Yesterday I was having this conversation with a friend, about why we like the thing we like and draw the things we draw.
For me... I just don't know. They make me feel good, that's all!
As for me, I've realized I have a thing for medical stuff
. Since I was a little kid and planned fanfiction in my head, there was always a character ill or a doctor somewhere. And 99% of my OC are doctors or nurses!
It's not that I won't take that stuff seriously in real life, of course. Is just- a recurrent theme. I just say this because some people may find I don't take it seriously and use it just for morbid fascination? but it's not my intention at all
I suppose everytime one features stuff which may me morbid in fanart gets exposed to judgement lol.
I also enjoy a lot nightmares
and that sort of psychological
stuff. Well to summarize I may have a thing for horror!
Somebody could complain my stories all look the same (it happened to me once and somehow it was painful?) but- fanart is what I do in my free time, just for pure fun. The day I do things for what others say, I'll stop being myself.
Maybe I should stop wondering about things and just- enjoy them
What about you? Do you have recurrent themes, or things you find fun to draw and enjoy a lot?
