10 Before And After Drawings Prove That Practice Makes Perfect

Published 4 years ago

They say you need 10,000 hours to master a skill. The tiny problem is that you’re really bad most of the time. So here’s to those aspiring artists who burst through the crucible and came out better. Instead of abandoning their pencils like one would abandon a guitar, 3D modeling software or a NaNoWriMo draft, they persevered. And we all benefited from that (but not as much as they did).

Here’s a collection of works showing the progress of various artists from around the web. You can definitely see them improving. How about you? Did you recently take up a hard hobby or an art? How is it going? Do you drop it all in frustration, then spend the night tossing and turning in bed over how you are wasting your potential?

Happens to me, too.
