Hello everyone, glad I actually found someplace like this. Here's the thing my drawing skills are quite lacking. I would really like to improve and I hear the best way is to practice. I'm starting up a routine to do at least 20 mins of drawing a day mostly gesture sketches and the like. My question to all of you true artists out there is, is this a good way to actually practice, I've been in college for about 3 years with a great deal of art focused classes and my skilsl, though having improved, aren't the best. Should I just keep practicing?-or-Are there different routines out there that I can focus on?


Another thing is shading, I hear most of art is shading, I suppose I'm not so bad, should I post some art here to get critiqued?

Hi, and welcome.

Suggest that you check out the responses to

My love for drawing is rekindling, but how can I draw better?


There are some excellent suggestions, including Betty Edward's books.  I found them to be very helpful, even though I really hate to draw.  It's my least favorite part of making art.
