How long have you been drawing? I've been drawing for like 4 years and my art is only starting to get decent. Just curious!
Hi! I’ve been drawing since I was a kiddo but I got serious about it in 2013, so I’ve been drawing for about 4-5 years. However, it’s not about how long one have been drawing but about how much practice, patience and effort they put into things! You can spend 50 years drawing and get nowhere or 2 years actively learning and studying and become a dreamy artist™
I think that in the era of Internet being such a common and everyday thing, all the available resources and tutorials are literally within an arm’s reach - learning about different techniques has never been easier!
I said it once, and I’ll probably keep saying this till I die but art is not only about drawing mindlessly, you have to be smart about it!! Art is about understanding the thing you’re drawing and why the thing looks the way it does. This includes the language of shapes, rhythm and flow, colour theory, composition and perspective - there are many many aspects and all of them should be understood to certain extent! Rather than just drawing and letting things happen, it’s good to sit back and learn separately about different aspects of what you’re creating. And when you get the hang of all that you’ll see a massive improvement way quicker!
Sorry, this went on for wayy longer than I expected, but hey, maybe it’ll help someone out there! Cheers!
