Ask Caroline

So I went to my friend's house recently. BTW, my friend is nuts about Sailor Moon and Pokémon.    Anyways, whenever we meet up my friend always asks me, "Where did you learn to draw like that?" Yes, I've been asked a lot of times before. A LOT. In my homeroom. At my house. On the internet. On my bus. At basketball camp. At-- well, I think you get it.
    Another question I've been asked a lot is, "Why do you hate gum?" I've heard this one many a time, also. My mom asks me literally every day. Most recently Aedan asked me this.
    Oh, here's a good one: "Don't you realize that your singing voice is horrible?" Yeah, that comes up once in a while. Thank you very much, Eric.
    These are all FAQ, or Frequently Asked Questions. Since I have nothing else to post about, I am going to answer all of these.

1. Where did you learn to draw like that?
    Whenever somebody asks me this, I usually say, "the internet." If truth be told, I learn from a lot of different sources. After watching 52 episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender, 107 episodes of Inuyasha, reading 2 volumes of Sorcerers & Secretaries, and staring intently at my friend's Ranma 1/2 poster for ten full minutes, I was finally able to draw Kikyō from Inuyasha, freehand. After that I learned a lot from other places, like I would try to copy pictures from manga I was reading, or examine someone else's artwork. That "critical eye" technique helps a lot, too, and also this website Manga University.
    Some of my blog viewers might be aware that I'm also taking an art class. Learning from different sources helps you develop your own style, I guess.

2. Why do you hate gum?
    Gum is really disgusting. My mom chews it all the time, and she sticks it in the most disgusting places. On her sunglasses, under the table, on my breakfast plate... one time she even stuck it on to my Rubix cube! I'm never touching that thing again!! Plus, I don't like the smell. Two pairs of my shoes have been ruined in the past by this substance, and people on the bus keep sticking theirs in my hair. Speaking of the bus, a kid I know on it does this really disgusting thing with his gum... *shudder*
    Point is, gum is the worst! That's why I don't like that girl from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

3. Don't you realize your songing voice is horrible?
    What are you talking about? My singing voice is melodious.

And, I believe that's it. In a few days this blog will have existed for a year.
