Magus: In the first days of Creation
The ridge of the western mountains saw the first sun, rising out of the darkness like a great cresting wave. Boulder fields – slow-motion avalanches – descended the slopes into the vast array of branching valleys below.
Upon one such slope, well below the tree line, a massive boulder had split the rock flow. In the lee of the boulder lay a deep bed of leaves, shaded by several trees which had pushed their way through the rocky flow.
Within this bed lay the sleeping form of Magus, First among the Lir. Despite exhaustion the dragon slept fitfully, limbs and tail twitching as he dreamed of the harm he had brought his kin.
One of the Logos sat in the branches of the tree directly over him. She had found him the day before; although eager to engage in conversation she had obeyed her First’s injunction: ‘observe first, build a base upon which to work with. But by all means remain quiet until the opportunity presents itself. These Lir can hear for quite a distance.

Artistic Discipline

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 8, 2016, 12:45 AM
Artistic endeavors do DEMAND great skill.
Which is in ANY other skilled ability in life,
it is acquired by EXPERIENCE.

Drawing and painting IS a discipline.
The only way to draw, or learn how to draw, is by DRAWING.
The only way to train the eye, the mind and the hand
to work in harmony and coordination is to draw.

STRIVE for perfection. Do not disappoint yourself; artistic "perfection" is truly not possible.
Keep an art journal and keep your old art.
Do not discard your old works that you WERE proud of.
Observe what worked in you art and what didn't.
LEARN from you successes and failures.
STRIVE to IMPROVE your artistic skills.

You can also learn from the old  masters and those people you love on Deviant Art.
Your artistic skills may not be as great as those you admire.
They CAN teach you, IF you are willing to observe and learn.

Rodin taught me art,
Goya taught me art,
Durer taught me art.
I never knew them personally.

Do not forget.. have FUN being creative!
