I'm thinking about going to art school, and I want to make a portfolio with some really good stuff in it. Any advice on this matter? (The picture is my work, but not at all my best, just whatever was laying around.)
Advice: Keep trying, no matter what. Keep trying, even when most people would give up. Keep trying when everybody laughs at you, and feel vulnerable and afraid. Keep trying when you realize you could've just went to medical school and never have to worry about money. Practice everyday. You might only get +0.000001%, then yesterday, but that's 10000000000x better than not practicing at all. Can you dig it?
It's those who kept trying who got super fucking good, not the ones who were born with some kind of genetic gift to be amazing at every art form and they have an IQ of 179, and they drank the bath water of Leonardo Da Vinci or some shit.
Also, I think you're a good artist so far. You already have a great background, I can tell you've got talent.
This is advice from someone who isn't necessarily talented, but I am extremely passionate about my work and I try my hardest, because when I do just 0.000001% better than yesterday, I feel like I am not a complete waste of resources, oxygen, and water.
Though, if I were you, I would really think about what you want. Think about where you see your self in a couple of years, or wherever your decisions may take you. If you love art enough and you can see yourself dumping literally countless hours into improving, then go for it. But more than anything, the real reward for pursuing art is self-satisfaction. Which is something that not many things in life give. Art is something you can never cheat. In the end, it's all based on if you are satisfied with yourself. If you have that, then screw money.
