I get a lot of suggestions on my critique threads, which is good. I looked through the Loomis books, seem very helpful. I practiced perspective with the help of a couple tutorials, and I tried studying the anatomy of animals.
And none of it has helped.
I'm still the crappy artist I was before. I don't understand the Loomis books because I can't think in 3d, same with the animals. And how the hell am I supposed to apply perspective if I can't draw still life?
I've given up on art before, but come back after a couple days because I've always wanted to have fun with my art. But now my childhood dream of working as an artist has come back and I don't feel I can really not take this seriously anymore. I wish I could get better, I want to, it's not that I don't care, it's that I can't do it.
You people here have probably gone through this... how do you keep going? I like art, it's just that I'm honestly terrible at it. How do you get better when everything seems hopeless?
