Talent by dwaynebiddixart Talent by dwaynebiddixart
My friend was talking about how we improve in art, not because of talent but because we put in the work to get better. There is no shortcut, you have to learn, study, do it, and do it again until it makes sense. Then we do it all over again.

So I am showing the first drawing I had ever uploaded to the internet, all the way back in 2004 and a redo of it today. Lot of learning and working to get there. And if I can, you can too!

Enjoy!
Dwayne

I agree.  The only shortcut to getting better (then good, then great, then greater still) is to work at it.  I call it a shortcut because it's the quickest way to improve and learn.  People don't notice the hours (days, weeks, years) we spend trying to get better, they just say "you're so talented" or "you're so skilled" or "I wish I had your ability."  The way I see it, yes they do.  My "talent" is desire.  My "skill" is determination.  My "ability" is time and effort.  Every skill can be learned if we have the desire and the determination, and if we spend enough time making a genuine effort.

Shit, now I feel like making a Tony Robbins video or something. Sweating a little...

Lol TED talk time!

But you are right, talent may get us started, but work drives us on.
