Comments for Christopher Hart Books http://christopherhartbooks.com How to draw manga, figures, animals & cartoons Fri, 22 Aug 2014 02:10:24 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.3 Comment on What Influences Your Drawing Style? by cynthia54 http://christopherhartbooks.com/what-influences-your-drawing-style/#comment-60 Fri, 22 Aug 2014 02:10:24 +0000 http://chrishartbooks.com/?p=1999#comment-60 I drew pictures and wrote stories when I was growing up. I loved to draw animals and landscapes. Since I was in my twenties, I’ve had a love affair with fantasy art. And I’ve always loved dragons and dinosaurs, I think I drew so many dinosaurs when I was young. My parents didn’t believe artists could make a living, and insisted I take business training in high school, and no art. I got away from drawing for years, but now that my children are grown and I’m a grandma, I’ve started drawing again and teaching myself to draw and paint. Your books and tutorials are very helpful and encouraging.

Comment on How Important is It to Have Talent? by cynthia54 http://christopherhartbooks.com/how-important-is-it-to-have-talent/#comment-59 Fri, 22 Aug 2014 02:04:37 +0000 http://christopherhartbooks.com/?p=2380#comment-59 sometimes I get discouraged. I seem to want to draw detail first, it’s hard for me to simplify. I discovered your tutorials tonight on artistsnetworktv.com, and I find them really useful. I’ve also purchased several of your books and intend to focus on them to help me improve. My biggest problem is that when I sit down to draw, I freeze. It’s hard for me to put together a still life, I always think it has to be perfect. When I try to draw fantasy art, I feel like my imagination has vanished. Any suggestions?

If you have the motivation to draw, then you are more likely to succeed. However, it is quite possible for people to be more artistically inclined than others- I’m trying not to say ‘Born with it’, but I guess that’s what it is- for an example, in the second grade I was good at drawing compared to my age group- other 8-year-olds weren’t as good as me. But I wasn’t at all ‘Good’. To be “good” you have to WORK for it, and sometimes it’s hard. But that work pays off. When people ask me how I got to where I am now, I simply tell them “practice.” Yes, some people have a little head start. But that headstart means nothing if you don’t practice- you could easily catch up to my headstart if you just practiced often. :3

Every time I watch a good movie, I always think, “What if my stories became movies?” That would be one of my big dreams come true. 🙂

Comment on What Type of Cartoonist Are You? by Andriana http://christopherhartbooks.com/what-type-of-cartoonist-are-you/#comment-26 Sat, 05 Apr 2014 14:02:01 +0000 http://chrishartbooks.com/?p=1996#comment-26 It’s true! When I first started free-hand drawing, I drew Turtwig (a Pokemon). I completely shocked myself because I didn’t know that I could draw so well! Later on in the years, I drew my original characters you saw in my DeviantArt gallery.
