Few videos illustrate the benefits of practice and perseverance as well as this one.

Great video, and one I might challenge myself to do, it's been awhile since I have produced something creative like this...I'm too busy with life now to enjoy the things I use to :(

This is a really cool post. Some of these people are ridiculously talented. The very first one is obscene.

A lot of this is digitally painted or 3D, not "drawn", but cool none the less.

A few of these I don't buy however, like 2:36 and 4:31 for example. You don't go from that bad to that good in a year. You can practice and develop technique, but that only takes you so far.

holygod IDK.  I had a friend in high school that I actually taught to draw late junior into senior year.  His work was pretty bad, and I was only a 17\18 year old kid who knew little to begin with, but the drive was there.  When he got into college that next year he took an actual art class and was producing some amazing stuff in just one semester.  Taking an intro class and learning the techniques like depth, perspective and shading were all he needed to bring out the talent I saw.  

Unfortunately I have to disagree that digital works are "not" drawn, it's just a new\different medium, the techniques are still the same.  One that I wish was more available when I had the chance to learn it.  

But I get what you are saying, you can never replace something like charcoal on paper when moving to digital.  There is a tactile feel in both the process and the outcome that can't be reproduced.
