Anonymous asked: How old are you and when did you start drawing seriously? I took inspiration from someone a couple years back and started drawing seriously but I'm not really seeing improvement and I don't want to give up but I feel like giving up.
I’m 23. I’ve been doodling my whole life but I never took it seriously till after high school. I got terrible grades in school and i figured that drawling is the one thing I’m pretty good at (and truly enjoyed) so i better start improving on it. You won’t see improvement unless you draw all the time. It’s not something you can just do once in awhile. When my sister when to art school she was painting/drawing all the time for homework, and during that time she became better than both me and our brother and we’re both older than her. At the same time you can stop drawing for a year (like I did) and lose some of your edge.
It’s all about the work you put into it. Just try to make one finished drawing a day, or do some sketches while you’re watching that dumb TV show you like so much. There’s sooo many tutorials out there too. That’s actually where I learned to color. Talent isn’t something you’re born with it’s something you create yourself! : )
