Dem Questions

3 min read
I don't usually post journals but sure why not. Thanks for tagging me ZombieErnie .

First, the fine print:
1) please re-post the rules and questions!
2) answer at least 5 of the questions!
3) tag as many people as you know, there is no limit! (just tag someone QwQ)

Questions for the artist:
1) why do you draw/paint?
2) what do you draw/paint, and why?
3) how long have you been creating art, and what sparked your passion?
4) what forms of art block do you usually get?
5) what causes your art block? how do you try to break the block?
6) what/how do you wish you could draw/paint, other than what you draw/paint now?
7) who are the artists that inspire you, and why?
8) do you like drawing for others, or just yourself? or both?
9) do you like the artistic style that you have created? why or why not?
10) small challenge! post a "then and now" picture! an artwork that you created in the beginning of your artistic journey compared to how you draw now!

Good? Good. Let's rock.

1) I can't imagine not doing it. It's just part of who I am, but I imagine every artist knows that feeling.
2) Mostly character art. It's the stuff I grew up inspired by and now the stuff I'm most comfortable with, but lately I've been trying to break out of my bubble.
3) All my life. I started off copying my older brother but then he moved on from it and I didn't.
4) I don't get a ton of art block anymore. I've worked through it enough that it's now a much smaller issue. Even still when life forces me to go too long without drawing I really have to shake the rust off before I feel comfortable creating again.
5) Kinda answered this in question 4. :)
6) I wish I could do ALL OF THE THINGS! But I've learned to be excited about my own art and the natural directions it takes me. I spent too long trying to change my art too be like others.
7) Too many to name. If I'm following them or I've favorited any of their art then they inspire me.
8) Both. I love doing commissions, especially ones where the client leaves me a lot of freedom to really do my thing and wow them.
9) I do! It's still evolving. I'm excited about where I've come and excited about where I'm going!
10) I'll try to remember to post those later!
