I want to be an author who illustrates her own books. Unfortunately, the only thing I'm good at drawing are horses and self-portraits, so unless I expand my horizens greatly, I fear the subjects I can write about will be rather limited.

Don't worry, the only things I'm good at drawing are clothes (without the person) and paintings I copy from books.  My people look like animals and my animals look like very ugly people.  Although sometimes I can draw something I see or imagine (unless there are people in it).

Drawing books really help, and actually one of the best drawing books you can get is by Mark Kistler and It's called Draw squad. It definately improved my drawing skills. I reccomend that for anyone, even if you think you already know how to draw. It's a lot of fun.

Hi,    I'm an Artist.     I like drawing Horses,   and I've also done a bit of Oil Painting.    I would like to Illustrate some books someday.

I like to sketch! A lot. People and dragons mostly.

My only problem is I'll start something and get bored, so I've got all these half-finished sketches lying around in my bedroom. Same problem with novels and such. I have such a short attention span.

I also like to play with Flash. :)

I love to draw!! My room is COVERED with pictures!! I really love drawing people and have gotten quite good, if I do say so myself. I also love writing. I would love to illustrate my own books. In case anyone needs some tips on drawing, i would say PRACTICE and IMPROVE. Practice obviously means draw a lot, and improve means don't be afraid to try new styles. Bigger eyes, different hair, etc.
