SO DA is now doing this thing where I reply to a message, and it doesn't always get removed from my inbox automatically, like it always has for the least decade.... So if I've responded to your same comment multiple times, it's probably because I th
If you are wondering why I haven't been replying to comments as swiftly as I usually do, it's because the new inbox for DeviantArt is a bit cumbersome to get used to. Every time I send a reply, a "reply successful" notification appears at the top a

How did you learn to draw so magnificently? Did you take classes, read books, or something? Your art is amazing.

Thank you! I am self taught. I practice a lot and use reference, and push against the things that I struggle with. I self criticize and try to find areas to improve, then I seek solutions that other artists use, to improve those weak areas in my work. I am self motivated and I work very hard. Drawing is the thing I do more than anything else.

Are there any books or references you'd suggest for someone that wants to learn how to draw?

No, I don't generally have any book suggestions, as I pretty much just do as I stated above. Lots of practice, study of real life (and sometimes other artists), experimentation, and self criticism, with the goal to improve.


YouTube tutorials are good too, just search "how to draw/paint/etc" and as you learn new art terminology, google how to do those, and just keep following that rabbit hole.
