I’ve taught some people to draw before, you’d be surprised by the results, watch this vid… hold on
Click bait joke aside, I have indeed taught people how to draw before, and all of them have reached really good levels in a very short time (as in less than a year).
What I’ve found out so far, is that, if you are more interested on it, you’ll learn quicker, because you just dedicate more time to it, the ones who have stuff to do may take a little longer, but as long as you keep at it you’ll get there, seriously, people don’t even realize how easy it is to draw something.
However, for me at least, the talent, or genius as some may call it ( grant us eyes ), comes into play when deciding what to draw: subject, composition, technique, deciding how to use those is what makes a good work of art, anyone can make a landscape or portrait, but putting that something else on it, that’s what’s on the artist.
Anyone can learn how to use some tool and be a master with it, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to produce something of worth with it.
Just look at our very common hobby for examples, anyone can learn how to use Unreal or Unity and put something worth the try out there, but whether it’ll be the next Hollow Knight, Obra Din or big massive hit depends more on the creativity than anything else.
