I struggle a lot with anatomy and proportions and things of that nature, so that's definitely one of my weaknesses. However, I do believe that my biggest artistic strength is knowledge of colors and color theory. I know a bit about primary colors complimentary colors and I absolutely apply that knowledge into my work. What are some of your strengths and weaknesses in art?

My strengths would be giving depth, shading and life to my drawings but my weakness planning my drawing out as i just go through the sketch adding detail as i go opposed to drawing the outline and gradually adding detail.

Strength: Sketch
Weakness: Coloring

Even though it's been a long time since I started with digital/traditional art and tried many techniques but still am not getting better. I still need to work on my coloring techniques yet I feel lazy to spend days on one drawing :P :D

I have a similar weakness to you: I'm not very good at consistently drawing proportions or anatomy well. Even if I draw the same character a few times within a few days of each other, he/she can look totally different among a few drawings. I'm working really hard to improve, though, so hopefully it goes away soon enough. :|

I can't think of too many strengths of mine, but I think I'm good at covering up with my anatomical errors with decent shading and knowledge of texture... I guess. XD

Strengths- I have a decent skill set. I have a pretty decent knowledge of art history & mythology, which gives me plenty to draw from (so to speak).

Weaknesses- Despite having a decent skill set, my confidence generally lacks. I'm a perfectionist, a procrastinator & for what ever reason- I'm distractable as hell (oh, look! Pretty!). And here I am...not drawing.

My anatomy is moer or less acceptable and I think I'm not too bad at poses, movements and shading.
My perspective on the other hand sucks. Hard. I'm positively terrified of cityscapes or buildings in general. Also, I'm not too creative when it comes to drawing clothing.

Google-fu for animu screen shots to trace.

No seriously, google-fu for porn to trace.

That last statement was serious.

I've been told I use space well, and have a good eye for color.

My strengths are that I have a lot of ideas and am not that bad at sketching.

My weakness are my laziness, my inability to complete projects (which coincides with my laziness), my poor knowledge of rendering, anatomy and perspective, and coloring.

So basically I'm better at coming up with stuff then I am at putting them down on paper.

My biggest strength is imagination. I'm almost never out of ideas of what to draw.
My biggest weakness is composition, in a sense that you need it in order to make a work that has impact.

Strengths: Making things look colorful and somewhat detailed.
Weaknesses: Anatomy (especially with drawing male characters; I'm more used to drawing females all the time), faces/expressions, drawing the basic head shape without it looking weird as fuck, shading, hands (they've always been a weakness, but I think I suck more at drawing them bare. I always try to make them look detailed by adding nails, but it ends up looking bad. The majority of my characters wear gloves because of it), and executing my ideas and finding the motivation to do so.

Broadly- I think that one of my strenghts is my imagination, I have hardly a blockade. But sadly my weakness is that I canīt draw. Is frustrating to have the image in mind and the result in the paper, canvas etc. is so far away from what is in your head.

I would say colour, shading and fabric are probably my strengths. I just love colours and making colour schemes.

Weaknesses: expressions, perspective, buildings.

I'm improving with anatomy. I wouldn't call it a weakness, because I'm still learning and I know how to get better. :D

My strengths I think are my use of colour, knowledge of anatomy and composition.

Weaknesses.... failure to dream big/lack of ambition. Putting things off then having to rush them. Kids.

No, drawing kids XD I didn't quite make that clear XD

I observe adults more, and so they're easier. I can draw children I just need to slow down and think more than with an adult.

But I apply knowledge and concepts and ideas into those abstract and surreal pieces, I don't apply pigment onto a surface and declare myself a master painter. I'm far from a master. I still have lots to learn. :3 I say that just 'cause some people don't think that abstract or surreal art takes thought or skill when that isn't necessarily true.

tbh I think people themselves rarely declare themselves master at anything. It's a phrase I most often see written by others about artists. "Master Animator" "Master Storyteller" etc. And if you asked the person they're talking about they'd go "I'm still learning" more often than not XD

Oh, ahahahaha. I'm still working on figure drawing and drawing people. I create a lot of abstract and surreal pieces myself.
