What is the ONE piece of advice you would give new artists?

One, only one.

Quality materials do make things less frustrating, no matter what anyone says.

Practice as much as possible.

Develop a thick skin, fast.

Ignore the naysayers and keep drawing.

Learn to accept helpful critiques.

This is a good one!

When you start taking commissions, do not offer "payment on completion". It's just asking for trouble.

References and tutorials are your friends, but not a magic wand to replace practice and time.

if you hate drawing something, draw it as much as you can.

Reference is not a dirty word.

Try again and again and again .

This was advice given to me and though I haven't always followed it, I feel better when I do and that is - Draw something EVERY DAY. Doesn't have to be a masterpiece, doesn't have to be finished, it just has to be done.

Draw everyday - make it a habit even if the picture's not something you like in the end. Keep trying.

Never give up. No matter what you think of your work, you will always improve - and no matter what anyone says to you, make your work stronger, better. Because, only you control your art.
