Do you guys just have it in you? If not, where/how to you develop the skill?
I guess the thing to say here is practice makes perfect. I've been inspired tons by a thread on ConcepArt.org where a grown man who'd never drawn a thing before in his life began drawing and drawing and drawing and now he's a professional painting portraits and scenes that'd fit right into the Renaissance itself.
If you're interested in art and would like to get into it, my first suggestion would be to get yourself a sketchbook, some drawing pencils, ranging in different values (from H to 9B is normally good), and to start drawing from life. Draw anything around you, draw your friends, your family, your dog, your potted plant, your Mike Portnoy action figure, anything! Google online for some drawing tutorials, they'll get you into the right habit of what you need to be doing. Most every drawing starts out with some sort of basic structure/form. When I draw human beings I always start off with general shapes that signify the form of what I'm drawing-- basic cubes, circles, anything to convey structure and volume. You refine from there.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, you just have to start somewhere. I've been drawing since I was a really young lad and I've always been interested in art. Not until middle school did I start getting serious about it, and now as a senior in High School I'm looking into becoming a professional artist, art teacher, and instructor for my career. The more you draw, the better you get, but like I said, you have to start somewhere. Start off basic, start by drawing simple things from life, and continue drawing things around you. You'll eventually get a feel for what you're drawing and start developing techniques. Going out and buying various art instruction books helps as well. Constructive Anatomy by George Bridgman did wonders for me.
I'm kind of ranting without any general direction right now, but if you (or anyone else) have any specific questions about starting out I'd be glad to answer them and help you out. This thread's here to help, of course!
@Silver Tears: thank you! I appreciate it.
