This is great depiction of the evolution of art. You started with the evolution from about 1850 and on, would have loved you to go back even further.

That's disappointing if a lot of people really had that experience. I took an art course in college, and it was very helpful (and our model had a nice body, and she was actually attending art school on a different campus so she walked around during breaks to look at our work and give suggestions), I learned a lot and more importantly improved exponentially.

I hate how hard it is to develop a style. Mine right now looks like a two-year-old having a seizure

You've managed to capture my artist life perfectly. I hate when my friends go, "Why do they only have one eye?" Because anime eyes are hard to draw and I'm a perfectionist.

This is followed by a 3 phases: #1) Uncontrollable breathing #2) Impatiently waiting and looking at the screen for 10 minutes, hoping it will be just fine #3) Accepting your fate #4BONUS) You will think about this mistake for the rest of the week

While drawing, I will hold it in my hand, making gestures on my tablet. When I'm not drawing though, I'll put it in its stand.

Well, you can still say you have drawn a bunch of study lines :D You might have erased them and not having evidence to show, but you've done it anyway!

Doing CTRL + Z is probably the most common. So is CTRL + Y, but we all know we can't get back that perfect line, once it's erased.

Same here, but I tend to over-complicate, not over-simplify. Sadly.

Very true. I always imagined something from a RP (roleplay) and I've planned to draw it out but it comes out childish
