I'm an artist. I'll be posting my stuff on here.
What? When I was a new player, I found sorceries to be much more confusing than instants.
You’re right! You don’t improve just from practice, and that’s because you need a combination of things in order to see the progress you’re seeking. Not ONLY is it practice, but it’s also your personal learning pace and open-mindedness to find inspiration that you need to learn about yourself. Heck. I just turned 21 and I still can’t draw a six-pack on a man without making it look like a turtle shell.
It’s okay if you don’t know how to draw something yet.
That’s the beauty of drawing, is that there’s always, always something new to learn and grow from. Don’t rush yourself! The road can sometimes be hard, but it’s a very rewarding feeling when you achieve your goals.
It just takes some research and references to build a comfortability to branch out and experiment on your own! It’s all up to you. Just don’t beat yourself up about something you’re struggling with. Take your time!
"Practice doesn’t make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect."
Practicing mistakes will only solidify those mistakes. Not to say you shouldn’t practice until you know as much about anatomy as Michelangelo, but an artist should always strive to improve at least one thing every time he or she draws.
By the way, six packs are easy! I drew up a quick guide for them for you and anyone else who’s interested.
