What got you into art?

Post by Lex Luthor » 7 months ago

I did an art class back in high school and that's what kept me going mostly. I don't think it was something I wanted to pursue hence why I don't pick up a sketchbook anymore :(

What about you?

I've always liked art and making it, although I never got very good. I think I grew to love it both thanks to great art teachers and also thanks to my father, who didn't just dote on me and say all my work was great. He taught me early on that I could improve by telling me the parts he liked and didn't like of my doodles. That made me want to work harder on them.

That's cool your dad was so honest!

I guess I mostly got into it in middle school. I think after I made friends with a fellow Sailor Moon fan. She was really good at drawing, and I started after that I think. I was horrid at first. What helped me the most was drawing from other pictures. Not tracing, but drawing them on my own.
