how did you learn how to draw? and any tips for people who want to learn?
i get this question often and i’m never quite sure how to answer it, because i didn’t really learn it from anyone/anywhere? for me it wasn’t about how i “learned” to draw, but how i “allowed” myself to draw. for years i felt guilty drawing because it was something i did secretly instead of studying. this went on forever until around 2 years ago, when i finally gave myself the time to draw. so, to answer your question my tips would be-
- don’t rush
- when you’re drawing, you’re drawing. try and forget about everything else
- give yourself some time
- explore different styles (especially when you’re beginning. having an “artstyle” doesn’t make you cool)
- look back at your progress from time to time and feel good about what you’re doing
