Drawing just takes time and practice. Anyone can do it with enough practice and the ability to trick yourself into right brain mode (----> There's a book called "Drawing on the Right Side of Your Brain" and I highly recommend it)
I have a theory about style, it's both something you work hard to achieve, and your innate natural inclinations.
But a key element with any artist is the ability to visualize the end result before you start. Everybody goes about this differently, but unless you're a portrait or landscape painter... It won't cut it in this business. You gotta start with SOMETHING, even if it's just an idea.
The problem is people need to realize what creativity IS. It's not something that comes out of thin air!!! Anyone who's creative will get INSPIRED, and INSPIRATION STARTS OUTSIDE THE SELF. YOU CAN'T MAKE ART OUR OF THIN AIR!!! YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE!!! It doesn't matter what it is, but everything we do on this earth, every "AH HA!" moment, was triggered in our heads by something else, usually from something completely off topic.
So when people who don't use their creative minds for art like to judge it, and they tell me how uncreative bland and pedestrian this thing is that I poured my heart into. And I just want to scream "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT CREATIVITY IS!!!!"
Because creativity doesn't necessarily mean inventive. It means your brains was actively engaged and excited and working hard to make something, even if it isn't something "New". But the best artists will be both creative and inventive at the same time. I try!
And so this is how I justify my re-making my Cloud and loving to do it
And I defy anyone to say I'm being "uncreative" Because well... I'll be creating something! even if it isn't new... And, as an added bonus---> You guys's will love it!
