My Art and Why I draw the things I do

Journal Entry: Tue May 13, 2014, 9:06 AM

I've never talked about it, about the range of interests, styles, and varying art that I do. But I just want to write this journal to provide insight on why I draw the range of things that I do. 

Look at the bottom.


    For the longest time when I was younger, from about 12ish to about last year around March, all I cared for my personal art, was dragons. I kept perusing how to best understand and draw dragons in my style. I still am. I need to get back to studying more muscle diagrams  >.> I still love drawing dragons, although I don't draw them as much anymore, still love em.

    Cause of college, I have had to venture out into other genres, themes, and techniques of art. From that, I have come to love painting, and digital painting. From that, my interests in digital art and traditional VARY a lot. From dragons to mlp, to still life, macabre, and vanitas. Most of the artwork I did in college, is posted here.

The best answer as to why I like macabre and vanitas, out of everything I like to draw, is because it goes back to my interests in studying muscle diagrams. I LOVE the lines in muscles, the forms they make, and the ideas I get from it.

    I got into drawing my little pony just about the time after I had joined Second Life. WHY? Cause almost all of the sims I go to on SL, are my little pony themed. I get to walk around as a pony, in a pony world. I've made many good friends. Why wouldn't you want you to draw something that makes you happy??

Basically, I wanted to talk about this because, in a nutshell, with my art, I have never been a "one-trick pony." I like doing what I like. I like trying new things. I like drawing what I draw. Even if most of it is commissions, I still love it.

To those who watch me for dragons, I apologize to you for not drawing dragons as much as I used to. I do want to try to draw dragons more, I really do.

To those who see the ponies in my gallery, and think that I didn't draw my other stuff, just look through my gallery, look at the dates, the history, and the development of my interests, styles, and art.
