Hmm, a pencil?

I'm not great with drawing too, though I still try. You don't need tallent, you can learn everything (except things all humans can't) if you just go for it and train everyday. If its hard it may require years, but eventually you can do it.


Succes.

Don't try writing. For the sake of us all, don't try writing.

Images in your head? Perhaps a psychiatrist?

1. Take a chainsaw
2. Cut the tip of your skull (be sure you don't cut too far down, because that wouldn't be very advantageous)
3. Take the images out of your head
4. Put the remainings of the part you cut off back on your head. If you lost it, ask someone else for their skull as a replacement)
5. Take some nails, a hammer and fix it.
Done

I cant draw ether. But you need to find something you like and are good at. Maybe clay or 3D modeling programs?. I may be shot for saying this but i heard  if you can imagine it you can make it in secondlife. But i heard that takes practice too.

If you actually enjoy drawing then just practice if not i suggest trying one of the above or something different. If all else fails describeing things can work or even story writing.

I think you could do with a psychiatrist as well

I can't draw either. I can't draw a circle that isn't lopsided. Or a straight line....

That's what compasses and straight-edges are for.

I'm fairly sure no-one in the history of the Earth could possibly draw a perfect circle or line that is totally straight.

People who can't draw well can still make art, what do you think abstract is? ;)

Seriously, though, just practice and practice and practice and you'll get there. An when you do you'll wonder why you bothered and didn't get a job.

I think you posted on the wrong forum, dude.

Anyway, you can say all you want about not wanting to practice, but it's not like one day you're just going to be good without practicing. Unless you steal/copy, of course. That's a form of practice too, I guess?

I can draw if I really try (and I can see what I am drawing, and its not human or moving...), but personally I'm much better with drawing on the computer (photoshop cs3 is great)


As for a new medium I would suggest trying something on a computer, download blender if u want something 3d (its free) or try photoshop or corel painter.

If your looking for something off of the computer you could always try clay sculptures or painting.... Whatever you end up doing make sure u either check out a book, or look up some good tutorials/tips on creating art with whatever you choose. Its hard to get better if u don't know where to start or what technics to use...

Although it was designed for more architectural or engineering purposes, Sketchup 6 is a great, intuitive 3d modeling program.
