Our Admin, who art in cyber-space, Hallowed be thy UserName. Thy Avatar come. Thy FAQ be done, On my computer as it is on the server. Give us this day our Daily Deviation. And forgive us our rants, as we forgive those who rant against us. And lead us not into policy violation, but deliver us from llamas. For thine is the perl script, and the power, and the root password, forever and ever. Amen
What do you draw for? Why do you want learn how to draw? What got you into drawing? These sound like easy questions, but the answer is not that obvious. Sure, you draw because it's enjoyable to you. But why is it enjoyable? Because you like impressing others, or maybe there's a deeper need inside you? Or maybe you just think it would be a nice job to be an artist, but what makes you think so? I'd like you to think about it, and if you feel like sharing it, please leave a comment. No matter how long, I'll read them all (I may not reply, but I still want to know your story). And please, take some time to think over the answer, don't comment right now, maybe even sleep on it. "I draw because I like it" is not really the answer. Why do you like it? Leave the most common reason (the desire to be admired) aside and try to see the deeper motive. I'm sure there is one!
(If you can, please share this journal with your friends. This is a kind of research that will help me write more accurate articles for people learning how to draw)
