Please give me suggestions on how to be a better artist! You can be as harsh as you like, I'm tired of people just saying, "Oh that looks nice." That doesn't help me improve.
I'm in high school and i draw a lot during the school year. During the summer I draw much less because I'm so burned out from the school year. I'm so busy with sports, academics, and art projects during school that I want to enjoy every moment of freedom during summer, even though I train for sports during the summer and every other season.
I really wish i could read more, but I don't know of any good books. If you have any book suggestions please share! I like books like The Other Wes Moore, The God Delusion, The Joy Luck Club, and Born to Run.
