I need help in all departments. All I use is a pencil and white sheets, I don't have space at home for paint. Should I buy some books? I thought of going to some art school, but I'm not good enough at my age (20) and there doesn't seem to be any good ones here in Montreal anyway.
I can do what everyone says "practice, practice, practice" but that's all I ever do and I don't get much better at all. So there must be a reason why some become pros and others don't. What did they do? To me it is looking more and more likely that I won't become a good artists as most good artists were already quite good at around 18. I want to know what the pros did to get where they are.
