My Inspiration by AmukaUroy My Inspiration by AmukaUroy
"You're the reason I even began expanding my world, It doesn't matter who can draw better..."

Project for Art Class, "WHY DID YOU EVER START DRAWING?" Man,my teaacher HATES my drawings, she can't stand anime drawings [she prefers realistic] and I still draw anime-ized, lolzlolz

Based on a true ;A;

This just makes me believe even more he's still my idol, no matter if he doesn't draw anymore...

I have a friend who is so much better at drawing than me...but she never brags about it. When I think about it, she always wants to see my drawings and really is interested. She was so happy when I drew her for her birthday and is always asking me to draw her or someone when know. She makes me feel like I'm the one that's talented, and yet her drawings are so good! But she only draws animals, and I rarely see her drawing...  She's awfully modest and no one even realizes it! She is such a wonderful person.:happycry: revamp

This happened to me, I stopped drawing for a good 4-5 years once the friend I taught to draw suddenly became so much better then me. Thankfully I picked it back up this year, and we're still good friends. :)

same thing happened to me with my older brother.
it was so painful....
but things have changed. Now I study art and design thanks to him.
we have taken different paths, but in my mind he is still the same.

(sorry for the bad english)

My art teacher don't like my drawings too! She always says things like: "yeah... but... it's not really realistic, I mean, it's not original. Can't you do something more different next time?" In that case, I just wanna say: "you frustrated failed artist!". Sometimes, that really piss me off X)

I understand why he reacted that way. I know how it feels. It's not because he's the second. It's because he haven't changed. When i teach someone something, and then some time later he get's a lot better than me, i get frustated. It's like everybody is going on with their lives, while i'm stuck in the same place. Damn It's so demotivating...That i don't teach to anybody what i know anymore...

this reminds me of me and my best friend only we made up storys about anime and games and evin "real life". but she started to feel convicted about it and not too long ago se told me she was didn't want to make up our storys anymore... gosh, i guess there's no use in crying about it now.....i guess...
nyamy Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011
This is really moving. It's sad how people give up when they see other people who are better than they... being surpassed it's also sad thought.
The last drawing the main guy did it's so cute, and the fact he couldn't show it to his friend is so sorrowful.
Sorry for my terrible english :c

i was inspired and introduced to anime by a girl in my chinese class and i basically ended up drawing all over my chinese books and so i blame that as why i can't speak any chinese. she still draws and is amazing, but it's hard to keep in contact with her now.

but i have another friend, who while talented and amazing at drawing no longer draws as much since she wants to pursue other things. i guess that's always understandable, but it's still a little sad. :(

i think it's great if you can always remember who inspires/inspired you, whether or not they still draw. :)

I had something so simillar with my bro... :hmm: Ah well afterwards you allwys have new rivals right XD
Skykittykat Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
Oh wow... I can't even begin to say how much this hits home with me. I swear I teared up a bit. I'm such a cry baby. Hah... I was inspired by my mom. I grew up watching her with her art. But she stopped after we moved when I was young. I guess it was mainly because the move made her unhappy. The place we'd lived in before was her own personal castle and when we'd moved it really affected her. I was really young but seeing her smiling while she drew always stuck with me and I started actively drawing during fifth grade when my friends started to get me interested in anime. I was really inspired by one, Bubbles.

When she showed us her drawings they seemed so amazing. Looking back now I know that it was traced but she really inspired Kalie and I (and our fierce friendly competitiveness) to draw more and try to be better. When we got to middle school and Kalie and I were drawing good (subjective) looking stuff with out tracing it seemed to make Bubbles upset. She stopped drawing, focused on hair, makeup and clothes and just general popularity. She stopped talking to Kalie and I which really hurt us.

Luckily we didn't let it come between us and Kalie and I are as close as sisters but I haven't talked to Bubbles for more than just a hello in the hallway in over four years or so now. So this comic really... touches me. I think a lot of artists have stories like that because there are a lot of people who feel the need to put said artists down for the simple feeling of knowing that they have worth in some way.

I'm super sorry for the rambling comment but I felt that you should know that such a great comic means a lot more to me than you'd expect. You are clearly a funny, bright, and very talented person. Don't let that person come between you and your gift and don't feel bad for wanting to improve yourself. I personally think it's a great aspect to have and I hope you continue to reach for higher goals.
Silvahsnoweh Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
This might be me and my friend in a couple years. Her inspiration to get better is largely based on me looking like a totally wolf dog kitty drawing noob whore. :,( Even though she's good herself...

Wow, this is so sad....reminds me of my childhood.

When I was 7 or 8 years old, I had this person that always inspired me with her amazing I started drawing. I stopped when she saw some of my papers and said "Your drawing sucks" ....It really hurted me.

So I stopped drawing until I moved. I met this really cool girl who drew so amazing at school, and I admired her so much! I am really shy, and it was hard to me to talk to her,but after a while we became buddies and friends. She supports me a lot :D And since then I started drawing...and I guess I really improved because of her :D She has a Deviantart account here, and she is the reason I am in Deviantart :DU. beautiful and so sad D: Goes to my favorites!!

I always lie to my friends that my brother inspired me to draw.. It was really by a boy I like. He drew this amazing picture of link in anime style.. It was beautiful. I already was drawing animals at the time, but just seeing his one picture inspired be to draw humans..
He inspired me years ago. I secretly like him a lot, but he never sees it. I always say hi, but I keep waiting for a what's up, but it never comes. But, thats fine with me, he made me wanna draw for the rest of me life.

D: Thats really sad
wolfsword515 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
Doesn't matter, really. He made me want to draw people, when before I sucked, I can easily re-draw something from fire emblem, which is realistic and anime like at the same time. Because of him, I revolved my life around drawing.. I'd die if I cant draw, because I like him as much as I like my drawings.

I never tell my friends I like him, since I'm so emotionless towards almost everything else but drawing, fire emblem, nintendo and my kitten.

AmukaUroy Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011  Student Traditional Artist

Vampire-Pheonix Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011

.. this story is so touching. Every time I go back to look at it, man. Every time.

It's about how much fun you have, not about who has the better art. A really beautiful message.
