There is no wrong in arts1:24 PM
You only have people offering their opinion and making or braking your artistry. That is their problem, not yours.
Sure, most artists will go take some classes, some even have a diploma in visual arts. But they only learned their basics so they can break the rules better
Pablo Picasso once said:
"Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist"
I think we can all agree, wether we like his work or not, that he broke every rules there were to break to give us some of the craziest and funkiest art of the 20th century. He influenced many others to break the rules even further, like Salvador Dali.
Picasso also said:
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up"
He was right. Children do not restrict themselves to what they see when they draw. They don't care about proportions, composition, or colour balance. They couldn't care less about form either.
They draw what they feel, they let it all come from the heart, without a filter.
Many visual arts "experts" will even agree that children instinctively produce the best work of contemporary art. Kids don't overthink, they are too busy DOING. They are fearless, they don't look for approval when they draw, not until the system breaks them into conforming that is.
There is no right or wrong in arts. The limits are only the ones you created in your own mind. A sheep with spider legs, a blob for a snake, a scribble of red to represent a traffic jam or a cockroach eating a skyscraper...if you can imagine it, you can draw it.
People claim they can't draw, that they suck at painting. This is the biggest lie ever. We can all hold a pencil and doodle. If you persuaded yourself that you can't make art, it is only because you listened to the wrong people and accepted their judgement as truth. What do they know? What makes them the boss of you? Why do you give them so much control over your own right to expression? What is it that you fear?
Fear is what stop people from making art. Fear of not conforming to a standard, to live out of the box. Fear of judgment, fear of not being appreciated. Fear of looking over the edge of the world. Fear of the unknown.
Art is about going beyond borders, beyond perception. It's about taking the world in your hands and giving it back anew, with your own mark on it. If you'd rather have a pink sun setting over a yellow sea, it's not wrong, it's art.
A solar system looking like a string of beads and more than one planet Earth? Ishita had no problem with that:
So, go grab those paint brushes, sharpen your pencils and dare to go on that quest to discover yourself.
You can't go wrong, because there is no right either.
