"Draw for fun, not for fame. Only draw because you like it, because you want to do it and because you want to improve. No one else's opinion should really matter when it comes to why/how you draw."
Even though you may think your art isn't good, others do. If others tell you your art is bad, ignore them, and keep on drawing until you reach a level you're happy with. Don't draw for fame or popularity, draw because it's fun and it's what you like to do! And remember that "Professionals are the amateurs who never gave up!"
If you or someone you know is feeling depressed and / or suicidal, please know that you are not alone. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Trust me, I've been there. You are amazing, beautiful and perfect just the way you are. You can come and talk to me at any time, either by comment on my profile, or via note.
And please, if you're feeling really down, talk to someone you know IRL. There are plenty of people who will listen. Stay strong.

And remember... YOU ARE LOVED!!!
Here is your sign!
When did you join DA?
I originally joined in the December of 2011. I made this account in December 2013. (Friday 13th, to be precise!)
When did you start drawing?
I've been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I only started taking it seriously in 2013. I started doing digital art in 2015.
Where did you learn to draw?
I am entirely self-taught, with the exception of Mark Crilley's YouTube tutorials and from various How-To-Draw-Manga books. I was always told by my art teachers that anime and cartoons are not art, and I'll get nowhere with it, but I sure proved them wrong!
Who are your inspirations?
My first inspiration to draw in the manga style was the anime "Tokyo Mew Mew". I always thought that the characters were really cute and well-drawn, and I was like "wow, I'd love to be able to draw like this!"
My main inspiration though was a YouTube artist called Mark Crilley. He would upload how to draw such and such every week, both real time and time lapse. People have often told me that they can tell that my style was originally inspired by his art (which is very true!) He taught me most of what I know about drawing in the manga / anime style.
Do you take commissions?
Yes, you can find all the info you need in my journals section!
If in doubt, just note me, and we can negotiate something.
How about requests?
Yes, but very rarely. I find them good for practicing if you are experiencing art block.
But I don't always have the time, plus I'm very forgetful. If I like your character's design, though, I may consider drawing them.
What are your tools of the trade?
For sketching I use a Staedtler Mars Micro 0.5mm mechanical pencil. I use a black eraser and mechanical pencil refills. For my photography, I use a Canon EOS 1300D.
For digital art I use a Wacom Intuos Draw with Paint.NET and Paint Tool SAI.
I've got moar questions!
That's technically not a question, but I shall cover it all in a full FAQ soon.

Eve | 22 | F | Pansexual | Taken
Hi there, I'm TreePencil (don't ask where my questionable username came from, it's totally random, hehe!) but you can just call me Eve. It's nice to meet you! I'm just your average pansexual 22 year old, self-taught artist, who loves to draw! I also have Asperger's syndrome. I currently reside in Ireland.
I love making new friends and watching people whose art I like! Please feel free to have a chat with me while you're stopping by, I am always online, and I always try and answer every message I get! I'm definitely not as unapproachable as you may think, but as intimidating as I am, I don't bite... much!
Seriously though, all joking aside, if you ever need somebody to talk to about anything at all, you can always come and talk to me and I'll help however I can! I always reply, even if it takes a while! If you like, you can leave a comment on my profile or send me a private note. I'm here for you!
❤ 03/12/2014 ❤
On this day, I was taken the love of my life, my sweet baka, TheArtFrog.
I love you so much, more than is humanly possible. Before I met you, my life had no meaning. You make life worth living. My heart beats entirely for you. You are the most perfect and beautiful person I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. You are my soulmate and I can't even begin to express how much you mean to me!
I'd like to offer you something...a hug!
You deserve it! Forget all those chain mails that say you need (insert number of hugs) to be truly loved, all you need is ONE person to show their appreciation for you to know that you are beautiful and of amazing worth! I just wanted you to know that no matter what, you are important, you deserve a smile on your face, and happiness in your heart.
This message was brought to you by TreePencil, just a random friend who truly cares!
Have a splendid day / night wherever you are!
Thank you all so much in advance for the favorites, comments, llamas, watches, features, points and gifts! Your support means the world to me!
I always try to respond to every single comment, reply and note that I get! If I don't, I will try to do so ASAP! Please be patient! You can leave a comment or send a note at any time, I never log out!
Thanks for visiting, it is much appreciated and I hope you have a good day! If you're not having a good day, it's okay, it will get better!
Oh, and just so you know... yes, you may thank me for stuff on my profile! I don't find it annoying at all! I actually like the fact that people acknowledge that I've done something for them and that they are grateful! Please just keep in mind that if I gave you something like a llama, favourite, watch, gift and so on, it means that I think you deserve it and you are very welcome!
