Indeed, being talented and creative is very rare. But it takes much more than just your talents to become an artist, or rather, a professional artist. There are certain things every artist should know. Let’s explore it now!

Great Art Takes Hard Work

Unless you are very talented to experienced, you cannot expect to complete a piece of great art in just the blink of an eye. Whenever you give up on a painting or drawing, always look back on it. You will then realise that your failure was only because of your unwillingness to sacrifice more time, effort, and concentration for your art.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” — Dwayne Johnson

Sell Yourself

By selling yourself, we are not telling you to sell your dignity and integrity. What we mean is that as an aspiring artist, you will need to hustle, to market your skills and your portfolio. Also, you need to master the art of networking. Just because you are talented does not mean you are going to make it as an artist. In order to showcase your works and get it the recognition that it very well may deserve, a combination of talent and tenacity is required.

Build Relationships

This is a “who you know” business. You need to build real and long lasting relationships with people. Offer helps and supports to people as much as you can. Because you will also need referrals for the paid jobs and opportunities in days to come.

Do Not Burn Bridges

Another tip for you — do not burn bridges. There is nothing worse than insulting someone and then finding yourself in a meeting with that person years later needing something from them. Do not assume that you will not need them forever, the world could be very much smaller than you think.
