|My Master piece!!|
Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.
Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.
A. Your art does NOT suck.
For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id
DeviantArtist Questionnaire1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
1 year and a half as a deviant but I've been browsing this site since I was in highschool (2010-2011)
2. What does your username mean?
It's my real surname (my real name is Gabriel Picolo but IRL everyone knows me as "Picolo") so it was a very easy choice. It used to be "365DaysofDoodles" but I had to change it since that project ended on 1st January.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Too much overthinking
4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed. I can't draw shit with my left hand :- D
5. What was your first deviation?
The very beginning of the 365 Days of Doodles project. Is it too much of a coincidence if everything started with a cat?

How to draw during 365 days
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
