    I can't draw but I like to, this is where I will post doodles.
    Feel free to request, I don't know what to draw most of the time.
    I figure I will start with this doodle,
    IMG_20151006_091357297.jpg
    Instead of a "Senior Quote" we got a box to do with whatever we pleased, so this is what I did.
    It was suggested that you sign your name but whatever.

    I drew this Pom the other day,

    These are pretty decent for someone who says they can't draw.

    That's the most important thing fam. If you love it just keep doing it. There's nothing more satisfying than picturing a scene/scenario in your head and being able to create it in the real world. Besides based on these sketches you have a good grasp of scaling which is where a lot of people (including myself) fall over.

    If you want to practice draw me a picture of Arizona balancing a bottle of milk on her head. If you don't feel like drawing the full body just draw from the neck up.

    We have spider Velvet. Think you could might do one or two of the others as spiders?

    EDIT: My bad, I forgot to mention how nice these look. Fine job, good fellow. Fine job indeed.

    Gonna have to agree with Enma here these aren't bad at all. Wish my year book had done something similar to that, just feels more personal if you can do something like that. Any who looks great keep up the good work.

    Hey, man, most people have trouble with the legs, you're doing just fine. Nothing wrong with not drawing perfectly, no one does. The more you draw the better your stuff will become, don't sweat it!

    I will totally draw that; right now should work. I should post it tomorrow.
    And as for the Pom drawing, I drew the legs really short as a joke. It did start as the first version I posted, where I just left the legs unfinished, but I thought that it would be funny to make her really short like a corgi.

    That's not actually Pom's neck. That's a pompadour that had sprouted her face.

    I hope that other people will post their art here too.

    Honestly, the only difference between "being able to draw" and NOT is whether or not you spend time on it. Most people who say they "can't draw" just don't have the patience for it. I can't draw anything if I'm just like "Oh I wanna do a quick sketch" but if I sit for an hour and really slowly do it, I'll get something that looks okay at least. With experience comes speed, though.

    But if that class was art class, you'd ace it. And I'll also be keeping an eye on this thread. Might get some cool animation ideas if I wasn't swamped already.

    @Cinnamaldehyde at least you can draw them pretty accurate from memory. Ask me to doodle and it'll look like this.

    This was an art class assignment where we had to spell something with characters, so this is what I did. I bet you can guess the letters even though they are hard to read.

    Neat! I think it is good. It looks like it came out of some 1990s manga.

    When I thought about making the characters into spiders I immediately thought of making the cute little puppies into spidogs.

    Are you seeing this ManeSix? You see what you've started??

    Sick work btw Cinnamaldehyde. Poms right eye just needs to be angled a little further down or her left eye needs to come up a little.
