Ditto. I never knew reading about people and their fish could be so interesting. But I can see how it becomes a full blown obsession. I started out with a 2.5 gallon aquarium, and now I'm looking into a community tank.
I kind of view it the same way. Something sleek and elagant about boats, etc. I've only ever tried drawing a person once, in art class in HS. I wasn't too good. Bout the only thing I'm half way okay at is drawing horses.
I don't know but if you think about it the way i do, things like buildings and sailboats, cars.. ect. all have these beautiful well defined lines. Thats why I like drawing people. trying to capture light and shadow and lines is interesting.
The mechanical pencils are the best. No sharpening. Lol. My fave thing to sketch at the moment are sailboats. No idea why. Have this awesome bkground on my laptop of a wrecked boat and thought it'd be cool to draw.
So your a sketcher/painter too? the weirdest thing I have ever painted was my fuse box in my house. It was right in the kitchen and I wanted to cover it so it now looks like a picture with frame and all. I mainly sketch people though. Portraits
