can ultimately cripple your creativity. In fact I...

    @emalin: Thank you for taking an interest in my art. You're probably right about the eye symmetry I never noticed it before. I'll be more careful of that in the future!

    I don't really post much...

    People can't wait to tell you if they really like/dislike something. Silence = Indifference. Everyone has doubts about their work from time to time. Don't look to others for validation of your work...

    Stop worrying about messing up. It's better to mess up your idea and at least have something to work with later than it is to never start because you're afraid. Just get things going and use the...

    I'm a strong believer in talent. I think that you still have to work to develop that talent. Two relatively equal talent artists can still have one work harder at developing with the result being...

    Howard Pyle said that painting a person without clothes was like painting a bird without feathers. He was a very successful artist even in his own time, so I reject the premise that nudity is a...

    I think that you're compositions aren't bad, but they could be much stronger by thumbnailing different ideas of the same scene. Also the light sources are a bit confused because you're...
