I visited this beautiful website few months ago, and I had to go back to my school life so I didnt have much time to revisit and update my portfolio. (I worked and done some works tho)
My mock exam finished last month and I was having some time to seriously think about the Art I want to do, and even the University, (Im 16 now) and I faced a problem, and a question.
How should I manage my time on Art?
I mean, i try to work on it every time I have chance, and recently I've been working at least 3~4 hours per day, and I know it's really pity time to practice on Art.
But I'm not even in University, and I have crap loads of other subjects (I'm aiming for UCLA art school) and grades that I have to manage, so I always find myself lack in time to practice art because of all the other things like SAT(Im in british school so I have to work on it myself) and even my grades. I just try to draw everytime I have a chance, but it seems so little.
And I'm starting IB course this year, which can give me some time to work on Art, but it will also keep me from art cuz of other loads of subjects.
Anyway, my question is, that everytime I walk through the websites and I see people working on their Art skills for like 8~12 hours per day. And believe me, it will be my dream to do that, but I really can't afford that. I try to do it everytime I take a break, but sometimes it scares the hell out of me that I'm kinda left all behind in this. Hell, I dont even know how to draw on tablet or sth (i've been an off-line worker).
Do you think it will be best to start focusing my whole daily routine on Art from now, will it be too late if I start that regular 12 hour Art thing after I go to Uni?
I know my question sounds really crap and I look like some lazy ass, but I've been getting straight good grades on other subjects too, so it's kinda hard to just let those go.
I'll accept any harsh criticisim on my attitude, but one thing I want to tell you is that I tried my best to spend most of my free time on Art.
