    So yesterday I felt like testing out my

    letraset pens and decided to draw one of my friends to say thank you for her kindness and acceptance. Here it is.

    Anyone conflicted with poor self-esteem in

    their art? I love to draw but at the same time I hate it ... because I feel its not good enough and envy eats at my heart so much. Any other artists who have or had this sort of issue ? and if so, any advice to actually ENJOY drawing? my art is in my photos album if youre...

    Recently, I took up life drawing classes,

    it's really fun. This week we had to draw our model in the style of Film Noir, with him wearing a fedora and overcoat (and nothing else). This was what I drew.

    I wish I had even a little talent.

    I wrote a story for Christmas for my grandchildren and really need it to be illustrated. It involves pets that we have so will probably use photos of the actual pets, but I do wish I could draw. I think that would mean more down the road.

    This is probably my favourite painting I've

    done. It was my first time using watercolour without drawing the subject first. Hope you all like it.

    Though since I never see my style

    as other people's paintings I feel like no one would like my paintings.. It's very modern and geometric... I will turn this into a painting this weekend!!

    When I need to escape,

    and fall into another world. I just grab 4 colours. That's all it takes to create art. When I'm stressed or a bit down. I put on some music and the tooth brush sticks between my teeth as I think of ways to drag it through the canvas. When I'm bored....I just dip the brush in...

    I love to draw. I always drew

    since I was a child, both in schools and at home. And always followed my art classes with great interest.

    even though I'm really terrible at doing

    paintings and drawing and stuff, I really love doing it with a passion. it calms me down in a way nobody has ever been able to do.

    I'm a self-taught artist.

    What do you think about this? The nose looks a bit lopsided to me, and the shading isn't really complete. Anyway! Thoughts?

    I dropped my paintbrush

    I love it! I have never been the artistic one.

    But I've recently discovered that I can paint! I've been painting over 5 times a week. My room is flooded with canvasses and doodles. I don't draw real life, I draw whatever comes into my mind. I don't think or plan. I just dip the paint brush in paint and take my hands to...
