However, thank you for inspiring me to continue practicing! Your tutorials really break it down so that you can see, 'oh, they don't just wave their hand and POOF a beautiful picture appears' - it makes it look more like an achievable goal, not something you just know how to do by instinct.
Thank you! It is mostly about practice, and very much about persistence and patience. There aren't many people that keep practicing long enough to become really good - not because they lack the talent, just because they lack the patience, or, later, when they have a job and a Family, they simply lack the time. But if you really love creating art, I hope you can keep practising and get better and better.
No one just sits down and creates fantastic art in 5 minutes.
