Hi! I am Kritika Goyal. I am an Artist, an Illustrator, a Doodler and a Video Editor from Delhi, India.

I did my Arts and Animation Course from Arena Animation, Delhi and then went on to study Film Direction from I.C.E, Balaji Telefilms, Mumbai.

I have worked as an Illustrator, Video Editor, Pre-production artist, Graphic Artist and Storyboard Artist. Along with working as a full-time employee, I went on to making short films to enhance my learning and skills.

How to Enhance creativity and Improve art?

My journey from a student of arts and animation to a Freelance Illustrator and Designer has spanned almost 12 years.

There were a lot of questions and doubts I had as a student, most of which went unanswered. Now, being a professional, most of them have been answered. Although some part of me thinks that the answers could have been resolved earlier, eventually leading to faster growth.

However, it’s never too late to learn and gain knowledge. Like you, I am still learning all the time. That is why I decided to make this video. Honestly, it was going to be a general art video. But, then I decided to share its benefits which could be helpful to those who are learning art skills, trying to find their art style, or have multiple questions on the enhancement of creativity.

USING MULTIPLE ART MEDIUMS AND RECREATING THE SAME ARTWORK

So, what does this mean? Is it a sure-shot method for your skills?
As said earlier, this was going to be a general art video. The difference I felt while making the video was the benefits I experienced while trying this method. Thus, I decided and felt the need to share it with a view that it can be helpful to others too.

Below are some of the benefits I want to share with you.

OVERCOMING HESITATION

Many of us have a primary medium of presentation for our artwork. Acrylics to watercolors, brush pens, to even only Photoshop or Illustrator. These are our niches, and it’s great to have one as they represent our specialty that helps one grow, earn, and get recognition.

CORRECTING ERRORS 

Time for the next art supply!

Did you mess up previously? Or do you feel something could have been better?

Unless there is a reason or pressure to recreate the same artwork, we avoid putting in an effort. Whereas, in this method, the laziness or excuses are gone. The excitement of trying a new art supply determines you to correct your previous errors resulting in a better quality of your art.

ENHANCEMENT OF ART STYLE 

The application of art supplies is different.

Did you see any difference in using your next art medium?

Are the visuals look and feel new?

When trying a new art medium, these are some of its benefits.

Application, texture, look and feel changes. This molds into the development of new ideas and new art styles.

INTEREST IN NEW MEDIUM 

You are developing interest in your next art supply and want to try it more! So, this is what you gain from this experiment.

Interest in the new art supply and a boost in your energy to create more art stuff. Every new thing adds up to every other new thing being born. That’s how this benefit works. You will be able to create different artworks and can also experience mixed media art styles.

SELF OBSERVATION, SELF JUDGEMENT, and IMPROVEMENT

You must have observed how much you have improved and can judge yourself by now. We all admire someone else’s work more than ours and aspire to create like them. I’ve had this a lot too. In this method, every new art supply used brought little confidence to move ahead with the hope that the next one would be better than the previous one.

AUTO PRACTICE 

Have you counted the number of times you recreated your art? <

I have made it five times till now, and this will be my final attempt, which means I have practiced the same art six times. This auto-practice habit, avoided by many of us, is already achieved in a fun way.

So, this is it! A simple way how an experiment can be beneficial in enhancing your art and creativity. It is just a personal experience with the hope that it helps you too. I am not a teacher and always learning too. I will be sharing whatever I can with the same hope of inspiring young artists and creative individuals.

I hope you all enjoyed the video!

For any questions or ideas for future videos, let me know.

Thank you so much for reading and watching.

Lots of Love,

Thoughtpotarts


Why Thoughtpotarts

WHY? ‘THOUGHTPOTARTS’

Whenever it comes to choosing a name, either it is an instant decision or it is a long, meticulous process of surfing the web or shifting through a dozen of books.

Well, it’s not about choosing a baby’s name I’m talking about.

It’s about the name of my brand.

My identity.

The Beginning!

I started making short films alongside my first full-time job around 2015-16.

The fun and excitement were real!

The hunger to grow fast with all the knowledge absorbed during my years in Mumbai, learning direction, was looking for an expressive vent out.

Every short film I shot revealed my numerous shortcomings and lapses and whatnot. It helped me set on a path of self-discovery.

So, let’s continue…

During my second job,

(Yes, the first job was gone due to company closure but, that was and still is my favorite place I worked.)

I started a YouTube Channel with a friend.

Weekends we turned to weekdays, brainstorming, sitting at Mc Donald’s, and having our favorite Mcspicy Chicken Burger with fries.

If weekdays were for full-time job work. Weekends and weeknights were for the Channel.

We planned our next big video, themes, ideas, and many things on how to keep growing.

And that’s how ‘CARRYBAG’ was initiated.

We decided,

“Whatever it is, we are going to share it”

“We need to make it.”

As I had experience in animation, video editing, and stuff, automatically the workload on me increased.

But, things didn’t go smoothly and the overload took its toll on me. And we mutually decided to stop.

This was BIG!

It was 2018.

Comic-Con started in India, from Delhi in 2011 at INA, Delhi Haat.

Ever since, I have been a regular at Comic-Con, Delhi.

The one in 2018 took place on NSIC grounds, Govindpuri.

And the reason for my excitement was I was also exhibiting my work for the first time at Comic-Con, Delhi, 2018.

The registration was done super-fast without having an idea of what it was that I was going to show and sell. I researched, created rough drafts, and planned and that’s how my days and nights went by. And yes, I traveled a lot to get merch manufacturing work done.

My family support and excitement were evident, and I can surely say much more than my own conviction in my work.

‘I wonder how! Don’t they get tired of running with me! ‘ (suspicious)

So, all things were set. But, then I needed to have a name for the stall and artworks.

My mind churned out various names: Creative Dump, ‘KritikaAkriti’,

CreativeHub…But nothing clicked.

“It was as if something was missing.”

Then while relieving my bowels…sitting you know where!

An idea struck; I came up with ‘THOUGHT_POT’.

Okay, let me jump straight, else this section will take a hell of a time.

So, this ‘underscore’ is simply to differentiate the name from a Media Company by the name ‘Thought pot Media’.

No offense I never even knew

“aisa naam ki koi company bhi hai.”

When I checked online, I got to know.

But I was keen on the name and I ended up inserting an underscore and that’s how ‘Thought_pot’ was created.

Well, the event was awesome, and I met some really nice people too.

Time to end this right here right now!

So, the only thing growing and spreading rapidly is the Coronavirus, the rest of everything has been on a decline, especially jobs.

Almost every fourth person has been laid off. And I was too.

“I was highly disappointed, I won’t lie. But I need to move on, right!”

I decided that I should finally accept the 100s of suggestions to start ‘Your own work and Shop’.

So, here is the story as to how ‘Thoughtpotarts’ began its journey!

I needed one simple, direct, continuous, unique identity and ‘Thought_pot’ was messing it up.

Any search on Google would not yield to the right platform until this ‘underscore’ is typed in, which is very tricky to always type because you obviously don’t consider it when writing in a flow.

So, as I said I didn’t want to leave this name.

“C’mon, the washroom is my den for solutions and ideas! How can I leave it!”

So, that’s how ‘THOUGHTPOTARTS’ was born and is here to stay.

Final note.

“Don’t leave something because it’s not working. Find ways to make it work the other way round. And I am talking in a positive sense. Don’t let negativity overpower the positive. And keep on going”

Till then, share your love and support.
