5 Tips From Me to YouTo be taken for what it is - ramblings of a weirdo. A weirdo with a heart of gold, and good intentions.5 Tips From Me to You by AbbeyMarie
Look for Inspiration Outside of Your Medium
One of the biggest mistakes I see is people only gathering inspiration from art made out of their own medium. Admiring your fellow -insert artist type here- is fine of course, but make sure to mix in a slew of other sources as well. This will help keep your art unique and fresh and help you steer away from trends.
