Hair Practice- Final
Other than some shading touch-ups, I don't really feel that I can take this piece much further. I'm happy with the way it came out, though 😊 I also learned to use a new tool today; a kneaded eraser! I also learned than when you're shading with a Bic ballpoint pen that a kneaded eraser is pretty damned useless! Live and learn, I suppose. My fault for trying to fix a problem that was caused by using the wrong tool with the wrong tool 😅 Anyways... Hope you like it!

Hair Practice (WIP)
I've been trying to improve on drawing hair lately (since I'm procrastinating on anatomy so much 😋). I find myself struggling with layers and volume, as well as defining the relevant hairlines. This one, I feel, is one of my better attempts as of late. I'll keep working and upload the finished piece, should it turn out to be a success 😉Hope you like it!

500 views! Thank you so much everyone 😁 All of the favorites, comments, and critiques are what keep me striving to do better. With my job keeping me busy for such long periods of time, drawing helps me to relax and destress. Taking photographs is another hobby of mine, so I'll be uploading more of those in the near future. Thanks again everyone! I look forward to seeing you at 600 and beyond 😉
Peeling potatoes is so... boring...
I've been watching "Tsugumomo" recently and couldn't help but laugh at how demure Kiriha looked in this scene. Had fun with this one despite the look of pure boredom on her face 😄 Hope you like it!

The Other Half Unfinished
Not sure what this piece really means. I hadn't intended to leave it at the halfway-ish mark, but what's done is... well, you get the point. Hope you like it ;)

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies. My mother and I sometimes laugh about how much we put ourselves down; especially in front of others. As an ever-aspiring artist, I believe that self-analysis and self-criticism are both necessary and unavoidable. We agonize over the slightest details and commit ourselves to unattainable perfection in nearly everything we do. Now into my early 30's, I'm beginning to realize just how much time I let slip through my fingers being this way. I want to create art that is both appealing to others, as well as fulfilling on a fundamental level. I had a direction with this, but I'm losing it... I guess what I'm trying to get at is that I not only want to learn from others, but I want to learn from myself first. In order for me to do that, you may see some self-analysis presented along with my submissions. I'm not trying to be negative, but I want to open discussions on ways to improve my art. As I'm also a musician, I fully understand how much one person can improve themselves by practicing in a group setting. My instrumentation jumped leaps and bounds when playing with others. I want to apply some of that theory to my art. A "band" of sorts. I see a lot of artists these days who take commissions and requests, which I absolutely and genuinely respect as someone who wouldn't dream of running solo. I don't want to do that. Instead, perhaps a small group of artists, desiring to be more, who feed off of and nurture one another in the hopes of achieving similar goals. God, where the hell am I going with this!? Okay, enough for now. Maybe someone would be so kind as to give their thoughts on the matter? Am I seriously writing a journal entry and asking for audience participation?... I need professional help...
