jggirl asked: I have some friends who love to draw and paint. But sometimes they can't draw even when they want to so they try and force it. Any advice I can give them please
Well, it depends on what they do.
If they are drawing as a hobby, tell them to sit down, unwind, relax and take some time off. If they can’t draw, then forcing it is going to make it worse and they will grow very frustrated. Take a while off, and when inspiration comes again, it would be a bit easier.
If they are trying to draw as a career, tell them to sit their butts down and draw. It doesn’t matter if it all comes out as scribbles or garbage, because they have to draw from discipline, not motivation. Make them do quick sketches or gestures if nothing else works, but make sure they draw something everyday.
But most importantly, fish thinks they need to hear someone say that it will be okay, that no matter how long it takes, inspiration will come back, so they just need to hang in there until that happens.
Fish wishes both you and your friends the best of luck!

Anonymous asked: Hey fish I am a freshman in high school and my elective is Art. But everyone is better than me and I'm having a hard time... What should I do? Did u that any art classes?
First of all, don’t worry, okay? Everything is going to be alright. You’re only a freshman, you still have so much time to work on your skills. Art is something that continually grows and improve but it needs time, so where you are now is definitely not the best of your ability!
Second, don’t worry about other people. Focus on yourself and make a list of what you would like to improve on. Systematically work through exercises to improve these technical skills. Take it easy, go through everything slowly, deliberately, and carefully. Fish firmly believes that when one artist says someone is better than s/he is, what the artist means to compare is the level of technical skills. In terms of imagination, fish thinks everyone is incredible. So just work slowly, build up your technical skills so that you can confidently lay your imagination into existence.
Most of the improvement in art is just the product of repetition. Once you learn something new, you won’t be able to make use of it immediately. Keep at it until you’ve master it; there’s no other way.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you probably will never be able to catch up to your idols. While you’re working on your stuff, they’re working on theirs. And they’re probably improving at an even faster rate than you are. However, that doesn’t mean that all your work is meaningless. Measure against yourself and where you were, and persistently chase after the people you admire. Even though you can’t catch up to them, you will improve yourself along on the way, and that’s the important thing. Look at their work and take note of what it is that they do that makes it so impressive, and think about how you can translate that into your own visual language. Visual language is a form of communication, and just like you would with, say, Spanish or Sign Language, you won’t be fluent in it unless you practice using it over and over again.
One last thing: even pros can only probably get about 80% of what they imagine out into existence. That means you would probably get even less. So, don;t be disappointed when you don’t get what you imagined in your head. Work with what you got out on paper, not despite it.
Fish wishes you the nest of luck and that you see lots of improvements by the end of your class!
