thank you to the user who sent this to me
reblogging this here because this archive is absolutely incredible
Well I’m now into month 2 of my new life! I’ve not been around for a while now due to not actually having the internet for the first month but I’m not dead :D Gots me my fist proper house too! Being able to art is finally paying the bills (seriously, fuck those guys who say art can’t put food on the table. That dinner I’m eating in a bit? ART MONEY PAID FOR IT… Even if it did take 9 years…).
Gonna have to get back into the routine of sketching and whatnot in my spare time, my routine has been completely thrown off. When drawing is your job it’s tricky to go home and do it all over again but it’s something I gotta start doing regardless.
Sorry this took so long to make, I was just unsure of how to go about it. So I did what I always do when in doubt, I drew spy…His face is a bit too thin but eh. Anyhow, hope it helps!
Picasso is sketching at a park. A woman walks by, recognizes him, and begs for her portrait. Somehow, he agrees. A few minutes later, he hands her the sketch. She is elated, excited about how wonderfully it captures the very essence of her character, what beautiful work it is, and asks how much she owes him. “5000 francs, madam,” says Picasso. The woman is incredulous, outraged, and asks how that’s even possible given it only took him 5 minutes. Picasso looks up and, without missing a beat, says: “No, madam, it took me my whole life.”
Every time I see someone complain that a person’s commissions on DA are way to expensive, I think to myself how silly they are for saying that. Artist’s have put their time and effort into their style, anatomy, and art in general. Yet people think the years an artist has practiced their skills don’t really matter. It takes years to improve and perfect artist’s styles, don’t go and judge when you have no idea how much it took them to get to that place.
All art @ Picasso
