Subject title: Things we used to say about art (that were total bullshit).

I'll start it:

Interesting topic! :)

"I don't need to learn realism."

"The artist probably didn't put that much thought into it that people interpret." (Though of course some things are not that deep, most are planned out and every element of a piece has a purpose)

"If I don't draw 12 hours a day everyday I'll never get good."

The only thing I got out of that kind of thinking was anxiety, stress, and depression. Seriously don't worry about how much time you spend drawing, just draw.
