    Thanks, I feel a bit stagnant with my drawing to be honest. I draw maybe 1-2 pictures a year if I'm lucky these days as time escapes me so quickly and I get busy doing other things in my spare time (like gaming) and forget about drawing. I usually only draw if there's a character that really grabs me or I have an artistic urge these days.
    Well, if you're drawing because of the fun of drawing then it's okay, but if you want to make something out of your drawing you will need to practice more. In the second case, try to make time for it in weekends like one hour or two. When I read something really good, I feel jealous so I go start writing so maybe try to see different art styles, I hope it will motivates you to draw more.

    All the best. =)

      I definitely find motivation through seeing other's work or through watching anime/playing games, usually it's at the worst time for me too. As in, last year I was away in Italy for nearly a month, happened to come across an amazing digital piece by Sakimichan on deviantart and all I did was want to draw, but no drawing materials etc and being away from home wasn't really able to.
      I think I got back and dabbled a little though for memory.

      Whilst it'd be great to draw full time, I don't think I'd have it in me. I love it and it relaxes me, but if I had to do it for a living I think I'd hit a creative brick wall pretty quickly. Not to mention I can't draw my own material from my head at all. Something I've always wanted to do and I did try a bit about 15 years back but never really kept at it.. was easier to copy and recreate someone elses idea.
      I long for that of which i dream of...

        Come on! If I were you, I would've done the same. Italian architecture is da art! You're forgiven, no worries.

        You don't have to do it as a full time thing, if you practiced you will get better and who knows? You might find yourself making a profit out of it, be open to chances.

        You tried to draw from your imagination 15 years ago and you failed? Maaaan, 15 years ago I thought the moon was a glowing sticker circle that follows me wherever I go. Seriously, Try! You have nothing to lose, you could even go for some tutorials, it's on Youtube. Maybe being able to draw different eye shape and different face expressions will help you create your own art.

          These are really awesome!
          And I just need enough of you to dull the pain, just to get me through the night 'til we're twins again
          'Till we're stripped down to our skeletons again, 'till we're saints just swimming in our sins again
          I've got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match,
          what a catch..

            Thanks guys

            Hopefully with some luck and inspiration, my current frame of mind will continue. I seem to be on a mini self improvement bender this past 2-3 weeks. It may just be because of having some time off and a new year etc, so we'll see... I'd like to pick up a pencil again and give something new a go. Just need that motivation and time etc.

            There's a lot of resources out there these days, even more so than when I first started learning to draw. I'm sure if I went back to the basics and practiced my own pictures drawn from imagination rather than from something in front of me, whilst the start would look pretty sh*tty I can imagine... the end result, provided persistence prevailed, should be much better after a lot of time and practice.
            I long for that of which i dream of...

              It must be going around because I've been feeling the same. I hope it keeps up. I haven't drawn as much as I have in the last 6 months as I have in A really loooong time.
