How to Improve your Drawings Outside of Drawing
Community Week
If you've ever read articles about how to improve your art, you're sure to have heard one thing over and over - practice, practice, practice! While this is most definitely correct and undeniably crucial, I find that a big part of my improvement actually comes from the things I do outside of drawing.
What are these "things", you say?
First off, before you try to improve your art, you need to...
Have the right mindset
Understand and acknowledge these points:
Improvement is hard work. You will need to put in a lot of effort to achieve good results.
Improvement takes time - and it comes in small steps. You cannot fly to excellence in a week - nor a month.
There will always be people better than you and you will inevitably fail once in a while. Don't dwell on this - instead, learn as much as you can from it.
You will need to take advice with an open mind. Learn from critiques and do not be offended if they are harsh - the more mistakes people point out

Game of Thrones, Though
Happy GoT weekend, everyone! In celebration of the premiere, here are Key and Peele’s Liam Neeson(s)-obsessed valets, taking a break from raving about their favorite action star and getting swept up and Game of Thrones madness. Watch as the reenact almost every major death in the first four seasons of the series, and hilarity ensues.
