Please, do not rush me to make your art. It will be done, I promise. If you rush me, your art piece will look sloppy.
Hit the Books (not literally) :
This sort of ties in with the sketchbook method. Believe it or not, studying the object you wish to draw makes huge improvements. We've all seen these studies somewhere. Scientist do this during/after experiments and what not. Artists here draw a subject multiple times until okay with the results.
Make pages in your sketchbook dedicated to simple sketches of anatomy, poses, animals, fur, trees, etc.
Not only that but go outdoors and collect materials like leaves, rocks and observe them.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat:
Draw a face. Good, not move over to another empty area and draw the same one again and again and again. Fill the page(s). Even better! Now skip a few pages and draw it again. Hey, don't look back at the original that's cheating.
Every time you draw the object, you should be getting quicker at it. So now clean it up every new drawing. And Repeat.
This builds repetition. Every heard of muscle memory? Well think of it as that but for your art!
Be a Scientist:
Probably one of the biggest reason why an artist doesn't improve is because of their biggest fear, change. Challenge yourself, experiment with different techniques, media, subjects. Nothing is a failure, just a lesson that was waiting to be taught. Exceed your limits and do a drawing in a completely deferent way! So what if you didn't achieve the look you were going for? Trust me, this has happened to me a lot, but I didn't give up.
Get Some Mental Ear Plugs:
Haters gonna hate. Ignore them.
They don't know your art like you do, so why do they care?
Photos are Friends:
If you wish to learn how to draw something find photos of it and mimic. Don't trace. I honestly feel like you accomplish nearly nothing from tracing photos/art. Freehand and mimic the shapes you see in the photo. This is going to help you a lot. Just don't rely too heavily on needing a photo reference.
Time to Lift some Weights:
Training is key. Im sure you wouldn't go run a marathon right off the bat (cause you might get hurt), you'd need to train yourself first and stretch.
Stretch = sketch!
Practice! You aren't going to get any better by making a drawing in 10 seconds, post it, then stop for months at a time to do absolutely nothing.
How many times have you heard the saying, "practice makes perfect"? Well, that is true to an extent. My music teachers likes to say "perfect practice makes perfect." So if you are ever bored, go check out some tutorials. You can learn from almost anyone! :3
This is another big problem. A lot of artists lack confidence in themselves and say,
"oh this was like a ten min. sketch. I suck...so...yah..so many things wrong wit dissss...so like what do you think?."
(totally guilty of this but not to this extent...)
This is gonna leave room for haters to puke their verbal vomit in your comment section. Don't advertise your self hate, it makes it easy for others to say bad things.
This isn't a tip to improve art, but just thought i'd put it out there...
Respect everyone, even if they say your art is ugly or say anything rude. Kill 'em with kindness!
