Hello everyone, and happy Saturday! Before I get started, I just wanted to take a brief moment to thank you guys for the support I get on my articles. Thank you for reading them, hearting them, and/or reacting to them. It makes my day when I see that people actually enjoy what I write about, and it also motivates me to write more on WeHeartIt! Also, a HUGE thank you to the WeHeartIt crew for getting my "Favorite Songs From The Decades" article onto the "Article Channel", it really appreciate it. Thank you guys SO MUCH and I LOVE you!! ;) Let's get onto the article now, shall we?

1. Time Management
This is a HUGE part of wanting to create something amazing, so being able to have enough time so that you're not rushed to complete it is crucial. First, either find something on the internet to inspire you, or set time aside to create something original. Whether you find something you'd like to re-create or think of something original, it doesn't matter because this process will be pretty much the same. Once you decide on what to create, try to search through your calendar or wherever you keep your plans/daily tasks, and mark down possible days that you have free time to create it. Then on those days, make sure you have enough hours to work because as an artist, you never know how much time you will need to complete a piece. Also, I wanted to point out something very important when managing your time towards Art: DO NOT TRY TO COMPLETE A PIECE IN ONE DAY. Don't just make that your goal because that will pressure yourself into having to get it done right away. If you struggle with this, try asking yourself the following:

- Do I really need this done at a specific date? (This should be answered as being "no", unless you're creating this for someone else.)
- Am I going to enjoy working on this?
- What is the purpose of creating this?
If you successfully can answer these questions, that may help those who feel obligated to have to only take one day to finish a piece. Here's my opinion: Taking less time to create something amazing probably means that you have made more unrealizable mistakes because of your working pace, but the more time it takes to create something probably means that you are very careful about the mistakes you have made and they were realizable and previously fixed. This, in my opinion, is the most important tip I am giving. It also personally helps me out, too.

2. Creativity
Whether you have found something to re-create or are creating something original, creativity important towards the visual context of the artwork. For example, if you're drawing a person with brown hair, maybe try blending multiple different shades of brown to enhance the highlights and lowlights of the hair that way it doesn't appear "flat" or bland. There are so many different uses of creativity, but it all depends on what you're creating and how you are creating it as the artist. Blending is a very efficient way of enhancing a piece, especially if it's Realism.

3. Organization
I know what you're probably thinking, "But how is THIS a part of creating Art?". Well, allow me to elaborate. Organization can be categorized into multiple effects like structure, color theme, proportion, etc. Organization in a piece of Art allows so that objects aren't just "floating around" or are scattered within the piece. Here's an example: Let's say that you are going to create a painting of a flower garden. Your components of the drawing consist of the flower bushes in the background, a bridge, rows of flowers, and some garden supplies. You first paint the background, then the rows of flowers, but then you realize you forgot to add the garden utensils into the piece. So then you decide to paint over something else, therefore, you risk ruining your piece that you spent countless numbers of minutes on just because you forgot a specific MEANINGFUL detail. Really? Instead, organize how you will incorporate everything. Using this example, try painting the garden supplies FIRST, then the rows of flowers, then the bridge and bushes in the background. See, so much more organized, right? Now starting with the little/smaller details FIRST, IN MOST CASES will allow some "flow" and organization into artwork. Now, I put "in most cases" in all caps because this doesn't always work with every piece being created. You as the artist must figure out and establish the organization of your artwork yourself, but applying this tip will benefit that thinking process.

4. Enjoy What You Are Creating/Positivity
Find or think of something you would love to create Art out of! If you need inspiration, browse online at stuff you are interested in and are passionate about. I do this a lot, and it really helps to gather my thoughts on what I am in the mood to draw at that moment. Once you start creating Art and you realize it's difficult, THAT IS OKAY AND 100% ACCEPTABLE IN THE ART WORLD BEACUSE NOT EVERYTHING YOU CREATE WILL BE/SHOULD BE EASY. Creating more difficult pieces will allow yourself to grow and develop into a more advanced artists at your personal level. C'mon guys, every once and a while an artist needs a good challenge!! :)

Well, that's all!! Those are all 4 of MY tips on creating any kind of artwork. And may I remind everyone that Art is not simple and was never meant to be. Try your best, and as long as you give 100% effort, you will grow. Try new concepts, explore new techniques, and believe me, you will evolve into a better artist. Please note that the examples I use are just made up, and all these tips can be applied to whatever kind of Art you do. Thanks for the support, again, and I LOVE YOU ALL TO THE MOON AND BACK!!!! I'll talk to you guys in my next article!! Bye!!! :)
