is it true, the superstition, that if you have bad handwriting you dont have "artistic giftedness" or arent born being good at art? i have always thought about it, being as i have bad handwriting and no "gift of art." your opinions?
I have astoundingly bad handwriting. And like Chaosrocks, I do not believe in such a thing as being "gifted". Art is a learnable skill. For that matter, so is good handwriting. Pick what you wish to become good at, and invest your time into improving it.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
I don't believe in this either. I know a lot of "artists" who have beautiful (...readable...) handwriting but aren't so great on the art side, and vice versa.
I don't think why one should affect another since it's a whole different motion, at least it seems so to me. For example, my wrists hurt after only ten minutes of writing, but I can draw for hours without experiencing any pain So, uh, that theory is not so true.
