Sketching in Clay new intro part 1 of 4 - Truth about creativity
Do you consider yourself creative? Do you tell yourself "I am not creative"? I believe that each and every one of us has creativity somewhere within. We were born with that spark and it flourished when we were children. Growing up however, a lot of people have lost their connection to their inner child and the creativity that comes with it. Now it is suppressed and becoming toxic or an infection bottling up within them. Here I will share with you that we are all creative and how to tap into it.   Look out tomorrow for Part 2 explaining sketchbooks.   to learn more about my art visit www.briansartofcreation.com  to support my projects and see more visit www.patreon.com/briansartofcreation  Thank you for watching and please subscribe as well as comment and let me know what you think.

Eliminate your excuses 06 - pushing through barriers
  Pushing through Barriers Are you enjoying your creativity? Are you having fun creating? Awesome! But what if you are getting stuck? After you get into the flow of being creative there will be times where you hit some roadblocks or barriers. Sometimes they are early on with you do not know where to start. Sometimes you lose interest or get lost right after you get started. You start blocking it in and you don’t see the image right away. When this happens just take a deep breath and push through. Keep going and keep in mind that this is suppose to be fun and you are enduring a learning experience. What happens if this piece turns out horrible? If you had fun it doesn’t matter. And if you learn something, Even better! I have found that with a lot of artists including myself that we get to a point where we just hate it or lose interest. And that point is right before the pieces metamorphosis. Like a point where a painting looks muddy and then the artists adds a few highlights and the piece just comes to life.  So when this happens just remember to have fun and make yourself work through it for another 30 min. Early on when i was doing sketches I had a problem with losing interest soon and not finishing. I forced myself to do 3 hour studies. One of them I did not like after 45 minutes, i didn’t care for the expression or the character, but I knew I had to stick with it for another 2 hours. So what i did was find the things i liked about it and got rid of the things i didn't like about it. Because i forced myself to do that i created an interesting character that i would have never come up with normally. Push through and enjoy the process. Learn and have fun If you are interested in hearing more inspiration subscribe to my YouTube and check out my Motivational Monday’s videos.

Eliminate your excuses 05 - No! I won't like it!
  NO, I won’t like it! You never tried it! How do you know? People are always so quick to dismiss the unknown or the things that are unfamiliar to them.  Sometimes they don't believe in themselves. Sometimes they don't know where to start. Sometimes they just have not seen a subject strong enough to get them interested. Well, follow me this year as I start digging hard and deep into my creativity. I will be sharing it all with you. Sometimes I will be sculpting, but I will also try to get back into sketching and scribbling at times to free up my mind. Even some coloring pages to switch things up. Maybe some airbrush sketching and whatever pops into my mind.  Give things a shot, then decide if you like it.

Eliminate your excuses 04 - i don't have the time
  I don’t have the time! What? Do you think that everyone else was given a different calendar? Do you think somehow you were gypped and have less than 24 hours in your day? First, we are all given the same number of hours each and every day. Now i know that we all have different priorities, but that's all about the choices we make and some of them do not allow creative or personal time. Some of us have multiple jobs and kids and housework. Others have a 9-5 day job and then sit in front of the TV to wind down until bed. The key is to make your personal time a priority, even if you can only squeeze in 20 minutes a day. The choices you make are yours and you decide what is important, don’t complain you don’t have enough time.  Second, I will be sharing that you do not have to spend a lot of time on these creative tasks and challenges. Mine I like to do 30-45 min, but you can knock something fun out in just a few minutes a day. What if you spent 5 minutes just relaxing with yourself and coloring a picture to release. Would that help your mindset for the day? You bet it would!  So keep following along and I want to see you give it a shot and have some fun for yourself.

Eliminate your excuses 03 - I can't even draw a stick figure
  I can’t even draw a stick figure! So what! Why does everybody go to that old worn out answer? I didn’t ask you to draw a stick figure. I asked if you wanted to get creative. You can color or draw whatever you want. If you don’t like stick figures then draw a tiger! Stick figures are boring anyway do something more interesting. Just start moving your hand and see what comes out. It does not need to be perfect. It does not have to be beautiful. You just have to be you and have fun with it! Let’s see what you got!

Eliminate your excuses 02- consistency
  Consistency  This one right here is a big one. It even tried to swallow me up this year! So many plans and ideas trying to plan and figure myself out this year and i started to slip. Here i was trying to do a video every week to eliminate the excuses everyone has. And here we are 4 weeks in and i think i have 1 uploaded. Really Brian? That’s horrible.  My solution is to give myself grace and give myself understand because i have noticed it and i will push to do better. That is going to be the biggest win for you. Do not just forgive yourself! Or else you may slip even more because you know that all you have to do is say I’m sorry and move on. Make sure that you hold yourself accountable, but also don’t beat yourself up about it. Make sure that you understand what you did and stand up to your future self to try to constantly improve. Do not just allow it and say i will try to do better tomorrow. Go out there and get consistent with your craft and enjoy it. Whether it is 5 min a day with a coloring page or 1 hour a day with clay or a pencil. Have fun with it.

Destroying excuses 01 - I am not the creative type
I am not the creative type! I have heard this one more times than I can count. You may say that, but then you start giving me all kinds of creative excuses about why you are not creative. It’s funny to me, because later in that same conversation you will talk about how you like to relax and color in a coloring book.  The biggest issue I believe for people is they do not see themselves as creative..... read full post at www.briansartofcreation.com/blog

24-full immersion
Three weekends ago I attended a Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within event and this past week I continued to review my notes. Now while there was a ton of top-notch amazing content and information. The experience and feeling was easily the best part of the event! Allow me to explain. This event was just over 50 hours over the course of 4 days. Due to those times and the long days I went with minimum sleep. With only a few scheduled breaks and me not wanting to miss information I went with minimum food and a lot of water. I arrived at the event early and stayed for 10-15 hours a day, I walked over hot coals, I met tons of new people, I jumped and danced and shouted most of the day. However, what was amazing was that on Sunday night I was not fried or burnt out. I was still pumped and energized...... read full post at www.briansartofcreation.com

23-are you holding your own measuring stick for success?
This is one of those topics I always see people all over the place with. Do you view yourself as successful in your current state or place in life? Or do you need to have this thing, or that position, or make a certain amount of money? I always tell people that I meet if they are measuring with the latter that it can crush and hinder them from moving forward and growing. Allowing the world and the society to hold the measuring stick of your success puts you out of control and can create a step so large it is impossible to climb....
