Well... I've been drawing for a LONG time, and this kind of stuff is what I primarily do ^^; It's cool. I figured you'd get back to it.

hehe yeah practice is key, and seeing as you've been drawing for a long time, I guess you've had a lot of practice.
When I first saw your work on C-R, it really inspired me to try harder if I thought my work could ever get to your standard. Your art improvement meme especially made me realise we all start somewhere and work up.

Exactly. It actually REALLY frustrates me when people say they could never be as good as me. I don't think that they realise that it took me 20 years to get to where I am today and I didn't ever do any solid practise. If I did solid practise you could cut that time into a quarter. You could halve that again if that solid practise was 5+ hours a day, and depending on your determination, it could be faster than even that. I hear about artists ALL the time that go from zero to 'pro artist' in one year. It takes A LOT of work, and when I see people complain that they can't get that in a few drawings without putting in the hard yards, I feel like getting them to talk to these people that put in the effort and improve in art more than me in 1 year and seeing how it can be done. Or raging at my screen >.<

I'd like to see more artists on CR really get to where they want to be with art rather than making threads on 'their crappy art' or something equally as non committal. Art should turn out how the artist wants it to turn out, not how it ends up.

There's not much more I can add to that except that I entirely agree. I mean, personally, I don't have the time for 5 hours everyday to practise, and I'm not bothered about being at a professional standard yet. Sure, it would be nice to wake up and suddenly be able to draw 'perfectly', but it's nowhere near as fun as if you put in the hard work yourself ^^

:nod: I'm soon going to be doing a 2 hours a night thing myself when I get a desk upgrade. I plan to do 2 or 3 nights in a row on a certain subject that I need improvement on in hope that having a higher turn over of practise art will make a difference in my art. I've become stagnant in my art. I have SO far to go to improve, but I reckon with 2 hours a night I can improve :)I use to do about that when I was younger and my art use to improve a heap. With a game plan I'm sure it'll improve even faster than that too, cause back then, it was just drawing I did- not learning.

Professional standard or not, improving is always good :) I'm not professional, but I know I want to get better at art.
