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 know how you feel there! I hate when people do this to me!
My friends don't seem to mind if I watch them drawing. I have ZERO drawing abilities so all drawings look amazing and professional. But I can see why some like to keep their art or writings to themselves.

I really hate it when you just started drawing something and someone asks you what your drawing and you tell them and their like " it doesn't look like that to me" it's very annoying especially when your nowhere near being finished yet >.<

This is so me. Wink/Razz 

I'm a very shy girl and whenever someone looks at me drawing I start to blush and try to cover my sketchbook lol. 
Very cute drawing though!! Neko Girl-13 (Fangirling Sparkles) [V1]

One time I was drawing in class(I'm the only artist there. That can draw something worth seeing to my classmates) and next thing I know everyone's crowding around me. >:(  i was like "stay the fuck away from me" XD lol not really, but yeah I mind.

I agree. Writing or drawing, I dislike when others peer over at my work. It tends to be a window to your mind and soul - forcing you defenseless and bare to peering eyes.
