Struggling [to be] a[n] artist

{13 February 2011}   Growing

This was posted by some alumni: On Why too much help stunts your growth by Kevin Johnstone. I have a habit of posting asking for people on help or knowledge of good tutorials on how to do something. I would also like to argue, however, that if I don’t know if the damn thing exists then how am I suppose to play with it? There are so many programs out there to do any number of things, that it can get over whelming to keep up or know how they all work. There could also be some unknown tutorial that someone else stumbled across that you won’t find on your own.

But you still need to try going on your own. Just go build the whole thing and see how it works, then figure out why it doesn’t work, (or if you can, show it to someone and ask what can be improved or what’s going wrong) Then once you learn the tips and tricks, write it down and practice it over and over (which I must admit I am terrible at doing).

I’d also like to argue that someone could being doing something in 7 steps that can be done in two or three, and you’ve never know because it works and never had thought of another way it could be done. Note comparing is important and other than asking someone how they do it, I don’t know how else you would know.

Regardless, you won’t learn anything if you don’t get you hands dirty.
