Aspiring artists and professionals a like are suffering from the same syndrome!
its called "wow there are tons of art books out there i might as well (quote unquote) reference my design ...hmmm take a little from Doug Chiang take a little from Ian Mccaig annndd take a little from fabulous Mr. Powers and ...uhh yep and i got my butt pirated copy of photo shop soo that makes me an artist ...syndrome"
ok perhaps i am just venting frustration...
what do you think about this matter?
one cool thing i've realized is i have NOT seen much of this one these boards!
LONG LIVE CREATIVITY!!!
