    Despite reading that article, I just don't think I'll ever have the ability to improve.

    Everyone can draw, it just takes a lot of practice.

    Completely agree with that, It just takes practice. When i was a kid i would draw every week if i could. That's why I'm reasonably good now. All these people that go straight to learning software like illustrator without picking up a pencil in the past are going to struggle with some things. I'm not saying your never going to be as good as someone who can actually draw, But someone that's sketched out what he wants to do first is going to be a lot more efficient (in general) at creating artwork than the person that goes straight into illustrator.

    School doesn't privilege drawing in graphic design...

    Really speaks on my current dilemma. I have to make thumbnails, comps, and mechanicals for my project and my drawing is very horrible. Lol! Thanks for sharing!

    Sometimes a very important thing to remind myself of, esp. when seeing such an influx of graphic designer/illustrators

    Thanks for sharing this!

    I like to draw on paper. Just feel lazy vectorizing all the drawing. I love colouring it.

    I think drawing is something you either have or dont, and I know I dont! I couldn't draw to save my life, doesn't matter how much I practice, lol.

    Cool My excuse is...

    Too many analytical skills. I could help you out with sprucing up your metrics and analytical methods in a heartbeat. Too bad I draw like a child.

    i suffer massively from this affliction. i really should just suck it up and spend more time being analog, and have been trying to do so of late here and there.

    You have to spend at least 2 hours a day drawing everyday. Your skills will improve quickly.

    This was a really nice article. I found myself agreeing with some of the excuses and realized I have to believe in myself more (along with not being so lazy – just start practicing!)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting article! I used to make a lot of excuses myself, but I've stopped making excused and started practicing and I'm amazed sometimes that I am able to improve :)

    Thanks for sharing!
