My usual stuff has been described to look like a "Sim's Character", but I never really understood what it takes to draw something real to LOOK REAL. Joseph makes it look soooooo eaaaasy! But he's right about one thing, it's all about practice.
If you want to be remotely good at anything, it's Practice, Practice, Practice. And not just ANY Practice, you actually have to not limit yourself and work on it for longer periods of time. Its a commitment that most people fear to dedicate themselves to, but if you absolutely want it, then you absolutely need to give it your All and your Time! Just like any relationship in the World, if you want your relationship in your love life, with your family, with your co-workers, friends, even yourself... If you want it to work, you have to practice the art of giving it your All and your Time.
So my friends, take the time to reflect when you gave up on anything and ask yourself if you want to be better. If so, the secret is Practice, it's as plain and simple as that.
