Hanna Kenakkala
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Finland
I am currently working in graphic design and webdesign. On my sparetime I am trying to learn to paint and draw better and understand anatomy. I am interested in illustration and creating amazing pictures and paintings. My goal is one day to be able to draw what I imagine.

"Don't force it, get a bigger hammer..."
"Follow your curiosity."
Interests
About evolving and frustration.

The 4 stages of learning:
1. Not knowing that you don't know how to do something.
2. Knowing that you don't know how to do something.
3. Knowing that you know how to do something, even if it
takes a lot of effort to apply it.
4.
Unconscious knowledge - you can apply what you've learned without thinking about it.
5. Mastering a skill.

The distance between these steps can go fast or take a really long time. It is not unusual to feel extremely frustrated just when we are about to take the next step forward.

SO FRUSTRATION IS A SIGN OF PROGRESS.
Therefore frustration is your friend.

Quotes and inspiration

Why you will fail to have a great career. www.ted.com/talks/larry_smith_…

The power of introverts, Susan Cain. www.youtube.com/watch?v=74kBqe…

"Do not set goals, instead choose a way of life that you know will make you happy. Goals are secondary and in the long run they make you unhappy if your only purpose is to fill a goal. Then the goal defines you and the way you live your life. Instead choose a way of life that will let your capacities function at a maximum level to reach your dreams and fulfill your desires. Our choises shape the course and experiences of our lives. Floating with the sream and not making desicions for youself is also a choise, even if we do not recocnize it as such. "it is not necessary to accept the choices handed down to you by life as you know it. There is more to it than that — no one HAS to do something he doesn’t want to do for the rest of his life." So choose your passion and dreams, do what makes you happy, forget goals." www.brainpickings.org/index.ph…

"If you think that you cannot do something, then imagine how a person who could do it would behave then pretend to be that person and behave like her. Make glorious mistakes and enjoy the journey. On good days and on bad days, make good art." Neil Gaiman www.youtube.com/watch?v=plWexC…

"Work to reach your own unique potential, don't work to be succesfull, create your own definision of succes."

"Imagine what you want to do and make a list. Your goal may seem like a very distant and massive mountain and reaching it might seem impossible. Every decision you make should take you closer to that mountain, that also meens being able to say no to things that are not taking you there. So everytime ask yourself Is this taking me to where I want to go?" Neil Gaiman www.youtube.com/watch?v=plWexC…

"Maybe I am not as good as you but I will outlast you!".

"Never compare yourself to others. Instead you should only compare yourself to yourself, and if you are better today than you were yesterday or last year then you are on the right path. I try to remind myself of that everyday. Good luck on your journey!"

"Never give up never surrender."

"Stay positive and participate in the community."

"Keep your old work in your profile so that you can see the progress your making."

"Composition and gesture first. Then the simple forms and masses, spherical forms, box forms, cylinders. After that the anatomy."

"If you can draw, paint and design, you can do anything."

"Learn to draw what you imagine first. Then transform that skill into computer and not the other way around."

Put your artwork out there!
Get feedback and learn from it.
Build a netword, utilize internet resources.

"Don’t worry so much just do it."

"There are no rules, just tools."

“What nobody tells people who are beginners — and I really wish someone had told this to me . . . is that all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, and it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not.

But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase. They quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know it’s normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story.

It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
-Ira Glass

"If only Heaven will give me just another ten years... Just another five more years, then I could become a real painter."
-Hokusai on his deathbed, age 89

- I would like to create art.
- Really... what for?
- For nothing. Art is not for anything. Art is the ultimate goal. It saves our soul and makes us live happily. So when someone asks you the question "What for" just answer "Well just for the fun of it". That's all the reason you need.

Törmäsin itsekin tuohon Glenn Vilppuun Prokon youtube-kanavalla ja täytyy sanoa, että on aika huikea äijä. quickposes.com on muuten ehkä vielä parempi joissakin jutuissa kun pixelovely. Mahtavaa nähdä sinun kehitystä. Täällä on paljon valokuvantarkkoja töitä, mutta aika moni on sitten kuitenkin tehty ruutusuurennoksina, heijastamalla tai läpipiirtämällä. Varsinainen piirrustustaito on kuitenkin mielestäni sitä, että pelkällä silmällä pystyy katsomaan onko jokin kohdallaan tai ei.

Kiitos :) Hiljalleen edistystä tapahtuu, kun jaksaa vain puskea ja asennoitua siihen että oppirahat täytyy maksaa ja se vaatii aikaa ja raakaa työtä. Pitääpä tsekata tuo quickposes.

Olet oikeassa tuosta läpipiirtämisestä, mielestäni sitä ei kannata muutenkaan kauheasti harrastaa, piirustustaito ja katsomisen taito kehittyy paremmin, kun tekee virheitä ja joutuu silmämääräisesti mittaamaan asioita. Lisäksi eleitä ym. asioita voi korostaa paremmin kun ei yritä kopioida mallia, mikä ei läpipiirtämisessä onnistu. Tätä Glenn painottaa aika paljon, eli ei kopioida sitä mitä nähdään, vaan piirretään ja korostetaan haluttuja asioita ja jos jokin ei toimi, niin sitä voi ja tulee muuttaa niin että se toimii. Gesture is everything!
