Have you ever been asked this? What was YOUR answer?
Just remembering how some people used to asked "How do you draw so good?", woot for grammar. Not to say i draw good at all, i stink, but this was in high school. My response was often "Practice.".
SO! Has anyone here ever had that? what were your answers? I guess i find it somewhat amusing that someone may think there is some super secret trick to it. Or something. Hope some fun can be derived from this, if not, let it sink to the bottom, and sorry for the waste of server space! .

I get every now and then and my response is the same as yours, "practice". Then they sometimes ask If I could teach them. That's where I get kind of annoyed because they expect me to just say, "Do it like this." and then just like magic they expect to be able to draw.

My usual answer was "magic." But then again, that's my answer to every question that begins with 'how.'

and but what i think when people say THAT, i just get very annoyed and get aggrivated by such stupid thing to say.
and yes i have been asked why i draw so well, i do say it takes practice and 90% percent of the tiem they respond confused or just unable to understand what it takes to develop such skills.
Do you know the muffinman?

Just ask: "How did you learn to drive a car?"

"I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and I exercise daily"
February 25th, 2006 #9i often get "you're a good draw-er"
But yeah, I've always felt awkward with something like that and gave response to the effect of "well, it's pretty much all I do..."

A few kids at my school tell me not to worry about drawing. They say "It's fine, stop editting it!" But "No it's not good enough. Other people can do it better." "Not other sophomores!" "No, but Proffesionals can" "YOU AREN't A PROFFESIONAL" "Not yet anyways."
And it usually goes on, people trying to figure out my logic. I don't even know my own logic, all I know is that I want to be really good, and the earlier I start the better I die.

And my response was... "Uhhh, I don't know."

I just say Im a natural. No one ever believes that it takes practice anyways. Might as well say you've been able to do it since birth

"Thomas Kinkade was my dad."
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

"my magic pencils, which were given to me by a lonely leprechaun, who only wanted to be loved... for one night"
I've never actually said that, but I kinda wish I had.
I actually used to stare blankly at people who asked that question until they realized I wasn't going to answer, or until they felt uncomfortable and left. I feel it is a perfect answer for every stupid question asked.

How come you guys are so hostile towards people that are clearly so impressed by your drawing abilities that they feel they wanna let you know? I take it as a compliment. I dont think they deserve a snooty answer. If I hear someone who is an excellent guitarplayer, and I asked him, it would only be that I acknowledged that I thought he was very skilled. Your "high and mighty" answers lead to the person feeling stupid, when all the wanted to do was to compliment you.
Be humble for gods sake, dont be pricks.
