VIDEO: How To Know You Are On The Right Path With Your Art
There is no worse feeling then doing daily art just to feel stuck when making something new. If you find that you’re self-esteem is down in the dumps and your motivation is flickering, those are warning signs that you are going the wrong direction with your art.
In this hour live stream, I’ll go over my personal happy artist checklist to test to see if you are going in the wrong direction or not. Then we can build ourselves back up with a plan to create the art we were always meant to create.

Repeat your favorite elements you like to include in your dream work

Create at the same time every day when you have the most energy
