I've been doing it since my parents put pens and paper in front of me (I think I was 2) :)

I started seriously drawing about three years ago. But I always have drawn, so whatever. :) I'm concentrating on moving forward now, and that's all that matters!

Age 0. I need someone to encourage me handing a paint brush as a baby.

But seriously, can't change the past, only can move forward.

I started 2 years ago. Should have started at least 10 years ago. I would be getting work right now.

I've been drawing since I could pick up a pencil, but I wish I had started taking it seriously around the year I started highschool. So much free time back then :la: Now I can't put any time into it because of college

Everyone started drawing as a tolder I guess?

I started taking it seriously at 13, thoug I wished I could have had more drawing lessons in it.

I've been drawing since I was at least 3 or 4. Perhaps because of this, I am largely self-taught.

I most certainly wish I had started drawing humans at around 8 or 9, because 18-year-old me can currently draw a human at approximately the level 10-year-old me could draw a dragon. (Which is to say, very bad)
