Gaining inspiration for a presentation I have to do, I will talk about why I draw and what I draw and stuff - anyone has ideas for what reasons I could add as to why I draw? 

100%
51 deviants said So far I have "boredom", "lack of other talents" and "outlet of creativity (kinda)" as reasons, to give you an idea sob

'Ey, Spitfire? What always helps is BELIEVING THAT YOU DON'T HAVE THOSE THINGS!
It works for me, anyways

I don't know why you draw, but I draw because I like to create things. I like knowing that I made something, and it's even better if I get to share it, even with only one person. 

Same reason I'm learning programming languages

you could say that it's cathartic, which a lot of people find that it is, and it's a big old smart sounding word too I used it all the time in school

maybe just like the definition then? like how it helps to sort out thoughts and feelings and stuff. it's just a fancy word for venting, really

Your reasons sound mildly depressing :XD:
To me, I just draw because that's what I always did, it's one of my favourite hobbies. Getting appreciation or seeing your own improvement are also very nice things about it.
I also draw to say things I can't put into words - emotions, stories, worries, anything. Also, it's fun :D

I'll just put what I feel I would add. You may not agree tho.
-I feel that I don't get a feeling that I have to be perfect when I do it, it makes me free like alot more than school where i feel like I have to be good at everything.
-It makes it easier for me getting new friends online, cuz I love drawing random people and stuff.
-I love the freedom of all the ways I can draw, it's no real answer to how you should do it.
-It's an efective way of putting your emotions in, like a physical form.
-It may make you better at opening to new things and changes.
Thats all I can think of. :)

Mastering a new skill also must train your brain and help focus you in some way…right? :?

I draw because I love my characters and the characters from fandoms I'm into, and I want to see them. see their face, their expression. I draw to see them.

it's also really meditative for me.
and I'm thinking of making a job out of it.

and it's fun. I do it cuz it's fun.

I also need praise, and I'm good at drawing. with an artistic family, it's easy to get praise and recognition for my art. :shrug:
that's an after thought though.
I've never thought of why I draw before. I just do. it's what I do.

sorry for ranting. I hope I helped in some way...

Try imagining a character, and then once you get to their body parts and stuff, yell out the first colour that comes to mind (with the name, choose some random words that first pop as well, and for the gender, analyse your character and decide what suits them best. Given them a random personality helps for that last step, but only if you want). 

Once you have called out the colours of whatevers, draw it!

If you don't want to do that, you can always make a list before you piece the whole character together.

If what I suggested doesn't work AT ALL, search for inspiration or take requests.

I channel my emotions through my art (last week I drew a really angry picture to keep myself from punching someone)
I also get inspired by music.
Hopefully that helps :)

I draw to relieve stress, and it's quite calming, so you may be able to include that. c:

I can't get a job in art, I know I wouldn't be able to live off my art xD And sometimes turning something you like into a job is an effective way to kill off the fun you're having in it because suddenly you HAVE to do it.
It's not like that for everyone, I know, but for me it doesn't work out :P
