@Rafael-Lewis Thanks. I recognize that so much. Overcoming fear of failure is not easy. But then, we all have to make failures in order to learn. the knowledge of that really helps me to accept, and learn from my failures.
I have found that even when i can not sit and watch the videos (while working on projects) I will be playing them in the background so I can listen into the concepts being discussed to continue to reinforce them in all of my work. So I plan to keep the subscription going!
@Lee-White I know exactly what you mean. I still struggle going from thumnail to color sometimes because I had to use a value that doesnt directly correlate to the color I intended/need because to use the same value in that area created a large unsightly gray mass. It's great to know the struggle is real. Thanks for your input.
It's great to see a few more of you interested. :D @Nor and @Sarah LuAnn welcome!
@SteveYoung Ah interesting. Worth looking into, for sure.
@Leontine Thanks for starting the new thread! I'm thinking it might be best to have like, a baseline goal of one assignment per week for everyone who choses to participate, and then we can meet or surpass that depending on how much time we have to dedicate. If you'd like to do 4 assignments in a week, then awesome! I can probably pull that off some weeks for sure. I'll give it a try!
My only suggestion is that you should buy the 19", i got the greatest and I only use the pencil on the center or right part of the screen, yiynova offers good quality/prize, it's not worse than cintiqs (I've used cintiq at uni)
Even with money cintiqs are not worth it, probably you have better priorities to do with 2k bucks than buying a sighly better tablet-monitor :P
@Jake-Parker Wonderful video. Thank you so much for sharing it and for pointing to your youtube channel here in the forums. I ended up listening to several of them while I painted this morning.
Here are my preliminary thoughts on my manifesto:
What do you want to accomplish in life?
I want to guide and support my son as he grows, so that he can become his best self. I want to become more fully who I am (and not who I've felt I should be), so that I can model for him the value of listening to his own inner voice. And I want to create art that speaks to that same value. I would love to some day illustrate a picture book that connects with a kid who needs that message of self-love, just at the moment when they need it most.
What do you like to do?
I like to day dream. I like to garden and to kneel down and get a bug's-eye-view of the plants, especially first thing in the morning. There's so much going on in there that we usually miss. I like to walk in the fog on cold evenings and see the warm light shining from my neighbor's houses. I like to watch people and sketch people.
What are you really good at doing?
I'm good at learning new things. I'm good at catching moments of awe and beauty in the world around me.
And I'll have to think more about how that all comes together into a personal manifesto. This is a great jumping-off point. Thanks Jake!
