ppl usually ask that cos they mean to ask "did you draw that from your mind". people could still kinda copy pics, or trace them.

Depends. In school, the art teacher always comes by and points out a mistake when Im like... 95 percent done, it makes me want to throw the stool inn OMGFURRYYYANGEERRRRRR at the table and flail about like Pissed!Edward Elric.

But yeah, I've gotten used to it. I draw on the train a fair bit and notice a person beside me looking in awe that I drew a figure so quickly. Haha, its priceless. One guy said that his friends are absolutely mad about anime =D

I hate it XD Almost every time someone watches me draw, they are criticizing everything I do, such as "um, she doesn't have hands" XD Then they proceed to ask who it is, what they're doing, why I'm drawing this person... it's too difficult to put up with ^^;

But I feel comfortable if they're complimenting me while I draw, that's ok. xDDD

No. T__T People ask me too many questions and always assume that I have no imagination and that everything I make I'm either tracing or is from TV. D;
Either that, or they get TOO CLOSE, and deprive me of elbow/wrist room D<

I don't mind it if I'm drawing with one of my friends like silly things or something in art classes. But I feel under pressure if a lot of people watch me draw or if I draw infront of really awesome artists xD;

I used to when I started, but I do get uncomfortable when people look over your shoulder when you draw. The fact that I have a tablet now and I draw at home, no one looks over my shoulder. They don't care...

definitely not... especially when i draw in a place with others around... and they like crowed around... and it makes me
a) very self conscious
b) a little claustrophobic
c) unable to concentrate.

I don't know why, but when people watch me draw I get very self-conscious and find that I can't do it. I have no problem showing my friends and family finished pictures, but when it comes to 'works in progress' its impossible.

It depends on the mood i'm in, the sentimental reasons behind the drawing, and who's watching. I usually only let good friends or family watch. Otherwise i get syand just start doodling or i put it away.

I've gotten used to kids in my classes looking over my shoulder while I'm drawing. It's no longer awkward for me. But sometimes it is so I chose other.

I-It scares me ;_; Probably cuz I have low self-confidence but I feel like people are mentally bashing my drawing or they are expecting something super pro OTL
