Everything here is true! I hate drawing hands with a passion.

Here's a few everyone can relate to.

"Is that anime?"

"Can you draw me?" 

"Your OC looks like (insert name here)."

When you're trying to draw something and people are looking over your shoulder to watch and you start getting nervous and you end up messing up the drawing.

Pfft! Yes! :XD:

I have one. That one moment when you're sketching the body and stuff, then once you go to draw the whole thing you realize everything's out of proportion. Then you're all like: :iconwhyyyplz:

Another one: When you screw up your inking and you're all like: NOOO!! :iconshizuoplz: then... :iconsulkplz: ...for a few hours.

Omg! Yes! The proportion thing happens to me when I draw humans because I tend to be at an angle when I sketch, so when I stand up to look at it, everythings all afflicted. Like legs too long, arms too long, head too big, short torso- it looks like some sort of spider alien creature. Llama Emoji-47 (Pretty Please) [V2] 

God's yes. Inking is TERRIFYING! XDDD

I'd punch 'em in the f***'in face if they see me drawing something and ask "You drew that?!" (Strictly because of my  A.M.P.) (Anger Management Problems)


To which I would respond

"No I was just sitting here copy pasting this beautiful image on my invisible laptop which is somehow connected to the paper I'm drawing on,WHAT THE F*** DO YOU THINK SHERLOCK?!?!"

Ugh. I detest backgrounds too. Mainly because I'm too lazy to spend all that time and effort on one. xD I agree about the perfect thing though. I like my lines and shapes to be a certain way, so if it doesn't go as planned, I'm like- - FIRERAGE -.

Mainly because I'm too lazy to spend all that time and effort on one ' ..that's soooo me i find it so much more interesting drawing characters etc. but if i want to become a professional i'll need to master backgrounds too right? ;) ..

Now the ones i come up against them most..hmmm. the 1st two, of course the eyeball thing (happens all the freagin tiiiime :angry:) and the embarrasing look i guess :P

Yeah, but we should still be proud to be artists, after all, life is a lot more fun when you work with your imagination to create something great (I honestly don't know how I lived before I discovered my artistic side).

So true. Life without creativity, imagination, art, music, and theater would just be soooooo boring. 
Lol, you probably got through it by using your imagination. Like when I was little and didn't draw so much, I used to run around outside pretending to be wolves and lions and such. XD
