    Q&A.. Why do you draw?

    So this will be alittle Q&A thread I hope with no flaming or bad language.

    The question is: "Why do you draw?"

    Do you draw to make a living? because you're bored? because you feel you suck at everything else?

    My answer is; I don't. I've temporarely given up because I've lost faith in everything. (temporarely) (And because I feel I suck at everything else )

    You're turn!

    I draw because it soothes. I draw because it makes the worlds in my head touchable. I draw because I'm arrogant enough to think I got something to tell, that might have an influence on someone one day.

    Because I can.

    Being so young and losing faith in your own abilities before you've even started to really fuck with what your mind and hands can do just seems such a waste of effort, even if it's only a temporary thing... Keep a sense of humor, sprout, and it'll make crawling through the mud a lot funnier...especially when it starts to pile up in your shorts/panties...

    I'm sure this isn't the complete reason but because stuff like that doesn't exist?

    Because I see things in my head and it's like an itch and the only way to scratch is to draw it.

    That said, I can encourage or discourage those pictures from popping into my head. I've certainly gone big chunks of my life without drawing much.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    To show what is really going on inside my head. My heart is pure and half my mind, that woud make 33.3% not so good(if you know what I mean). So I use pictures for now. When I am able to use words well, watch out. And "faith" is not real. It is a word used by religions to create some alternate universes where after this life we will all live eternally in fire or light, controling masses for a group conscience of "good" in humanity, and to give individuals something greater than solitude in their lives.

    Because a picture is worth a thousand words, because one image can say something you may be afraid of or just cant put across in any other way

    Because without something to do with my hands i get bored pretty fast

    Because my head is full of ideas which need a voice

    Because one day i want to fill a leatherbound book full of nightmares and leave it somewhere to mess with someones head

    Because it feels good, because i feel guilty if i dont and depressed if i stop

    because i love to learn and push myself

    because i dont want to spend my life living in the same boring town doing the same boring job forever

    Because im competetive

    and last, but no means least- for the lulz :3

    Because it's a constant challenge.

    I'm amused by the "no bad language" comment....and Ilaekae's response. I think when I start a thread, I'm going to demand no misspelled words.

    Because it feels very rewarding when I am able to portray worlds in my mind onto a medium. Of course, I can't do it accurately due to my skill level but I'm hoping one day I will.

    I actually find it helps me think when I’m trying to sort out a work related problem.


    It also stops me picking my nose.
