Iv started drawing around 3 years now but that was for my own enjoyment, creating characters and drawing whatever i was interested in at the time. Though i an now just starting to put stuff out mainly to further my skill and to freshen things up.

I used to draw just for myself. At one time it's all I did, but drawing was just a hobby for me. Now it's one of the most boring things I can think of doing with whatever free time I have.

90% of my art yalls will never see because it looks horrendous. I basically have an idea, start drawing it and keep drawing and redrawing until I think it looks right for publication

L'art pour l'art. While I do upload my stuff I don't do commissions or trades or anything, Requests only if the requestee is a close friend or the idea tickles my artistic fancy.

Other than that all the three novels I'm currently working on are more or less just for me (or for a friend)

Do literary works count? I make up stories for myself all the time, even though I usually don't write them down. Sometimes they're a bit too personal to share, sometimes they'd only be interesting to me.

I did try to write a short story about a character without ever referring to him directly, which was a pretty fun little challenge. But obviously because it's quite difficult to make a compelling narrative with that restriction it's just been sitting on my hard drive for a while. Too short to be interesting.

Any art counts :3

I didn't expect to be in the minority on this one, there's a lot more concealed art around here, apparently

The things I don't post are works that I didn't finish or lost interest in. Some of them might still get completed later, others not.

So yes, they're posted for people to look at, but whether anyone actually does is another matter entirely. :)

Back when I used to draw, yes, most of it was not meant to be seen by anyone and I didn't show. The only time people saw my stuff was on accident or, in my mom's case, she found some I had thrown away and wouldn't let me. :v Occasionally I have drawn art for other people, but I put WAY too much effort into it so what would take a real artist like 10 minutes to do I end up spending 12+ hours on and still not being satisfied with it. I prefer to just buy art.

A good portion of it is. My energy can be spread pretty thin juggling other responsibilities, and I don't usually share work that I consider half-assed, but I still like to draw.

A vast majority of the art I make I never share with anyone. Not because it's lewd or bad or anything, I just started drawing art in general with the mindset that I was doing it for myself and myself alone.

It's fine. Honestly, art -good or bad- inspires. And posting it shows progress, which I find helps others out by seeing someone else's struggle. It keeps them going.

For me, i have a ton of photos I don't share for whatever reason. But i share good and bad equally. If it goes up and no one likes it, i still like it. I've only taken down if the photos clearly belong somewjere else or just don't fit a narrartive I want to convey.

My anatomy practice is private. Practicing anatomy helps me get better at my normal art, but it's not something I think I would be comfortable sharing, even in nsfw spaces.

I technically put a lot of my art online but literally no one really looks at it or interacts with it so its basically just for my enjoyment. I also will create art that doesn't get posted online as well. Honestly I mostly use the internet as a way to store my art digitally and if someone else gets to see it and enjoy it then thats an extra bonus.

Everything I finish gets uploaded. But, you could say tongue-in-cheek that it makes no difference, as very few people see my art anyway.
