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:

This is so me! I don't like when people watch me draw, not because, I think I'm bad but more of because me art is kinda of like a diary in a way.

I only allow a select few people to watch me draw. And only if I'm not drawing anything particularly personal. Other artists are fine, random people are not. 
"What is that supposed to be?"
"I don't know."
"What do you mean you don't know? You're drawing it!"
"I mean I don't know."


"Interesting choice of writing implement."
"Mind my asking what it is you're drawing? Or do you know yet?"
"I don't know."
"Okay. I don't often know what I'm drawing until it's done either."
