Have you ever said to yourself – if I could go back in time and give advice to my younger self? With the end of the year approaching, everyone evaluates successes and failures. We think about what we could have done better and everyone has moments in life that they would like to erase completely. However, that is not possible, the only thing we can do is learn from our mistakes and try to be better.
Even successful people who have managed to build a career experience similar failures. On the way to their dream job, they experienced many ups and downs. But they never gave up and followed their dream. Even if your path is thorny and you want to give up, remember that everyone goes through different obstacles. As the writer, Paulo Coelho once said: “Don’t give up. Normally is the last key on the ring which opens the door.” So persevere, try again and again, and one day you will find the right key.
It’s better to learn from the mistakes of others than from your own. And who could advise you better than someone who has experienced what you are going through? That’s why we reached out to 7 top artists and asked them: What’s the best advice you would give your younger self? Here are their interesting answers. We believe that the advice of experienced artists will inspire you and help you in the growth of your artistic career.

Get in the game as soon as possible, but be patient and dare to ask anyone anything.Maarten Verhoeven
I’d probably say, study faces, observe expressions and skin flow direction. Also, pay more attention to human and animal anatomy. Practice sculpting hair, feathers, fur and drapery. In my opinion these are all really good fundamental skills to learn.Daniel Cockersell
