Hi Ame! i have a question: why do you draw? what drives you to do it? (ok thats 2 questions) I feel like the mass majority of tumblr is pretty obvious because most of them want to work in the field, or are active in a lot of fandoms. But you don't seem to be particularly passionate about anime/manga/gaming and you're obviously not aiming to go pro. Soooo what's the major drive behind this hobby?
Hi Lawn~ like I already said on Twitter, you ask the most difficult questions xD but I enjoy it! No worries. But I had to think a bit about this one.
I always answered the first one with: because it’s fun; it de-stresses me; it helps me express myself and I really love it. The answers sound pretty weak, but I think over the years it just became a part of me that I don’t want to let go.
While it is true I don’t ever aim to be pro, I’ve always wanted to do freelance/indie work on the side eventually. Though I’m not sure this will ever come true, but we’ll see. I’m too busy with school right now to do anything about it. It may seem odd that would want to progress in drawing when all the answers I’ve given so far are pretty weak LOL. I think part of my drive also comes for my love for drawings, illustrations and animations. I really admire good art, and artists who are able to express their thoughts in their works. It just makes me really happy and I just get this really incredible feeling to see effort and feelings put into artworks. When I see that, I just really want to get better and be able to do it too!
Everything I said is pretty cheesy but it’s pretty much how I feel about it. I JUST. LOVE. DRAWING. That’s all the reason I need.. ahah I hope it satisfies you even just a bit <3
