...inpiration comes in many forms...
Yesterday a fellow blogger, by the name of Dan, inspired me to pick up my pen and pencil and draw a tree! :D
First of all, I enjoy drawing nature, but Dan has a certain free flow stroke with carefree lines and I ached to mimick it and make it my own...*waves at Dan* (psst! I hope you don't mind that I copied your style XD maybe I should have asked you first before I posted..haha.)

Here are a few of Dan's artwork that fed my creativity. Talk to me tree: this piece is brilliant! It made me ACHE to draw...and demmit! Dan!! I shall hunt you down if you gave this piece away! I'd even buy it from you (depending on what your offered price is...XD I'm not made out of money.)

STOMP: Bah. Dan's creativity is out of this world, it partly makes me jealous...*grumbles*
Not Getting Wet (is romantic too.): I like how he can just scribble and make it a cool piece of artwork...if I tried scratching away like that I'd get upset with myself...."BaH! I'm not DOING IT RIGHT!! WHAT'S THE RIGHT WAY TO SCRIBBLE?!?" 0.o

Never Apart: My ultimate favorite, why? First of all it's beautiful, and second, it reminds me of when I went to Philippines and left my poor mate all alone here in the United States for a month and a half =..( hmph. way to sell it Dan! (jk)

And finally, thanks for the inspiration Dan, The picktcha is foh youu ^.^

Meh. It isn't as good as his, but...whatever! I enjoyed drawing it. :)

Have a good day everybody! I'm off to work! see yah!

    @ Makeupfairytale: Painting isn't much different, but it certainly (for me at least) is much more difficult! So good luck with your class!

    I'm actually planning to take up Visual Communications here at my local community college ^.^

    haha yep..dan's a cool guy! he also inspired me to draw when i started my first blog...his free lines are just so awesome...i envy that quality of his...that he's "free". free in a sense that he never falters to draw what he's feeling at the moment. i don't have that, sadly. that's why i always look up to him. he's what an artist is supposed to be...he inspires and make you feel. :)

    (he sent me one of his sketch btw! yass!)

    nich! thanks for featuring my sketches, anyway just draw whatever you feel like drawing, if it does not come out the way you wanted it, do not throw it away, you can come back to look at it in a few days and say 'this one is not bad at all' :) and just keep on drawing, it may not be your obra, but its good practice, just keep on drawing and drawing and drawing hehehehe and most of all, draw what you like, do not punish yourself by drawing what you hate to do hehehe
