I became interested in art around my teenage years, but of course, I did plenty of drawing as a kid and stuff.

I basically got into 3D by accident. I was looking for game engine stuff to make a shooter game of my own, and stumbled onto Blender. I realised this was the perfect tool for making the stuff in my head come alive, and started learning.
I lack the ability to reduce a complex shape to its suggestive contours, so I had to wait until I could get a program to do the shading and contours for me before I could start to make art. 3D also suits my meticulous style and bottom-up (components-first) approach to making things.

Plus, cel-shading == ownjoo :P

I can't remember when I first started drawing; but from the stories my mom tells me about having parent-teacher conferences in kindergarden because of my drawings, you REALLY don't wanna know how I started off.

Anyway, I think it's important to enjoy your work, and I enjoy drawing, so...I'd have to say I've wanted to be an artist longer than I can remember...but my parents probably remember very well... ^^;

Colouring on the walls does that count? BTW, my mom gave me a prismacolor box to make lots of drawings since... Dunno, since I have memory

It began as something that I first saw when I was young and then capturing it onto paper (or in this case..the wall of my room) :p

Believe it or not, the first thing I drew was a chicken. My grandfather used to raise a small farm when we were little.

I've seriously been drawing stuff since before I can remember... I won a drawing comp when I was in prep, and one of the oldest memories I have is of me and my mum in front of the tv drawing a red horse ^_^
I got into anime which is the main thing I do now in Jan 2003, and anthro just recently :D

Awesome, I got into anime by that date too (November 2002 I think) :)

I started drawing very early, documented pictures are still around, I was 3 when I drew them. I started sewing when I was about..11 I'd say? Lots of crafty things there, around that age. This year I started sculpting...and next I hope to get into photography, if I can get a good camera that is.

I got into watercolors in 1995(maybe 96) when Chrono Trigger came out. Akira Toriyama's art boggled me..I had to find out what medium he used, and it very much looked like watercolor, so I tried it on for size. I love watercolors. :D Acrylic painting was started waaay back when..I used to paint t-shirts for friends. Haven't tried oils yet.. CGing was started in 95 with an ollld computer.

I'm trying to get into alot of forms of art incase that's not noticable. ;P
