I was listening to "Budget Meeting" from the King Arthur soundtrack when reading this. Made for a very unusual reading experience. :)

This one is the best:

"Do not be ashamed of past errors! Be glad for them and push forward! Do not try to just outrun your friends. Don't just try to outrun the bear. Try to outrun GOD. There is no limit!"

 ;D

hey, that was a really nice reading!

It is true that the mental aspect of kung-fu is the desired end; however, to achieve this end, technical skill must come first.

The more technical practise you do in the Way of the Pixel, at the end you'll come across the Pixel itself.

^ my favourite!

“Mere technical knowledge is only the beginning of Pixel Fu. To master it, one must enter into the spirit of it.”

“There are lots of guys around the world that are lazy. They have big fat guts. They talk about chi power and things they can do, but don't believe it.”

I argue that art is enjoyable even if you aren't good. *

I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.

Focus on the other aspects that are fun...otherwise just don't enjoy it for a while.  ;)

Art is not enjoyable if you're not good at it.

That totally depends on your mindset.
Also if art is not enjoyable if you are not good at it, please explain more than half of Deviantart to me.
Fail!

Art is not enjoyable if you're not good at it.
Yet in order to get good at it, you must do it.

Explain your way out of THAT paradox.

You don't do it because its enjoyable but just want to improve. Or your concept of what is 'good' is never beyond what you can draw. For instance, in kindergarden I thought i was great because i drew the
arms and legs coming out of a body, rather than coming out of the head, like the other kid did. Now I think there is more to drawing figures than just that, but I'm still think I'm awesome because I don't think proper anatomy is that important.
Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

I'd say being able to be enthusiastic about something in a long run equals creativity. When you're enthusiastic enough to try keep on doing whatever it is.. drawing, playing guitar, writing stories, it'll eventually lead to mastering enough skills to make something good.

It's strange to put these two things against each other and compare them. In the aspect that you're not actually leaving much behind in terms of self expression and enduring artistry while playing a game no matter how good you are.
