Help for the young artists.

I’ve been on the internet a long time.  I’ve grown as a person and as an artist, to the point where people seem to admire my work.  I’ve seen people struggling with the same mistakes I made as a kid, and I wanted to offer my services in helping out others. 

This is particularly for the young artists and users of the internet, (most of you are younger than me) but hopefully it will help others, too.  If it doesn’t help you artistically, maybe it will help you remember to treat others who were like me kindly.

Future installments should include tips (like how to draw in Photoshop,) but for now, I’d like to show you where my art was when I first started using the internet.

Pretty bad, huh?

This where I am now:

Keep working at your art.

Here is a tip to get you started:

Even if everyone tells you that you’re a good artist, work to get better and accept critique.  CRITIQUE IS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK ON YOU.  Some of you know this, but I had to learn it: focus on making the WORK better.  That will help you separate your emotions from it to the degree necessary to improve.

If you have questions, please let me know and I’ll see if I can help you out.
