When doing art, I tend to stick with quick pencil sketches, although recently I have started getting more into digital painting, as I own a cheap intous tablet. I really want to get better at it because of all the freedom the digital medium brings, but I have also read that you should paint traditionally in order to understand texture and color-mixing and such. I am starting to feel limited and kind of bored by graphite, so I think some new stuff will boost my motivation and inspiration quite a bit!
Besides art, I also do some graphic design, such as motion graphics and simple logo or app designs for minor companies. Last year I also got my very first DSLR camera, which I have been obsessed with, also learning tons of different editing techniques. I have also begun doing som client work with portraits as an extra source of income. Later in life I really want to do one or several of the above professionally.

I have from time to time been struggling with the thought that I should be specialising in one niche and get really good at it, but having all these interest I can't really choose between them. It is often stressing me out, but then I tend to conclude with the fact that I have all these hobbies to be creative and express myself. I should just be doing whatever makes me happy, and since I am still relatively young, I still have a lot of time to choose a tighter path to walk down.
I also want to use this opportunity to thank you for all the effort you have put into this site, and I am really excited about starting to draw from the new tools! They have been of so much help lately, and if you want to check out my deviantArt, I have been posting drawings from a thirty day hand practice challenge:http://larissaschoeler.deviantart.com/gallery/
