These are two of my sketches! (they're anime characters).I had somewhere pastel drawings (among others) with landscapes, animals and a sketchbook full of fiction anime-like characters but i can't find them.

I look at it the same as me practicing the Violin... I self taught, have developed bad habits but only plan on playing recreational. But I am not talented or gifted to just 'pick it up'

i would really like to have a more detailed explanation, if possible
I have two reasons for asking that.First, curiosity and second, it may be possible that you misunderstood my comment.I'll explain!
Next to the quoted part i wrote "it can get you to the top".Now let's say that a person named A likes basketball.After only some hours of training he had a bad performance on a friendly game.Then A said "i can't become good, i have no talent".
Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.That's the way i meant it.

This could certainly use some elaboration @Just.

Talent is having a creative imagination, to bring it to fruition takes work and skill which is learned.

P.S. How do you get a quote within a quote? I only ended up with Just's quote and not the quote included in Just's post.

the power of ctrl-x and ctrl+v ^^ theres lots of small things like that but eventually the admins dont care alot about such minor things. copy the quote into the quote by hand basically.

People are born with talent; the rest is patience and practise to develop skill.

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Talent is so much more than that. We've had this discussion on this site and I don't want to get into it again.
