How does drawing make you FEEL?

Just curious to know why YOU love to draw or paint so much.

What kind of FEELING does it give you that is so rewarding?

When i'm in the mood i love it. I find it relaxes me. Put my headphones in, stick some music on and just block everything else around me out :)
It can be soooo frustrating at times, but when you move beyond a difficult area and realize that you just improved as an artist, right then and there, it's worth it! I may have to try 20 different things to get a nose to look right, or a skin texture to look right, but all that matters is that ONE time it works. Even creating something cartoony or comic-book like can be so fulfilling. It doesn't have to be a huge, epic piece of work.

I love the feeling of just getting lost in my work... And it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I finish a drawing. Usually.

Sometimes it frustrates me to no end, but I get a huge feeling of accomplishment when I improve at it.

just an intense wave of hatred, more or less

Thing is, I don't love it. I hate it, all of it. I just need it.
