Ask @Lillymon:

If I sent you a hand made gift will you accept it ? (。・ω・。)ノ♡

I would definitely accept it.

A handmade gift means someone has taken the time of their probably very busy day with the thought of only one person and I think that is really beautiful. A few years back, a dear friend of mine made a handcrafted plushie of my OC. It's to date, one of the very few prized possession I have.

Does mood control u in drawing ? Like some ppl say I'm not in the mood of drawing

I think it does affect my ability to draw but not to the point that I'd let it control me.
I draw regardless of mood because I don't have the luxury of free time. Whatever free time I have, I make sure I come up with something whether good or bad. The difference would be that when I'm in a good mood for drawing, then things turn out nice and pretty. When I'm not in the mood, I still draw but things turn out less attractive and usually gets scrapped.

How can I learn drawing background ? Any advices ?

Once again, I don't think I'm the right person to be asked about backgrounds since I very rarely draw them.
But if I were to start doing so today, I'd observe and start with small backgrounds rather than full scenes and slowly build my way up. I'd have to keep in mind the general composition, atmosphere and lighting since these are crucial elements. I'll also have to study a lot of scenery photos. Getting started is how one learns to draw backgrounds, with time one gets the hang of it.

Who is your top fave character (*^3^)/~♡ ? (Anime or games)

I have many top favourite characters lol!
But there are a few top favourites who are constantly on my mind, they would be Conner Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3, my custom Hawke and Fenris from Dragon Age II, John Shepard from the Mass Effect series and Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher series.

Would you unfollow an artist because of their attitude? (if so, have you ever done it?) or you're there just for the art and their personality is none of your interest?

I would and I've done so a number of times.
I'm mostly tolerant of other artist's attitudes but the ones who frequently create or get involved in dramas plus arrogant artists earn an instant unfollow regardless of whether I like their art or not.

Any advices for improvements ?

My number one big advice is, when it comes to digital drawing, don't do it in a single session. Have your preliminary sketch drawn and leave it. You'll be able to spot your mistakes more easily and clearly the next time you pick it. Result is better drawings, minimal disasters.
Don't be afraid of trying new styles and techniques. You'll be amazed at what you can learn doing so. You can attend livestream sessions of other artists to see their process. Extremely helpful.
Step out of your comfort zone every once in a while.
Make a goal of sketching regularly, at least once a day or every next day (I should do this orz).
If a portion of the drawing looks off to you, instead of spending hours trying to figure out what's the problem or how to make it look better, simply erase that area and redraw the whole thing. Trust me it will be ten times better than the original.
Learn anatomy first, style comes later. Video games have helped me immensely with my anatomy!
Learn to get rid of layers and minimize its usage. Unless you absolutely have to, working on one layer both saves time, and gives better results. Not to mention it's a thousand times easier to fix in case you spot a mistake. With time, you'll notice you've become faster and hopefully better at drawing and hence, more productive.
Observe, observe, observe. When you are out, observe people. The varied shapes of jaws, noses, body types, the folds in their clothing, the material of which its made, their movement. Your brain will commit these details to memory and you'll be able to see more clearly as you sketch when you are back at home.
Also, don't shy away from critiques. Having your flaws pointed out to you by someone you trust will help very much.

Did you face a problem in drawing something then found a solution then fixed it ?! What was it ? And how did u fix it ?

It depends on the type of problem.
If I'm stuck with something anatomy related, taking a break and returning the next day almost always helps. If not, reference photos can do the trick and if I'm too lazy to search, I'll have my sister pose for me.
If I'm stuck with coloring, I browse my inspiration folder (but I almost always end up with a grey scale lol)
If I'm at loss about the subject of my drawing, playing a favourite video game, reading fanfiction or watching some episodes helps me figure out what to put on canvas.

did you wished once to be rhe other gender?

Anon
Yes, but only because I can't do jack shit unless accompanied by an immediate-family male chaperon AND with a male guardian's consent!
My entire life and careful plans is put on an infinite hold, years of hardwork and dedication all gone to waste, all because I don't have the right set of *equipments*.
I love who I am though. If things were different, I wouldn't even dream of trading places. Not that I want to trade places now. The mere thought of it makes me shudder.

Any dreams ? (Dreams when you sleep) and what do you dream about recently ?

I used to have really nice dreams back in the days but for the past few years, my sleep has been plagued by night terror and nightmares. Most of the time, I don't remember what I've seen and the few that I do remember I'd like to forget.
My most recent dream was yet another night terror -_-
