Drawing is a cumulative process.

Drawing is a cumulative process. You learn, you apply, you adapt, you experiment -- in the long run you learn from trial and error and from experience.

There is no ONE good drawing style and the path is always crooked through the realm of shading, of edges, or light logic, and composition.

I support students' paths through knowledge and skills (tools and techniques) rather than demand a theoretically "good" drawing and consistency.

If you are consistent you are not learning - if you are not learning, you are not valuable to the Knowledge Economy.
