These two sentences can be true at the same time:
- Many coders can't draw their way out of a wet paper bag.
- Many coders can draw SOTB/Lotus in-game graphics.
Most coders can't draw to save their lives but many can.
Even if the fraction of graphic-able coders is just 1/10th of the total that is still many kittens.
This said, like every other skill out there, if you train you will get better. You have a brain and neurons, you just need to make the effort needed to create the appropriate neural connections.
This is coder art btw:
Pretty good IMO.
