Anyone can become decent at drawing with practice. That doesn't make them artistic, which has more to do with knowing what to draw than the drawing itself.

When I was a kid I used to draw DBZ pictures. I started out terrible, and eventually got very good...I could draw exact copies of what I saw. But if you asked me to create an original character I could never come up with an idea.

It's the same now that I'm older. If you ask me to draw something specific, I can make a good attempt at it. But I would never sit down and just draw from my imagination. I'm not artistic that way, and that's something that's much harder to learn/cultivate.

Most of the time, I just vector the shit out of things. When was the last time I used a ruler?

I kind of disagree with what your saying. I use to "copy draw" all the time and although you are eating something you didn't envision, it will be unique in some ways. The amount of pressure you put on the paper, the line thicknesses,etc...Obviously there are varying degrees of creativity, but if "copying" wasn't artistic, how do you explain photography?

I hate when people act like drawing isn't a skill, but a talent you're born with. Anyone can learn how to draw.

Thanks! I tried my best. My colleagues in the Art Club here in CR can do even better.

In the beginning, I used Illustrator to vector. Smooth pencil was my best friend.



Now, I use MangaStudio to vector faster. Then, finish everything up in Photoshop.

Meh.

Saying you can't draw, is basically like saying you think you're ugly/fat/stupid/etc.

It comes from insecurities most of the time.


I think it's simply being honest with yourself.

Drawing is kinda similar to programming/coding when it comes to people getting discouraged. People would think they are too dumb for various reasons; they can't come up with anything to complete an assignment, they can't find a solution to their own problem, they feel like they are the dumbest person in their CS class, and much more.

Some people aren't made for programming, but what a lot of people should know is that you won't always have the skills it takes to program. If you keep programming though you can acquire or polish the skills it takes to program. You will get better if you just practice. I'm not an expert with programming or anything and sometimes I get discouraged too, especially when I can't find a solution to a problem that is driving me nuts.

Anyway, getting to the point some people are born with talents, and it could be drawing, but they aren't FANTASTIC. I'm guessing it takes LOTS OF PRACTICE to draw good. A lot of people that draw crappy now can probably draw really good if they actually practice and try their best. Right now I'm learning how to draw and I can't draw straight lines or nice circles and I'm not good with symmetry.

At first, when I was dabbling the Photoshop software, I felt repulsed of it. It looked so primitive. They used mud color and this shaded blue like it was built like for a caveman. Compared that to Illustrator, I was like, "oh, shiny buttons. What this button do?"

Whether or not you can draw is subjective. Some of us can't draw, but we can enjoy drawing.

I agree with anyone else that says anyone can draw. Any can especially be an artist just some have more talent then others at it. People with that art talent can see something different then others that can't. Look at the Disney characters and also, of course, animation characters they are different from western and eastern style artist. Walt Disney's co workers, he called them his friends were Japanese that helped him with his work except during WW2. During that time they weren't allowed to contact until the war was over and no hard feelings. People have different styles of art and what they see through their eyes makes everything unique. Anyone can draw if they put that time and effort into it. I was always the one in the family including my dad's brother that had that talent, well my uncle had no longer interest in what he can do, but I do. I hope to keep on going too. I like that meme that says "Draw this again meme" where someone draw their old artwork again and seeing the difference in how much you approved in the time skip.
