Talent is a myth.

Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.

Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.

@mooncube Drawing cartoons used to be my favorite thing to do...I need to get back into it

@aengel Absolutely, yes! You don't need to be a professional to create, you don't need anyone's approval to be an artist. If you enjoy doing it, do it - who knows maybe it's still your favourite thing, it would be a shame not to do it.
