Tutorial: Study and Improvement
There comes a time where every artist sees something someone else has created and is either extremely inspired or extremely let down. I found myself conflicted though when I told myself "I'm good enough" but at the same time, kept looking at other people's work and asking, "Why can't I do that?" Well, maybe it was because I basically kept drawing the same thing over and over.

I don't usually do tutorials (Though this isn't exactly a "drawing" tutorial, haha), but I see this problem so much with other artists, including myself, who want to improve. If you enjoying drawing in a certain style, that's completely okay, too! But if you constantly find your work inadequate and want to improve and be able to draw other things, you will need to learn.

You're going to see a LOT of tutorials out there: How to draw hands, how to draw hair, how to draw clothing folds, how to draw butts, etc. They are all great--if you already know the basics of drawing. Otherwise, all this information can be very overwhelming. Save them for later, take them into consideration, but avoid overloading yourself with too much information.* Set your priority to focus on one or two primary things at a time, for a set amount of time (1 week? 1 month? Depends on what you're trying to learn and your learning pace)

Disclaimer:
I'm very sorry if this tutorial comes off as "learn to draw realistically" but the idea behind it was that I, specifically and personally, wanted to learn a more realistic way of drawing. For someone else, it could be learning to draw animals or cartoons. But the idea would be the same where if you want to learn it, you'd need to actually look at and learn from references (thus the "drawing what you see"). For example, once you learn anatomy and how it works, your existing work evolves around these newly learned ideas. Artists who are aspiring to make the push to improve will find that there are so many ways to go about doing it.

There is no wrong way to draw or study art. There are tons of tutorials out there and this is just another one that someone may or may not find useful, or relatable.
