How Art Became My Hobby: Growing Up with Anime

11:26 AM

Salam and hello!

I always talked about beauty and makeup related stuffs, and rarely my hobbies. Just so you know, I didn't have the love for beauty things until I was 19. Lol. Before that I was all about art and Japanese anime.

What is anime?

Anime, according to Wikipedia, is a Japanese animated production that usually features hand-drawn or computer animation. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of "animation" in Japanese, where this term references all animation.

Ever since I was very young, I am already exposed to this side of culture. My first anime?

Hey, it's still considered anime okay :p I also had collected the comics before, but they were torned up so bad all thanks to the termites and us moving away that time so it couldn't be salvaged~
But what actually triggered me to start drawing? As soon as a friend of mine introduced me to the art of exercise book comic (I think I still have them ;P), I was exposed to this anime cult haha:

As do all kids my age during that time. Hahaha. Starting from that point, I fell in love with anime for good. During the early days my drawings were so crappy but I was burning with passion I didn't even care. You could check out some of them that I had compiled here long time ago:

You can click on the photo if you want to see it closer, it's rather a large file :) This was my progress back from 2001 up to 2008. Looking back now they were very ugly haha, although I used to think they were so lovely when I first drew them~

As for my art influence, I was heavily influenced by these following anime~

Yuu Watase's famous anime aired - Fushigi Yuugi (top) and Ayashi no Ceres (bottom)

And up til now I still could not draw guys as hot as these! Ugh :(

I remember wanting to venture into art programme in university after graduating from high school~ but family was against it and I further studied into engineering (of which I did not complete and I got into work field instead). So it ended up as just a hobby haha. Even so I am still grateful as drawing is like a medium for me to pour my imagination out~

Ah, and because of that, I started to draw less and less since 2008 as I was busy with other studies and then work >___< but I do draw once in awhile~ if I really have time. Lol I am not sure if I could make it again for my work to get published in time to be sold in Comic Fiesta 2014~Also, don't expect me to be totally updated with new anime, I am outdated XD

Feeling kind of rusty~ That said, I will end my post a little sketch of mine :)
