    You're very interesting, you know that? :3 You talk like an artist. I figured you had some sort of classical training! I've never taken formal classes, so I find people that have really fascinating.

    Ah yes, I can definitely relate to that. It was only a few years ago that I could only *ever* draw when I was almost or completely devoid of all sensation. Those were the worst of times, :p My forte is in comic books, so I guess when there's a story involved, it's a bit easier for me to translate images into my head onto the paper. Not to confuse "create" with "creative", however. I lack creativity in almost all regards. I'd be much better at drawing fruit if they'd actually get up and do something entertaining, you know? So I can definitely identify with your issue, at least to some respect.

    I find that the best remedy is time. ;( But, realistically, changing your major was probably a good choice if you're actually looking for employment. Nowadays, graphic design and subjects to that effect are the best way to make money and use your creative side. Especially if you have a talent for it! Which clearly you do if your gallery consists of nonsensical doodles that were for fun. I'd love to see what you're capable of when you really apply yourself.

    Hey, if you're drawing for yourself-- for fun, than who cares if you stick to what your good at?

    Unfortunately, I was blessed cursed with an insatiable appetite to learn. I love exploring new mediums and really pushing myself as an artist (but then again, my relationship with art is somewhat more occupational than recreational). I do believe, however, that despite procrastination being the staple of every artist, there's also a deep desire to create in its most pristine form. And as long as you have that, your style, your comfort zone, will evolve.

    Not to rant your head off after just befriending you lmao. But so long as you have *inspiration*, who cares about motivation? At the end of the day, all of us lazy artists will keep picking up the pencil. It's in our nature. :p The most important thing is that your having fun! Everything else will fall into place! n_n;

    No problem! I'm glad my little 2 cents could help! n_n <3;

    You definitely shouldn't doubt yourself as an artist though! Trust me, I know it's hard not to be your own worst critic or a perfectionist.. but, from one artist to another, your art (and crafts, those are incredible too) really stands on its own. You totally caught my attention! ;)

    Hun, your gallery is amazing! <3333;

    I'll post a legitimate critique later on, but I couldn't resist messaging you now. ;; I'm so happy you decided to revive it! Can't wait to see more!

    I've never asked...

    I don't know if I'd benefit from college or not...

    Ok.
    I've asked because my Grandmother makes college sound like an absolute waste of money & time.
    (She did go to college, but didn't benefit from it...)

About Me

  • About icycatelf
    Biography
    I've always had a creative side. However, it wasn't until 1999 that I became inspired to become an artist after watching an anime film (Pokemon, The First Movie) in class. Since then, I've has focused mostly on producing anime and manga-style artwork, creating many original characters and creatures. I hope to some day become a concept artist for cartoons, video games, or graphic novels or become an art or graphic design teacher.

    My favorite activities include drawing, playing video games, watching anime, and reading manga. My favorite video games include those from the Pokemon and Legend of Zelda series, especially Pokemon Silver Version and Ocarina of Time. My favorite anime include Shugo Chara!, Fruits Basket, InuYasha, Minami-ke, Naruto Shippuden, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, and the various Tenchi series. My favorite manga is Pokemon Adventures/Special.

    I'm a huge Pokemon fan and have been since it all began. I was a little late on getting started on the games, but I began my journey at the age of 10 with Silver Version, selecting Chikorita as my starter. My favorite Pokemon is Dunsparce - I've been fascinated by it since I first encountered one in the original Silver Version. My favorite type is Ice. I also really like Normal and Bug-types.

    I like to chat and hang out at various Pokemon forums, where I usually show off my artwork and/or fake cards. You may have seen me around as KougaWolf, Kj'kun Neko, Nekoban Ryo, or Akiyuki Aretukasu.
