Ok, so, I can't draw. Like anything. I was wondering if there was any hope for me developing my talents at all? Should I take all manner of art and drawing classes in the hope of improving my artistic abilities? I would just be a writer and have an illustrator, but I have no money to pay someone. I don't have any friends who would be up to it for free, and I felt too presumptuous asking for help on the Help Wanted forum without being able to pay someone for their work. Mind you I am not asking for a graphic novel, simply a webcomic full of comedic goodness for all. Any advice?

Take classes and see where it takes you. If you improve and have fun, keep at it.

Why? You can always try. There are people who do stuff just for fun. But if you expect to get someone good, you really need to spend some dough.

I'm just looking for someone who can draw things more complex than stick figures. I'll try it out in the Help Wanted section, thanks!

Write prose. No artist required.

If you can't draw don't push yourself, that should come naturaly, and after you find some skills about, then start practicing to improve what you already have.

You can use your imagination and creativity to become a great writer.

Most of my art directors in advertisement, they can't do more than stick figures, but they have brillant ideas. Maybe you just need to be conscious about your real talents and start working from there.
BEST!

If you love or enjoy drawing, then draw! Take classes, practice, read books etc. If you don't really like to draw that much then don't, it can be very frustrating and drive you crazy! :laugh:

Hmm. I think that could be misinterpreted.

If you're not very good at drawing, but have the passion for it, just keep practicing. Drawing, like most things, is an aquired skill. Some people aquire it naturally, and some people have to work at it.

If you really don't like drawing, then don't do it, as it will most likely show in your work that you don't care much for it.
