I have always been fond of art ever sense I was small. Even though I was always fascinated by art, I never really got into it until my freshman year. Because I am starting out I have the tendency to doubt the capability of ever being a great artist like Jim Lee, Alex Ross, David Finch. Sometimes I feel like its too late, or I am not succeeding. I do not care about fame and fortune, I just simply want to be a great artist. What advice or words of wisdom would you give me? Please feel free to express yourself and thank you yahoo.
Update: ps: I am a self taught artist with a dream....
