    Questions From A Beginner on Sketch Art, Help Much Appreciated

    Hello, I am new here and would like some advice on how to continue my growth as a sketch artist. Here are some questions regarding this:

    1. What are the biggest wastes of time in becoming a better sketch artist?

    2. What are your favorite instructional books/videos and resources on drawing?

    3. What are the biggest mistakes you see many beginning sketch artists make?

    4. Even at the higher skill levels, which mistakes are most common?

    5. What are the stupid myths about drawing that you hear over and over again?

    6. What are your key principles for becoming a sketch artist?

    Thanks in advance!
