practice makes perfect so keep drawing. as an artist there is never a time in your life where you will be the "best you can be". there is always room for growth,even when you're 80 you'll still surprise yourself as you push the envelope of your skill. try drawing people from life,if you haven't already,i find that your skill as an artist grows exponentially when you begin to learn the nuance and subtlety of the human form. bring a small sketchbook to malls, parks,aerobics classes and the like and try to draw people in action...faces, expression, action poses,these will make you increase your mental "library" and thus you'll begin to expand your ability to draw various things. also keep in mind that as an artist, there will be "off" days where it seems as though the creativity just isn't coming and your muse is on vacation; then there will be days when it just seems to pour out of your head like you have a creative hemorrage of the brain. ride it when you can, and rest when you can. above all, LOVE what you do, practice it with a passion; and don't let anyone tell you that there's no money, or enjoyment/reward in being an artist (so many people told me this when i was growing up). i mean, look at me, i work as an animator in videogames and i'm rich beyond belief! okay,maybe not, but it's a living! ;-)
in any case, keep up the good work!
