My biggest hurdle of getting good is that I simply don't draw enough. Any tips for helping develop a habit or just forcing myself to draw more?

I've been doing digital art for a long time now. I'm not very good but I want to be. I've already graduated college but I'm thinking about attending an online art school.
I see a lot of people going into art school already knowing how to draw human figures, animals, landscapes etc.

I can't. I mean I can, but I kinda futz around until I get it right, I can't just sit down and whip out a human figure.

My question is, at my current skill level, should I attend art school? Can anyone at any skill level attend art school? Or is it only for those who already have skills?

I'll post my work to give you an idea of my skill level.

(I've been using Paint.Net exclusively up until this point. I just bought Photoshop a couple weeks ago, and made a thing, I'll post it.)

Well that's the thing. I don't have any really.
This is what I can do. It's my range at the moment. I need to learn those skills you just listed, which is why I'm worried about being good enough for school.
>>
>>4167202
You're new here, right? Don't think about it. Just enjoy drawing/painting, but keep in mind that you still need to improve. Otherwise, Photoshop is a waste of money. It's all about the right mindset.

>>4167202
He means that if you grind your fundies too much and do nothing else, your art can become soulless and without style. That being said, you could still benefit from practicing fundamentals...you gotta find a balance. Loomis was an art teacher who wrote some books teaching the fundamentals of drawing.

Also, on this board it's considered arrogant to make a thread dedicated to your own art (unless you're an absolute master). In the future, post in preexisting threads like the beginner thread or the draw thread.
>>
>>4167223
Ok thanks for the context.

And oops sorry, I didn't realize about the self posting shit.
Will keep that in mind.

I've looked at his work a lot and love it but I wouldn't say I've "studied" it. Had a copy of GITS since I was very young, it's probably ingrained in my mind by now.

I need to stop being afraid to fail and take risk and accept that stuff is going to come out shit as its part of the process.

I hate this feeling so much and i want to overcome it...

using knock-off lenovo surface pro 4
the pen is nowhere near as good as the pecil (which is nowhere near as good as the wacom pen)
however you get much better shortcut/peripheral and software options and ios is monstrously garbage in comparison to win10 unless you use it for the absolute bare minimum

if you have an older win10 tablet and your using photoshop: disable GPU option in it (set to basic)
it will get rid of the AA and various other features, but it'll work like charm
this is why i see most people complaining about penlag
