From exercise to empathy, healthy eating to healthy conversations, what we do takes practice. We enjoyed this article from the Huffington Post, proving that practice makes us better at what we do. Make sure to click the link to see the spectacular examples of photo-realistic drawings.
from the Huffington Post:
"For the first couple years you make stuff," public radio host Ira Glass stated once, "it's just not that good. It's trying to be, but it's not."
Glass' pep talk, directed at creatives but applicable to pretty much everyone, may sound familiar. "There is this gap" between your ambitions and reality, he declares, going on to explain how that disappointment is too, well, disappointing for some, who abandon the pursuit of whatever it was they were trying to achieve. "They quit," he said simply.
But eventually, those who practice will have a lot more to show for their efforts. "It's only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap," Glass said. Below we give you before-and-after examples of artists who tried hard to do precisely that in their own work, and it's clearly paid off.
