He looks like scared or surprized here. But cool drawing, anyway!

Watching the thread and the drawings of you all, cursing my laziness and talentlessness. Damn I want to draw well, but I don't know where to learn it, and I can't bare to practice on my own, because my drawings make we want to burn them in magma.

~~~WARNING, LONG MOTIVATIONAL, OFFTOPIC RANT AHEAD!~~~
Despite your "talentlessness", you can become an good artist too. However, it requires a lot of hard work plus perseverance, and a lot of time to develop (Rome wasn't built in one day, right?). Most people quit when they face this fact, that's why there aren't many good artists around. Those people who stay in the fight pass through all hardships either because of their devotion/obsession, or willpower. That applies to other skills too, not just to art. The thing known as talent only applies to the period of starting out, talented artists may start learning easier than everyone, but they still have to to work hard and experience failures.

When an artist work hard despite all troubles and failures, his work improves over time. For example, take a look at the sketchbook thread of MindCandyMan from ConceptArt.org. Over the period of about 6-7 years he had managed to get from an "absolute rookie" to a damn good professional painter.
A more close to us (yet slightly less clear) example would be this. It's an abandoned Fault's page on Elfwood (yeah, that's Fault. He had reposted this and this on Bay 12 Forums in the DF fanart thread, here and here respectively). Compare his artwork from 2007 with the artwork he makes now. He did improve, didn't he?
The reasons why he had improved differently compared to above-mentioned MindCandyMan are: 1. The stuff on Elfwood was drawn when Fault was 13 years old, and 2. Unlike MindCandyMan, Fault is not aiming in the fine art territory. Anyway, despite all failures, he'd been working hard, and that's what made his artwork good.
I hope that it helps you (or anyone) somehow.

P.S. Nice Nolthag, strongrudder!
