I have been asked on various occasions about tips and tricks with making art. A lot of souls out there so unhappy with the work that they do. I've advice to give, by all means.

Stop. Not your work. No. Stop asking others. Stop asking what makes it work for them. Stop asking what makes them happy. Stop learning about THEM. Stop comparing yourself.

Start. Start doing what makes you think. Start drawing what pushes your buttons. Start making what makes YOU happy. Start your imagination. Start getting sloppy. Start.

A lot of us want recognition. Some of us want to be noticed. Others want to be realized. Few come to that conclusion. You may be disappointed with yourself along the way but you will know the gratification that it was your way. You may be disappointed with yourself in the end if you choose to follow another's.

You're so worried, my dear. I'm worried that you're worried.

If it is not fun for yourself then you may not be working with a medium you find potential desire in. it could be as simple a matter as testing a multitude of equipment if you're working with traditional means such as a different pencils, pens, papers, etc.  Various software and tablets if you're working digitally ( Or even keyboard like myself ). It could also be that you do not find intrigue at all in the production of art altogether. My advice would be to think upon the things that make you happy or make you just think " Yeah, I want to try at that. ". If you like dragons, think on doodling dragons. If you love fish, draw fish. You love squares? Draw squares and put your own spin on them. It's whatever you want.

It's not always going to be about fun. For some art is a means of releasing tension and thought. For others it is challenging themselves to design and keeping to strict conduct. It's about being satisfied with what you can create by your own means, your own desires and your own hands. Most of all however you need to remember that only you can develop your style over time. It's a gradual thing and for some it can mean testing their resolve at times. You may not like what you see but the true test is seeing if you can embrace that challenge and make something of it.
