1) why do you draw/paint?
I draw and illustrate in hopes of gaining ground professionally. Not to mention, I have nervous hands. If I'm not doing anything, I feel like I'm wasting time. To that end, drawing is a constructive and mentally engaging use of the energy that would otherwise be used mentally beating myself up over sitting around and doing nothing. Not to mention I love to create stories, whether through illustration or writing, so I keep going in hopes of making something that people will actually want to see someday. 

2) what do you draw/paint, and why?
I generally draw humanoids and human figures, though I have been also working on backgrounds a little more since I've been comicking. Comics might not require a background, but backgrounds lend to context, which is very important to set the scene. 

3) how long have you been creating art, and what sparked your passion?
Gracious... I mean, I've been drawing for longer than I've been on dA, but I'm not sure I'd call it 'art'. After all, what is art? I suppose I started making actual art about four years ago, after starting to understand the concept that what I was making was not art. This was sparked by Ron Mazellan, who was my main professor of illustration, and well as a professional in the field. He was the first person to actually believe that what I made was worth it. Long before I did. He's amazing. His work is amazing. Go check him out. For real, fam. 

4) what forms of art block do you usually get?
Namely? When I just can't do anything. I literally go through freezes where I can't draw or write or anything, partially due to a somewhat depressive state. 

5) what causes your art block? how do you try to break the block?
Well, okay, it's not normal depression so to speak. It's dysthymia; a very low-key form of chronic depression. It's not as debilitating as some people's, so normally all it takes to get out of the block is to go see and talk to people. Granted, that's the hard part. Once I've hit that barrier, it's hard to want to go see and talk to people, so I just spiral downwards until I force myself to be social. 

6) what/how do you wish you could draw/paint, other than what you draw/paint now?
I wish I could do fantastical creatures a little better. I need to actually get out my references and do that. I'd love to be able to solidify such drawings. 

7) who are the artists that inspire you, and why?
Well, there's wahay, who was one of the many people I met through University. Ron Mazellan as well. Going back a little bit, I can say that J. C. Leyendecker, Howard Pyle, and N. C. Wyeth are some of the people I look up to, and to reach way back there, I do love me some Jaquez-Louis David. Now, does my work even compare to theirs? Do I follow their style? No. Not in the slightest. But I look up to them anyways. 

8) do you like drawing for others, or just yourself? or both?
I draw for both. In a way, pleasing others pleases me, so I can't really separate the two. I guess it has become more for me, since I don't do much fan-art anymore, but I'm trying to balance it out. 

9) do you like the artistic style that you have created? why or why not?
Not really. I feel like it's too rough. It needs a lot of work. Granted, it's improved, and hopefully will continue to improve, but it's not nearly the quality that it needs to be. 

10) small challenge! post a "then and now" picture! an artwork that you created in the beginning of your artistic journey compared to how you draw now!
I did this pretty recently so... Draw This Again by crazyshiro Here you go. Enjoy. 

EDIT: Right. Apparently I have to tag people. 
I tag nearmouse, DarkFirestorm123, and CherryChimes, I suppose. Don't worry about it if you don't want to do it, guys.

Otherside Hopefuls: Batch One
Sorry I haven't been on in a while, lovelies! Moreso that I've been here, but I haven't been drawing or posting much simply because of my... Well, my schedule. No two ways around that. 

Anyways, since :iconothersideoct: is now waiting on judges' decisions, why not do something? ^w^
