    Good advice is hard to come by. I was thinking, maybe we could start a thread that's a collection of good first hand experiences and advice that everyone could share and learn from.

    The best drawing advice I ever got was:

    Quote:
    "Draw for 10 minutes a day, every day" ~Rick Cortes(a close friend of mine)


    it's actually a nice piece of advice because most people say "practice, practice, practice". --all of us know we should practice. But "practice" is such and elusive way to say it. What does "practice" involve? Rick basically defined practice by setting an easily met goal and a schedule.

    The Goal: Draw for 10 minutes. That's easy to do.
    The Schedule: Once A Day. That's easy if it's only 10 minutes.
    The Result: if I'm having a bad day, I draw for 10 minutes, and then do something else. If I'm having a good day, that 10 minutes will turn into 20minutes, or an hour of fun productive drawing.

    I actually tried to draw for 1 hour a day and it backfired horribly. It quickly feels like work, especially on days that you're just not in the mood to draw. I ended up Not drawing for weeks on end because I didn't want to sit down and commit to a whole hour of drawing.

    10min/day. Wise Words.

    heres some advice.. the time you spend on the internet jacking off to porno, and posting asshat topics, instead could be spent on working on your tag, straight letters, and piece book.

    The best advice I ever got was to stop writing. I didn't
    listen, but it could have saved me alot of effort.
