Since I saw one of the greatest CA's artists say "I wish I hadn't spent any time on that subject" (from Mentler I think), I couldn't stop thinking about if what I am learning now by myself was actually worth doing.
What should a beginner do and know before becoming a real artist?
Please I am really looking forward to useful answers. If yours is in the mood of "Everything" or any kind of sarcastic comment, simply quit this thread if you don't have any kind of justified reason to make that sort of replies.
Thanks in advance: ZY
PS: I'm sorry if this is just the same question another person posted at another thread.
