I didn't read sedativ's response, as it looks like he did some math.
Don't get discouraged, and by no means, adjust the things you find absolute in your opinion.
As well as always seek the fringe of ideas of the known, and take those ideas further.
To know the art, is nothing more than to know the artists before you.
To create, is your own absolute, (you have no choice here), where, your resemblence of the masters you hold true to the execution of your art may or may not be within your endeavor, (again, you really have no choice here).
You are defined by your field of vision, the best you can do to, is to expand your field, and enjoy your paths of choice with confidence.
You will never, ever please anyone through art, you should be able to please most through your genuineity.
