I noticed that lately I'm drawing some decent stuff, but after I'm done and I learn everything that I can from the picture, I just rub it away. It doesn't matter how good or bad the picture is, everything is gone. (I think writers call it 'killing your babies') So it finally occurred to me, why am I doing this? I remember my lecturer once telling me that all art must have an audience, but lately nobody sees whatever I draw.(Except a few scientific drawings of insects and other slimy creatures)I used to do it for a while to get praised or at least try to fish for some appreciation, but now I feel like that's useless (and unhealthy). After some thinking, I believe I found an answer: I draw because it makes me feel better. I just enjoy moving my hand around and seeing illusions of objects on paper. It helps me calm down. Okay... in short it's because i SYOK SENDIRI! There... I admitted it...So why do you draw?

When I draw, it is naturally because I want it to happen. I don't draw when I don't feel like it.So that explains why I do. Because I want it. :3

I draw because i am bored and to express myself (even if it's not what i think it is.. ). But drawing it's like part of my life.. i just can't stop when i feel sad or happy.

I draw because I have a couple of stories in my head.I want to flesh them out, create their world, visualize the concepts I've created for that world and hopefully, eventually letting people read them and enjoy them.I want to start the story. But I've still yet to find the time and a comfortable place to start it.So, til then, I polish my drawing skills now and then.It also helps my D&D group to visualize monsters, situations and terrains I've set up for them.You can say I'm driven to it, as it's the most efficient method to convey a "message".

I draw to let people see who (or maybe what) I am~How my ideas make sense and what kind of perspective did I see this world with~I draw to remind myself of who I am- who I was~Lastly, I draw to kill my time XD

back then, i took it seriously in art....in all my life I just draw just to get the attention/praised/etc....but I never really. I keep asking myself, 'why do i keep on trying?' even though nothing good ever happens.now drawing is just part of a hobby just to pass the time.end C:

Why I like to draw?Quite a good question..........I was a person who having problem to express in words= =So I used "drawing" to represent what I feel, what I am.............but I hate been forced to draw,.......why? becoz those artworks aren't present whay I am, and I actually doesn't know how other's people expression, so.......Is hard to get any ideas to perform on my works

I draw to escape my real world, as a protest on what I'm suppose to achieve in the future. Sometimes as a tool to expose my real emotion, creating a new world for myself. Sounds kinda lame somehow.

I draw to procrastinate from finishing my homework. ^^;Most of the time, when looking at mangas or fashion mags, I might find an interesting style, fashion, pose or some element that I like, so I'll try to taught myself to drawing it out.I also draw to avoid myself from thinking about morbid stuff, especially when I'm feeling down. I'll throw in stars and smiles and pretty bishies to make myself laugh and swoon. Anything but sinking in self-pity.

I draw for alot of reasons. I draw because my hands itch to draw. ALL THE TIME.I draw because I can :DI draw because of the attention.I draw because I want to improve.I draw because of a friend. If you want to know why, just read the spoiler.[spoiler=]She died at 18 after 2 years of struggling with bone cancer. We were a group of otakus who can draw well and of the four of us, I'm the only one wanting to be mangaka in the future. She had no idea of what she wants to become though. I smsed her throughout the whole month since she was declared terminal. She stayed home with a life support system since the doctors couldn't do anything anymore. She drew and drew and drew at home to forget about the pain she's going thru. I SMSed her the day before she passed away. We talked about stuff..about friends and maplestory..and I can tell that she's in so much pain. Yet, she doesn't want to stop texting me when I told her she should rest. She asked me, "Miinru(YES, she calls me by my IGN in maple, she's kinda funny sometimes :D) you are to be a manga-ka?" I replied , "Yes and I'll do it for you. Please don't give up hope yet k. I'll give you poccoyo if you stay strong." After a long 50 minutes, she replied "Sorry for the late reply. I am having difficulty breathing." and then another short reply "I'm glad we were friends. I'm glad you'll do it for me. Gambateh!" and that was her last message to me. I replied "Thanks, and I love you too :3 bwahahaha *totysmiles* (@xo) Is james with you now? OMG breathing problem?? I'm totally coming over tomoro!! Ask a doctor to come over now!!!!" She never replied. Later at night, I prayed to dear god "Dear God, please please hear my prayer! I have said this a thousand times before, but please give strength to my friend Sharon Yap..Please!! Take away her pain Lord! Take away her breathing problems, heal her Lord!!!" Then I sat down and cried. "Amen." At 1am, her brother called me and to announce her death. I was struck in the heart and I cried some more. I loved her more than a friend. Now she's gone? She stopped breathing at 8.45pm, chinese new year eve. Rest in Peace, Sharon Yap Shu Wen. I will continue this chapter of my life for you, that you'll be smiling down at me from heaven.

Maa~ My reasons to draw(or any other form of art)are mostly the many basic reasons why everyone draws as well~ To express myself~To attract attention.takes away the boredom or as a stress reliever~makes me happy~Drawing enables me to create something~bring to life or capture something I want in whatever way I can.So these are a few of the reasons why I started drawing xD But it was 1st mostly influence~

Why do I draw? Good question.I usually draw whenever I'm stressed or I'm freaking out over something, so I need to vent out my anger into creativity instead. ...on other times though, I have a Muse Bunny hopping in my brain and my hands are itching to just sketch it out. So I just do. =)
