Talent is a myth.

Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.

Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.


@luka Good question! 3 things:

1) Take it slow. Start with 10min every day and only increase time when you're able to sustain 10 for an extended time and are used to it (~30 days w/out break).

2) Routine. Set a fixed point in your day, e.g. right after getting up, that is reserved for art/whatever every single day. Nothing else can touch that time slot.

3) Accountability. Post every day or send something to a friend every day, no matter how bad, to ensure you actually do it. :)
