I draw a ton, but I do not post or even share everything I draw. Depending on what it is... I draw for my self often and sometimes for other people.
Things like studies,sketches from my sketchbook. I often don't share cause... A sketchbook is like a workbook. It's a place to make mistakes,have fun and figure things out. Unless people are interested in seeing my WIPs and sketches I rarely show them.. If I am working on something that I feel needs to be worked on I'll ask for a crit or someone to red line it for me.
I don't think I have to share it unless I really want to... Gotta draw a lot of bad drawings to even be able to get good at it. I probably filled up like...ten sketchbooks and i am still not even close where I wanna be. Gotta draw a ton of drawings and gotta draw everyday... ;u; Yep.
usually depends on if i remember to share it. Of course if its iffy in any way shape or form to me and it makes me want to burn it I don't share it.
I see a bunch of people commenting that they aren't very confident in their drawings. Well, I found that when I started sharing the stuff I drew my self-esteem (art wise) boosted, so i guess give it a try.
I always show the people around me what I'm working on as I do it, and if I can't get something to go right I bounce ideas off of my friends and in the end it helps me get my project where I want it to be. I was trying to figure out how to start one of my stories and really struggling. My brain was in the middle of the story and I wasn't sure how I wanted to start sharing the information needed to understand my world. I wrote something I wasn't very happy with and shared it with a friend in my frustration. He told me the things he liked about it and the things he was confused on or wished there was more explanation towards. I instantly wanted to explain why I chose certain things and rather than explain it to him directly, I took that desire and rewrote the beginning and had something I loved. If I hadn't had him questioning and trying to understand my idea, I would never have figured out how to explain it to my audience properly. I refuse to explain my ideas outside of text now. If they don't understand what I'm conveying, I need to go back and fix it so they do.
I usually don't show people my art unless they ask ^^ I don't have a anything against showing my art at all, but being at an art school where we have to draw all the time it's hard to hide your work from others in the first place x) I normally only upload things to deviantart which I like and what I think other people like (usually completely finished work) but I have been thinking of uploading some of my things from my sketchbook as well since I love at lot of the things in there ^^
I often do art for my friends and for myself, but more often then not I tend to keep my work to myself vuv If somebody happens to pick up any one of my sketchbooks, I won't keep them from looking at what is inside, but I will not voluntarily show them things usually.
I show my work to very, very few people that I know personally; I don't think any one person has read all my poems. Yet I upload on this site. Maybe this doesn't feel like "real life" to me (yet?). Maybe I haven't really identified myself by what I write; it tends to start like a song I can't get out of my head, except by writing down. Maybe poetry is different to visual art. Or maybe I just haven't done enough of it.
It depends on what I've drawn - simple little sketches I don't bother sharing unless it's good, then I'll share it on my Facebook art page along with better stuff, or something I think my friends will find funny then it's on my personal facebook page. I used to share pretty much all of it here on DA, but now that I'm improving I'm trying to keep DA for good stuff (as bit of an informal portfolio).
I upload my art but don't show where I upload them to my friends or anyone I know in real life... It's nice to get likes and comments from people but I'd be dead if anyone (irl) found my Instagram, Tumblr, etc. TL;DR I live in fear of people finding me online haha
I'm not really an artist, not the one that draws at least. I write fanfiction, if you could consider it a form of some art (probably not). But I do share it with friends and others, but not on this site.
If I draw a finished piece and it turns out well, I'll usually share it on facebook or instagram. A lot of the time I will take progress shots on snapchat and share it with my friends if I think they would be interested in seeing it (based on the subject I'm drawing). I show my immediate family almost everything I draw.
On the Internet I do ^^ But in real life.. I NEVER really show my artwork to anyone unless it's school related. If I'm speaking to someone on dA and mention a sketch/doodle I did, I post it on my scraps for them to see and generally for anyone else who is interested. I prefer uploading finished pictures though.
I put most of my drawings on DeviantArt, because I draw as a hobby. Might as well let others see what I've made. Of course, I don't have a lot in my "art" section because most if not all of it is not actual art, more like scraps...
If I'm very happy with the outcome of a work, I rethink about putting it on the internet, because of theft and other stuff. Therefor, my best work is most of the time not online, just in case. I'm working on my own website though, who gives you some protection, with copyrights, which sites like DA, tumblr, facebook and other stuff does not have.
I usually do not share my works with my freinds because I'm never happy with them, and most of my friends don;t draw at all, so I can not seek help with my outcomes, so I don't bother them with wailing on my poor skills.
I show my friends pretty much anything I draw (which is sadly just character designs I never draw again 99% of the time). If I am personally really unhappy with how something turns out I don't bother sharing it, but sometimes a friend can point out something that really helps turn it around.
I will usually post my finished stuff on dA then share it to my facebook and tumblr to show to my friends easier... And I'll draw things for jokes with friends which I only end up emailing to them. I like to share my stuff enough though no one ends up talking about it, but when I see my friends later and art comes up they get all 'omg it's to great' and I get confused .-.
