Now I know how you think it is, I'm just an emo fuck who can't take compliments or adore himself. You know?
These people who can really draw shit, and make it look both personal, and good but still say " I can't draw".
Here's the catch, everyone can draw something personal, but to make it look good is a different story.
If you can draw a human (inb4 stick-man), and make it look good, congratulations, you can draw and you can make yourself better by adding more personality to your drawings.
However, people like me instead, can't make anything look good. Anything.
And don't get me wrong here either, I know that drawing is practicing, but you can only practice if you know what you are doing in the first place.
I'm a patient man, I play guitar. You can actually compare drawing to playing instruments.
You either can play, or you can't.
OBVIOUSLY you can learn shit if you bang your head to the wall, draw a same fucking thing over and over again until it's in your muscular-nervous-memory -whatevethefuckingthing and you can draw it with your eyes closed. Same goes with guitar, stare tablatures and play that shit. CONGRATULATIONS YOU FUCK, NOW YOU CAN DO SHIT WHAT SOMEONE ELSE DID 7 FUCKING YEARS AGO!
Try to add something to that song/drawing you trained so goddamn long, and you're fucking doomed.
Oh man my mind is so full of fuck right now, sorry if this is getting too long but I have to pour it all out!
Let's make it even clearer, I can learn a song with a guitar and add some of my "own" shit to that, you know like different chords, different solo or whatever. No problem, I'm not good at playing yet, but fuck that, I can still do that without learning the whole shit from the begin.
When I draw, I can draw a pair of pants, a shirt and maybe even an axe, but when it comes down to combining them, i'm screwed. I just can't do it. Not to even mention if I'd have to draw those items from a different angle. Hah, fuck off!
I'm twentytwo years old now, and i've drawn propably million things, bought thousands of notebooks for drawing, i've watched dozens of "learn how to draw" -videos, read hundreds of "learn how to draw" -books. And still I can't draw shit.
The picture above is the sample of my skills. I even drew a baseball bat to him so he can kick the shit out of anyone who laughs. I'm not shitting you, that's the best I can do.
"But it's done with paint lol" well fuck you, paint makes it look even better than freehanded!
I'd really love to draw, and my mind is always full of potential ideas of what to draw, but when I draw shit like above, I usually just let the ideas go (Wonder why..).
I'm a bit bitter about it, but mostly because of people who draw very well, but say that they can't draw.
If you can draw, be fucking happy about it and don't feel bad if you can't draw photorealistic characters, be concerned when your drawings are still similar to your first-grade ones like mine.
