Somewhere between active and perpetual - I'm always thinking about either my stories or ideas to draw, or it feels like I'm always thinking about it. I tend to mostly just doodle and sketch during the week and do more involved, finished pieces on the weekends when I have time and my girlfriend's there to encourage me and throw ideas and crit.

Somewhere between the third and fourth option.

Though I must say that even with getting halfway to grasping the flow of the gesture, my lines end up being wobbly, regardless of how I handle my pencil (or whatever drawing tool I use). It's also interfering with my ability to grasp the proportions (just to further establish some context, I'm attempting to "learn the rules before breaking them" so to speak) of the figure, among other things (perspective, composition, stylization, you name it). It bugs me because I feel like I'm slipping through the cracks without leaving a mark, particularly a good one in the form of an "actual" drawing.

Well, in my school I´m in the art specialization, so, I should be doing what I was born to do, but for some reason I sometimes don´t like it because when it comes to art, I definitely hate other people telling me what to do. Not like the teacher has a regimen or stuff, I understand she has to teach us all the techniques, but I don´t like to be told what kind of art to do. I mean, for me, it has much more pros than cons, but cons still exist.

It's not as much fun to do the art other people tell you to do xD

I can't stop - even if I'm not posting I'm piling up papers somewhere full of messy scribbles.  I've never been able to stop, and when I'm forced to stop (work, being too exhausted every day) I get amazingly depressed.

Like, my brain is more fast and active than my hands can be, so I often dream up random scenarios and designs and stuff and save it to my head's memoery drive.
