@GreenLinzerd😓 Training? Uh…
But well, frankly I'd prefer to chalk my current skill to regular exercise and some amount of discipline than to talent. Speaking of talent and exercise; you draw really well, what's your training schedule like?
@GreenLinzerdWell no kidding. I was just trying to fit tehwatever's use of the word into my answer because that's the closest thing I do to "training".
I wouldn't call it 'training'.
I think the word we're looking for here is 'practice'.
Look at virtually any artist here, and you'll see a noticeable improvement from their first uploads when put beside their latest artwork.
@GreenLinzerdEh, I don't think needing to warm up has much to do with talent. It's a recommended thing in general. I sometimes do very quick warmups and then start drawing whatever I wanted to do in the first place. It does still take me a bit to get into the zone though…
As for training, I kinda pick up a habit of drawing freehand circles, straight lines, ICS curves and point to point single strokes before I even try to sketch. I told you, I'm not really gifted so I need to warm up before going in.
If I sketch before warming up then my circles look squiggly or flat on one side, my lines look uncommitted and my curves don't bend where I want them. I usually do about five minutes warm up draw for an hour / 45 minutes, then take a ten minutes break, then draw again until I'm out of time.
