While I have no background that qualifies me to judge art, I love your drawings. I hope you keep doing them and sharing them.

Thank you! That actually means a lot to me. I don't think I'd ever win any competitions, but I think I've finally learned being "good" at drawing and enjoying drawing are two different things. Knowing people enjoy them a bit makes it that more worthwhile.

Yes! I enjoy lots of things I'm not good at!

There's something about your style I really like. I think it's the comic influence.

I went back and badged your comment. Yesterday took a lot out of me and honestly, that compliment did alot to turn my mood around.

I love art from all over the place (even product packaging, believe it or not), but comics are definitely some of my favorite. It's amazing to see all the different ways people decide to draw things and the details they decide to focus on or leave out. I didn't know it showed in what I draw, But I'm glad it does. :)

I think it's what's left out that appeals to me in your art. Although things aren't straight in nature, the straight(ish) lines of things like the river or the sun appeal to me for reasons I can't describe. Maybe it's like a story. I've heard it said that a good author doesn't tell a reader what something is like, they show them. Maybe it's similar here for me. Showing too much would have been telling the viewer, and instead the minimalist aspects help show me.

Again I'm no professional art critic, but I genuinely enjoy seeing your drawings and these pieces especially.

Well, I'm hoping to do more like these ones very soon. Hopefully, both my drawing and story telling gets better.

Thank you. I hope you're having an awesome weekend.
