COMIC MAKING EVOLUTION -AGES 8-25

This is another back-up from Inkblazers. This was my first blog entry, which was previously entitled as: "Where you born to draw comics?" (I think it sounded a bit condescending, my apologies for that...)
----------

The other day my sister found a big box filled with notebooks from our early school days, and I had totally forgotten about my old habit of filling my notebooks with stories. I don't remember where I got the idea to draw comics, but I found a ton of comics I drew since I was 7 or 8 years old. Naturally, they were silly and a rip-off of various mexican soap-operas and series I watched as a little girl. I found one called "The Universe Warriors" that was a Sailor Moon rip-off, and a lot of love stories about girls in High School, even though I was barely 10. Even older notebooks from when I was 5 or 6 years old clearly show that I enjoyed drawing since I learnt how to hold a pencil. It really struck me and I realized I haven't changed at all. I'm still drawing stories about High School girls at 25, and I don't think I will ever change. Are you guys the same? 

Sometimes I think drawing comics won't take me anywhere, but it is truly what I enjoy the most in the world. Even as a working adult I manage to find the time to draw and write, and come up with new stories and new ideas all the time. It's as if I was born to draw comics somehow, and it makes me feel strange... Strange in a good and a bad way! In a good way, because it is really an important part of me and it defines who I am to an extent. If somehow I lost my hands or my sight I really wouldn't know what to live for anymore..! (Well, maybe I could still tell stories, or ask someone to write them down, but still...) On the other side, sometimes I think it's not a very good thing, because I can't concentrate 100% on my job and on other aspects of my life, making me a forgetful, distracted and a clumsy kind of person. I really want to change that, but it's really hard!! Does this happen to you guys?? 

Here's a little bit of my progress as a comic artist. Feel free to laugh!! And if possible, I'd like to see yours as well! xD

I think I drew these when I was 6-7 years old...
1 by Heldrad
2 by Heldrad
Below, when I was 8 and 10. The first one is a silent comic from a soap opera called "La Usurpadora", about a pair of twins and their love interest.. Pffft!
3 by Heldrad
This is one of the first comics I drew with dialogues LOL it's so embarrassing!! 
4 by Heldrad
The next ones are from when I was 11 and 13. The first was a story of a group of kids that went camping with their teacher to the jungle and got lost.
5 by Heldrad
The second is from a series called The 4th Mission xDD My little sister was my only fan. 
6 by Heldrad

This is from when I was 14. The story is called The Prophecy of the 6 Elements and it was created by my friends and me when we were in Middle School  (remember, :iconneohin:?).
Up until now I had no idea what a page layout was xDD

7 by Heldrad
These were drawn when I was 16. The first is a story about kids that go camping and get lost in the jungle. Again xD It's the new version. LOL!! 
8 by Heldrad
The second is from a series  called Cloe Remembrance xD My first BL and written in english. Ah, this time both read from right to left.
9 by Heldrad

I drew Cloe Remembrance until 2011, and Orange Junk began the same year. I've been drawing it for 3 years already :D
Since I use Manga Studio now, the sketches are rough xD but I think I have a better understanding of the page layout and stuff.

What about you guys?? 
I'm very curious to know how other artists began drawing, and what they did as kids! What kind of stories you created? How did you start drawing comics? Did you learn by yourself?? Please let me know! :D

Thanks for reading!! Hope you found it a little fun xDD~
