There is hardly any jobs in Australia relating to 'illustration' - mostly just cookie cutter graphic design plain boring creative crap, seems like people are more likely to get work the less training and able they are to draw.
Here I am being able to work pencil and digital and work with quils nibs - feels like I've wasted all the years learning how draw everything and now no one needs talent -
Looking elsewhere I'm starting to apply to illustrator jobs in the US, so would move over if I got an offer and work visa.

Anyone done this?
Assuming I am better than the local talent and have what the workplace requires will they issue a work visa?

Can we talk about glasses?

Has anyone switched to better/worse glasses and felt any difference in performance?
How about those fancy lenses "for artist professionals" that cost 3 times more for their precision?

Do you also have to wash it twice a day before drawing, and it's still dirty enough to annoy you?

I used to have no trouble with computers for nearly a decade, but in recent years I started to think I'm squinting or hunching a lot (blamed my new 1080p monitor), my attention span has gone to shit (blamed the Internet and instant dopamine) and I sleep a lot (blamed bad diet).

One of the most valuable lessons I've learned is to practice and study with little distractions. I used to listen to podcasts ,Trump shit, or talk on the phone while drawing, but it takes up 15-40% of your focus. Save it for when you're doing tedious shit like flatting colors.

The other is to copy. Find your favorite artists and copy the fuck out of them. Put up reference images and draw things like how they draw them. You don't have to do exact copies, but just mimic them.

Stick to one program. I wasted a bunch of time bouncing between apps, and unless you have time to learn new apps, then you're just learning the new adjustment tools rather than learning to draw and paint.

Stick to one technique/process. Find a process one of your favorite artists use, and just do that. There's always going to be time to experiment later on when you're good. Lots of artists have demos online for you to reference.

Lastly, have multiple ligaments in your wrist.

I just realized that one of the reasons why I was frustrated was because I just started to notice that I made my eyes look flat and 2D rather than how Vilppu/Proko/Literally-Any-Artist explains that you have to imagine the eyelid in 3D and wrapping that lid around the sphere (your eye).

Don't fixate on one drawing too long, get it finished and put it aside to start the next. Do your best to draw what you see each time, and keep track of the things you notice are different from how you did it before. Draw from memory so often and compare to the ones with reference.
