Do you have specific artistic skills and techniques that you would like to learn?

Do you plan to take a class, search online or just trial and error?

I would like to learn how to make photo realistic drawings in inkscape with easy to follow online tutorials.

I would also like to learn how to paint in a more looser style by practicing.

I want to take a class online in oil painting. (I was going to do that this fall but I spent too much money on my hobby for now, I have to slow down a bit).

I want to improve to the point that I feel comfortable displaying one of my pieces at my bank (they do that for local artists).....still have a long way to go.

I need to add one more thing to my list.

I want to learn to take STUNNING wide angle shots. (I have been watching a TON of YouTube videos on it.)

not fail as often I feel like it's like maybe 40 percent of the time that I do fail on something that I'm working on

being able to draw someone without a refrence picture I can do it to some extent but not more than very standard poses and expressions but it''s something I'm getting better at

make linework faster I usually spend up to 4 5 hours working on linework and it's not that complex looking either I feel like it's a bore and I just want to work on the colouring process after a while

get over my artist block thing that I am having I just don't feel inspired at all recantly

develop as a unique style as I can
I rather have a very unique and intresting style than be able to paint extremely realistic :p

Do you mean being able to draw someone from life or from memory? I've been practicing drawing birds from memory, not that easy, you think you know what something looks like but when you attempt to draw it you realize just how little you know. But it's a fantastic visual exercise.

from memory I mainly draw people so I want to get better at drawing faces without having to look at a pictures
I can do the basic looking foward and to the side but not so much with strong facial features and diffrent angles of the face :p

I want to learn to use oil pastels better
I want to learn to consistently draw faces better. I always have problems with the proportions correctly reflecting the subjects proportions.

First, to draw better.

Second, plein air in either watercolor or acrylics. (Maybe even pastel)

Third, anything I can learn and accomplish!
