Wisdom for Artists – Keep at it

No matter what, keep playing around. You might be unhappy with where you or your skills are at in this particular moment, but trust me, if you continue to push yourself and put in quality effort and time, only good will come of it.

As creatives, it's easy to get discouraged—and how could we not with so many amazing artists out there posting amazing work ALL THE TIME. It's important to push yourself, though. And not by others' standards necessarily, but, instead, by your own standards. And with that being said, there is nothing wrong with making goals based on the skill-level of others. Just be aware that you (probably) won't reach that quality overnight. It takes countless hours of intense work, which will only help you to appreciate achieving those goals all the more.
