  •   buttercupsoup Haha...Well, when I took drawing classes, when students wanted to draw something accurately, versus stylized, they would ask the professor how to make it look "real." I don't think their goal was photorealism, instead it was accuracy. They would say, "How can I make this look realistic?" I think some art history sticklers would debate you on the terms realism/Realism, but I think it's safe to say most people would understand what you mean. 1w
  •   liannewilliamsart @buttercupsoup ah yes, photorealism is a whole different ball game- the aim is to create an illusion of a photograph. Drawing accurately and realistically is very different. I think I've always been naughty and left some pencil marks though even when I've tried to be photorealistic. I just prefer it. I do love photorealism because it's AMAZING how a bit of connective tissue and a pencil can create something as pure as a machine but the rebel in me always wants a bit of texture. I like it rough. xD 1w
  •   buttercupsoup LOL touché. Anyway, your work is really good and I admire just how prolific you are! 1w
  •   liannewilliamsart @buttercupsoup oh don't lol it doesn't mean anything in the real world there are much much better out there then me. I'm no better then a hobbiest tbh :( but thank you :) 1w
  •   buttercupsoup You're welcome. What I learned about art is that there's always going to be someone better, which is a great thing, because then there's something to aspire to. If your goal is to sell, well, art is a business like anything else, and marketing and WHO YOU KNOW are the most important things. Your goal can also be just to create art for yourself and never sell a piece. That's also just as relevant. 1w
  •   liannewilliamsart @buttercupsoup yup! And I'm yet to even decide where I want to take mine. Im at s phase of transition. I can 'perform' if I want to... But do I want to? That's the question. I can link my creativity to my depression/anxiety and I'm not sure it's worth the drama anymore. I'm thinking about it. 1w
  •   buttercupsoup I'm not sure what you mean by linking your creativity to your depression/anxiety...do you mean that you would like to create art that expresses your depression/anxiety or that you create art BECAUSE of it? 1w
  •   liannewilliamsart @buttercupsoup Neither. In a nutshell I suffer from mild anxiety and depression which is very likely to be stemming from low dopamine levels- that's medically very common in creative minds because creativity generally blossoms in brains who have a lower then average level of dopamine receptors which allows us to make subtle and unusual idea connections and therefore be creative. Schizophrenia is also very closely linked. So therefore I tend to be depressed/anxious whenever I'm creative because my brain is in that mode. When my dopamine levels are high I'm less creative, but I feel better. So I'm faced with an interesting challenge- staying creative without exploiting my dopamine levels. On Twitter we've been discussing the chicken/egg scenario. Did we become low because of creativity or did the creativity come as a result of being low... 1w

liannewilliamsart I'm also a hypochondriac and have a cat allergy. 😇 1mon
  •   yikkuenj_ & who's ever good enough. Even the most perfect have flaws that we doesn't know:) 4w
  •   scenicmosley I feel like this everyday. 4w
  •   thekatzensprung I am always relieved that others have the same diseases! Hypochondriac and I try to be perfect. I torture friends and neighbors with long stories about rare diseases (I have them all) But when I draw I forget my pains:) 4w
  •   liannewilliamsart @thekatzensprung it's difficult to just 'let go' of health anxiety. Its a very potent paranoia. I feel like drs, family, friends etc are all overlooking my 'symptoms' and I'll either die of something preventable or be in lots and lots of pain. But I KNOW that's not the case. Mine started after pregnancy. My labours weren't normal so I couldn't rely on traditional 'signs' I was about to give birth so I just became extra vigilant aka paranoid. Then I didn't stop. Decided to address it in myself this week with lots of love since I got to the point where I was self diagnosing with a new cancer/tropical illness each day. Found the nomorepanic site very helpful. 4w
  •   thekatzensprung Yes it does not go away easily and many people suffer from anxiety. I wlll have a look at this website. I wish you the best for the future, even if it wont be perfect:) 4w

  •   bobcatkelly Fantastic detail 2mon
  •   hannahelizabeth_n It's great! I think you feel that way because of where you chose to stop drawing the spider at. If you'd been able to keep drawing, you would feel differently about it maybe. I don't know, either way, it's great! Lol. 2mon
