Tantowi grew up drawing and designing. Now she makes videos for a living and loves every second of it.
From my experiences in the art world, I learned how to make art like drawing, painting or other artwork better and take it to the next level. I remember wondering when I was a young art student, "Is my job good enough?". Somewhat doubting myself because I don't know if my drawing is good or not. I have always been passionate about my art, but I might also be a little annoyed by it, which may seem odd. In the past, I had difficulty improving my technique and style. As a result of my experiences in the art world, I learned how to make art like drawing, painting or other artwork better and to take it to the next level.
Before we continue to get started with these tips, let me make one thing clear. This article is not for you if your short-term goal is only to sell as many artworks as possible. But if you are doing this for the love of art and you want to create something that has a true impact on other artists, then this article is for you, my friend. I firmly believe that art is a self-feeder if you set it up the right way. As your art makes a real impact in the world, you will be amazed at how great it is.
Being an artist is a very hard thing. Not only are you trying to make money, but you also want to get recognized for your skills. There are many ways for artists to take their talent to the next level and get the recognition they deserve. Every artist has a vision, a picture inside of their head, and they want to share that with the world. Whether that’s through music, photography, drawing, or even writing. Sharing your art isn't enough. You want to be successful, and nothing is more frustrating than your work going unnoticed. Here are ways I help my artists in every way to reach their full potential.
Set Aside Time for Creating Art, No Matter What It Is
If you are serious about creating, then one of the most important things you can do is set aside time for creating. Choose a specific time each week (or even day) to create. It could be 10 minutes on your lunch break, or it could be 10 minutes on your commute to work. If you find yourself video chatting or emailing with people while on the computer, try scheduling time during that time to work on your art. If you find yourself staring at the screen without actually doing anything, then it probably means you aren't taking your art seriously enough.
Most people create art for no reason other than they have an idea in their head and they want to share it with the world. Every successful person I know makes time for creating. Sometimes they get into regular productivity mode, stay focused and productive for a few hours each day, and then go out and do something fun. Sometimes they set aside their morning routine and go straight to creating. No matter what you're doing, whether it's relaxing or working you need time to think deeply about what you're doing. Be specific about where you want the time to be spent and when you want it to be done.
Work Through the Bumps and the Bad Days
Making art is a process that helps people overcome challenges and grow as artists. Sometimes it's hard to take the right steps, especially when things don't go well. You can avoid frustration by working on small things that will pay off in the long run. It has been scientifically proven that working through the bumps produces the best results.
Art is a journey, not a destination. You can take as long or short as you need to get there. Some days are better than others, but the key is to keep moving forward. When you feel good, notice those things. Continue pushing through the obstacles until they give way. A small step can often lead to a life-changing experience that sets you on a new path.
Sometimes life gets in the way of your dreams. Whether that's because life has other plans for you or because things just don't work out as planned, it doesn't matter. Work through your bumps in the road and don't let them hold you back from reaching your goals. You'll feel great about yourself when you finally reach them and you'll have more energy to do the things that matter in life.
Find a Group of People Who Can Give You Honest Feedback
As an artist, it is hard to know whether your art is any good or not. There is very little truth in most conversations about art. What we say and think about our art (and the art of others) is often overly positive. Getting outside honest feedback from others can be extremely helpful, both in terms of giving you a true evaluation of what works and what doesn’t work with your art, as well as motivating you to put some work into developing your skills further.
Art is like an addiction. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people get more out of it than others. You have to find a way to balance the good times and bad times, and sometimes that means finding trusted friends or mentors who can give you honest feedback. It's easy to be disappointed with your art when things don't go as planned or you don't have the inspiration to develop it further.
Let's face it, sometimes life gets in the way of art. Before you start sharing your artworks on a social media platform, it's important to discover whether there are other artists in your community who might benefit from your postings. It's a good idea to find people who share your artistic interests and backgrounds, as well as those who have reached a similar high point in their careers. Whatever the case may be, it's important not to give up on your art because of poor results or small setbacks. Keep pushing through and you will find your next masterpiece.
No matter if you’re painting, drawing, writing, or music-making there are certain aspects of creativity that can bring joy and fulfillment. Art is supposed to be fun, so do it because you want to and it makes you happier. Mainstream life doesn’t make sense without some sort of fun in it, and there’s nothing more enjoyable than creating art. It makes it easier for us to view the world around us with fresh eyes and new perspectives. If you’re doing something that you enjoy, there is less chance that you will give up when things get hard. Instead of giving up, keep going. It may not always be easy, but once you give in a little bit, it will be worth it in the end.
