So if you think you suck at drawing, don't stop practicing because if you do, then you'll never improve.
    I disagree, my cousin would prove otherwise. As -=Broken^Halo=- mentioned, no she didn't "Pop out of the womb" able to perform, but as soon as she learned the basics in music theory there was not an instrument she couldn't pick up and play. Average time for her to learn to play a new instrument at competitive performance levels? 4 months. Most people? 1-4 years. I believe she picked up the drums in less then 2 months.

    Yes practice makes perfect, but with talent perfection comes sooner, and the exceptional with practice is inevitable. Most people may never attain that and a few never can.

    you can have the talent to learn faster but you're not born with the skills, always practice makes the difference-a person who has a talent to draw and doesnt practice will not reach the level of a person who practices for many years. people say; if you have a talent use it-cause it doesnt mean you are better, no it means you will learn it faster
    What's your problem, gazing all the time?!

    I think some of us might be born with a "natural talent" for drawing, but they have to work hard to be able to develop that talent. Of course, someone may have more raw talent, but if they don't care enough to develop it, they won't go too far.

    I also think that someone may be born without great talent, but if they have enough will-power, they can do a great many things.

    Gift

    I personally think that it can be a gift, but like anyhting else you have to learn it. I have an aunt that can draw so inheritance might even play a factor too. Anyway, I have an aptitude for learning, so I guess I can do many things, but the thing that I love doing the most is the thing I'm best at, drawing. It can be learned, but when you have the gift, it's just easier...

    Far be it for me to be anything special, when the only special thing I desire with me, is the special person I share my gifts with.

    Just to help clarify things a bit:

    A. People who seem to have had the talent since birth = prodigy
    Examples include Mozart and Claude Monet. They didn't have to read up on tutorials to do what they did best, but yes, they did practice in a continuous basis, otherwise their skills would have atrophied. If these people did not exist, the term wouldn't appear in our dictionaries. Ergo, such people do exist.

    B. People who strive(d) to develop the talent even though they were not born with it = very patient people

    Don't you agree? It takes a LOT of patience to practice and perfect a craft if you are not really born with it. Yes, you may achieve perfection, but in a tremendously gargantuan amount of time compared with someone who was born with the talent.

    So all I can say at this point is, good luck to all those who are aspiring to be great artists, yet who are not born with the talent. Take note that this is not meant to be a statement to discourage people, but just stating a fact. In fact, it can be even interpreted as a challenge.

    i agree with rodion somewhat. there are people that are naturally gifted and effortlessly do things the rest of us struggle just to be competent at. and then there are people who are masters at their crat by sheer will..and lots of practice. but i also think there are people in whom the capacity (to do great things/be great at something) exists. it's just that they've never actually pushed themselves to see how far they can go, how good they can get. to me, that's another form of genius. maybe i just have a warped sense of thought. meh...
