    I myself have wrestled with demons and monsters, so I'd say these are my favourite to draw, but anything that is related to fantasy art and anything that is an escape from lifes boredom that could set in at any moment!

      Vampires, other monsters, and ships. Vampires because I have been writing about them. the same can be said for other monsters. Ships probably because I need an overseas vacation.

      I draw lots of goofy, cartoony stuff -- used to freak my high school art teacher out with my detailed strips featuring the horrific exploits of a bunch of cute, fuzzy little bunnies armed with guns and chainsaws.

      I remember doing life drawing class and there were two models one man and one woman and the mans face was priceless as it was as red as a beetroot as he was a slightly shy life drawing model around a nude woman sat directly opposite him, but his miniature third leg was not shy as he sat there looking at them nice plump melons!!!lol

      I'm not a fan of drawing nudes as I get distracted, especially if it's a lady....

    When it comes to art, I am completely artless. My father taught me how to draw the profile of a Native American complete with headdress. I don't do it very well, but it's my favorite thing to draw.

    People - men and women, though I tend to favor women. I enjoy doing faces alone, and also figures. I've never worked with a live model - I'm sure it would be very interesting!
    Sometimes I try to be as realistic and portrait-like as possible, and other times I have gone over into fantasy and had fun with faeries & the like. I even did a half-decent dragon once, but I get the most pleasure out of creating new people on paper. Creepy, eh? smile

    You're a great artist by the way Wayne - and a fellow Yorkshireman by the look of things. Though I'm not a bloke and you're more likely to claim Hull than Yorkshire?

    1. waynet profile image74
      waynetposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I'd say Yorkshireman over Hull, because it sounds better, because when people know you are from Hull, they look at you like turd on the floor with hairs and sweetcorn in it!! lol!

      1. frogdropping profile image83
        frogdroppingposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        They do? Oh! I didn't know that! I love Hull, it's a great place. And besides, Yorkshiremen are classed as tight fisted buggers, so you can't win neutral

        Do you have the Yorkshire accent? I don't have a hugely obvious one, I lived too near the North Yorks borders for that.

        aye ooop lad, tha' knows and all that smile

        And Cris - I like charcoal. It's so smudgy big_smile

            Ahhh there's nothing quite like holding a piece of carbon/fossilized tree/whatever it is - in your hand. And the smudging is brilliant. Great for touching stuff you shouldn't. Even more so when it's white and not yours big_smile

    Hi guys I love to draw cars! I started at the age of 15 and today (...many many many years later...) I am a car design manager working in automotive design studio in Europe. I also help young design students to get better going to design school for visits or sponsoring projects. In the past (when I worked in Italy) I gave car design courses in several design schools.

    Cars! However my hobby is oil painting.

    I always liked to draw animals and nature scenes, I think because of the various textures.  6B woodless pencils are great for smudging, and give deep black color.  Clayboard is also pretty cool.

    I like to draw people best--faces and the human figure.  Next is probably landscapes--mountain ranges, trees, etc.  I'm not a fan of architectural types of drawings--I struggle to place people in man-made landscapes.

    I also enjoy fantasy art, a by-product of my childhood love of comic books.

    i don't normally draw UNLESS I'm in a meeting and i want to make it look like I'm writing down every word.  The "drawing" is a house (square with a triangle as the roof) with an "X" in the square.  The game is to try and draw it whole without lifting your pen.  I've learned several different ways of doing this.  Or if a word is written on the page I will color in the 'holes' and then for whatever reason I start drawing triangles around the outside and connecting them.  I'm certain this is a sign of my significant intelligence....LOL

    Lisa HWposted 9 years ago

    I have no imagination or artistic creativity (none!), so the only thing I do (and it's been awhile) is figure-drawing (with or without face detail).  I've done portraits a few times.  My problem is once I have the person my lack of imagination means that's it - no artsy (or even realistic) background details, no pretty accents, nothing.  Just a person on paper.  That's primarily how I write too - pretty much "human-centered" and reality-based.  Whether writing or drawing, I can generally take (or think about) what already exists and make it aesthetically pleasing, but my lack of creativity is dismal.  lol
