    I've been lurking around this forum for a little bit now, and decided to join recently. I forgot to make post about me sooner..
    I like drawing for fun and for commissions, but I'll never consider it as a profession or anything more than a hobby.
    Recently I've been taking up commissions, which is a fun challenge, and I hope that with the money I earn from that, I can attend an art school over the summer.
    I really like this forum, because it's friendly and open to critique, unlike others. :)

    I'll post some art... when I get around to it. xD;

    Well that's the idea here. We're not here to make snobbish comments on how people should be drawing as if EVERYONE wants to be a professional artists, merely enjoy looking at what each of us is creating.

    That's a good target if I've ever heard one!

    That's the aim: to offer a community atmosphere rather than a "trial by fire" sort of approach most other drawing forums prefer!

    Hi everyone.
    I am fairly new to the drawing board, so please don’t get mad at me if I do something wrong.

    I have recently discovered that I have some talent for drawing anime.
    It started with drawing Pokemon characters.
    Then my abstract thinking took over and I have just started (as of two days ago) creating fantasy manga of pokemon.

    Here’s a picture of myself that I drew.
    [​IMG]

    And I am letting my imagination run wild with my newly found creativity and talent.

    Well, that’s all I have to say for now.

    Hi, I'm J. B. Warner (or jbwarner86, as I'm known on DeviantArt). You may or may not be familiar with my work. I've posted my stuff in here a few times before, but either it wasn't all that good or nobody cared because I can never get anybody to say anything about anything I draw. Not just here, either, but anywhere. And of the 125+ people who watch me on DeviantArt, only about five of them know enough to offer constructive criticism that goes beyond "cool" or "lol" or "nice stuff, hey come visit my gallery". Worse still, I get people who say "I know how you feel, I don't get much feedback either," and then they just leave without actually providing me with feedback. Or they come up with excuses for why they don't say anything and then just keep on doing what they were doing.

    Look, basically, all I want is for people to look at my art and tell me what they like or don't like about it. How hard is that?

    I feel the same way. Most of my own FRIENDS don't even leave substantial comments on my dA page.

    I can tell you, though, that sometimes it's difficult leaving in-depth comments based on many silly factors. I'm guilty of it myself. Sometimes it's because I have nothing good to say about a work, and decide it's best not to say anything at all. Other times the work is just unremarkable and I feel no urge to comment about what could make it better because I just don't care about it. That's pretty lousy, but it's the truth.

    That seems to be the most popular consensus among my DA watchers, it seems. I've been trying for months to get decent feedback on my underwater-themed drawings, but when I recently asked why nobody says anything about them, pretty much everyone said "It just doesn't interest me". All they want is more Looney Tunes, more MST3K, and more of my BarbozaToons characters - and that's fine, but I have other interests.

    You've got to ask yourself, are you drawing to make others happy, are you drawing to get feedback or are you drawing because you want to? I'm guessing it's the latter. People aren't always going to be interested in what you do. We've all had this kind of problem. The real challenge is to MAKE people interested in the stuff you like. Unfortunately I don't have that answer yet, either.

    I like to imagine there's a silent group of people out there who do check out my stuff and like it, but are too shy to say anything. :sweat:

    Hey drawing board. I draw, and I’m board, so it sounds perfect!

    Despite how much I love drawing I don’t seem to post much of it. Heck, my deviantart page is pretty barren. Maybe this place can kick me till I draw some more. I’ve got a massive long running webcomic Phil Likes Tacos, about fast food and video game humor. I do it in a strange stick figure like art style. But to prove I can do better then that, I started a munch better looking comic 95 Gallons this year about fish.

    Anyway, hope I can learn some stuff here and especially help other people. I even made cookies!*

    *I didn't make cookies =(

    Great stuff. Well on.. board (more puns). We have a jam running till the end of this month on Spider-Man if you want to jump right in, otherwise, hang out, post images, comment on others or throw any art topic/questions our way.

    The more people post, the more interesting the community becomes!

    Awesome news. The more DBJ regulars, the more fun they become. With Stu running that feature, I'm sure we'll be having many more DBJ to come!

    Fan artist & writer here.

    I'm called Anubis Soundwave here. I like animation, and want to produce some cartoons someday.

    I do enjoy writing fan fiction, especially crossovers. I also like drawing fan art--but need to work ever-harder on that.

    I'm from North Charleston, SC, aged 30.

    I do wish more people would contribute to this forum. I'd also like to see some more threads sharing tips and techniques of how they do their art. Bic's thread is a good example of what I'm talking about.

    I whole heartedly agree LLJ.

    All I can recommend is that people post threads asking for tips/techniques and that would be a great way to get them rolling!
