    Aside the fact that you could study and practice human anatomy, what do you need an art movement for? Just draw creatures and animal art if that's your thing.

    If you want to draw creatures it's a good idea to study some animals so that you can combine different elements of them to make a creature, Also you may not be good at human anatomy now, but if you studied it for a while you would defiantly get better. As for landscapes doing studies of them would help you out a lot too, studies are always a good way to learn how to draw something you haven't drawn before. However knowing the basics of art is essential so make sure you have them down.

    Yes. Check out abstract art.

    That is a bad reason to avoid something. You become good at something by studying it, not by avoiding it.

    You have to study reality to invent new things that seem real.

    Thing is, you will be horrible at it until you start working it. Just like I was (am *cough*) and like so many other
    good artists were.

    This is the time that separates the dedicated from the posers. While your peers will be languishing about
    doing 5 dollar commissions and tracing from 'How to Draw' anime manuals for the next 10 years, you'll be
    landing contracts and big time employment.

    This industry is for the tough, if anyone tells you its easy, they are talking utter crap. Frustration is a major
    part of it. But conquering that and seeing actual improvement through proper life studies and just from
    having drawn seemingly mundane objects is a fantastic rush which you can experience again and again.

    Well... if your just starting out ..... don't focus on anatomy. Like many of the recent threads in here and answers to other people. Focus on getting simple form down. Learn to draw squares and cylinders and all that jazz well then work your way up.

    If you can't draw those well I wouldn't even bother with anatomy for some time.

    The only way you get better at figure drawing, is doing figure drawing.
    Drawing simple objects help you get better at constructing the figure.

    Even if you can draw awesome circles and simple objects, it doesn't mean your anatomy or figure drawing attempts will be good.

    I was being a big flippant at the idea of "oh if I draw this it will be horrible and I'll get upset"
    It's very tiring to see people give up before they even start or even have that mentality.

    If you as a child were too afraid of walking because you would fall and hurt yourself, you'd still be crawling on the ground instead of walking upright. You wouldn't ride a bike, learn to use utensils, play a video game etc because you may fail.

    That's why I said, either join the club of people who know they'll get a horrible result because they're trying or keep making excuses.
    Drawing is not for the instant gratification group. It takes time and you'll get frustrated, it's OK. However not drawing because you're afraid to get a horrible result, well then maybe art isn't for you.

    I'm not telling people to stop drawing or quit - far from it. My message is the opposite. If you want to quit because you are afraid of making mistakes or not coming out right - that's the worse thing you can do.

    If it sounds like quitting is easier than not drawing, then you know what your options are then.

    I posted something about learning to walk but apparently Arshes said it first.

    Start out with loose gestures from observation. Don't worry about details, work on getting a readable figure and action. Then you can start adding things like muscles and boobs on it.

    If you push through this, you'll gain more than just drawing skills
