    (This is my first real thread, I hope I didn't do something dumb)
    Heya, wanted to create a thread for once, and this question just popped into my mind.
    I was wondering: What do you really like the most about art, about drawing or writing, or creating in general.

    So, this might sound like a weird question right?
    I guess it could be re-formulated in another way, like: what motivates you the most to do art? What do you enjoy the most about it?

    Maybe it's like seeing what you're able to do from scratch?
    Or is it, I don't know, getting compliments on your art pieces?
    Maybe you just find it relaxing?
    Or maybe it's a mix of these things, I don't know, you tell me ^w^

    Personally, I would say that it's just seeing what I can do from literally nothing, starting with a blank canvas and ending up with a drawing, or writing a bunch of code lines to get a something working from scratch (even though it's technically not considered as art), I don't know, it just feels so congratulating to me

    I love many aspects of creating and sharing art. I like the creative freedom I have when I start a new piece, I like being able to zone out and relax while drawing, and I like seeing my skills improve over time. I also love interacting with other artists, so it's really a combination of these things.

    I love how relaxing it is! I totally zone out while drawing, and it helps me destress. Also how happy hand drawn gifts make people :)

    I always draw when I have free time, simply because I enjoy it. It's relaxing, and over time I slowly see myself improving. I look at my stuff from a couple of years ago and compare it to my stuff now, and I can really see how far I've come since then.

    My favorite part abaout art is that fact that it has so much diversity. No ones art is ever the same, so it's always nice to see a new type of art style (wether it's writing or drawing), and enjoy the broad views of other peoples perspectives.

    I like how everyone can try to make what they like and try to out their imagination on paper.

    Like heck, I’ve done that countless times with characters for RPs and stories.

    ive talked pretty in depth about art to someone once so ill just simplify why i like art most of the time: a mix of drawing the content i want to see, wanting to improve, and making friends through art!! i feel like ive achieved most of these things but its more fun to tell myself i havent so i keep drawing to hit those reasons!

    the whole "validation" thing is just an added bonus, haha. i never draw to validate or make someone happy, it just happens that my drawings make someone smile. i just like to draw because i like to draw!! its really the only thing i feel passionate about now so might as well eheh

    I don’t think I have a particular reason for why I like to draw. I just like it. I don’t draw very often but it feels nice when I am drawing because I feel focused and relaxed.

    Granted I've been in a bad mood surrounding the topic of my art, but I enjoy just creating something from nothing?? Like wow that didn't exist but now it does you should be proud of yourself

    Also it just relaxes me a fair bit. I usually end up drawing my best boys or my ocs on tests to help me focus (and i usually get notes from the teachers regarding the art like once i drew my oc on a french test and the teacher wrote "cute!" next to him which was the highlight of my day). This only works for traditional art because digital art is so fucking frustrating because technology sucks + the sound of pencil on paper is so therapeutic to me hhhhhhh

    I enjoy drawing because it's relaxing and I like being able to visualize how I see my favorite characters. And I enjoy writing because I always have a hard time voicing my own thoughts, but when I'm writing about another character, the words that I want to say just come to me.

    My favorite part about art is the creativity and experience that can come with it. You start off a newcomer, then grow higher and better in your form of art. I just love the experience and joy that can come with such a form. I would only understand this in writing, though, as art isn't exactly my best quality.
