Dyslexia Affecting Drawing?

[This is more of a question but didn't fit]

I've been drawing since I could pick up a pencil and only recently I have gotten a bit serious about it.

I am trying to adopt a "style"...like Semi-realistic or cartoony. I have looked up countless anatomy, face structure, and hand tutorials but I still have trouble sketching out those things correctly. I even tried joining art communities (deviantART) to expand my capabilities...such as using strategies other artists use (ex. Mirror technique) yet I haven't improved much.

My gut tells me my dyslexia is greatly affecting this. Could this be the root of the problem and how can I fix it?

I was thinking about saving up for an art class. I have heard going under a sort of apprenticeship is a valuable experience and could help.


Thank you for taking your time to read this. I would greatly appreciate feedback and/or tips and tricks! =)

Thank you for the comment. I agree that practicing is one sure-fire way to improve so I will try my best!

One thing to consider is that most dyslexic people think in 3D not 2D. They think global and most times not in order. Drawing is something different to everone, I think in you case, you just need more time practsing and you should get there.
