oh I always do gift art, the amount of times just drawing a card or picture for friends has saved me due to my forgetfulness. Yeah some of the things I've been asked to draw...my friend once gave me this really detailed comic book and asked me to draw one of the pictures in it >_<. what kind of style do you draw?
I draw in lots of different styles, though pretty much all cartooning. I do a little bit of realism, but expressions are my passion and they are just so much more fun in comic style! I always experiment. Generally my style is as you've seen thus far on here, but I dew a few others if I feel a desire too. Alas it all depends on mood.

awesome, yeah it's always the way you feel that make you draw different things, makes ya have to wait until the cycle repeats until you can draw what you want again oh, love your char for the dream rp and the drawing, very amusing personaltiy.

yeah I know, well I couldn't think of a good profile and history to have a bad guy, as most of the characters have been good and female in their majority, so yeah, horrible past time >_<. I know, I should, i've never tried drawing a werewolf before. Artist block makes me sad as well and writing block, and both at the same time! =< thats why I love holidays though, as there is so much time to get over the block and get back to sketching ^^
Its always a little harder to come up with a villain, but their novelty makes them fun! I'm playing a more sinister sort in Free Fall, which I'm really looking forward to. Don't be nervous to draw something new though! You may find yourself liking it :3!
Holidays are great for inspiration too! XD People get wild and crazy and silly little festive merriment visions dance through yer head. At least it does for me >.>

haha, yeah, they do around christmas and easter, but not summer, I guess because not much happens where I live during summer holidays. Villans can be hard, I don't ever get the urge to play them much. Very true I'll have a try, my people are kinda manga style, it's annoying I can't manage to make them look completely realistic. But eyes have to be my favourite thing to draw ^^
Summer time is beaches and swim suits! Hehe! I grew up on the beach so that may just be me. If yer nervous about playing a bad guy I'm sure everybody will be willing to give you tips! I'm pretty new, but everyone's been so nice so far, I doubt it'd be any trouble! My only advice would be to always be thinking in terms of ulterior motive, the sneaky villains are the most evil in my opinion XD
I draw in a manga style too, if ya cant tell. I have a lot of American cartooning influence too, though. Eyes are definitely the best part! They're versitle and have so much heart in them! Thats where your character can really shine through!

yeah, the one part I could draw before I figured out the rest haha yeah, I've had a few beach trips, but I live in england so it's pretty much: yaay! beach! and then it starts raining again >_<. Also whenever I go down with the family to a place near the beach a child always seems to befriend me for some reason...I think kids see something about me that means that I won't ignore them. Manga style is cool, I just would rather get other styles in too. cool, i like american cartoon, they're good.
But yes, I'll be sure to ask. Just gotta prep myself to be in the mind of a bad guy... :q *concentrates* although my character is bad, but in the very bitter kind of "yeah, my life's screwed so why should I care what happens to all you." kinda thing, the hard part is making sure he doesn't turn nice half way through.
Thats so cute! I love little kids! I have way too many of them around in my life. 35 cousins and I'm 5th oldest heh heh... Always a new baby in the family :3 Its awesomely fun.
I understand, its always so irritating getting into a rut like that, having the same exact sort of drawing. But it also establishes you as an artist, ya know? I like having my own style! Its distinct enough for people to recognize and thats kinda neat. I posted a picture on a mule that nobody knew about in an old forum site I was on and a ton of people figured out who I was XD I was sad and excited all at once hehe
Now don't force anything! If it would be natural for him to turn good, then let it be! Who knows, maybe he'll fight for the other side to prevent a greater evil. Or maybe he'll be wooed by the greater evil by being told they'd bring his lover back! Oooooo! XD My imagination runs wild! hahaha!

*gasp* ooo, very good idea! Thats true, I'm not sure where I'll go with him now, I was first thinking he'd turn good because he's kinda hearted but with the thoughts of bringing back his lost lover...hmm, yay thank you for your ideas, they have stemmed many more . Thats really cool that they all recognised you by your picture, definetly a recognised style. I'm still juggling styles around, just a while ago I was drawing cartoon demons with big cheesy grins, now I'm back to manga style *shrug* at least it's varied. Aww, yeah I'm in the same situation, lots of cousins and brothers, in total I have 7 siblings >_<. When the younger cousins are all round at my grandparents they usually find it funny to all gang up on me at once and they're all at hip level. So I'm down within a few seconds
Woo! Plots aren't my particular forte, but I can come up with a decent twist or two sometimes! I'm glad to have prodded you a bit >:3 DoS is gonna be a fun RP when it gets up and running! We need some more members for it though, I do think. The only characters up for it are yours, mine, and Swift's XD
Always fun to branch out, but theres nothing wrong with drawing a way you enjoy drawing! Thats why I have no problem sticking to my simple sort of art for the most part.
Wow! 7 siblings? I have 5 and I thought that was a lot! Ah-ha! Munchkin attack hm? Those are always fun. Until they all play 'dog pile' and climb up on you. 30lbs isn't much, but when they gang up on you >.> It can hurt!

hah! yeah the pounds really start to pile on when they all come at once, heh. I know, and to think I had none until year 6 of primary school >_<. Drawing dragons and creatures has to be my best and easiest thing to draw, it's what I started off on for some reason ^^. My natural style seems to be very busy, like when doing graphics work I always add stuff everywhere. Plots aren't brilliant for me either, I can think up a few at times but thats only when I'm on a sugar high definetly gonna be good, i thought there was more joining in? maybe we just gotta wait for them to post their characters. The one I've started making only has 3/4 I think. I've done my first sketch of my characters face , he has stubble!
