A very unenviable friendship.

I gotta say I love your comics they're so funny. Any tips for people who want to start learning how to draw?

If you are just starting out learning how to draw the best thing you can do is draw a lot and draw a lot of different things. Draw from life, draw from photos, draw from your imagination just don't draw the same thing over and over again in the same style. That's not to say if you like a particular style (like poke'mon, MLP or whatever else) you shouldn't spend time drawing it but limiting your self to just that style will hurt you in the long run.

I'd say it's also important to try out a verity of different media too. If you are just starting out it you may think you won't enjoy something like ink drawings but you will never know for sure until you try. If you have the time and money taking an art class is not a bad way to expose you to different media and different methods of creating art. I'm not going to claim that art classes or school are necessary to become a great artist but they can be helpful. I've had art teachers and classes that have been largely useless and I've had teachers that have been beyond amazing along with everything in between. Even in my worst classes though I generally have learned something. If was worth the time and money I spent on it is some what debatable but at lest I got something out of it.

The most important thing to remember is when you are just starting out a lot of the stuff you create isn't going to be very good. It will take a lot of time and effort to get good. I don't mean months and weeks I'm talking years and decades. Don't be discouraged by this it's something every artist has to work through. The most important thing to focus on is how much you personally have improved and not are you as good as someone else.

There are a lot of artists out there who's work I greatly admire. Their level of skills seems light years beyond what I will ever achieve; but I look back to my work from a year ago and I'm still somewhat amazed by how much I've improved. It makes me wonder what I will be able to do a year from now. That's what motivates me to continue to try and push past all self deprecation brought on by failure because I know that some day I'll be better but only if I keep trying.
