I began to drawing because I loved having the idea making my own anime (I'm a big anime lover) and I began to teach myself to try to draw anime. But mine is different but I'm still happy about my drawings!
i used to write stories when i was a kid and they'd always be better with drawings to go along with them. of course i didnt draw well but at least i got stuff down on paper!!! i stopped drawing for a while after i was like 6 because i started school but i got back into it when i was about 10 or so and the rest is history!
When I was still in elementary, I had a classmate who likes to draw. I was ABSOLUTELY fascinated by their drawings so I started copying them just for the heck of it. Slowly but surely, I fell in love in art and now here I am
My mother was attending a fine arts university when I was really young, and I of course wanted to be like her. She would sit me on my highchair, give me some art supplies and just let me draw. I mostly did crappy watercolor doodles and gave it to her. She would tape them to her bedroom wall. That's what really sparked my interest in the first place. My relationship with my mother isn't that good anymore but I'm still thankful she was that supportive back then.
Cuz as a kid I learned by watching others. My sister was always drawing. I watched her and wanted to draw too... now I draw for therapy. If I don't have a creative outlet I'll become a psychotic serial killer.
praise not giving your kids any toys! praise kids not having video games! praise not having any modern child friendly books at home! praise that the cartoons on the kiddie channel on the telly don't run 24/7! praise the neighborhood bullies that wouldn't let me play outside! praise killing trees and all the useless scraps of paper laying about! and finally: praise little sisters who do nothing but cry all day
I started drawing and making ocs when I was about 6 as a way to cope (In a way) with my trauma I got from being autistic in a school with shit staff. I'd draw Eevee's and other Pokemon cuz Pokemon was my escape from hell. Then I moved away to the middle of nowhere and I started drawing in MS Paint. I took inspiration from BaniTheKitty for drawing and BenTheLooney for my wish to entertain and inspire people. So I started drawing what I want. I joined DA when I was 10 but got my accounts banned (for obvious reasons) and when I turned 13, I made an account on here. In the meantime, I was a member of an Eevee fan community on the game LittleBigPlanet(2), then I left I and became an active member of Miiverse, the only place I could draw Pikmin and not stick out like a sore thumb.
Moral of this comment: follow your dreams or something and something might happen or something.
i don't know anymore , it all stated when i was very young (i can't remember when it started but it started somewhere) when i picked a pencil and drew stuff since then i have been drawing things i like and i can express myself in various ways i love getting critiques (even though i rarely get one i hope i do) because i like to hear what i should improve in the future it always encouraged me to make it better and keep practicing
I drew a lot of pics when I was a kid, but then I stopped. I only started again a few years ago when I saw my friends bring her drawings to school. Sometimes she would give her drawings to us, but at one point, I decided that I wanted to make my own art. I was incredibly crappy. No, like, I think my friends were lying when they complemented my drawings. It was that bad TuT. I never thought to take art seriously until recently though, cause I was tired of having no drive, no ambition. Nothing to feel proud of.
I started drawing because I enjoyed the freedom it gave me. I could be anyone, anything. Like I could create these fantastic stories with my own heroes and all. I think that it helped me escape from my own life. Today it helps me deal with stress from work and all that stuff.
I wanted to show how much i hate the artist/furry community but not by using pathetic hate language on forums and such but using the same "weaponry". I sucked at drawing so i studied to the point the anger was no longer there and I am where I am right now. I regret nothing
It was fun! It was also really nice to feel like I was accomplishing something. My friends and family were always excited about and supportive of my art. I was motivated and inspired so much I just never stopped doing it. I'm glad I didn't.
