Im looking to become a comic book artist, I dont have any background on fine arts/drawing and I dont know where to start. Whats the best way or path on becoming one? I really love looking at comic book art especially, Jim Lee's works. I know im motivated to become one but im afraid I might not have the talent? Is drawing something I can learn from scratch? Any tips or tutorials I can use to jump start my dream career. Thanks!

I hope for your sake you are young and not too attached to TV. One thing about art is it has to be your toy of choice. It's not some magic voodoo talent. Talent is all in your imagination and it's up to you to unlock it. Art is alot of fun and rewarding, especially comics. If you want to get into comics, the key is story telling through pictures. As a test try adapting a movie or book into a comic unless you allready have a story. Sequences can be extremely exhausting, but you will learn more than any class will teach you. Problem after problem will occure, but you can solve them.
