Thank you very much for this well constructed critique. :) I did continue the style, as a matter of fact, I have quit my job to focus on my freelance work as a professional doodle artist. Aside from that, I am now the head of a big doodle community in our country and have conducted lots of events and activities with them. Most of which were aimed at inspiring other people into trying out this kind of art. I do want to teach people how to do it but personally, I think it would be better if you gain your own style and draw exactly what you want to express in a manner of being relaxed and unrestrained from the regular rules of drawing. We have our own personalities therefore we are meant to come up with something unique. :) Cheers and thanks again!

The line that says "it would get me nowhere" was yelled to me so many times during my childhood, there were times I had thoughts of stopping and just forget about everything related to drawing but when you love to do something, that something will always find its way back. I realized drawing will be part of me til' death that's why I draw, it's what I love to do and I enjoy it more than anything.


I'm always so glad I inspire people,,
Make art by heart fellaz!
