Do you feel stuck in a Recycled Art Rut?

There are going to be times in the art journey where we feel like we aren't growing and need to mix it up. We develop these patterns of creation and while it is great for producing more quantity, we often sacrifice creative choices and experimental decisions. In this tutorial I talk about the important of experimenting and why we need to constantly incorporate something new, whether it's a feature or a process that we see another artist using. We grow the most when we are exploring new territory and as an artist is it VITAL to do so. So listen to this lesson and watch as I try new techniques to create a rather colorful piece that reflects experimentation. Tutorial_ImportanceofExperimenting_Steps

Everyday is a rededication. I love nothing more than drawing and helping others deepen their understanding of working with art. I proudly rooted myself in Wisconsin and have worked with CG Cookie for 4 years and started Concept Cookie when I was first brought on. Now I enjoy the weekly livestreams and the community that has built up since.
