Did you have a natural ability or did it come to you after practicing or from having classes.
and no amount of classes seems to improve me either.
As I grew up I practised less and my ability seems to have got worse. I now have the drawing capabilities of a 5 year old.
Not sure if that really answers the question though.
Would it have been greatly improved by going to classes.
but yes I think as with anything I could have been better with more practice, both in and out of lessons.
I only realised what I was doing wrong when I started taking the initiative more.
I think A-Level art panders too much to people with no fucking skills.
I occasionally have to do rough technical-type drawings for work and it's actually embarrassing. They look like a toddler's scribblings.
I like pencil drawing the best. In fact I think I drew the artwork for a mix CD for Balonz of a gorilla playing the guitar. That was average.
Okay at drawing from photos but drawing things from my imagination is never gonna happen, unlike jazzballet and morrissey etc.
But even then you need to practice a lot to get to a good standard. It's a very tricky skill to learn and takes a lot of dedication.
I don't have that dedication :[ I've been told I have a knack for drawing though, I've just neglected the skill so long because it's such a huge amount of work to develop it.
