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

I'm a very creative person. It means I often see things in my mind, things that don't exist. These are mainly creatures, similar to the real ones, but non-existent. I also have a very... comprehensive imagination, which means I don't only see things, I feel them. I can, very vividly, imagine the weight of antlers on my head, the pressure of air under my wings, or thick skin of my prey folding under my claws. And when I create a new creature in my mind, and feel it, too, I get this desire to be it, to feel it entirely. By drawing it I can extend this feeling. A lot of artists make the same facial expression as the character they're drawing, because somehow they transfer what they feel at the moment to the drawing. It's the same with me—to draw a creature, I must imagine being it, and I need to ask myself a lot of questions about this state. The answers make the feeling more complete, and for the time of drawing I become the creature. It's the closest I can get to being an animal while keeping my human mind.

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)
