Tip of the Day: Leaps in Learning

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 27, 2012, 11:13 AM
Leaps in learning through my career, always came from working through great frustrating moments. Frustration is just your brain working hard to understand and improve on something difficult to learn. Gotta keep going!

Sending positive vibes to you all!

I really needed this advice right now... :p

I just had a deep drawing crisis, I felt like I wanted to quit drawing!! (it was the worse one). Thankfully I talked with some real friends and they show me that I was just fooling around and made me recover the love I have for this. Now I changed my style and I keep evolving! I really improved after the crisis :)
So just don't give up :)

I absolutely agree!! Whenever I get really frustrated with my art I end up spending days if not weeks looking up tutorials, practicing techniques and analyzing my mistakes. Going up against your shortcomings and emerging victorious is a great feeling!

Everytime I read one of these, I realize, in an instant, that this is just what I need now! :)

agrees..., I'm going through a huge moment of frustrations as we speak due to learning new techniques and looking back on my old ones :D... basically realizing that my early traditional and digital mixing needed either repairs and or to be scrapped all together and completely redone... A lot of work ahead of me and I'm sure in a few more years, or the next big artistic break through, I will have to do it all over again :D... never ending and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those people who don't realize that I learned or picked something up until it actually appears in the next piece I do. It'll be like, "How come I wasn't able to do this the last time!?"

It's still a good surprise though. I've come to refer to those moments as "levelling up". :D

Thanks man, that was relevant to my situation.

I've been out in the industry for about 3 years now and after working a a few rather comfortable jobs (not overly challenging) I find myself slowing to a stand still in my development. the situations been frustrating in its self =___=
