Is it possible to LEARN to draw?

repetition is repetition

you draw a damn line 100000 times, you will draw that line perfect, now try other shapes, such as ovals, circles.... use your imagination to put them together, then you can draw...talent comes from your imagination though...

If you're familiar with Keith Haring then you should know that repetition isn't simply just repetition. Repeating shit, creating patterns can be an art.

You can't learn talent. You can learn perspective, proportion, etc, all that bullshit they teach in art classes. But, if you don't have the natural born skill, it won't make much of a difference.


WRONG. Just because you don't have "natural born skill" doesn't mean anything. You can acquire it, fuck I sucked at drawing, but I drew every day as a kid. I was an art major since elementary school up until college. I just stopped because of my high school teacher being a total dick.
Dude discouraged everybody, he would talk shit about your work, yet never help you to improve it, his only excuse was "What if it was the real world?" my response is you're a fucking teacher, you're suppose to teach us not act like a big shot boss, mind you it was high school, not even college.

Regardless of my life, you can do anything even if you are not talented. Like the saying goes, "practice makes perfect."

There is no such thing as "natural born skill"( wtf is natural born skill anyway? ) everybody grows up drawing some people fullfill that passion and others stop. Anybody can learn how to paint and draw like Picasso and Da vinci but what you do want to say? whats your intent? The key to drawing and I guess anything in life is passion. YEA there are tools like proprotion,pespective, shading, etc that i reconmmend you should learn because it only going to make u better. However Intent is the most important thing than anything imo.

If you really what to learn to draw i would suggest going to an library or hit up a muesum study successful artist, learn there techniques there famous for a reason...... also sites like DeviantArt and Concept Art.org help because i was self taught and it has helped me in areas that would have taken me longer had i done it alone, and has expanded my mind being in community with people who are interested in learning about art.... good luck!blushing

p.s. dont let anyone discourage you and im DEAD ASS serious about that, if it something you really want to do.

You can learn to draw, but its also a talent, similar to hitting a baseball. Can you train, work hard, and learn to hit a baseball? Yes, you can. But there is always that kid who trains and works hard and will never make his Varsity high school team, while another kid just walks up to the field and can hit home runs. Meanwhile, that kid hitting home runs in high school will never make it to play college ball. Why? Because of natural born talent. With art, its the same, if you can't draw I'm sure by practicing you will become better, but you will never be good, because you lack the natural talent.

I'm just telling the truth that pussies don't want to hear.

Ok there are a lot of people with talent and still dont go anywhere,its what you do with it. talent means nothing without that ambition. You cant really compare Art to baseball. Art is more subjective it what the person feels at that moment.One person can say that drawing sucks and others can say its good.

lol@nosuchthingasnaturalborntalent

smh retards.
May 11, 2010 @ 18:29:10
if you dont have the passion for art, please just stop.
May 11, 2010 @ 18:44:16
lol@nosuchthingasnaturalborntalent

smh retards.


Was that directed that at me?.....lol because i dont give a fuck.

My point was and i will reiterate since some people cant comprehend was that ambition and a passion will take you farther then talent. This natuaral born talent bullshit or whatever you call it is just something to put people down anyway and make people feel inadequate but, in the end it really doesnt matter.

I think anyone can draw. If you want to be up there, it would all come in time not right away. Keep practicing.

AND THE HIPPOS WERE BOILED IN THEIR TANKS...

Start paying around with crayons/pencils and coloring books
March 06, 2013 @ 01:01:08
i think. just practice more 
March 06, 2013 @ 17:14:42
dude, if you create one thing, you can create anything. the best test is to put pen to paper
March 15, 2013 @ 06:47:45
There is an age old debate of wether you are born with the talent or is it nurtured. I believe everyone has the ability to create it's just not everyone has learned how. If you look at a lot of famous artists spec. renaissance artists, even up to Picasso, they have parents who are artists and taught them the skill. Often times it was ritualist that the Son would do the career path his father did (hence why you don't see a lot of famous women artist from the ren. period. ) 

I agree some people have the power of observation more keen than others. If you start now though will you be better than the guy who's been drawing and illustrating since middle school? Maybe, depends on how hard they pushed themselves -v- how hard you push yourself.

The best thing to do is like others have said, go take a class somewhere. It's invaluable to learning to illustrate anything. drawing I is a great start, then drawing II, and illustration classes as well   

I hope this insight helps.

buy a book called betty edwards learn to draw
March 18, 2013 @ 00:11:33
Yes it is possible.
March 18, 2013 @ 00:13:48
Op what do you want to learn?
March 20, 2013 @ 15:49:27
get some paper, and either a pen or a pencil. draw something. repeat a few times. you'll get confidence, draw more, and in turn get better. 

as long as you're having fun it won't feel like practice. 
March 20, 2013 @ 23:20:02
Start with copying basic features such as bodies and environments, even trace if you're still unconfident.

Everyone's already said it but practice really does make perfect.

Anyone who's elite at their craft had to start from the bottom and work their way up.

I was drawing stick figures at 3, 4 years old and through lots of practice worked my way on up to becoming a better artist. If this is truly a passion of yours you'll work on it until you get to where you want to be.
