My recent & inspiring journals

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artists
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating? 
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.  :) (Smile) 
1. Priorities
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between
Inspiration: youtube artists (part 2)Dear, deviantart fellow artists
Here is the second journal post of some of my favorite youtube artists, (check also the 1st part) that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.  :) (Smile) 
Will Terrell
Amazing channel by Will Terrell (willterrell) , who is a cartoonist and his video series : people sketching are so fun to watch and they are full of great advice on art and life. 
Mark Crilley
Mark Crilley ( markcrilley ) is an American manga creator and children's book author/illustrator. His how-to-draw videos are so great and lovely - from manga & anime styles to highly detailed photorea
Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us. 
But we have to stay strong and continue. 
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.  :) (Smile) 
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;
10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artists
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.  :) (Smile) 
1. Make art with your heart 
    Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks. 
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once
