I'm not a pro, but I enjoy illustration quite a bit. I started off drawing fanart as a kid and grew from there. It's mostly a hobby for me. I've never tried making money off of commissions or anything, mostly just in it to push myself as hard as I can. Anyone else doodle?

I used to take art lessons when I was younger. However, this soon got very boring for me and I stopped. Not to brag, but I was pretty good back then. It seems like I've lost the touch now though.

I'm not much of an artist, but I am pretty good at sketching. I was never very good at coloring things in or painting in general. I've gotten into graphic art recently. I've been using Photoshop and Illustrator to create some awesome things. It's become a new hobby for me.

Oh my gosh, I wish I could. I can not draw. I am not an artistic person at all. I feel like it is a natural-born talent, and if you are not born with it, it would be difficult to learn how to draw well. I have always wished I was good at art though.

I had a teacher who used to say drawing was 90% work, 10% talent, but I think attitude is one of the biggest factors. I didn't start to see real improvement until I'd been at it for three years. It's time consuming, but if you keep at it, eventually you'll get somewhere. I've seen people who started out with "mediocre" talent blow past their more talented peers.

 

I've gotten to a place where I'm generally satisfied with the work I can produce now, but there's always room for improvement. I wish I had a tablet. I've wanted to get into digital illustration for some time now.
