Tip of the Day: Beginning your day

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 18, 2012, 10:40 AM
Sketch as soon as you wake. You'll always have a good drawing day if you do.
I always found it to be harder to paint if I start painting in the afternoon instead of first thing in the morning.

Sending positive vibes to you all!

PS. Some people have mentioned in the last couple journal entries that I should write a book with advice for artists... I have. It's called "The Perfect Bait." More info here -->

It's the same with me and writing music. If I write in the morning, it's awesome - if it's the afternoon, it seems stagnant and it frustrates me to no end!

This is such a great tip, I never even thought of that. Thank you so much for posting these journals. They're always very helpful. :)

I just got my "The Perfect Bait" copy and it's AWESOME.
Absolutely recommend it to everyone wanting to break through. IT'S A MUST HAVE! (and the free-shipping is fantastic too, making it very affordable to own).

This is the best tip I found in The Perfect Bait. Now I ZBrush before work every day that I can.

It is definitely more difficult to get into a good rhythm later on in the day over starting in the morning!!
