Don't watch me draw... by DestinyBlue Don't watch me draw... by DestinyBlue
She clutches her sketchbook to her chest as she sees you peering over. "S-sorry, I just wanted to see what you were drawing" you stammer as she frowns. "You might see more than you bargained for if you go staring at peoples thoughts" pouts the girl.

I bet you can imagine what inspired this! ;) I reaaallly dislike when someone stares or leans over me to see what I'm drawing; you would never dream of doing that if someone was writing their diary!

Took a lot longer than expected, and I'm happy with some bits but really dissatisfied with others.. heh, isn't it always like that though? :).

Feeling a bit rough today, so I won't elaborate other than to say hope everyone's content and the weather is treating you well! :O

Would be interested to know how you feel when people watch you draw. Do you mind it? Any stories to tell..? :)
Update: Thanks so much for sharing your stories everyone, nice to know I'm not alone in not enjoying being watched XD Appreciate your critiques as well, I plan on improving this piece in the future :hug:

I feel bad now- I learned to draw from watching people draw and the people I learned from the best were those who poured their heart and soul into their art.

Well generally I'm rather uncomfortable with people watching me draw, and try to leave the room or something while they're looking through my sketchbook.. though that's not usually possible so I deal lol. My parents will lean over my sometimes and I kind of tense up and resist the urge to hug my book if you understand lol.

I think the worst for me is when they flip through without permission. It's my personal sketchbook, not a portfolio or art gallery. I wanted to show you the ONE sketch, why does that automatically make ALL my drawings your business?!

Exactly! At least everyone has asked my permission first so far so that's nice.

Lol I always found it adorable when my best friend would shy away her book/page from me when I looked over while we drew. I personally don't mind people watching me draw, but I can understand why other people would  :P
