Old man sketch


Here is a recent sketch that I have done in Photoshop using my wacom cintiq 27qhd (I am really annoyed about the news that there is going to be a new cintiq pro with no parallax effect and is going to be cheaper than the cintiq 27qhd going to be released in December, if only I waited!)
I have been looking online for tutorials on how to draw better but I just about disagree with all of them! There are a lot of tutorials on the internet especially on YouTube telling people that the best way to improve your drawing skills is to simply keep on drawing every day the the same thing over and over again to get better. Drawing something repeatable over and over again isnt going to make you better at drawing because your not going to magically grow an extra finger which is going to make you automatically better at drawing if you do. Practising like this could also make you worse at drawing as you might become disillusioned and fall into the habit of drawing as part of a formula rather than an using it as a means of expression.

Everyone has the ability to draw as good as any famous artists..

Yes drawing is about technique and practice will help you to refine your technique however more
importantly it drawing is about self belief and having confidence! If you rely too much on technique your drawing will be limited by your technique moreover you can send yourself absolutely mad if you
constantly worry about proportions or whether it will look right to others… what is more important is if your drawing looks right to you because at the end of the day that is the only real opinion that
counts because it is your art and your expression. SO DONT WORRY WHAT SNOOTY ART CRITICS HAVE TO SAY! What you should aim for is for your drawings to be just limited by your imagination instead of what others think and not to worry about if it the correct proportions because you can simply take a photograph of something if you want a picture of something that has the right  proportions.
