Exploration of Color #2
I wanted to try my hand at creating a piece that utilizes some light reflection. Not sure that I accomplished that here, but I had fun nonetheless :D Hope you like it!

Anatomy Practice
I've been wanting to get more time in practicing an anatomy, as I feel my repertoire is a bit narrow... Like 0.5 pencil lead narrow 😓 I'm still working on some other, more colorful pieces, but I thought I'd share a quick sketch and update. Hope you like it!

Thank you so much everyone for helping me to hit 400 page-views! I'm grateful to every single person who found my drawings and photos interesting enough to check out my profile 😁 I have more drawings in the works and will upload them very soon! Thanks again, and I can't wait to get to 500 with you 😉
Just finished my latest piece! Fun with color 😉😋
Nani nani? - Ver. 2
I wanted to try my hand at color once more. After receiving to great feedback and awesome advice on the original, I decided to redraw this one with some much needed detail. This is the first time I've worked so extensively with Prismacolor pencils, so there's some areas that are a little inconsistent, but I enjoyed the experience overall. I will need to order a few individual colors to replace the ones I wore down on this piece 😋 Hope you like it!

P.s. She's wasn't meant to be naked, I'm just really bad at drawing clothes 😉

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...
