    This worked wonders for me
    Not true. There are still internet forums (like CA) which can be very distracting.

    I never enjoyed Forums.
    I barely enjoy CA.

    And I did say it worked wonders for -me-
    Not -you-

    i think this thread might get more attention if it were stickied under the stickied threads line. i don't know about others, but my eyes tend to slide right over the stickied threads. putting it in bold in the normal thread area would get more eyes to look at it, im sure

    Something that could be worth adding...

    http://www.sidebarnation.com - Sometimes I listen to interviews downloaded from this website and most of them are really inspiring. Especially when artist says how he started or what's his personal approach to drawing/painting.

    James Gurney posted this quote by 19th century artist Arnold Böcklin:

    “Nothing in art is created without effort, and the painter’s ideas don’t come to him on wings while he dreams, either. The one may be more talented than the other, of course; but without untiring diligence, single-mindedness and a combative spirit, there can’t be any good result. All this talk about ‘inspiration’ is nonsense.”
