Wisdom for Artists – No Matter What, Try New Things

Don't allow your lack of experience to direct you away from attempting to use new mediums. 

Let's face it, whether you're a professional or not, when you try working with a medium you are unaccustomed to using, you usually aren't very good. That's part of life. Whatever you do, though, don't let this discourage you. If everyone did, art wouldn't exist, and that would suck. Play around, try new things, make some really bad art, and, most importantly, have fun. If you do all of these things and devote yourself, you'll create some pretty cool stuff.
