@Aspirant_Fool@yakkoTDI It took me until only a few years ago to figure out what it was actually called, despite seeing it literally everywhere as a kid. I still don’t know where it originally came from.
Dog? Cat? Super hero? Look, if I drew an oval with four vertical lines going down, it was an animal. If the oval had two vertical lines going down and two horizontal lines sticking out, it was a person.
Any kind of futuristic flying thing. I loved drawing the Space 1999 ships. And jets, sleek and fast, like F16 Falcon. And low, fast sports cars that could really fly, like the Ferrari F1. Any wonder why I am an engineer today?
Those little houses you’d make, the kind where you don’t lift the pencil off of the paper. A face out of the number 5. A bunch of lines going one way, then another bunch of lines at a different angle off of those lines and just keep going until I filled the area with all of these lines.
Yanno, I think maybe what I did would be considered doodling, not drawing.
I was pretty basic – horses were my go to. In my defense, I lived in an area surrounded by horse farms and Sea Biscuit was a local hero. I had no idea at the time that millions of other little girls were also drawing horses. What is up with that?!
Airplanes, space-age Moon/Mars habitats, some portraiture (from photos).
My friend & I did some cartooning - a series of strips based on Evel Knievel with every one ending in a different spectacular crash.
