An artist in dire need of something more.

Hey, My name is Christoph' Holloway. I live in sequim WA and just started my apprenticeship as a tattoo artist a week and a half ago. In my drawings i am currently working on diversity. Drawing 50's 60's 70's abstract, tribal, you name it. and so far so good with some great help from this site as well)

but of late ive noticed my skill is becoming poor due to my lack of motivation. My goal is to get through this apprenticeship within three years and become a full fledged tattoo artist. But damnit going from drawing stick figures to portraits has taken quite some self motivation. at this point i feel hopeless, Like i cant accomplish what ive set out to due reagardless of my progress. is there any motivational advice?

ANything at all would be useful at this point. Im sure that at one point in time all art has become a difficult task. or at least getting to that next level. Anything?

Don't expect a huge improvement in a week and a half .. that's just setting yourself up to be disappointed !

You could be overwhelmed by what they're asking you to do ... or maybe it's not exactly what you expected the apprenticeship to be ... either way just grind it out ! You don't need any mind tricks ! :D

You could start by posting your work in the drawing section .. getting feedback from a different source than you are currently could be motivating .. :wink:

Yes please post, it's the critics , and tips from here that allowed me to improve, not only in skill , but also in seeing things, I would have normally missed , and learning things to do or not do on the next piece. You learn somthing each time , just keep at it never give in :) .
Don't judge a book by it's cover , open it up and read it.
