First, take a look at this new cool piece I made. It´s called... W̷O̷L̷F̷T̷R̷O̷N̷
It took me AN ENTIRE WEEK to finish it !
I had this idea about the process of Art making that: spend a whole one week (in my case, more than 3 days) to finish a personal work is too much.
Since I became interested in Digital Art I took this #SpeedPainting, #WarmUp, #Dailies thing as one of the undeniable truths of our carer.
You know - the need to be relevant, show to people online that you`re active on the game, feed the Social Media monster with more and more content...
That`s Fine and True until a point. With more Experience came some Greater needs like maintaing ourselves Relevant by Quality, not Quantity.
And it's too much non-sense to pursuit quality with #SpeedArt (generic term for any Artwork you do for the doing sake)
You have to put the time on it.
Studies and Practice needs to happen no matter what - but this can`t be the only message an Artist put out there to people.
A Clear Statement demands some polish Thoughts.
What I do is the follow:
On monday I start a blank canvas
and then I keep it open in background on ClipStudioPaint through the day. Every interval I have from Client Work or any hour I can squeeze at night I use to work a bit more on my piece.
What different from my usual approach is that I`m not setting a couple of free days to work JUST on personal stuff.
The chances I`ll be distracted or busy with life on these days are greater - so I took advantage of the days that I`m already producing for client to work on my stuff too.
That's the idea. It's another little brain-hack that you can use to change your habits.
Maybe #SpeedArt IS COMMON among us Digital Artists.
But it's NOT NORMAL if you want to really push your skills and expression of ideas.
Think about it.
