Does talent exist?
I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is

Art and not giving up
Dear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us. 
But we have to stay strong and continue. 
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.  :) (Smile) 
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;

Anyone checking out my drawing gallery should know that I have improved tremendously from when I first posted my art in 2013. Back then I didn't realize how truly horrible I was. Anyway within three years I have come a long way and can at least call myself decent. I'm still a long ways off from where I want to be but practice makes perfect! The point of this post however is to inform anyone to please not judge me based on my old art in 2013 in comparison to my art in 2016. I don't update this page as much as I do my Pinterest page so the giant leaps in my art ability are pretty noticeable...
