10 Minutes of Art Advice With Jake Collinge

10 Minutes of Art Advice With Jake Collinge

CG Spectrum Mentor of Concept Design Jake Collinge recently shared a brief advice video on YouTube as a way to give back to the artist community online.

In this video Jake covers some interesting topics for artists that are open for discussion. We hope that if something peaks your interest you will share your thoughts in the Youtube comments, or better yet by joining our CG Spectrum Community Group on Facebook.

Each minute of the video launches a new subject, where Jake provides some humble advice and opinions. Things get rolling at minute 1.

He covers the following topics that not many artists actually stop to consider:

  • Ongoing Projects
  • Oversaturation
  • Reference
  • Commitment and Expectation
  • Isolating Skills
  • Belief in Progress
  • Put Practice First
  • Momentary Inspiration
  • Session Goals
  • Consecutive Sessions

    Learning art, or anything other applicable creative field, is a long process, so we hope this advice will be helpful to you. Please share this with other artists in your lives to hopefully inspire them to better their skills and approach to being creative.
