How to become a successful Digital Artist?

“Art is a talent, somebody has it by birth but for someone, it takes huge hard work to achieve.” In my last blog, I have described a basic overview of How to become a successful Digital Artist?, in this blog I will share my whole thought on it through my Digital Artist journey. I was good at art from my childhood. As far as I remember I was good at drawing from my childhood. I was able to draw the portrait. I drew My grandmother’s portrait at first & it was so good that my parent didn’t believe that I drew it. Also, I was very famous in my class. Friends come to me to make their favorite superhero drawings. & after I made it they used to give me chocolates.

So main thing is, I did not struggle, it was built inside of me. so I can tell that I am blessed with art. It may not happen for all, they should work very hard to be good at art.

How do we practice drawing to be good digital artist?

Look I love drawing, that’s why I always practiced even when I was studying. It may be beside my math copy, I did not leave any space in my study book. It sounds funny, but it is true. There are no alternatives to practice. If you enjoy Drawing it will be fun, if not, it can be frustrating.

I always prefer to draw real objects near to me. It may be various angels of hands, legs, eyes, face, etc. I believe before you jump into a complicated illustration you need to focus on small objects. Don’t forget the combination of all the small objects makes your illustration beautiful. so always focus on small objects and make them beautiful.
