Because I want to get better at drawing!! :3 I've always admired art and I decided to actually draw! (I mostly doodle now-days and they're so small they're not exactly worth publishing..... but it's still practice. :3)
i want to show people the ideas in my head to let them see what i see there , and i really lik to draw and want to become good someday.... maybe make some money on the way ?

I don't know exactly why I draw :noes: I think I do this because, by this way, I can move away from the world that surrounds me. A world full of problems... More than anything corrupt ._. All the characters I did, have their own story. My character Cloudy was created in my first year of high school. They were dark times for me... ;n; Only drawing could encorage me .w.

I do it just for the fun of seeing what I can do with it.

i Love to draw and have amazing drawings in my head but unfortunately dont have the skills needed to bring them to life
I'm not very good at it, but I enjoy doodling and drawing. It's fun for me. And frustrating but mostly fun.
It used to be really fun for me to just draw for hours and hours back in middle school. Then it became harder and harder to find tome to do it once I got into college. I only doddle at work these days. :T

Drawing is like a hobby for me. I can draw for the most random reasons. If I am in the mood to draw, I can continue for hours and hours without moving. However, if I am not in the mood, no matter how I am forced to do it, nothing really comes out, it's like my brain is stuck there. Well, I love drawing out what I am imagining, dreaming or thinking of. I also love showing off my artwork, though sometimes I think I didn't really do a good job. Sometimes, I am also forced into drawing for people, that's the time when I am lazy and nothing comes out. Ok, I just said a lot of random stuff.
