what do you suck at?
We all struggle at one thing or another. I beleive a study regiment could be perscribed to remedy it. IE if you suck at rendering: Do master studies. If your figures are stiff: Do 5 min sketches. If you struggle with facial expressions: Do film studies from comedies. etc

Pretty much everything, but that's to be expected from a beginner.
The problems I am trying to fix right now is really to concentrate on the subject I am drawing (meaning looking at the object or subject and remember where the line go as I am translating into a 2D form)
as well as render, shading, and tones.

I suck at being tall, dark, handsome and rich. Fuck it. It in no way interferes with my plans to destroy the political Parties of the US and be named Emperor...

Flashback-Squint and blur your eyes to look at the bigger shapes. Your first pass should look like nonsense to a layman. Think about the basic big shape.
Ilikae-Get a law dgree and become a hedge fund manager. Promise to handle the finances of a political party and embezzle the cash. Once that party has crashed the other party will regard you as a hero, then rince, wash and repeat.

You have hands and feet. Draw those every day until you feel comfortable. Just remember don't draw fingers right off the bat. Draw the catchers mit. Hands are never easy. I've seen plenty of pros get by with shitty hands, because they know how to obscure them enough to get away with it.
When it comes to cloth it's easy. Look at each fold as an arrow. just pay attention to form, gravity and the cloths reaction. If you are comfortable with quick sketches, then go to a cafe and sneak sketches of people.

Diarum- Don't do it man! You have so much to live for!
muramura- Get a book on whatever software and area you want to specialize in. There is always a step by step process for mastering the tech. Just keep in practice. If it's on the creative side, like character design, then you need to learn anatomy and figure drawing just like everybody here. Most 3d artists can hold their own as a 2d artist, same goes for animation.

I suck at establishing a good strong colour scheme that doesn't break my composition and at least implies some kind of form. Also, speedpainting.
As well as many many many other things, but right now that's the important one.
