Wait what? People like me? I'm so incredibly flattered! Thanks!
@Maltese Honestly, I don't know.
Here's a brief (we'll see how that goes XD) summary of my art experience.
I remember in Kindergarten, all I could draw were hearts and horribly deformed flowers. I'd rather use a coloring book. But I did use those often.
By second grade, I was drawing dogs. Maybe when I get my camera to work I'll try to recreate one and post it. It was pretty bad, and too cartoon-ish for my tastes now.
In third grade, I had this phase of drawing horses. They were so good, and surprisingly anatomically correct, considering my age. I must've had a million of them! After third grade, though, I've never been able to get correct horse anatomy.
Then my friend inspired me to draw wolves in anime, which back then I thought was just a style and not also a genre of television. My wolf anatomy was and is still a little off, and I definitely don't draw them as well as I draw people.
Then my other friend introduced me to anime people. I stuck to it like glue, and since then I've perfected my style enough that the anatomy can be called decent.
I really didn't start my chibi style until I started drawing on Hopscotch. I needed a simple, cute style that was uniwue and still close to the classic kawaii potatoes I see walking around. That's where it came from! In life, I still draw more anime than chibi.
So, from that (not) brief history of my drawing experience, friends and the Internet are probably my "inspiration" for art.
@Candycane I decided to add your question to this post, since they're similar.
Paper. Always paper.
I draw on Hopscotch and I had a phase with ArtStudio for a while, but my best anatomy always comes on paper. So I guess you won't see any good art until I figure out how to work this computer. XD
That c: is so derpy and cute! I love it! I personally have an obsession with "XD"
Inspiration for specific work usually comes from stuff in my life. ( so specific Serenity XD ) Right now I'm doing an OC 30 Day Challenge, which I'd be happy to share, but the OC I'm using is carefully constructed through research as to not make her too Sue-ish. Most other art comes from random bursts of ideas in my head.
Thanks for asking!
