I'm sorta digging for motivation today (it's been a pretty brutal week here) so I thought I'd ask people about some of their learning success stories, so to speak. Was there any sort of defining lesson or critique from another artist (perhaps even non artist?) that really flipped things around for you in a positive way?
Perhaps an amazing critique, a new philosophy, somebody telling you to squint with one eye and jump around a lil between brush strokes - whatever. Just interested in hearing some good positive stories instead of "I suck at life" posts.
Anybody got anything like that stored away in their memories? I just can't imagine with the level of skill and experience in this forum that there aren't neat experiences tucked away in there somewhere
