The more you think about the time it'll take you to reach that level, the more you'll halt yourself. Just practice, and practice lots, it takes years.
I'll do it in a week!
Personally, I think it's just a matter of a) planning out what you're drawing and b) taking the time to finish it. I think Cype and some other members can definitely do some of the stuff here but they just have to put in the time to finish it properly. =_=;
On another note, if you get discouraged by looking at these, then you should just focus on bettering yourself on one thing until you master it. For myself, I wasn't the best at CGing but I worked on coloring cel-style and I can definitely say that I've become proficient in that style. I'll be working on painterly style next. C:
Anyways, on to the next Inspiration of the Day!
