Draw more shit from imagination

Anyone else here feel they are a Jack of all trades and a master of none?

All my life, I know I’ve wanted to draw, but never really settled on being one type of artist. I’ve wanted to be a illustrator, then a comic book artist, then a character designer for video games, or concept artist for animation/video games. Now I’m focusing on storyboarding.

I feel I want to do it all, but because I’ve explored all these options, I feel I haven’t mastered any of it. My portfolio is a reflection of it. I have samples of illustration, storyboards and comics in my portfolio, but not enough to show of each category.

It doesn’t help with conflicting advice I received over the years. Some teachers or professionals have told me it’s good to be a versatile artist. Others say I should focus on one thing, (whether its comics, illustration or storyboarding), to be good at that one thing and show a lot of that one thing.

Is it better to show that you can do a lot of things as an artist, or is it better to focus on one type of art field and get better at it? What if you want to do more than one thing?
I enjoy creating illustrations, comics and storyboards, but I feel like I haven’t perfected anything.

Tl;dr Is it better to be a jack of all trades when it comes to creating art for certain fields, or a master of one?

With sites like squarespace, you can create sub-portfolios within your portfolio. You can create a separate portfolio for storyboard work, another for comics, another for illustration, etc. Within each sub-portfolio, you can create galleries for different projects or pieces. Maybe something like that could work for OP? If they apply for storyboard jobs, they can just link the storyboard portfolio. You can also a drop down menu at the header if they want to check out the other categories. Easier to put everything under one domain than manage multiple domains.

you're missing out on networking ... probably the single most important aspect of going to an art school ('but what about the technical skills', lol are you serious? you can get that shit at a community college)

you'll have no clout when people ask where you studied.

you also won't have 50k in student debt ... but if that amount of money is an 'issue' for you i got news for you son ...

My focus would be learning to draw, I don’t really give a shit about the degree just want to learn. Cute that you think 50k is a flex though, good for you champ you flex on

How the fuck do I visualise things to draw?
I can visualize things but they're blury and kinda dream like, not stable and not something i can draw really.
I can sort of visualize and guesstimate shit based on it like color and shape but I can't draw it really.
How do I improve this.
>>
sudoku
>>
>>5022724
you nedd to work on your observation skills, like actually looking at things, ho the light falls, how that describes the form, what the negative space is like

-the best way to do this is draw stil life collections of objects, sketch things when out and about, random shit on your desk, your coffee cup each morning.
train yourself to really LOOK at the world around you and you will develop an internal visual library, you will probably throw most of these sketches awayy they do not serve to be looked at except to see what you can improve on, they are stepping stones on your journey.
fill skethcbooks with observational drawings then start the next one.

you cannot output without first giving yourself input.
>>
>>5022724
Be more observant, look at things more carefull, watch things slowly and carefully. Notice features (colors, shapes, etc) of things, memorize them. Go to a museum, a forest, park, whatever.

Lines, shapes, value, form.. when will you finally realize that the most fundamental aspect of art is SOUL?

>>5022575
When something looks too similar to other stuff youve seen, its soulless.

You get soul by breaking the rules. In order to break the rules you need to understand the rules.

A kids scribbles have soul but they still suck.

>You get soul by breaking the rules. In order to break the rules you need to understand the rules.
>A kids scribbles have soul but they still suck.
You contradict yourself in your own post, kids don't know any rules in painting.
>>
>>5023735
Kids don't know any rules and therefore the only thing they can do is break them. Its entirely original, 100% soul.

If you want your drawings to not suck you need to know the rules. But if you go 100% rules, you will be only repeating what everyone does and get no soul at all. Therefore you need to break the rules.

The thing is, for a drawing to both look skillful and soulful you need to be aware of what you are breaking. A broken neck is soulful but also ugly, but if its on a waifu that youve drawn for coom then youve messed up.

Fundamentals first, soul will come after.
>>
>>5022672
nice art
cringe book
>>
>>5023768
So what you mean by that is, that as we roam our lives, our soul will get distorted by the individual occurrences.
However, through the acquisition of the fundamental energy that we learn from the fundamentals of drawing, we recognize our destroyed soul and this now finds itself to its origin by ultimately returning all parts of fundamentals which wie studied and is able to give life into our ability in which we can create now with a soul purpose?
