|In art, there is no guide. How do you know what the next step is?
Follow what you love doing – what makes you feel fantastic.
There are certain guides but I believe that rules are made to be broken, in some cases. The next step is to continue to observe and realise we learn by experience and sometime by our mistakes.
As an illustrator I tend to think from what is expected of me rather than what I want to make. That gets confusing at times. But it always bounces back in the 'right' direction.
Personally, I go solely on impulse. I frequently get big ideas and themes that I want to pursue and so I do. I don't think about it too much or I would never produce anything.
You look to your intuition and interests to tell you. It is all inside you, and you have a great internal guidance system that can help you know where to go.
I think that's the trick, to know when youre finished or not. Well I guess that to have time is good, let things rest for a while and then get back to work.
the voices in my head tell me what the next step is
FEEL,HOWEVER ARTISTS ARE MUCH MORE METHODICAL IN THEIR CRAFT THAN MOST PEOPLE THINK.
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND HOW TO TELL L THE STORY WITH A BEGINNING, MIDDLE, AND E
The beautiful thing about creating art is that it should never be monotonous. If it does become monotonous for me I must evaluate where I am going. The next step is always evident to me but not preplanned.
I have no plan only inspiration to finish
The answer to this question varies with each completed piece. On occasion the next step will "appear"; I will "see it" and then complete it. On another occasion the next step will be a grueling process of trial and error "in my minds eye" until the next step is decided upon. In yet another situation, I will put a piece away for a few days and then upon viewing it "anew" the next step will appear easily. Some of my works take as little as one month to complete while others can take up to a year and a half. Each work of art poses its own problems and solutions.
you dont..just put your left foot in front of your right foot
It just happens.
Sure there's a guide! It's called a brief!
I believe artists navigate from one wave to another naturally. You should continue to grow, explore and experience new waves in the art field. Being an artists allows one the luxury of drifting in and out of waves without becoming committed to one dock or another. One must continue to soar above the waves to see possibilities that may occur. If an artist commits to one single birth, there is always the burden of an anchor of some sort! Just go for it!
