When did you first started to draw?

i can’t really give you a concrete answer because i’ve always drawn… but it’s in my faq

Q. How long have you been doing art?

A. As long as I can think tbh. But I’ve started taking it more seriously in 2011; Thats when I bought my tablet. I used to work with Paint Tool SAI back then but I switched to PS when I got my MacBook.

Uh Hello! I am trying to teach myself how to draw and, if you don't mind me asking, do you have any advice or tips you can give me or any books that might help as well? I really like your art style and I'm aiming to draw like that but I have no idea how. I'm a beginner (which means I have no arts as of right now, hoping to change that later). Thank you and I apologize if I wasted your time.

wow I’m really flattered that you’re asking me for advice but i must warn you that i’m not a professional and everything i know about drawing is basically self-taught (more like the internet taught me)…
But the best how-to-begin-advice i can give is to just get a sketchbook and a set of pencils and start drawing. I always take mine with me and it’s awesome because it helps you improve so much. When you start drawing your surroundings or random people on the bus you learn to not just see but observe these things and I think thats kind of a basic skill you need to improve before getting into the theoretical stuff. For almost everything else (techniques, anatomy, composition, light/shadow, colours etc)  there are tons of good tutorials online but I’d suggest getting comfortable with a pencil (or a tablet pen if you want to get into digital art) first. And tbh just… draw… It takes some time but you’ll eventually improve TRUST ME I’ve been there.I always find it super uncomfortable when people tell me that I’m “just talented” or that they “could never draw like me since they don’t have the talent” because it basically invalidates all the hard work I’ve put into improving myself. So yeah… it is hard work and it can get frustrating but it’s also an incredibly fun and rewarding hobby yay (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
