    People, animal characters, especially Zebra. I tend to put them in humorous situations...they talk for me too.

    Faces with a third eye an hands I’m trying to draw full bodies lately but I always get stuck on how to pose it. I think to much about it

    I tend to gravitate towards still life and buildings. Tried my hand at portraits but it isn't my thing..

    Aside from lettering, I tend to gravitate toward doodly explosions of patterns and flowers

    @Nobrega18 I can totally see that from your recent submissions. Great work too!

    @bookboozer I think it just takes practice. I've seen progress of other people's work where they show what a portrait looked like across different years and the difference is noticeable.

    I have been drawing a lot of still life, but I’m trying to do more portraits. I’d also like to learn how to sketch on location better vs. sketching from reference photos. I’ve always admired urban sketchers who can capture a scene quickly wherever they are.

    @Darlene That's so interesting that there is a particular animal, above all others, that get's more of your attention. I wonder if that's the same for most people.

    @DarrenHester You mean like sitting down at a cafe and drawing what is in front of you? If so, what do you think makes that a bit more difficult?

    @super-starling I'm curious about you - what subject matter do you gravitate towards?

    Women, Flowers and fantasy, surreal scenes. I think I am strongly influenced by the stories that were read to me in my childhood and the ones that I began reading, the cartoons and movies that were my favourites.
