I've been getting confused on the "How to get to be a really awesome and competitive artist."
So I decided that I've sacrificed all my video gaming and watching telly habits; Anything that gets in the way.
I've been reading, browsing, searching for solid theories. But I worry if that is taking over on my more practical exercises. I usually take too long and end up trying to get my drawings done by the last minute.
All this makes my schedule very capricious and unpredictable. When I practice, I study. When I study, I practice. I don't know which ones going to take over. There's numerous times when reading and studying has helped me immensely. I also know that just practising them also helps.
I've Read, from "Harley Browns Inspiration for every artist", That there was this Art student working his ass off every hour in his younger art school years. But this student nether made any progress and kept working on this "Boring style" he had, As Harley describes. I know I've learned a lot from that.
There are people here that practice 12 hours a day on making art. That makes me worry if I've not been working hard enough.
It is typed, the ideal balance is 20 percent reading and 80 percent doing. If so, how do I keep the balence?
