Drawing Survey

stolen from theh, because, well, why not.

drawing-tastic art survey
What is your favorite subject to draw?humans
What is your most common choice in 2-d media?computer art,watercolor paint, or plain #2 pencil
Anything you refuse to draw?don't think so
Real anatomy or cartoon physics?real anatomy
Which is more important - solid inking skills or solid color theory?color, to me. I'm a color person. I don't do black and white.
Photoshop or PSP? Illustrator or Painter?Photoshop, and haven't tried either of the last two
Markers - Prismacolor or Tria?Prismacolor is definitely THE brand of colored pencils to use, but I had no idea they made markers too. And I've never heard of Tria.
Paints - oils, acrylics, or watercolors?watercolor, no question. I'm drawn to it because it's the most unforgiving paint, and I like a challenge.
Have you ever used Pointillism outside of art class?maybe once or twice, in *extremely* small areas of a larger picture
Ever imitate a popular style of art? (anime, disney, comic book...)no
How would you define your "style?"um. When I sketch recognizable objects, I sketch them either realistically or in a geometric, cubist type way. Other times I do abstract art or mix abstract components with realistic ones. Often I put words in my pictures. Nearly always there is lots and lots of dramatic color.
What is one area of drawing that you need to improve in?making faces look like the specific people I'm trying to draw, so that anyone who knows them would recognize them.
When did you start drawing as a hobby? (we all drew when we were little)I got serious somewhere between ages 9 and 11.
What kind of sketchbook do you have? Brand? Size? How old is it?I have lots of different sizes and brands of sketchbooks. Way too many to list.
How many sketchbooks have you had previous to this?I've saved four completed sketchbooks with drawings and paintings on every page.
How many sketchbooks do you go through in a year?varies drastically depending on the year. In recent years, barely a fraction of one.
#2 yellow pencil or a clicky pencil?#2.
What kind of eraser do you use?Usually, a regular pink one. But I have a kneaded one around someplace.
Who are your artistic influences?I used to have answers to that kind of question, but now it's too hard to think about.
What books would you recommend to aspiring artists?Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
Do you have any favorite online tutorial sites?no
What is the most money you've ever made on one drawing / illustration / painting?$25, when my high school commissioned me to paint one of the neighboring school's mascots on a 5' x 5' piece of plywood to be hung in the school gym along with a bunch of identically-sized pieces of plywood featuring all the other local schools' mascots.
What do you hope to accomplish with your art? Do you want to go anywhere with it in life?I don't really care. I just like knowing how.
Finally, why do you draw?because I have a drawing instrument in my hand.
