Because I suppose you could say I was blessed with some skills ! So I am burdened with glorious purpose and vision ! Because women !
But seriously I now draw with the hope to one day be able to create my own graphic novels and animated works that can talk about my country and people, reflecting its enchanting and magical features. Because I believe art as a medium carries a heavy role in how people subconsciously picture the world, like how anime & manga paint such an eerie, attractive image of Japan to foreigners. And let's be real, it totally is and it greatly adds to the experience when you finally make it there someday!
And I reckon the current popular drawings works is an oligopoly that barely takes inspiration from the giant pool of diversity, culture, history, people and magic that is the world ! Giving simplified depictions of the regions people currently care less for because they've never been properly exposed to proper stuff from people with the proper knowledge and passion! So I will speak, damn it! Through my drawings !! I'll show Madagascar is an amazing place with much cooler stuff than penguins that can do karate ! And the people will like it and find it cool and appealing and enchanting, damn it! And they'll come in masses and boost tourism and give us all their money !! HAHAHA! ALSO WOMEN !! --- edit: oh dang ! °A° this is form two years ago! God knows if you still care for this! Sorry for the spam if not!
Because I am compelled to- I guess. Tricky questions require tricky answers!
hmmm.... I guess I do it because nothing else is so infinitely rewarding, infuriating, frustration, puzzling and human.
I do it for me, when I constantly feel like I'm doing things for other people- or trying to fulfill their expectations. I keep it for myself because it constantly throws new challenges my way and that makes me feel as though I am constantly growing as a person. Also when I think about why any human would make art in the first place- let alone why we find it enjoyable- I'm flabbergasted. And yet it's so... UNIVERSAL. Every human does it in one way or another. And images don't really need to be translated the way that words do. Well, there's my two cents.
Haha i dun know the meaning behind the sentence i voted XD well, for me, to express myself, to know myself, to tell stories or even just communicate to people through art. This thrill of creating variety of worlds on a piece of paper and a pencil/pen/wacom is one all of us can relate of Be it in any medium.
as a hobby! it usually comes out in shitty doodles since i dont usually think when i draw. which gives me a lot of fun varying things to work with, and helps me understand myself since i draw differently depending on my mood vuv
Have you ever seen The Red Shoes? Well, my feelings on the matter would probably be best summed up by this:
"Boris Lermontov: Why do you want to dance? [Vicky thinks for a short while] Victoria Page: Why do you want to live? [Lermontov is suprised at the answer] Boris Lermontov: Well I don't know exactly why, er, but I must. Victoria Page: That's my answer too. "
and then later in the film:
"Boris Lermontov: When we first met ... you asked me a question to which I gave a stupid answer, you asked me whether I wanted to live and I said "Yes". Actually, Miss Page, I want more, much more. I want to create, to make something big out of something little – to make a great dancer out of you. But first, I must ask you the same question, what do you want from life? To live? Vicky Page: To dance."
I've read and experienced so many stories in my life that have effected me as a person in a positive way, and helped me to become better and/or enjoy life more. I hope that I can somehow do the same if I tell some good stories, someday.
Because I need to. I have so much visions of worlds, characters and places that I simply must grab a pencil from time to time and simply draw. I have a strong will to get better at it, since I've grown a love towards drawing which is so strong that I'm always looking for different ways to convey the images in my head - this means that improvement must be obtained. I make myself happy with my art - and sometimes I want to make others happy because of it, too.
Power, the ability to put what's in your mind on the page is a very useful skill. Now I have the power to make peoples dreams come true, make money for myself, put my thoughts down in visual form, etcetc.
cause i have lotsa stories i really would like to make and let it be alive aaaaah i guess my main reason is to tell stories and have it affect people. have them react to the stories i tell emotionally? haha its great
Can't NOT, man. And your friends and family always know that something really bad, big, and toothy is chewing at your insides if you can't create something. Also, it seems to be one of the only things I can make progress in without feeling like I'm hocking my soul to get it. Unlike my pursuit of an accounting degree.
because i like creating thing it's like I could be god for a minute It's strange, i never like something most like drawing. Drawing is a relief but a pain in the same time because you want always improve yourself and your art. It's really contradictory isn't it and the most important thing then It give me a goal in my life
