    ---> that word is so important here. Erase it and I'll be in trouble.
    Regardless, you have more talent than I do in that department. I couldn't draw that well to save my life.

    Very good, the drawing reminded me of Steve Martin. Keep up the good work (I can do stick figures, that's about it).

    Thanks sir!

    Well, if you could draw and ALSO be the great writer that you are, that would be too unfair! Lol.

    I used to hate to draw hands, so I forced myself to do them, actually looking for opportunities to draw/paint them. Now I actually look forward to doing them. In fact, I'm working on a commission right now with a couple hands featured prominently. I still have a lot to learn about rendering them well, but I've improved much in the last couple years.

    Now feet, on the other "hand"…

    I guess the point of what I'm suggesting is that you shouldn't avoid your weak areas. Attack them. Conquer them. It's just art, after all.

    How were able to improve? Just kept drawing hands?
    I tried drawing again last night, (after years of not practicing) and I think I'm hating the hair again! Lol. Thanks sigma!

    From my very limited experience, besides some core fundamentals that you can study to learn technique (foreshortening, perspective, color values, shading, etc.), most of drawing is practice. It's training the eye to break up complex shapes into basic shapes and (in the case of perspective) re-aligning drawing problems into draftsmanship problems.

    However, it's far from impossible, and it's no fun if you look at it as a checklist of things to do. You should work on what you like. For instance, I like drawing the figure. So I draw the figure a lot. I started copying (a few months ago) and moved on to imagination and iterative drawing. Now I'm learning perspective to help me with figure-drawing, and it's so similar to buildings, and atmospheres! Now I want to draw buildings!

    And trust me, you don't need formal schooling for this. You can learn everything you need online. It's a fact. I hope sigmadog can provide more information and inspiration because I used all of my five-cent words in this post!

    That is a very detailed answer!
    Thank you!

    When I was a kid, I would draw rooms and houses, pretty much like an interior designer kind of thing.

    Also, I'm a copycat when it comes to faces and people. Everything I draw has to have some "model". I would copy the illustrations on mangas and comics. For the real people, I ask for pictures.

    I would love to learn to draw waterfalls and mountains.
    You're sitting there, staring at that wonderful creation and trying to recreate it on paper. Ehhhh.

    I'd like to see some of your building illustrations someday!