When you do something you enjoy, you are more likely to be happier than if you were doing something for no reason at all. While it keeps you curious and engaged, it doesn't make you feel like you've given up. It might not make you rich, but it will make you happy. The most important thing is that it makes you feel alive. We sometimes fail to realize how much of our day is spent doing things we don't enjoy because we have to pretend it's meaningful or important. This sacrifice is made because we feel compelled to do something for the sake of gaining an earning or social status boost. The question is: is this activity worth what it takes on your edge? Skip it if it's just worth it because others are doing it. You should do it if it will make you feel better about yourself. Trying to figure out if it's fun or not? Being able to enjoy yourself again is the first step.
The word "fun" can mean many things to many people. "Fun" to me means inspiration, fulfillment, knowledge, and fun in that order. In my mind, art can be seen as a form of exercise or a healthy lifestyle choice. It's rare to see people walking around without caring about their looks, yet everyday people seem to enjoy their lives more when they are in shape. When it comes to enjoying art, the same thing happens. It's rare to see people smiling or having fun daily, but when you are looking at art, you feel better about yourself.
Find Areas in Your Life to Eliminate Negative Influences
One of the most effective ways to take your art to the next level is to eliminate or minimize the influence of negative people in your life. Negative influences can control how you think, feel, and express yourself. If you find yourself surrounded by people who annoy you or underachieve, reduce the number of people in your life who help you by pointing out their mistakes and shortcomings. You will find yourself motivated to achieve great things more often because you have a clear sense of boundaries.
One of the most effective ways to take your art to the next level is to eliminate or minimize the influence of people who are likely to hold you back. To do this, you need to be proactive and make a conscious effort to limit the people in your life who are holding you back. This doesn't mean you have to like it when people try to keep you down, but just understand that it's necessary to reach your full potential.
There are many negative influences in the art world. People have an impact on your ability to recognize what's good and bad about yourself. By taking a close look at your behavior, you can eliminate these negative influences. Is your thinking based on belief or fact? Are your emotions driven by love or by hate? It's time to rediscover what's truly important in life and work. The best way to do this is to identify areas in your life where you're focusing on achieving more than you're enjoying. In the end, everything will be fine if you stop there rather than dealing with the real heartbreak that is going on in your life.
Look for Ways to Tell a Story with Your Art
Look for ways to tell a story with your art. Tell a short story in your art and make the viewer ask questions about it. Even if the work is just a photo, drawing or painting, try selecting a scene and focusing on something related to it. When you're done and look at your finished piece, look for places where you could have added more details or atmosphere. These are storytelling techniques that will help make your artwork more engaging and help build a stronger connection with your audience.
There are many ways to tell a story in art, both for narrative and personalization. Information can be presented through larger images or narrative pieces that elucidate a conflict or situation. There are several ways to engage the viewer's attention and evoke an emotional reaction. Storytelling relies heavily on visualization to convey information effectively. Storytelling is so valuable in art because it works both on the front and back ends of the process: it engages the viewer while drawing attention to the artwork already around them.
Telling stories is the essence of art. It transports you to a different place, time or reality. Whether you're looking at a painting or a sculpture, the experience is more vivid when the artist uses a limited perspective to create an effect that's both extraordinary and truly memorable. Creating parallel stories in your mind that play out simultaneously is the best way to tell a story. Consider these three questions as you view the work. Where did the idea come from? What brought me to this point? What do I hope will happen next? Be sure you are answering these questions based on your understanding of the piece, and not just by stating facts about it.
Allow Your Art to Move You Deep Inside
Sometimes art is simply about expression. You can express love, anger, sadness, joy, or any other feeling through an image. However, sometimes art can take on a life of its own and inspire people to create and spread positive energy throughout the world.
The universe is filled with beautiful things. And sometimes, when you look at them carefully, you can make out features that aren't there. This is where art becomes personal. Your perception of the world is just as important as the quality of what you see. Art is something you can allow to move you to deeper levels of concentration, as it helps point out things you'd never otherwise see. You can become more reflective, creative, inspired, and more fulfilled when using art as an outlet for self-reflection. When you allow your art to move you in these ways, it can be extremely powerful. Sometimes the most simple and obvious ideas can lead us to profound truths about ourselves. Allow yourself to be inspired by the work of brilliant visual artists like Andy Warhol is the perfect example of something that helps you see things differently and brings you joy.
My biggest piece of advice would be to just keep going no matter how far you get with your art. Don't stop because people won't understand or respect what you're doing. Also, don't get discouraged if things don't always go as planned.
Art is defined as a skill, some sort of mastery. If you are an artist, then you have to be an expert. This means that art is not just amusement or entertainment. Almost every kind of art requires hard work to be the best. Art is defined as a skill, some sort of mastery. If you are an artist, then you have to be an expert. This means that art is not just amusement or entertainment. Stories, passion, and imagination play an important role in the creation of meaningful art.
