The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.1 I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. So, this is part 1 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (www.taughbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concentrate on drawing instruction for all forms of media.

What if you have no money to pay an artist?As most of you know I have posted a lot of things about the need for artists to be paid for their work, and I do stand by that with 100% belief.What if you have no money to pay an artist? by =dlx-csc
But I have had and seen a few comments made by people asking how they are to get their ideas made if they have no money to pay the artist. Well, there is no one perfect answer. But I will try to cover some ways that it could be done.
1: Know your artist. Really. NOTHING is worse than some random person coming out of nowhere wanting you to do art for free. And don't JUST make friends with an artist expecting something. We can usually tell if you really want to be a friend or if you are in it for something. Just talk to them. Treat them as a real person. Show them respect and interact with them. Most every artist is on social media, follow them. Look for similar interests you share and talk to them. If over time you become friends there is a decent chance they may be willing to help with your project. But know, most of the time pay work is going

About your offer for me to provide my art for you project, where you offer me the wonders of having something 'cool and new' to work on, something I can add to my portfolio, gaining exposure, tell your friends about me, and gaining experience, in place of any actual form of payment. I think I speak for all us artists when I say thank you. Yes, thank you. Why am I thanking you, you ask? Simple. Allow me to explain.
Your offer to work on something 'cool and new'? Wow, how great is this? As you can imagine, as an artist who has studies dozens, if not hundreds of amazing things ranging from books, to shows, to movies, to games, I have never had a single idea of my own. I have sat in a creative vacuum hoping for the day to come where someone would step in and give me an idea of SOMETHING to draw.
Your offer to add your project to my portfolio? Aww, thank you for giving me the right I already have as the actual copyright holder for the art I create tha

I will give out points to galleries that I do certainly enjoy, although, I don't have enough points to do so.
So, I'll be gathering points and hoping that enough would accumulate to allow me to do that
