What do you draw/paint?

Welcome.
Human figure mostly, since my school is art oriented we actually have a model. When I'm drawing by myself at home I generally start out with a face or body and then just add surreal features to it for no particular reason (well, conscious at least.).I also enjoy drawing the people around me, usually friends and family, while they are totally unaware of me drawing them. (Otherwise they pose, and you end up preserving fake smile rather than the moment itself, and their character.)

The appeal is much less about the final result, but the fact that every choice you make is entirely impulsive and based on feeling, not thinking. (at least from I understand of them- I haven't researched the MBTI traits anymore than a couple of summary paragraphs included in online personality quizzes. ) I think this is why it's good for the INTP- it can act as a mental break from the constant, hyper-focused state of analyzing and thinking through every decision one makes and second guessing yourself.

Salut!

J'espere que vous aimez notre maison

Strange, I could have sworn I recall viewing English posts by you whilst lurking. I think this is a test.
Je vous remercie.

Spinach.



Now that we've settled that... Welcome. Feel free to ask questions, have an existential crisis or three, read, learn, think, dance with the native livestock, etc.

It's nice to meet an INTP my age (I am also a Junior of 16 years) and I share your interests in figure (drawing, not painting; I loathe painting) debating myself, pacing, and pointing out flaws in teachers' questions. However, my studies focus on science, I've been out of art and music since eighth grade, and I hope to avoid taking humanities classes in the future. Have fun here! :)
