Hiya any and everyone! Wall of text ahead! Jump over it to the bolded question if you would like
I’ve had the realization recently: I can confidently call myself an artist. That may sound kind of silly—I mean, what am I doing on this site anyway? But no, I used to think that I was just some kid drawing fanart and that I wasn’t anywhere skilled enough to be an actual “artist”. I could argue that I’ve gotten a lot better and more confident in my abilities leading up to this point and this realization. That wouldn’t be the reason though, because I could still go the comparison route and focus on all that I can’t do in order to justify not being a real artist. I’m no art major, I’m not currently taking classes or doing anything professional with art. But, I can still pick up a pencil and a paper and draw! And even if I’m not good at drawing certain things, I can still draw whatever I want! I can use my hands to create whatever image I would like! I am an artist because I can and choose to create. I don’t have to be good, I don’t have to be professional, I don’t have to always be drawing. None of those things disqualify me from being an artist
Anyway, so I was thinking about this due to all of the sketching I do while at school, which inevitably leads to people asking why you art so much(especially when it’s in all your engineering and math classes lol). I had no real explanation for it other than I love it haha.
Now! For those who read through that!! I have 1.6 sketchbooks of drawings… I want to share them ALL but it’s so much and I no longer have a scanner(I can filter them so they look okay, it just takes time).. So you tell me: What art would you like to see?
Some things I have for sure:
*winged people/bird people
*some character-unspecific romantic fluff
*dragons and dinosaurs and misc. monsters
*pokemon!! Lol no way I draw that?
*cartoon me and sister and cats. And cats.
*humans??? May include characters, but also just rando ppl. Oh also bookppl
*personal garbo I’m sure
*original ideas/concepts for things
*Hamilton(like, the musical yo)
*superheros+supersidekicks, including some I made up
*Phineas and Ferb(it’s probably not much!! I mean same to the rest of these but still I know ppl watch me for PnF(still?) so don get hype)
And if you know me/my art well enough to guess what I might draw, suggest that too haha. If you say something I haven’t drawn, I may just perhaps be inspired to draw it later
Also, another question! How are you doing today? or this week? or this month? Whenever! Just how are you? ^u^ are you here months or years after I posted this? As long as I'm not dead feel free to share regardless haha
Probably wont update my journal for another 50 ages, so take care everyone!
