Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Ive always drawn, but never in a serious way, like Ive never sat down for more than like a few hours to draw, and never more than once a day, hell I sometimes go weeks without doing it. I think Im to easily annoyed by my lack of understanding and skill, it takes me a while to grasp certain drawing concepts, and Ive sort of hit a wall. Im 20, and really just wondering if, based on this sketch I did, I should pursue it any longer. I think I really need to just bunker down and work my ass off, cos its always just been something I do in the background, never serious. Im also easily frustrated, I get annoyed quickly with myself, like I expect it to be perfect even though I never practice and am a lazy ass. I also sort of get bored of a pic and rush it towards the end.
The reason why Im asking this is i dont have any equipment, no good pens, pencils, no graphics tablet, so im wondering whether you can see any fundamental talent, because honestly I think if I really get serious about it I have a chance at becoming quite good, but as it stands I just sort of fluke mediocre stuff without any real understanding of drawing, of figures, shapes, shades, that kind of stuff. Im not after any specific advice really, cos you've got it all mapped out in the stickied threads, just a yay or nay on whether I have any talent that could be developed into actual skill.
Also help with the colour scheme would be awesome, since im hopeless at that also.
Edit: I just realised theres a topic for this, so you can delete if necessary, sorries
