Some people are born with "talent"; I earned my skills with practice. Decades of drawing under my belt; I draw in ink because it is a reflection of life (there are no take-backs only do overs, so you better be "sure"). It took me a long time to find the faith that I was ready to go "pro"; however, my skills in illustration are "the bomb" because I draw for hours and hours. Some people love hanging out with people; some people love animals; some people love watching TV; I LOVE PUTTING ON MY HEADPHONES , LISTENING TO GERMAN MUSIC AND DRAWING TIL MY EYES FEEL LIKE THEY WILL BLEED. LOL. Yes, I'm passionate; I "use my emotions": hurt; happy; joyful; sad; frustrated; etc.. and put it into my artwork. For myself, the more extreme I feel - the faster the work goes, and I do love my work. I am willing to do anything to be the best artist the world has ever seen til now. It is not enough to be good; I choose to be great.
