(this is an older sketch but my skill is similar)

I think I'm starting to understand the big ideas of how form works, but I need more practice with values/tones. Hair is also something I want to get better at drawing (still looks like spaghetti).

I think I improved in the last 2-3 years, but I did take a long break, and I should have just kept going instead of letting time pass.

Having a job + drawing is tough and I would definitely think taking some time off (1year) to just focus on drawing/painting) would be a good idea. If I can make art my main job then that would be ideal.

My goal is to reach as much the old masters as possible. It's going to take 20 years but I don't care I'm basically a loner so I don't mind giving up my life to achieve something great.

I'm perpetually stuck in experimenting, but I have a baseline cartoon style which seems to slowly get more and more refined. However for the last ~6 years I've been seriously stagnating due to depression and OCD taking up my energy and time.
>managing day job/art balance (not possible)
This year has probably been the worst practice-wise because I started studying. However it is for a nice introverted low-effort job which won't take all my energy later on, it would be pretty ideal if I can make it through this education. I'm hoping I can make an effort art-wise after this is over. However I'm struggling with the education too. Used to be a NEET for ~5 years before.

I know a sixteen year old, she began art classes about a year ago and is already making masterpieces. It's fucking insane the way she jots out accurate as fuck artwork.

Somewhere where I could draw consistent quality human anatomy and place humans and other objects in an 3d environment instead of abstract flat-ish scene while also be able to use different camera angles.

That is the great illusion.

Maybe she worked harder than you in that year, or had her studies better structured, or had been learning artistic principals in one form or another for years before physically trying to find an application... or maybe it's simply not that hard to become a goddamn photo copier nowadays if that's your goal and it really is just something that takes months to master now that the guide lines for how to do it have been objectively discovered and documented.

Rant time. I hate drawing hate painting hate art but I took that route long ago before I knew about those fucking fundies. I used to love art so much. Now I'm stuck in fundies and been stuck in them for years. I get depressed just drawing fucking cubes and perspective it's so fucking boring. I couldn't have know everything I know now so I'm not regretful but I am bitter about my life now, bitter about how life is stupidly designed to make some of us waste crucial years on things we hate and getting fucked after. Can't say for sure but I'm thinking my future is fucked. I was fucked from the start, destined to get fucked over and over again. My art is nice now yes but I draw slow as fuck and have no joy in it. If I showed you my art you would ask why I'm not working?? it's simple, I have no pleasure in it and I draw slowly. In the industry you have to draw fast in 90% of jobs. I would have honestly take a different career. But now I'm old and tired so fucking tired from all the years of drawing. So now what? I don't know what job to do. I honestly despise and hate art and can't even enjoy looking at it anymore. I wish I could find a decent paying job that can secure my future. Something not too hard that's comfy.. I don't care if it's boring as long as I get paid DECENT and it's secure. I don't know what I will do. I'm just writing my own story, I am pretty sure most of you will make it.

I don't really have work to post. I mean I have a DA I post stuff to some times but it's all garbage. I only have it to encourage the social media side and slowly begin that. I'm not good enough yet.
Of course you still have a chance, though.
I have a DAD I post daily (really, really helped a bunch). All I ever draw is either garbage or practice, I'm currently studying Constructive Anatomy.
I found the date I started last year which was only a few days ago (plus a year, kek) so I grabbed the same date DAD post and made a thing for you.

47 here. I’ve been drawing every day for about 9 months now with a big 20 or so day break this past winter because of being sick.
Only draw from life. None from imagination.
Not sure if it is only my journey or it comes automatically with age but I seem to be able to put ego aside and am learning kinda fast I think.
I’m able to pretty successfully separate failure from feeling like a failure. As a result I learn from it and don’t get too down. But it’s still very hard.

Plus I don’t play video games or even own a tv. So I have much time to draw if I want. I draw between 3-6 hours a day.

I’m in preparation to paint representationally in oils.

I want to be able to bring forth an image as well as Odd Nerdrum.

32 - my friends say that 30s > 20s and that 40s > 30s. You waste less time worrying about trivial shit, you have more money and use your time more wisely.

>where your skills are currently at
I draw regularly now which is most important to me

>where you'd like your skills to be
I’d want to make a piece of art instead of just drawings

>how has your art changed over the years
I used to only copy refs, now I can draw from imagination

>managing day job/art balance (not possible)
For ~5 yrs I would work 8hrs + commute 5hrs + draw 4hrs. There is plenty of time. I recently quit working after 9yrs to enjoy other facets of life. I have no intention of working again.

>the loss of your ligameme
Nah - there is plenty of time to enjoy drawing

28 here.
>where your skills are currently at
beginner...
>where you'd like your skills to be
At least 3-5 years experience better
>how has your art changed over the years
It hasn't really. I stopped drawing for years and recently picked it back up.
>managing day job/art balance (not possible)
I'm lucky enough to be NEET so I don't have to balance a job with art.

Sorry, 3-5 years of self-study in your free time to go from literally not knowing anything to "professional" is likely not going to happen. Whats most likely to happen is a lot of spinning tires not knowing what you're doing wrong and what to study.

By hours alone that should be enough. Properly structuring the studies is another matter.

It used to be that we thought adult brains to be somehow "frozen" after 30. It is now known that Neuroplasticity only decreases as we are aging, but we still have enough to learn easy stuff like becoming a Doctor, or even hard stuff like electrical engineering.
Your Therapist is Obsolete and you should consider going to one who isn't still Running in the 90's. May as well talk to you about the Right Brain or Psychoanalysis. Obsolete. Delete.

Improve your observational skills. Loomis is trying to show you that the head construction to the left is what will get you 50% of the way to a realistic head drawing like the two on the left with correct proportions - then you can just build ontop of it by adding the more complex/subtle features using the construction lines to guide you.

That's the stupidest shit I've ever heard. Your therapist clearly wants you to mire in sad obscurity so you'll keep paying them. Stop paying someone else for your own mental health.

I'm 31. I stopped drawing for like... 10 years. Only found ic recently so I'm back at it. Wish I never stopped. This is probably the best thing I've made recently. Not much compared to many here but I'm improving pretty quickly by working 2-3 hours a night. Haven't missed a day yet.

Couldn't help but notice you didn't post your own work. Any particular reason? I mean obviously sempai, you must be really good since you didn't like mine. Surely you shouldn't deprive the rest of us of your stunning masterpieces.
