Default Ways to improve on artwork?

I haven't done much drawing in a good three years. What are some ways to start again and become good at it?

Draw. That's literally all you can do to get better. Also, don't become arrogant about your work because there's always gonna be someone better.

Practice, practice and practice.

Work on simple sketches. Have a variety of things to work on. Go back and redo old works.

I have the same problem! I haven't drawn in like a year and I'm taking Art 3 next year which is really hard. Practice everyday,start with small projects and don't worry about everything looking perfect,watch many YouTube tutorials.

Love making friends,love talking about anything! Send me a message if you need help/advice or just want to talk!

Like the others said, draw as often as you can. Also, be open to critique and ask people to check out your art work. If you can, ask an art teacher at your school to look at it and see what he/she thinks.

Always here to help. Don't hesitate to PM me.

Like people have said, practice makes perfect, but to get a little more specific:
It's good to set some sort of numeric goal, like at least one drawing a day!
It's always good to get out of your comfort zone, try a different style, or a medium you've never used.
Keep track of you drawings, like use a sketch book or something. It helps a lot to be able to look between old and new drawings and see your progress!

I am gay, but curious. I like Drawing, Reading, Cartoons, Anime, and a bunch of other things. Not particularly in that order...

I fancy myself a bit of an graphic designer.
