As a child, I loved drawing but I didn't do it as often as I would have liked. There were many reasons for this:
I wasn't the most likeable person as a child; I was hyperactive, loud, obnoxious, you name it; but drawing would take me to an entirely new world where I could create what I wanted and how I wanted, actually sitting down and drawing something was usually one of the few times in which I could just relax and be myself... with myself.
I was raised in a city where people simply didn't care for art. To them it was all study and work and study. Because there weren't many people who could give you tips or complement you on your art, I simply stopped looking for recognition by stopping my drawings all together.
The last reason is my parents. My dad was a drunk. My mom was hardly ever at home. Neither of them really paid much attention to art since they had never really focused in school enough to care about all there was out there. Granted my parents made a decent wage, but what's the point of having good money, when you can't spend time nor be complemented by the people you cared for the most?
I would've liked to focus on my art a lot more, and I regret not having continued drawing all throughout my elementary, middle school and high school. I'm back however, and while the calm that I used to feel while drawing is no longer necessary it's great to feel again.
Nowadays most of my drawings go on Instagram ahead of time before I post them on anything else. If anyone would like to see that art, it is under the same username DRAGONFLAVOR. I'll try to post as much as I can, and you can bet that I will keep drawing.
