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!
Bobby

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 --> www.theperfectbait.com

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!

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).
:D

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!!

Interesting. You should turn that book into a corresponding iPod app/audio book too! ;)

Thanks for the book and the vibes all the time!

Haha! I was being sarcastic in my last post. I bought the app a couple weeks ago. Thanks for the link though.
