I will not name names, I will however make an example. I am so tired of this person I knew from years ago. The person did beautiful work, always made it look like Disney because the person does disney fanart. It was dead on. At the time I was HYPER impressed. I had little to no real drawing skills compared to this guy. Years later. I have improved and grown and learned and worked so hard to improve and try different things. I was hoping back when I first saw this person's art that they would continue to improve and have some fantastic work that was not just Disney related and nothing else unique about it. This person made them look like cell shadded stuff that DIsney did. He rarely ever played with lighting or anything else. It just started frustrating me.

I reached out and told him look I'd love to see you challenge yourself. Mayb eyou just need a pep talk, he ignored me. Recently I decided that like another artist hwo does dead on Disney I can't stand watching him anymore. I am using this an example.

I want you guys to undrestand something as artists, you need to grow. If you don't grow and push yourself and just keep trying no matter what happens. Then you'll stand in the same place for years to come. Your art will become predictable. I'm not saying I"m 100% unpredictable. BUT I try new things. I've see artists out there who do beautiful Disney art work. My vent is not against this type of art work you'll see below is what I love!

BUT this person did flat pictures and no matter what it just always felt stiff....and boring it was oh wow now I"m just bored. I'm not naming names or being mean. Please understand. I am encouraging you never to stop learning. It is of course your choice if you want to be that way and not grow but its so much more satisfying to look back and go WOAH! O_O Who drew that 3 years ago! Or last year! O_O WOW! 

If you can't look back and see that in your art and you aren't trying you should start if you are trying and its not improving there are people like myself who are more than happy to teach. I don't charge. Just like I don't charge for my art work, or the DIsney royals. Why is that? Because charing turns it into a job and make the creative process for me impossibly crippled. I just do not like it. You have time frames and people who don't understand how you could do it with your own vision. They just want to see it one way. Which is fine if you want 90% of your art work to be someone elses idea.

So anyways be inspired, be yourself, if you feel comfy charging that is fine. I don't. I just don't it never worked out for me to want to do it.

So below are some inspiring artists who change things up and bring a new light to characters we've all seen before!

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I draw and do digital and traditional pictures, and I am currently working on 2 books. I was for a while against selling my own work because I was concerned that it would cost me my license for creativity. But honestly now I believe that its not going to hurt me to do this. I also need all the extra money I can get to support my terminally ill mother.

I love writing, and drawing, and I even enjoy singing. I have fun in life and I try to help others out as much as I can. I don't need to be 'famous' to be successful or happy. This does not mean I don't have dreams or want to keep drawing and writing and even getting published. But you will find I am not focused on that.

To top it off I am also a Christian! I will be putting up more Bible art so if you love that then look at the gallery!

See you sooN!

Are you enjoying your summer?
