When I got into drawing I just drew for myself. Later on, about 2002/3 I found fanart central and found an artist named Sliver who inspired me and all that. Kept me drawing and I strove to draw like her.
Then I went off drawing for various years, hardly drawing anything at all.
These days my inspiration is SurrealKatie who is a great friend of mine. When we met she was a decent artist and I'd commission her a lot and I've watched her art go from good to amazing over the years and she's kept me striving for my own better art.
