Allright, then I'm soothed = D I just read this so often and it bothers me. It's really hard if you're not a very good artist and the good ones see their sketches as 'nothing special', but for us, the 'lower ones', everything you do is special and fascinating, because even the simple drawings can catch a special thing and capture it in this sketch. Or maybe some people don't realize it and see their practice different then other watchers do, I don't know.
Well you're not gonna believe it but, I started drawing seriously only this year, about February. That's when I started working on my fundamentals and learning everything that was lacking in my art. Mind me I'm still learning. As for when I started drawing frequently, I was about 16 or 17. I have an Improvement Meme in my gallery, check it out if you want
