How to get rid of ART BLOCKS

Thu Nov 14, 2013, 1:42 AM

Hey guys!! I've had this question a lot so I thought I'd take the time and answer it for everyone. This is what works for me the best, how do you guys do it?

"... how do you guys do it?"
Like nearly 95% of all hobby artists, I procrastinate until it passes. ;P
I've tried taking requests and commissions to help, but it doesn't work so good.

This is the best thing EVER! I'm actually in an art block right now,so thank you for posting this!
Thanks a lot man.  I've been blocked up for a while now and I'm gonna give this a shot.

Thanks again.

You just put everything in perspective man...
once heard a podcast about a mathematician not having a math block so an artist shouldn't have an artblock. Just tackle it and get the results if you're a professional. 
thanks man, great video. I've never linked art block to confidence, it all makes sense now :D

that is SUCH an amazing advise!
it works great :heart:

it's actually so curious the way the human mind works!

for me I kind of get my confidence back also when looking at some master's drawing/painting process, like yours or Feng Zhu's videos about concept design when he shows everything step by step

and it's like realizing all over again that the way they start their pieces is just as simple as the way I start mine, everything looks shapeless and messy and ugly at the beginning, and I am like 'hey this is actually not so impossible or difficult' and the sudden motivation to draw comes back again! haha
