This is amazing. He's spent his whole life drawing for enormous amounts of time every day. I noticed he uses a "pentel arts color brush pen," not that it matters.

If you do something 16 hours per day.. every day.. for 20+ years.. thriving to improve every day more and more.. you or anyone can become a master.. at almost anything.

I bet he is not half as good as I am at slouching at the sofa while eating potato chips....

What can I say... I'm envious, dude.

But I also don't have even 1/30th of his discipline and work ethic. Nowadays I draw with a pen almost every day of the week. But it's only at specific times when I can really get into it, most of the time I don't work for more than 2 hours.

I don't like making it into a study, I hate practice for practice's sake. Don't know how to change that. Don't want to, basically.

I still make progress, but not nearly as fast as I'd like. Stupid, stubborn.. take your pick. Probably both!

Hi Batman,
Try a different approach,come in at it from a totally different angle.
Make your drawing sessions more fun ! don't take it as a task but an interesting experience of exploring .
Learn to sketch ,you are NOT making a serious masterpiece you are playfully experimenting with a light heart.
Work FAST & do not perfect ,correct & polish these drawings - LOOSEN UP.
Half the the time you spend on drawing each day if you like ! but enjoy a single ,fast session.
Draw every different subject under the sun- everything!
You don't have to capture every aspect of an objects physical appearance just something about the truth of it to make a successful drawing.
Forget your eraser for now & sketch with a pen , make long, strong & bold confident lines - take the risk that they might turn out to be wrong.
While you might ultimately aspire to work in very thin pen lines use a thick bold line to start with , it'll force you to appreciate line.
Keep the faith ! - in a individual sketch take it far enough to be absolutely certain you have messed it up ! keep going on it with belief - you'll be surprised !
It is better to fill a page in an hour with sketches than painstakingly fill that page over many days.
That is how you open the doors to learning drawing.

Great advice, really. Let us hope it does not fall on deaf ears!
