    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.

    Haha, I know exactly what you mean. In high school I could never manage to convince people how pitiful I am compared to artists who are actually talented.

    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.

    you know what's not the best thing to answer there? "you mean a good draftsman". That shit'll get you beat up in highschool. Not that I'd know, just saying...

    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.
