I see you've been a good student of Betty Edwards, OP.

I have the book that she wrote (although with a different color and in a different language, you can see that one in a comment below), and it is practically 100% what you wrote above. She revolutionized teaching 'art' with a few other people, its a reeeeally good book, I can only recommend her works.

Really nice tutorial - thumbed, saved and favorited.
But I can't say, that I agree with Bob Ross' "Talent is a lie", because I actually do know quite a few people with real talent.
Actually anyone has a talent for *something* - something in which he is better then average person and has less difficulties in improving that particular skill.

I have a friend who can draw really nice with very little practice .. I have another friend (well, more like acquaintance) who in two hours learned to play the guitar better than me in a few months (also he can take almost any instrument and quickly learn how to play it). Another one is a good cook and does cooking naturally, without much learning .. etc.
But unfortunately not every talent is usefull in our society and also not every talent will be discovered or improved by that person, because he/she doesn't need or want to.

Talent doesn't usually mean that you are automatically awesome in *something*, but it's (really) easier for you to improve your skills in that *something*.

I personally don't know which is my stronger talent, but at least I can draw a little bit, but I need to practice if I want to improve my drawing skills and I know that..but unfortunately I'm also procrastinator

And btw this is second picture I draw with my new tablet after I stopped drawing for like 5 or 6 years (and even before that pause it was only a few pencil drawings a year, so it's not like I have much experience..I just liked to doodle some things or repaint some of my favorite drawings - for example those of Drizzt from Todd Lockwood .. but only in black and white, I started to paint with colors only after I recently bought).

P.S.: sorry for my english, I hope it was written understandably

my tutor told me drawing is 90% looking and 10% drawing
when we did nude drawings we literally had to look so closely at the model and hardly look at the paper, sometimes its mentally exhausting but its pretty damn good
thankyou op this is great

I could never draw at all. It's nothing to do with drawing with my brain, but rather my hands creating some of the worst abominations ever put to paper.

Good advice though, won't work for me.

my year 9 art teacher told me that real artists never erase a mistake, Me on the other hand went through more erasers than pencils.

The technique is actually quite accurate. Also, MS Paintskills are off the charts ladies and gentlemen.

I don't completely agree with the statement that talent is ******** . Some people have to work twice as hard to achieve the same result, and some are just born good. Sure perfection comes with practice and dedication, but a natural affinity comes in handy.
Some might find it as easy as taking a piss to draw at the first attempt, and some might struggle for years before reaching the same level.

hikewne, this is fantastic content.

I've always loved drawing, but I've struggled with natural and organic forms and subjects. I consider myself to be very good with drawing architecture and mechanical things, but when it comes to the natural forms of things such as trees, hills, and grass, I've never been able to get it to look right.

Could you possibly post something that helps people like me draw organic things?

Btw, this content was really good. Making the distinction between drawing exactly what the eyes see as opposed to the symbols that our brains create really helped me understand my already existing problem with drawing.

I tried my hand at drawing a few times. The horrors that were created that day will haunt me for eternity. I'll stick to writing, that I can at least do passably.

The book 'The new: How to draw on the right side of the brain' teaches all this and more, check it out or Google that **** in images, pops right up with before and after pictures of people who read it.
Also, 'talent is a lie' is both right and wrong, some people appear 'naturally good drawers' because they naturally use the right side of their brain then the left. For example, the percentage of good artists is higher in groups of people with dyslexia, because they were born with brains that connect better on the right side.

Except that "Talent is a lie" is just a lie to keep people without talent motivated

Artsy talent is the most common talent people pop out of their moms vaginas with

more like to give lazy people an excuse to not work.
Sure, some people are born with higher artistic ability, but in the long run their 'talent' gets them nowehre if they're not willing to work on it.
