PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.Practice by DamaiMikaz
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an
Hi there, and thanks for visiting my DA page. I'm the tipical nerd who's really into anime, manga and games...and little by little, I'm getting better at drawing scenarios and backgrounds *finally*!|
I usually like to draw handsome guys, cute little boys, demons, monsters (/WUT), and fanart, especially if one of the categories mentioned before are involved XDDD....
BTW, as you can see in the stamp below, I'm open for commissions (and also for art trades). But PLEASE, for fuck's sake, READ THIS JOURNAL first:hystericalmellotron.deviantart…. If you ask for disgusting shit and/or cheap prices, them I'll know that you havent't read it, and I'll just ignore ya instead lol. I'm just saying that because a certain guy asked me for drawing weird shit for cheap prices, and kept nagging me to read his fanfic. Blocked the fuck out of him, of course ...but really, for commissions READ THE JOURNAL FIRST!
Hi there peeps...or person...or mr.thin air...or mr.tumbleweed /okayillstop. I've been off from the deviantart...no...from the WHOLE internet for the past few weeks. Because something happened to my computer, and I had to wait till my dad could take it somewhere to fix it. But now it's okay...for now, slow as a turtle, but still functioning. So, if I stop uploading my usual crap, all of a sudden, again, it will be most probably because my computer stopped working again. And I'm pretty much poor and neither me or anyone else that I live with has enough money to buy a new computer, currently. Which leads to me ranting about the most annoying thing I'm dealing with nowadays: poorly done job-interviews.
I've been searching for jobs actively for quite a few months, lately. I went to tons of job interviews and the like, but I can count on my fingers how many actually good, objective interviews I had. Sometimes, I was being interviewed by people even younger than me! And also, they almost always ask about information that's already written on my curriculum, such as:
*Oh so you're 22? And single?*
*Oooh, so you never worked before, and this would be your first job experience...*
They should ask me if I'm a woman and if my name is Cristiane as well, huh? Really. And shit has been so though, that I can't get even a job as a cleaner, because of course a youngster like me, who just wants to help her family and maybe go to a decent college, doesn't want to work and make a few bucks as much as a woman who has already tons of exp and can get a job as a cleaner almost anywhere (in case you're wondering, the ads of this job offer I went to said exp wasn't required...yet they didn't picked a single young woman or man, from the five people they've chosen)
Still trying though, I don't want to be broke, and doing nothing with my like forever y'know. And again: if I stop uploading my usual crap, all of a sudden, again, it will be most probably because my computer stopped working again
