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 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.
