    i need people to connect with lmao.
    best i can do is copy something from a manga which is pretty looked down upon in the art community. i don't even know what styles suit me in terms of furry or manga art.

    Welcome to the club. I kinda gave up drawing, although I've always wanted to get the skills required to draw.

    Countless times I tried to learn... I never got anywhere. Here's a photo of a shitty dragon I did that looks more like a snake. That's the best I can do.

    Eh, it's complicated. I've learned to draw for a couple of years, and even got somewhere with my skills, but then moved on to making video games and playing music. I've returned to more art practice during January, after 4 years of hiatus, but yeah, as of now, I don't like my drawings very much (not in a "PRAISE ME PLZ" sense, but genuinely think they're bad). Yet again, there are various random people who actually like my artwork, and I even managed to strike a couple of trades with really skilled artists (one of which I still didn't finish, but I hope to nail it during current or next weekend), so yeah, maybe I'm not as bad as I think I am. In other words, I don't even know if I can draw or not, it's a complicated question for me :confused:

    I honestly don't know if I can draw anything half decent anymore. It's been years since I seriously sat down to draw anything.

    Ashamed to admit it, I can't draw either.

    My entire family can though. It skipped me. x_x

    I don't know a thing about shading, painting, crafting, sculpting, sketching or anything like that.

    I can only color but even then I go outside the lines lol xD

    I can draw enough to get me by, but seeing some of the amazing things others draw puts me to shame!

    Oh well, who needs art when you have others to do it for you? :D

    This hits home. But I'm the only one with 4+ years higher education and the only "math guy" in the family. On the other hand, the pay is shit for the work and there are days I wish I could have gone the art route because I hold more regard for it and feel like I'd be having more fun with it.

    " This art tutorial is pretty good"
    " Oh yeah? How so? "

    Asian. "

    I try to draw, but it always turns out a little strange.

    I know the feeling, back in school there was more than one assignment that the teacher said they couldn't read.

    I'm lucky if I get by with a ruler.

    But that MS-Paint, that's next level

    Drawing is one of those things that only people with loooots of time on their hands can do because it literally takes all day to draw one picture. For me it can be anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of nonstop focus.
    So if you say you can't draw. You just need to really spend not just an hour but enire days trying. For years might I add. Lol ☆

    There are many tutorials on how to draw so it's really up to you.

    I really admire and appreciate that amount of focus.
    I have just started going back to school, and I have had to re-learn focus and concentration.
    My prac classes require just that, focus and concentration.
    This also highlights what you say about a lifetime of dedication to a craft.
    Only this week was I lamenting about a lack of time to study. Upon discussion with an author acquaintance, he rightly reminded me that you have to make time, if you want to push ahead.
    Now I did know this, but hearing it again really rams it home.

    I'm going to have a go at little drawing.
    I'm not expecting greatness, but at least I know that I have had a go.

    You can't say that you can't draw unless you try.
    I'm sorry.

    I dunno, I've always been of the opinion that anyone can draw; we all have different ways of perceiving and interpreting things after all ^^ Doesn't matter if it's primitive stick figures or a full-blown masterpiece worthy of National Gallery hanging space. And anyway, so long as you enjoy it and get something out of it. I myself am a lover of lots of different types of art: 17th century Dutch paintings; medieval heraldry; contemporary european illustration; graphic bold styles; sculpture; textiles, animation, the list goes on! I'd say the only stuff I'm not keen on is modern art (the kind of stuff you'd see at the Tate).

    I mainly draw to have fun and believe if I wore to put enough effort into it I could get better and thank you for the comment on my drawing

    All that matters is if you enjoy it in my opinion! If you want to draw then do it, DO IIIIIIIIIIIIT! *In Arnold Schwartzeneggar voice*
