I don't mind blog posts at all, personally.
>not Hitler by the way
Those Fuhrerious Dubs say otherwise
>I also don't know if my artwork is particularly good, because I've only been told that I'm good by non-artists, one art teacher, and a guy in a draw thread who said I was ahead of most anons.
It isn't "good-good" but you are starting from a solid foundation as a beginner and that is good. Your observational skills are strong enough that you should be able to follow a lot of educational material adequately which will give you a leg up from some others just starting out. "Having a Knack" for something instinctually and being able to cultivate this into something more is far easier said and dreamt about than done but you can do it if you believe you can, and have the willpower to put in the work.
>My question is: where do I start at my skill level? Do I go do the most basics or is it more efficient to start somewhere in the middle?
Don't assume you're too good for the basics, as those basic foundational skills will be what you use the most.
