Just yesterday I got two cool drawings inspired from my looks on Lookbook.nu. I have to be honest I felt so ecstatic inside when I saw them because somehow, something about my outfits inspired them. It's an unexplainable happy feeling. I want to say a big thanks to Mikes of My Hyper Imagination and Sah of Cosmic Wonder Boy!
I always thought I would be doing something artistic since I was a kid. I drew a lot when I was younger. All my books and notebooks from Grade school til' college was full of doodles from Power Rangers, to dinosaurs, Street Fighters, X-Men, Sky Dancers, Pokemon, and even drawings of turning my friends into mythical creatures. I also drew on an entire sketchbook filled with imaginary characters that had the same face (inspired from The Nightmare before Christmas) but with different outfits. I think I had always been in love with the idea of changing a character's disposition through changing his clothes.
Unfortunately I stopped drawing when I got a full-time job (the moment I turned 18). Now my drawing kinda sucks. I still know how to sketch but I'm sure it used to be way better. If only I got a good art teacher that would teach me technical drawing when I was younger, I'd probably be really good at it now. Okay, that's a bad excuse. But still.
My younger brother (age 14) is really really good at sketching. Last Christmas I gave him art books and materials that he can read and study because I'm encouraging him to pursue art. He should because he's innately talented at it. I believe that if you know what your innate skills are, you should improve it. It wasn't given to you without a purpose. Unfortunately my parents are discouraging him because they said there's no money in art (which is highly untrue). My Dad wants him to be a lawyer even though his personality isn't really meant to be one. He's going to college real soon and I hate to see him go the wrong way. I just hope he makes the right decisions for himself.
In other news, this song's stuck in my head for almost a week but I don't know where to download it.
