Thanks, duey! I've just read your bio on the main site and saw some more of your stuff. Looks damn good ;)

I got a question. Since I'm a beginner (who only randomly drew stuff in the far past as a kid and in highschool for forced standard assignments) but I have been a self-learner of many things and I can learn fast depending on how much time I devote to it and what subject it is and how it is explained or presented, how long would it take, on average, to finally be able to really draw cartoons decently (decent quality and at decent speed)?

I made a sketch today and showed it to a few people. Some could hardly recognize things on it! I made a random drawing of a desk that had an eraser (with icon and text), a manual pencil sharpener (with icon), a pen that had many little chipped out circles at the part where you hold it, an old little tablet package that had one tablet and was a bit curved and had these diagonal lines on it making little squares and it had the plastic holders and stuff a bit screwed up. Even tried to pay attention to detail, tried to put in simple shadows, but my skills...... Well, I'll post it when I have a chance to scan it.

Thank you. Well, I was a beginner in 2004. If you take a look at my galleries on the site, you can see how the improvement progressed. I was just like you, I doodled when I was a kid and through high school too. Just learn from whoever you can. These art forums are a great place to start. There's tons of information here and on other forums too.

Your speed depends on the time you spend practicing. Ive gotten so much better in the past 2 months from this forum then all the years I sketched alone. Dont hesitate to post and take the critiques :)

welcome :D

Thank you very much. Unfortunately I haven't touched a pencil for many a moon past... well, actually just many days or something, heheh, as I was, and still am, occupied. It makes me wonder whether I must reclimb the ladder (at the beginning already!!!) with much effort. Then again I do not know if what I had was worth much to begin WITH.

I shall attempt to provide a scan of the desk drawing soon. Oh please no.... no.... I'm looking at it right now. It looks shabby.
