I've started drawing on 21st December 2013. Since that day I draw everyday for about 1.5 hours per day and so far I did not skip a single day.

I do not take any art classes and study art completely on my own. However, it seems that the Internet becomes one of the best teachers nowadays with all these books/videos/tutorials/galleries/etc. available around the net, so I guess it should be more than enough.

The main question I'll try to find the answer to: is it possible to become a good artist starting from the absolute zero and without a specific education, and how long would it take? The Internet says, "yep, it is possible, somewhere between 3 and 5 years". Okay, I hope it's true.

Thank you!
For me, it's just some kind of a positive habit which I try to maintain.

What books do you use to learn drawing from?

During the 1st year of drawing, I've read these ones:
- Betty Edwards, "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"
- Bert Dodson, "Keys to Drawing"
- Brenda Hoddinott and Jamie Combs, "Drawing for Dummies"
- Andrew Loomis, "Fun With a Pencil"
- Michael Hampton, "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention"
- Giovanni Civardi, "Drawing Portraits: Faces and Figures"
- Ernest Norling, "Perspective Made Easy"
- Kimon Nicolaides, "The Natural Way to Draw"
- Andrew Loomis, "Drawing the Head and Hands"
- Nicholas Lee, "Fundamentals of educational academic drawing" (it's in Russian)

And as for the following years, I can mention such authors as Glenn Vilppu ("Drawing manual"), Scott Robertson (on shading), Jack Hamm (seascapes/landscapes).

The most valuable youtube channel (on academic drawing): 
www.youtube.com/user/WwwSkulpt… (but it's Russian).

And recently I've attended to an online college of fine arts, but it's Russian only too.

Peace. It's not enough to become a good artist, at least to me. What's next after you've become a good artist? Besides being an even better artist?

Keep it up!

Hello!

>It's not enough to become a good artist, at least to me.

Agreed. But again, it may be insufficient and mandatory at the same time. I mean, good drawer isn't always a good artist. But good artist is always a good drawer. And while it's hard to become a good artist, the route to become a good drawer is more or less straightforward. So why not to master *skills* first, it's quite obvious it'll be needed anyway.

>What's next after you've become a good artist?

To be honest, I don't know. And I didn't know from the very beginning. It's all started as a hobby, then it became a habit, and now it's more like a personal challenge. With no final goals at all.

Thanks!
