As some of you may have noticed, I am a very self-motivated person.
If I want to draw a comic, I usually don't stop until I'm done, or if I have to do homework, I go back to the comic.
Key word here: Self-Motivated.
When somebody orders me to do anything (and I mean ANYTHING), I will writhe and squirm in pain, and be very unmotivated to do it.
In other situations, especially in art class, I will have a bazillion ideas to do, but when I no choice in what to draw, I really don't want to do it.
But, when I am given total freedom for a school project, I find myself at a loss of what to do.
Sometimes I can't get an idea, other times I have way too many ideas and none of them seem good enough.
I can't win.
It's no wonder I do so badly in school.

I think this is my main problem with requests and whatnot.
Seriously, when you just tell me "draw this for me! :D" then I lose all motivation.
ALL of it.
It's not that I don't get ideas from some of you guys--in fact, some of you guys have great ideas! :)
But, unlike schoolwork (which if I fail, then I fail the entire course), you guys can't really force me to do anything for you.

By the way, the art teacher I depict here really was like that.
Well, not this direct, but he never gave us any choice in what we were to draw.
It was always what he wanted us to draw.
Where's the fun in that?

In the first frame, those are all characters I think about often.
Well, okay, not all of them, but quite a few of them I do.
And while some of them have never had DA cameos, there are a few that I have been shown before.

But, not in deviations that anyone pays attention to.
