    So why do you do it?

    Why do you draw? What's your goal in your artistic adventures? Where are you trying to go?

    I'm really curious as to people's motivations and goals.
    The advantage of being a beginner is having a much greater amount of teachers.
    Sketchbook?

    My mind is filled with all sorts of perverted idea, and it's my twisted enjoyment to put them on paper in order to defile other people's minds as well.

    I draw because I would rather be worthless sack of shit than be a slave to society...if that makes any sense. It seems that I am accomplishing my goals as I am becoming more worthless by the day... Hoorray
    That is until I find a job working for videogames...then I will be an appreciative slave and love my labors.

    I have so many ideas that need to be expressed and a world I want to create for others to see, that locking it all up would be a sin. The ability to create is by far the most joyful and self-fulfilling accomplishment. Showing others a new world either through movies, games, art, etc; has a huge influence on society.
    I like knowing that my ideas could impact, enlighten, or change another’s thoughts.
    Starting with art is just a stepping-stone for me.

    I do it so that perhaps one day, someone will take the lead of one of my characters and go on a killing spree and blame it on my character and then, I will knoe: yes magic man, you have touched the world.

    I draw because it is an outlet for my imagination. My writing does a good job, but the story I tell is nothing compared to the images I see. If I can achieve an ability where I can accurately represent the visuals in my mind, I will be content with my ability.

    I did a lot of soul searching a few years back, and aside from finding a wife and having kids, this is my purpose in life.

    So why do you do it?

    Revenge.

    Plus, I'm very obcessive. I can't stop thinking about doing this....for decades I've been thinking about this.

    Some people are just hard wired for this stuff.

    When you grow up around people that know nothing about art or the art industry and they tell you it's not worth it......you think about revenge!

    I can't stop doing this.

    To free the demons if I dont draw they will take control and oh the horror of the cubicle. I draw because I cant stop no matter what I have wanted to do career wise, art is what I have wanted to do.
    Faust you can do both at the same time you have two hands.
