My Bio
I am American of Nigerian descent. I've been drawing things as a kid. I draw things depending on what I see on TV or simply what comes to my mind. I have a unique imagination. I hope to become an artist someday.

Things to know about me:

I am not an animal person.

I am not into superhero shows or movies

I like all types of music genres of 70's-present.

I am autistic (whatever that basically means).

I love watching old TV shows from 1970's-2000's

I never learned how to whistle.

I don't like seeing or doing sports.

I hate sexist comments. (i. e. You can't do anything because you're a girl.)

This had been on my mind for a long time. Therefore by reading this title, you are sure have insight on this. When I went to a doctor at age 12, I was told I had autism. I didn't know what it was at the time. I searched for the definition and it was a social learning disability. Although my parents told me I had autism since birth, when I found out about it, I felt confused. At first, I thought it was a disease. Then again, anything with "dis-" is sure to be bad. Among the signs for autism are avoiding eye contact, speech problems, and organizing some things in a certain order. Sometimes when talking to someone, I tend to not look at that person. It may seem as if I was ignoring them, but it was not the case. Though I don't have this symptom, autism can have people not speak proper sentences or even proper words. (I could be wrong though). I often prefer organizing things in either alphabetical or numerical order. This helps anyone navigate better. Along the way, I came across other people, whether in real-life or online, who also have autism. This made me feel like I'm not the only one who has this trait. I could talk to and relate to them. Perhaps I could befriend them and keep in touch with them from time to time. The sad thing is, though, I also came across some negative comments on autism. Some say that those who have autism are idiots. This could make anyone with this trait upset. While the definition still confused me, calling autistic people idiots would even upset me as well. What is the point of insulting those with autism with looking it up? They wouldn't do so if they had it too. People can have negative viewpoints on autism. Then, I read that people with autism can prosper in life. They can succeed in academics, careers, and even relationships. This shows that despite having this disability, people can achieve anything through hard work. It would inspire anyone to be as successful as autistic people. In the end, I may not know if autism is good or bad, but I know what it is like to have it. What do you think is autism a blessing or a curse? I'm eager to hear your feedback.

Hello. I hope anyone can relate to this. Have you felt you forgot about any users' names even though you follow them? It's so frustrating to try and remember. I suppose that' what happens when you follow thousands of users here. One username I forgot was a 3D artist. I couldn't remember the name. One detail that ought to help me is among their characters was named Peggy, who is a short stack and has a bakery. Another username I forgot is a furry artist. I don't know if I follow them or not, but I remember the artist's logo is in a square with the word HACK. I don't remember any pictures they have though. I hope you can relate to this. If anyone recognize the users I've described, let me know. Thanks.

I thought about it for some time. I would to do more than just a pencil and paper. I would like to make something at the top of my head, but it's not possible for me. I've been through looking my art and I thought I wish I could expand my art skills more. I could try my hand at 3-D art. I've seen many 3-D artists on this site. I envy those artists out of admiration. I like how they made the people. Also, I've dreamt of creating characters in 3-D and the events on the pictures. These made me wish I want to do 3-D art too. I could try animal art. I've been fascinated with animal art for several years. I like the style the artists execute them in, whether it is drawing or painting animals. They seem enjoyable to see, let alone do. I would like to make animals look like true animals be it drawing or painting. I would like to try anatomy. I want to excellently make body parts for people. Throughout the years, I was never perfect at drawing body parts. I feared that even if I do make perfect body parts, no one would find them appealing. I wish I could make proper anatomy. I wish to make backgrounds. I've been awestruck by backgrounds in paintings. I like the atmosphere and execution. The problem for me is I don't know what to include for backgrounds. Would people like the pictures even if there was no background of if the background doesn't look perfect? I would like to make backgrounds for the perfect setting. I want to properly make unusual shapes. Growing up, I never drawing unusual shapes. For example, I didn't know how to draw continents of the world. I couldn't draw each state of America either. When I try to do so they looked nothing like what they should be. I would to perfect unusual shapes. That is all for journal. I would to know your input on the things I mentioned. I'm also eager to know your suggestions. Thanks.
