I'm 18, am I 'behind'? This drawing is about my average quality, done fairly quickly.

Well, I did this when I was 13... so yeah, you're a bit behind

I thought ic was a better board than this

You've already surpassed 50% of this board, OP.

kek, just how bad are you?

>>2368198
I'm 19 and I think that all the time. I probably am behind.

You look 'alright, though.

If someone said you were 'way behind' other 18/19 year olds what would you do? It doesn't affect you and what you're capable of (or incapable of) worth a damn, so discard that line of thinking; focus on your own improvement now instead of being burdened by regret many years later.

Why did you post this instead of just drawing more?

>ignore peoples opinions
>practice practice practice

>>2368198
Doesn't matter if your behind one bit, your never going to feel like your work is good enough since you should always try to be improving. Don't be one of those 5 years with barely any improvement people.
>>
>>2368198
If you are from 18 to 20 years old, you have some understanding of drawing and can draw in a way that looks at least somewhat appealing, basically if you are the
>Hey this guy knows how to draw
guy in this age range, you are set. That's it, all you need to do is go into study mode right now.
If you start studying now in 5 years time you can easily be in the fucking industry, though it depends on how hard you study.
>>
>>2368198
Don't think about where you are compared to everybody else. You'll always find a ton of people that you can convince yourself are better in some way than you.

Just work, pay attention to your drawings and what's going well and what's going wrong and try to improve. You'll probably always beat yourself up and think you're shit but there will be moments when the clouds part and you see that you're getting better.

Also that drawing isn't bad and it even has a medieval woodcut print like quality. It'd help if you worked on your line quality. It'll force you to really think about how you render detail.

I traced this when I was 9

am i behind?
>>
>>2368198
>>2368200
I am 21 and I cant draw a good head, thats what is being behind
>>
If you are 16-20 there is not yet a "behind"

you are in the prime age range to start taking art seriously, as you still have enough years, say 4, to be able to produce professional tier work before you enter the work force
>>
>>2368198

Just keep practicing man. Keep doing more and more. It's wonderful watching yourself improve and how much more you can do with a blank sheet of paper.

Well, I did this when I was 14 so...

>>2369098
That doesnt work for everyone. I draw for 4 years and I don't see any meaningful improvement. Drawing isn't an answer, learning is. If you are porr, you wont learn to draw.

poor*
>>
>>2369142
You are retarded.
You can practice all by yourself if you just torrent them books and actually practice with them, and with cheap online courses like CTR+Paint that cost 10$ per course you can also master digital art.

I don't know how poor you are but I doubt you are poorer than me, I literally live in a post-USSR shithole that is in a worse economic state than Uganda and my household of 8 people earns like 300$ per month.
Yet I still managed to collect enough to eventually buy a wacom tablet.

There is no excuse.

Sure.

Did this when I was 13. Now looking back at it I cringe

Being behind is a fucking stupid concept. The only downside to start drawing later in life is that you'll have less time to practice.

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, especially the autists on this site.
>>
>>2368198
If you have to ask that question then yes.

Also you are just seeking attention and affirmations
>>
>>2368198
Your age is completely irrelevant. You can't be "behind" because there is no standard. The vast majority of adults draw like shit after all.

You should judge your skill level based on how much time you've put in. Maybe check out the progress thread and compare yourself to other anons.
