Call me Shift. I've been drawing for years, ever since I was 6 or 7. I draw mostly animals and cartoons, but I'm starting to work on people. Drawing has got to be one of my favorite things to do. Not only do I have fun doing it, but I can express myself through it. I'm also a firm believer that anyone can learn to draw if they put their heart into it - so in other words, PRACTICE! Unlike most people, I also don't have a problem with tracing. Tracing can actually teach you how to hold a steady hand and to watch for details that can make or break a drawing. Then, once you feel like you have a firm grip on that, you can graduate to free-handing. Tutorials can really help in that regard. Anyway, I'm about done boring you with my lectures. The rest is below. Any questions? Comment me.
Tools of the trade
Standard No. 2 or lead pencil. Colored pencils (on occasion). Eraser. Pepper - er, paper.
Besides drawing, I also like to write stories. I mostly write fantasy and realistic, but I do go sci-fi on occasion. Then sometimes I'll just write in the 'Wtf' genre, in which I pretty much write something for my entertainment. They're not necessarily about anything, and they end rather abruptly. A good example of this would be 'Uncomfortable Style,' which you can find on my dA. Anyway, I also like to mess around on my guitar. I mostly play rock and metal on it, and I only play for my entertainment. Lastly, I like to play video games on my Wii, PS2, or PS3. Some of my favorite games are Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, the Batman Arkham games, Prince of Persia, Okami, the Legend of Zelda, Spyro the Dragon (not Skylanders), Sly Cooper, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Super Mario Bros.
Favourite books
Eragon, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Maximum Ride, The Sight, Redwall, Eon, Pathfinder, The Chronicles of Vladimir Todd, Nightlight, White Fang, To Kill a Mockingbird, Death Note, and Off-White. The worst book I have ever read is Breaking Dawn.
