MR Advice Anthology
« on: August 22, 2018, 03:17:20 PM »
As usual, no idea if I'm in the right place. orz

basically a carry on from the topic I just made here

Quote from: me
In fact, I think an MR Advice Anthology would be a great item to have, especially with a bunch of before and after pictures of artwork from our own members, and a quote paragraph from them with their personal struggles and advice. I think we could all use a boost at times.

I was thinking that having a thread or a digital file with a compilation of encouraging comments and advice from our artists (and maybe writers I don't know) would be a great thing to have for newer artists just starting out, as well as those who get discouraged easily, as well as those who keep going but can't see an end to the level grinding. It can also be a tiny bit of self-advertising if you want to link to your DA or similar. So it's mainly for us, but for anyone else who visits as well.

I'm thinking to have this thread for a general discussion of the idea, and maybe a separate thread for "actual comments", or just post them here along with the discussion with maybe a google document that I update myself with the comments and pictures.

So stuff to say if you have no idea what I am talking about
  • A bit about yourself, how long you have been drawing etc.
  • Your struggles as an artist (+how you managed to deal with them, or how you currently deal with them)
  • What you learnt that noone told you, or was unexpected
  • Your advice to beginner artists
  • Your advice to intermediate artists
  • Your own progress of art (comparison meme etc)(year by year or just really old vs. really new)
  • What are your goals for the future? have they changed from when you started drawing?
  • Your credits, the name you want to sign as, as well as any DA links you want to add (I want to keep it unobtrusive as it's not the purpose, but keep the sense that we are real people and we exist and here we are feeling)

This is just a seedling of an idea, so I am completely open to suggestion on how to format and what to add/remove/change.

Since there is no particular deadline on this, it can probably permanently stay open and we just keep adding to it over time, but really I'd like to have something tangible within 4-6 months.

Let me know what you think  ;D
