To my surprise, the best way to learn to draw is simply to learn to draw. If the teacher has not drawn an example in class, it just doesn’t matter. I learned by drawing, then learned by using examples to understand drawing techniques. (I’ve also learned by watching other artist.)
How do you plan to keep your motivation? I think you’re working towards a job!
There are a lot of things I have to do before I can work, but that is just a side effect. This is one of the factors that keeps me going to art classes.
What makes you happy in your drawings?
Drawing is just about trying new things. Nothing is easy or boring. What I learn and what I see are the greatest things. I like seeing my own artworks being noticed, while all I have to do is draw them!
Any advice for budding artists out there?
Get your own work published – that’s the best way to help new artists like me learn. It’s very common for someone to get published for their art only to be disappointed. So many “pros” get into drawing without having enough exposure as a student or teacher. It’s a good way to learn.
