Lessons Learned: Wrap UpAdvice
For the first week we focused on Advice and how valuable it is (or isn't)! We talked about advice we don't agree with, advice we have ignored, and advice we would personally give. Some pieces of advice given include:
If someone critiques your work, don't get insulted - constructive critique can really help a new artist! but also don't be afraid to disagree - people comment on different things, and some are a matter of opinion.
My first piece of advice would be to always think about what you are going to do before you start it : I have a tendency to rush when I find a stock image that inspires me or when I get an idea and most of the time it ends up in a work I cannot finish. No need to rush, it will make you waste time !
MippieArt's response to a piece of advice that is overrated:
Mmm, hard to say. I think it would probably be people who say that just do what you love doing and everyt

Hello Crystal! Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a married, stay-at-home mom of a beautiful 2yr old girl. I was born and raised in Texas, and still call it home. I spend most of my days taking care of my daughter and our home. During times my daughter is napping or finds herself occupied, I enjoy creating my art.
I am endlessly fascinated by the fact you use an iPad to create your art. Have you always used your iPad?
I've only been editing and manipulating photos for about a year now. I actually started off attempting to edit using my Android phone. After a couple of weeks of attempting, my husband bought my iPad for me. Apple does have great apps for editing. You can get apps for masking, layering, adjusting color details, applying filters and finishes, adding lighting effects, and painting (which I'm still learning how to do). Whatever you are trying to do, there's probab

Tools of the Trade: Helpful HardwarePen Tablets
Pen tablets are probably one of the most sought after pieces of hardware among the digital artist crowd. And while you would be highly mistaken if you think that a pen tablet will instantly make you an amazing artist, it is a very handy tool. I personally use one, and while it took me a good year and a half to actually use it after I bought it, once I began using it I loved it.
Huion 8 ExpressKey 10 x 6 Inches Graphics Drawing Tablet
Price: $55.97 on Amazon

Size: 10'' x 6''
I am extremely intrigued by this tablet. 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, 8 expresskeys and 16 User-defined Keys that are all customizable, medium sized, a more than affordable price, and a little pen holder that looks mighty familiar. It seems to be a more a

Tools of the Trade: Choosing StockWhat to Look For
When it comes to stock images there is no better time to be picky. With both free and purchased stock, be discerning. Once you start being picky about what stock you use, and even better when you start using premium stock, you will notice your quality of work will increase a significant amount. Better ingredients means better results.
You want a crisp clear image with a very very low amount of noise, no motion blur caused by a shaky camera, and completely no artificial effects and edits. Noise is the most common issue, but also the easiest to deal with (to an extent) as long as the image is a good size. Which brings us to our next quality to look for.
The bigger the better. The bigger it is the easier it is to add details, fix defects, and overall just a million times easier to work with. In fact, unless you are a 100% web only hobbyist low resolution images are basically unusable. There is nothing
5 Tips From Me to YouTo be taken for what it is - ramblings of a weirdo. A weirdo with a heart of gold, and good intentions.
Look for Inspiration Outside of Your Medium
One of the biggest mistakes I see is people only gathering inspiration from art made out of their own medium. Admiring your fellow -insert artist type here- is fine of course, but make sure to mix in a slew of other sources as well. This will help keep your art unique and fresh and help you steer away from trends.
My personal inspiration tends to come from digital and oil painters, fashion photographers, movies and my favorite: people watching.
Don't Blame Your Equipment, or Lack there Of
This has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. The artist that blames their equipment or the fact they don't have what they "need". "If I just had -this- then I would be sooo much better! ...But I don't so oh well". I can not stand this line of thought. It's pure poison. Rotting the m

To love or to adore?......Or both?What can someone say about children? What can someone say about innocence and beauty?..A child can paint your day with so many colours. A child can talk with you and you think that you live in a different world. A child can sing to you and you feel as if you have returned to your childhood. A child can bring you a bag of laughter and give it all to you. A child can make you believe that there is still hope for the best, that there is still time to go for your dreams and fight for the people you love..
Art speaks for itself.....Enjoy.... :iconwhiteroseplz:
