The Creative Process:
A big portion of becoming a good artist is learning about the creative process and understanding how it works best for you. Being creative is not easy. Like anything else in life it takes hard work and confidence in oneself. You must be open minded, learn to think "outside the box" and be brave in your attempts to experiment. Its okay to make mistakes, it's okay to try and fail and no matter what you won't please everyone. There are basically no wrong answers, in fact there are multiple solutions, some just work better than others.
