    When you first started drawing, what was the picture you most wanted to draw well?

    I hope to be good one day to draw the Balrog from the Lord of the Rings movie. The image would be when the whip end flares after the creature whirls and snaps it. Gandalf would be facing him on the bridge.

    It's a nerdy thing, but I would love to be able to capture the intensity of that moment.

    I've always had a lot of ideas. I just wanted to be able to record them.

    and all of the fan art in Sega Visions magazine. Wildlife art was a big interest as well, though it's not half as challenging (in other words, fun) as concept art.

    Well, this wasn't when I started to draw, like most here I just wanted to be able to draw everything and my own ideas so this was more of a early mid-draw crisis, but...
    Pyramidhead (not the movie version). Oh the tween torment and nights when I cried myself to sleep because I couldn't draw his helmet in the right perspective, or in the right anything.

    Edit: I removed my image because in retrospect it felt like an attention grab. I'll do a proper master study.. One day, baby...

    Dave Gallagher painted this. Thanks Vermis.

    I can't believe you reminded me of this!!! Moosh from LOZ: Oracle of Ages. Very random. It was in the booklet that came with the GameBoy, I remember struggling for hours with colored pencil.

    When you first started drawing, what was the picture you most wanted to draw well?

    I was tiny...I wanted to draw a girl in a dress. XD After that, I wanted to draw all kinds of things, but I didn't draw fanart stuff till I was 21. I missed so many YEARS! Oh well. :3

    Ditto.

    If I told you just how many ideas I have, I wouldn't leave the keyboard for like a week. When you first started drawing, what was the picture you most wanted to draw well?
