How to Become a Fine Artist

Find your own path, do not let anyone else tell you whether your art is "good" or "bad." There is no such thing as good or bad art, if it comes from your heart, and everyone has a distinct style to their work. Websites such as www.deviantART.com and www.draws ace.com are good for browsing art, and seeing what styles appeal to you as an individual.
