I wanted to title this "favourite things to draw" and drop it in the 2D/3D art forum, but I realized that people probably have similar sentiments about other arts and I'd love to hear about those as well. :dive:

So! What are everyone's favourite things to create? Any particular themes, subjects, features, tropes, discovered that I have a strange love for drawing tears (despite also primarily creating works focused on escapism and "kinder realities", as I like to call them :grin:smile: this year. There's something very fun about actually rendering them for whatever reason.

I tend to default to drawing vaguely girl-shaped beings with cute frilly dresses and fluffy hair when i dont know what else to draw. Maybe add a pair of horns or other weird vaguely monster-like feature and BAM! instant nightbug comfort zone character design
As for themes...I like making things involving people who've drifted apart getting back together again, for old times sake. There's something weirdly beautiful about a group of people who have gone their own ways coming back together as a group, even if its for one last time. :4u:

Whenever I try out new art programs or tools, one of my favorite things to draw is a still life of apples. For some reason, the multi-colored varieties offer a good mix of colors that I can play around with to get the feel for new tools.

Personally my favorite things to draw right now are very blocky and angley people like https://preview.redd.it/yyt1frx0kos91.png?auto=webp&s=219cd8124d27741eab04b4d9ffdb2745ab7cc8d7this persons art. I also love writing the buddy cop trope and I'm working on a buddy cop cyberpunk style story.

I like drawing characters and/or creatures in a cartoony style with lots of sharp edges and angles. I'll often do either either my own designs or stylized fanart of things I like.

i really like to make 3d landscapes that just have grass in a filed, and funky lighting on weird abstract models like messing around with blender lighting is really fun

OOOO i love to draw people!! which is maybe the lamest answer ever (<- i am half-joking bc it is totally expected), but like. i like sooo many aspects of it. i love to stylize and meddle with body types and body features till i finally figure out the tenth way to draw myself and i love drawing strange hands with their nails bitten and i love drawing stretch marks and hairy arms and veins and arteries and acne and moles and a billion other things. i think there's something awesome about being human :dive:

Lately I've been having a lot of fun drawing clothes! Especially shoes!!! :ha:

I think for the longest time I was just worried about making attractive faces/hands and didn't pay much attention to how I drew clothing. Nowadays though I'm trying to use more reference when I draw, and it's made me pay a lot more attention to the shape of shoes. I've drawn some fun heels recently, and now I'm working on a drawing involving some cute chunky sneakers. I've been interested in curating my current wardrobe and getting nicer pieces, so I suppose that's been carrying over into my work!

+1 to drawing clothes!
I especially love designing entire outfits for my characters, it's so much fun thinking about what kind of clothes suit their personalities and the worlds they live in~

I love to make Saturn/PS1/N64 style 3D models. Extremely, low-poly with compressed textures. I also like to grab existing ones others have made and try and make their polycounts even lower.

I've participated in several retro game jams doing this, and I always enjoy it!

I notice that a lot of the stuff I draw falls into one of two categories: futuristic anthro animals with very elaborate outfits (one of which is my avatar here!) or mechanical animals. Typically, a lot of blues are used, but there's a few exceptions.

So you know how, like, there's this certain genre of artists (especially in anime fandoms) that draw very feminine men, to the point where an unprepared viewer mistakes them for women? (Said with the outmost recpect for the said artists, of course).

Well, I'm the polar opposite of that. Ungirly women from tomboys to butches to general body types considered 'masculine' by the wider media. That's been my jam, like, since ever I started drawing. Back then everyone (including me) just thought that I lack skills to draw 'proper' women. Now I have skills and I still do it on purpose  :cool:

As far as themes go I have two modes - it's either fluffy fluff peace and love on planet Earth, or physical violence, apparently. Both in drawing and in writing - I remember comparing my fanfics throughout years and apparently each piece of my writing contains at least some punching... and more often than not a scene of overcoming pain or exhaustion (or a concussion, or a blood loss, or--) like it's some shonen anime. You know the vibe!

(Now, clothes with complicated designs and/or a lot of details and ornaments, however, are my kriptonite. I am in polite awe of any and all of you who do those things well.)
