So you want to become an artist? You are not alone. Many people in the world right now want to be artists. Many more will want to be artist in the future. As an artist yourself, you can choose which direction your art will take. There are many types of art forms that you can try out, but no matter what kind of art you choose, there are some things that will be required for you to be successful in your career as an artist.

TIP! As an artist, one of the first steps you will need to take is to develop a portfolio. Your portfolio will include drawings and examples of any other work that you have done that is artistic. It is important for this portfolio to really show off your skills as an artist so when someone is looking at it they can see how good you are and know how talented you are. This portfolio will also look good if you decide to apply for jobs or try to get into a college where they have their own art school.*

TIP! Another thing that artists need to do is find a place where they can practice their art form. This could be a local community college or it could even be your own backyard or living room if that space works for what you want to create.*


Being an artist is not easy. It takes a lot of training and practice. But it is possible to become one through hard work and dedication.

To become an artist, everyone has to start as a beginner, just like everyone has to start as a child. Everyone who becomes an artist did not start out being one. They learned on their own how to draw, paint, sculpt and do other artistic things.

And it is important for people who want to learn how to draw and be an artist that they learn the correct way of doing things. The wrong way will only cause frustration and the desire to give up.

There are some things you will need if you want to become an artist: good drawing paper or sketchbook, pencils and any other art mediums you wish to use (i.e., colored pencils or pastels), erasers, graphite powder, charcoal or chalk, a ruler, pencil sharpener and paper cutter (optional).

An artist is someone who has mastered the basics of his craft and strives to improve his or her skills. There are lots of different types of artists and it’s important to identify which one you are most interested in being before you even decide to become an artist.

The first thing you need to do is figure out what type of artist you want to be. Do you want to draw comic books, create computer graphics, paint, sculpt? Don’t pick something too narrow or too broad. If you pick something too narrow, then your chances of success will be very limited because there aren’t many people who can make a living at a very specific style or technique. If you pick something too broad, then your chances of success will also be limited because there just won’t be as many people who will be interested in your art.

As an example, if you decide that you want to create computer graphics for video games and movies , then your market is pretty much limited to working with video game companies or movie companies. But if you decide that your goal is to create computer graphics for television commercials , then you will have a much larger market because there are a lot more companies that need graphic artists for their commercials than for their games and movies.

The artist is different from other people.

An artist is someone who can get up in the morning and spend the day doing what he loves, and even make a living at it.

The ability to do this depends not on luck but on skill. And skill comes from hard work and study.

The main thing an artist must learn is how to develop his own style. The way you do this is by drawing a lot of pictures, trying different ways of seeing things, thinking about what you are doing, and trying again.

I was asked to make a list of techniques I used to learn how to draw. I realized that it was more than just a list of techniques, it was in fact a way of life and a philosophy. So, I decided to write an essay on how I learned how to draw.

Here is my own story:

As a child, I had always enjoyed drawing. But when I reached high school and college, I decided that I wanted to paint instead. This led me to making art every day for four years. It didn’t work out very well. But as someone who had been drawing as a hobby all my life, this wasn’t too surprising or discouraging. It was sort of expected.

To find out if there was another way to learn how to draw that could avoid these problems, I looked back at all the art books in the library and read them cover-to-cover. Then, through trial and error, I began to combine what they said into what eventually became my own ideas on the subject.

Artists are some of the most creative people in our society. The creativity of the artist is drawn from their own inspiration, the world around them and the emotions they feel. The art created can be in many different forms, from paintings to sculptures to music.

Art is about self-expression and self-identity – it is a way for an artist to express their true identity, feelings and meaning of their own life. It is also a way for artists to make a living – some successful artists gain fame through their work and become financially wealthy.

Art can be seen as a way of life; an artist must live and breathe art if they are to be successful.

The road to being an artist, however, can seem long and hard. Many aspiring artists give up after finding that they cannot cope with the challenges they face. This article is designed to help aspiring artists on their way towards becoming successful and well-known; helping them identify the skills required to become a famous artist.*

The fact is that you have been living a life of lies. You have been telling yourself and others that you are “I”.

You are not “I”, you are “we”. You are born out of many people, thoughts, ideas and emotions. Think back to the first time you saw an elephant or climbed a tree or fell in love. When you experienced these things it was not because YOU experienced them. It was because “you” were the sum of your experiences, ideas and interactions with others. It’s not about what language you speak or what color your skin is. It’s about how much diversity there is in your world view and how bravely you embrace it.

The truth is that if you do not embrace your diversity then it will become the source of your suffering. The only reason we humans can’t seem to get along with each other is because we can’t imagine that someone whose background is different from ours might have something valuable to say or offer us. We think our own life experience must be everybody’s reality too so we try to make everyone fit into our preconceived notions about them. That’s when all the trouble starts: violence, anger, guilt, shame, sadness and grief. Instead of embracing our differences we force everyone else to conform
