What is a pencil drawing called?

 I am not sure at the moment.  I used to draw every day, when I was younger, but as a kid I would draw everything I saw.  Now we have computer screens everywhere, and when I am drawing digitally the drawing isn’t static.  It moves, changes color, and I will make changes along the way as the image progresses.  Some people say that’s a good thing.   When my mom taught me in school I used to draw every day, and if I didn’t get it to hang well that day I would have to spend my time fixing it or replacing it to hang properly.  Now I just draw what I see or feel like with that drawing and it is usually pretty good. I am so thankful that after all this time I still can draw! So to answer the first question – I’m not sure.  It’s just a word.  I see my name on my book (which my mom bought for me a year ago) and the book has a drawing of me in it.  It was an old family photo (not dated yet) with me being the young girl with the ponytail.  A friend sent me a picture of me on my first day in college.  I think I have done that a few times, and I am always surprised how well it hang on the wall.  So I am sure I draw that too!
So to answer the second question – yes.  I do like to paint.  I’ve been working on that lately.  For the past 11 years I have been a painter.  I started painting 3 years ago but only recently did I decide I wanted to expand on it more.  I began as a painter who was interested in drawing and then I moved onto drawing and painting full time.  I can paint almost anything, but the first two years in my life I did do some other things.  But today I am a full-time painter and I will be continuing to do so.  My goal is to someday have my own house art studio.  In the meantime, I will continue to practice drawing full time and working on my art.  In the past, doing more than one thing was too much so I focused now, on my art.

Have you met people online that are drawing that do it professionally, or at some point in life or do something that is just out of your comfort zone
