First of all I'd like to congratulate most of you who submit your works here. They're amazing, so do I want to approach your arts' level.
I've started drawing few weeks ago and I am not sure if I'm going correct way. People say the best start is drawing still nature until it's almost perfect. But is it necessary if in future I'm going to draw from my imagination? And for this start should I stick with geometric forms ignoring extra details?
I also know that you'd say the best way to practice is practice...a lot...I can understand that but I'm not sure what should I exactly practice to get the best results.
And what common mistakes should I beware in my beginning of drawing journey? I'm sure there are lot of us very experienced in drawing who know what factors did slow you and what factors did speed you up .
Do you guys have any gold quotes, thoughts that make you want to practice hard? ^^ I'd love to have some kick in the ass...
And the last question related to the first one. I'm very interested in digital art, but should I skip it for a while until I'm fine with traditional drawing?
Have a nice day!
