If you do want to get better, if you really want to find your own style, and start having fun with your art, it is all about actually DRAWING! And drawing in your sketchbook, everyday, is really the first step you need to do.
The second one is SHOW YOUR SKETCHES! I know it’s scary to show your personal work because, in a way, you feel like you are exposing yourself to people, and the fear of judgment is a terrible feeling. But you’ll be surprised to find out that people will react favorably, and will give you feedback that you NEED to grow as a artist.
Additionally, the more you draw and the more you share your work, the more you will inspire your peers and people around you, and the more motivated you’ll get.
Lastly….art and talent is not a gift from god. I don’t subscribe at all at all to this point of view. The art of drawing is purely mechanical. The more you practice, the better you get. There’s no secret involved, no formulas, no crutch. If you want to become an artist…DRAW! Don’t look for formulas and shortcuts.
And enjoy your life, have tons of experiences, and draw from them to create your own art.
