Top 5 Reasons Perfectly Talented Artists Burn Out

:iconillastrat:
illastrat Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
5.) They don't take breaks -- Usually the ones that think art is an iron-man contest burn out in quality and subject matter. Take a break ya'll. That'll give you time to let the juices flow.

4.) They look at too much art -- This is counter-intuitive. People think if you look at the most art that you get better. But actually it is experiencing other art forms like poetry, movies, photography, and music that allow you to become inspired. Looking at other peoples drawings and paintings just make you uncreative and a "biter."

3.) They hate on other artists -- If you hate artists they will not help you out with different techniques. Hence you will not grow.

2.) They become uninspired and too good at a young age -- There's a thing called being too good for your own good. These people are the ones that are mind-blowing at a young age but then they stall out at 30ish. This is a recorded phenomenon for what ever reason. You prodigies paint with so much passion that they lose steam before they can even make a name for themselves. Its very sad.

1.) They use drugs -- This is the elephant in the room. Drugs are said to help with creativity but guess what? They lead to destitution, poverty and death. Drugs have forced many people PERMANENTLY burn out and DIE. There is nothing in drugs. case close.

OMG you're right, it looks a lot like his style, if it was executed well. I'm not into that color scheme/style generally, but the artist you shared was pretty nice.

But that post wasn't for you ~illastrat. You know why there is no Pina Colada for you.
Reply
:iconmurphysdinnerparty:
MurphysDinnerParty Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
My recipe for the awesome Pina Colada I just made myself:

Pineapple coconut rum
Cream of coconut
Coconut milk (no, this is not a replacement for cream of coconut, get both. And get a good, organic brand)
Ice
4 or 5 slices of pineapple (pineapple juice is lame, use the real pineapple)

Put it in a blender, make sure you have an equal amount of everything sans the pineapple coconut rum. Add pineapple coconut rum in a generous amount, an amount that is good enough to make you drunk, no two or three shot shit adding. Blend, put a big ass piece of pineapple on the motherfucking glass and enjoy.

I think he/she was trying to make a point on some people on DA? But it doesn't come across as a valid complaint. And if those are points based on you, then you need to die right now.

So you fucked every living creature in the maternity ward with a big, rubber dick?

I don't know why you're sharing that here, but whatever floats your sick, demented boat I guess. I still don't know why you felt the need to start that high speed jet ski chase afterward. Not everything in life needs an action sequence, you know.
