Drawing is ART
I started to fall in love with drawing since my teenage years in school.
My parents and sibling are not artistic people nor draw well at all. They can't even draw a house, let alone people.
I came to know that drawing is ART, one of the techniques where a person draws an image of an object or anime based on the actual picture.
Frankly speaking, I can't draw a "REAL" human image at all. It needs a lot of patience and concentration to draw out the fine lines of contours which gives the expression of art coming alive.
Once, our Art teacher told everyone in the class to draw a Chinese lady wearing Chongsam, a traditional dress for Chinese ladies that shows tight figure lines.
A couple of my friends could draw the image very well, almost like real while I drew a semi-human anime character instead. My teacher told me that I could draw better in anime character instead of objects, which I agree with her 100%.
Hence, I gave up in drawing objects and engrossed myself into drawing anime characters such as Snoopy, Garfield, Flintstones , etc.
Many of my friends and classmates were amazed of my new found talent in ART, that is drawing anime.
I found passion in drawing since then. I could draw any anime characters when I see the actual image on website, a book or even newspaper comic strip.
Drawing isn't hard if you practice often. As the saying goes" Practice makes perfect!"
Do you have a passion in ART?
Do you draw object or anime ?
