Touché!

Talent is inborn. Quality comes from effort and practice. Talent can make the difference between two people who have similar levels of experience and dedication, but usually it's the experience and dedication. :p

Yeah! Hard work not innate skill!

Saying someone has talent for something is like saying people are born knowing how to drive. It's insulting. The same with "I can never draw like that."

On the other hand, though, would you ever really enjoy being told, "Wow, you must work REALLY HARD on [something you do well]!"

The intent behind both comments is (hopefully), "I am impressed with what you've done," but the implication is either
"You must have begun with more, so you didn't have to try" or
"You're obviously not a prodigy, so you could only reach that stage with LOTS of effort."

I am impressed by your artwork. Whether it's talent or work, it's awesome and funny xD

@delunaeus: Cheers!
It's actually a shitload of work and practice. I can barely draw a straight line myself.

Familiar

Speaking as an artists and designer... sounds a little self-referential... and damn familiar, too.

In my experience it's typically talent AND hard work. But hard work with little talent will get you a LOT further than talent with little work.
