What are some (or one) of the things about which you usually don’t trust your own judgment,
and need someone’s else’s confirmation?
I always need a second opinion on my writing and artwork. As far as artwork for my job is concerned, well that is a little easier because I am following what someone else wants and when the artwork is finished the client signs and acceptance of the artwork which in itself for me is a confirmation on my own abilities on the work front.
When it comes to my own artwork, meaning something that I created which is just me, then I need a second opinion. My family often give me their feelings which help me quite a lot, especially since my family are all quite and arty lot.
The writing though, well that is a big thing for me. I hold back all the time. I have a friend who reads over my writing and often gives me superb pointers and directions in which to go when I’ve written something. The thing is that I can’t always bombard my friend with my writing as my friend is a very busy person…but it’s there; if my friend says its good and that I should continue then I feel much more at ease.
This is what I call Grand.
“Art is limitation; the essence of every picture is the frame. If you draw a giraffe, you must draw him with a long neck. If in your bold creative way you hold yourself free to draw a giraffe with a short neck, you will really find that you are not free to draw a giraffe.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
