Why haven't you started drawing yet, robots? It's a cheap and easy to pick up hobby, all you have to do is practice.
You'll feel better if you create things each day, something you can look at and be proud of, knowing that YOU made it. Something completely unique to you, something that wouldn't have existed if you killed yourself last year.

A good place to start is Andrew Loomis' "Fun With a Pencil", and you can get it for free with the rest of his books here: http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/

Tfw drew a cute anime girl head last month

Because I would just draw titties all damn day.

I've drawn all my life, and I've always been shit.
I'm not going to stop, because I find it therapeutic, but I do know I'll never be any good.
Might do another life drawing session this Saturday.

I picked it up at the start of the year, then remembered why I stopped when I was younger. If you aren't genetically predisposed to easily pick up drawing, you're fucked. If you didn't start drawing young, you're fucked.
Maybe you'll get lucky, though. Pic related, this is from an old woman who tried to learn. People thought being bad was a stylistic choice, so they put it on a pedestal. Some of her work is in the white house now.

>can't draw for shit with wacom
>tfw haven't touched it in weeks

I draw even worse with a tablet. I imagined drawing all kinds of cool stuff, maybe staring my own webcomic etc. but goddamn it's so difficult to draw with a tablet.

Loomis truly is the biggest traditional art meme of all time.

Looks better anyway

Awesome thanks for the encouragement OP.

Now can you show me how I can earn some bitcoins without going outside so I can pay my rent for the rest of the year?
>>
>>25748465
Of course you have to practice a new medium.
What the fuck?
Just make goofy terrible OC comics for 4chan, nobody gives a shit here.

Hobby, not profession, anon. Art can only make your money if you're starting off from a good place.

I tried using that book but it was a waste of time. I progress faster by copying IRL shit or pictures and then drawing them again with my imagination.
>>
>>25748536
just get decent enough to get commissioned by furries and swim in money drawing whatever they want you to draw

Is the /ic/ sticky a good place to start for beginners?
