WEIRD SUPERPOWERS ALL ARTISTS SECRETLY HAVE

WEIRD SUPERPOWERS ALL ARTISTS SECRETLY HAVE



hey everybody it's lavender town and today I'd like to talk about these strange superpowers that you develop after you become an artist and I'm not talking about being super good at drawing or something obvious like that I'm talking about the real ways in which becoming an artist changes you the first superpower that artists have may not be an obvious one it actually has to do with strength and I'm dumping this crabby arm syndrome because it makes sense what with certain crabs having a vastly larger claw than the other and while it doesn't often show itself in size you may notice if you're someone who draws a lot that you're drawing arm is significantly stronger than your other arm way beyond what would be normal for just the difference between your dominant hand and your non-dominant hand in fact I even noticed that if I like feel my forearm you can't tell but just by looking at it but if you feel your forearm of your drawing hand and compare it to your non drawing hand I noticed that my non drawing hand is a lot more well not my hand but mine on drawing forearm is a lot more like slender and has less like muscle enos to it um just because I'm like compulsively drawing all the time and I thought that was something that's super weird so yet I mean try it out on yourself and see if you notice like that you have a strangely muscley home drawing arm because it's definitely something I noticed and I thought it was kind of hilarious and I actually noticed it getting more or less extreme depending on how much drawing I was doing in fact I was doing an animation a hand-drawn animation the first time I noticed it and I was just like drawing day like from when I wake up to when I went to sleep trying to hit this deadline and I just like I was just like notice that my left my left forearm was like all like I like beefy and like strong and so basically um where the super power would be used I think it would be best in arm wrestling scenarios where you can sort of hide the fact that you're so strong obviously you're an artist so if you're like a stereotypical artist you spend a lot of time mostly drawing and not doing a lot of athletics though of course there's always exceptions but you might look like someone who'd be quite easy to beat an arm wrestle if they you know don't don't realize that your secret krabi ability which is to have this super strong drawing arm so yeah if like a sea captain is you know challenging you to an arm wrestle you might not be in as bad a shape as you might have thought I can't really think of any other scenarios in which this superpower is super useful but yeah arm wrestling you got it on lockdown probably just make sure to use your drawing arm the next superpower I want to talk about is something that you work really hard for in art and that is having a steady hand now artists need a steady hand for a lot of reasons and fighting with shaky hands and being unable to draw the lines you want is something that most artists struggle with their entire lives you might not realize though that while you're working really really hard to make sure that your lines are incredibly smooth and they're exactly where you want them and basically that you've really mastered the very fine motor skills in your hand that you are also a tuning your body to learn some other skills at the same time so I actually noticed this in myself it was sort of a surprise to me it's I didn't used to wear a lot of makeup back in high school I didn't really like it and I wore it like glasses all the time so you can really see like eyeliner anything very well through them anyway and during high school was when I was really buckling down the most on trying to learn inking I used dip pens and I used micron pens and I used a tablet and on all of them I wanted to have really beautiful lines so it was something I labored at constantly now when I was ready to go off to college I started wearing contacts and got interested in makeup again and suddenly even though I hadn't practiced putting on makeup for like literally years I suddenly had the ability to do my eyeliner and I realized that it's because I had done all this inking practice and it applied to my makeup as well because it gave me this very steady hand and it made me less like scared and blinky when I was trying to put it on because I knew that my hand wasn't shaking so if you're somebody who's never tried putting on eyeliner but you're someone who draws a lot you should try it because you might surprise yourself the other good point about this superpower is that you know in like an emergency scenario like a lost plane crash or something like that you could probably be the emergency surgeon I mean it'd probably be better to go to medical school first but I mean the point is that you have very steady hands so you know do with that knowledge whatever you must next superpower I want to talk about is how studying art can actually change your eyes now this is something I've experienced in my own personal experience as well as I believe there's been some studies done on this actually but basically I've noticed that the more color names– that I learned the easier I had of a time trying to distinguish between different colors and obviously I'm not talking about you know blue and red I'm talking about colors like periwinkle or teal basically the more names you have for colors the better you're able to see them basically I mean your site's not actually improved but you the way your brain processes what you're seeing is different because you have different words for them which is super fascinating so basically in my in my case I used to only really note one word for gray you know that's it D saturated kind of color but now because I know the word French gray which means a gray that has a little bit of warmth in it I see Gray's in a more complicated way which is super strange it's a very weird phenomenon but basically you can improve your eyes kind of by having a greater color of vocabulary and I think that's fascinating and I think that just by working with color a lot more artists tend to have this ability more than the average Joe so I thought that would be something kind of interesting to talk about and yeah her shirt is a French grey in case you're wondering what that looks like this superpower is one that is really important if you are an introvert and you don't know how to come off properly in a party situation which describes me perfectly so this is something that you learn if you are someone who studies arts any capacity maybe you took our history in school or maybe you're just someone who really is interested I mean most artists are somewhat well-educated about previous artists that have come before so basically if you need to come off as impressive and intelligent and cultured in a pinch all you have to do is talk about an artist whose name is not Picasso van Gogh da Vinci or Michelangelo basically any artist that doesn't fall within this very small scope of what people know about will make you seem extraordinarily well cultured and well educated it'll people will just assume that you speak Latin they will assume that you had a uniform at school and yeah you're instantly elevated in the social classes sort of a Prince and pauper moment it's it's it flawlessly works every time it's best if you have one glass that you can sort of swish around and you have like a fancy dinner gown on or something but you know you can really do this in almost any situation where you really need to you really need to seem like someone who's very very smart and you know there's a very good chance that you'll come off as pretentious but the best thing to do like if you were seriously gonna do this I was this was kind of a joke I don't know if you guys could tell but um if there is a real there's some truth to this that like artists learn about things that a lot of other people don't bother to learn about a lot of people don't bother to learn about Artemisia Gentileschi or they don't bother to learn about art movements outside of like the Renaissance so if you have some sweet art art knowledge or know about some really interesting artists from the past that people don't know about that actually is something good to talk about if you're running out of things to talk about I used to think that that stuff was kind of boring or something but when I learned about it I thought it was super fascinating so that is actually a real sort of small talk point that you might be able to use but yeah I hope you guys like this video it was kind of a silly one obviously but I was just thinking about it the other day about particularly the eyeliner thing notice what really started this whole thing off also being freaked out by how one of my arms was like more buff than the other that's so weird I'm really scared that one day like I'm gonna draw so much that it's gonna be like visible and I'm gonna just have a big old buff arm on one side and it's gonna be really hard to buy shirts but yeah anyway thank you so much for watching till the end I hope you guys are having a lovely week and I will see you very soon thank you to my patrons including blep Scott Peterson we've code le quiz neck miss musubi be Dave Gaia cattle cat Christy Stuart pay now
