I think if you trace someone else’s art and credit the original artist, it’s not that bad either. (As long as you don’t claim it as your own art)
I used to trace others in the past and when asked if I drew it myself, I always said it’s not mine and heavily referenced. Kinda helped me improve with time.

If you don't care about a career, or social media, then what's the fastest/best way to learn to draw cute girls? I want to draw purely for fun, so I don't really care for the advanced shit and learning to shade realistically, etc. Maybe, even if it's inefficient, this will help spark my passion and eventually I can learn more professionally.

I'm thinking something like forms and dexterity (since that is the basis of everything), and then going straight into proportion, and gesture. After getting those down, maybe very basic anatomy but again nothing insane. I don't need to memorize the name of every muscle inside of someone. Lastly, learning to draw faces/facial features (and LOOMIS). Somewhere in between/throughout would be like studying from artists you like, copying their style and figuring out what you want to do for yourself. Is this a decent plan? Could always throw in some dynamic sketching somewhere in between so you can actually texture the clothes or something and make it look nice.

Buy five stacks of copier paper and draw cute girls.

That was my method for getting good.

You can also start digital but only if you have a really good device (cintiq, s7+, ipad). I would never have learned to properly draw with the shitty wobbly digitiser I have on my surface pro. It destroys any subtle hand to eye coordination. Luckily I started with paper and pencil.

2nd 1994 Perspective Drawing Series
3rd- How To Draw By Scott Robertson (CHAPTER 1-6 if you only want to draw human figure)
The book is a little bit dense, but if you did step 1-2, you will have no problem understanding the book, also the book come with some videos.
Use these Playlists as a reference if you have any questions about the techniques.

Now see how people that go for Art studies in the west do it so because they can't stand math as opposed to Japs who do it because they like it but are perfectly capable of succeeding in STEM shit.

As evidence by the fact that I don't actually do any art for myself, that I can't really bring myself to do "personal" or "passion projects", basically yes.

I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, but I almost never have something in my head that I need to get out. I am not a very naturally creative person at the best of times, so without any sort of design brief, I flounder. These days, basically any time I pick up my pen it's because I'm being paid to.

The problem is, I've also basically lost almost every job I've ever had for one reason or another, mostly because I'm shit, so as bad as I am at art I'm apparently even more useless in the real world. So I guess it's either do this, or just be homeless, which seems likely anyway.

I'm so sick of people taking that quote out of context or mangling it. "Great artists steal" means to go beyond what your inspirations can do.

Nearly every professional sketch I see goes absolutely ham with thin lines and and seems to find a shape and detail in them. I tend to use colossally thick lines and then carve the detail in with the eraser tool. I think this is the result of moving to almost exclusively digital drawing rather than relying / being used to the thin tip of a pencil on paper. I'm completely comfortable doing this, but my digital sketches tend to look quite different from other people's and I'm wondering if I might be hampering my progress like this somehow? Does anyone else do this or have come across a reason not to (obviously beyond having different sketching methods for paper and digital)? I suppose I end up erasing some of my workings in the process

I'm going to put a warning out to all of you guys that freelancing sucks dick when people are paying to be your friend instead of paying you to draw.
I don't imagine any of you to be exceptionally sweet and friendly, but its important to put up boundaries at all costs.
People pay you to listen to their problems, hit on you, try to get too close to you, be friends, call you at odd hours, open up about their transgenderism, their life story, their big boobs, it goes on and on. I'm dedicating the next two years to putting 5000 degrees of separation between me and the people paying for my work.
Can separating the art from the artist even be achievable these days?
At all costs, don't sell your personality or your life story in order to make it. DO NOT DO THIS. it is a WARNING.
