I'm new here. I used to draw on a fairly regular basis, but my grandmother once barged in on me when I was tidying up my "drawings" binder and she criticized my art.
I was pretty young at the time, and it broke my heart. I stopped drawing mainly because of this incident.
I had reached a lower-intermediate level. I like to draw mangas and monsters/animals.
Since I took a really long break from drawing—I haven't drawn in about 8 years—I can't draw characters anymore.
That's why I mainly focus on animals and monsters now. Using step-by-step guides is a lot of fun, and at least I'm usually not disappointed by the final "product" since I'm copying something anyway.
