Omgosh.  People actually look at my pictures and like them.  I feel too shy to go thanking people right now.  I totally see you guys!  And I'm floored XD  It is very humbling that anyone even looks at anything I do and kind words are always appreciated.  I'm in that strange stage where I am too shy to talk about my art outside of submitting.  I don't feel right spamming up everybody's da's with thank yous, but really guys, thank you!  It's nice to know that my doodles and colorings could have even the tinitiest amount of positive impact in someone's life.


Still doing it.  Still sucking.  Still trying.  I just submitted a re-color to see what I have learned since starting.  My time is more taxed now because of work demands, but I still try to at least get one drawing or one coloring in a day.  I've about completely stopped trying to collab, because I am not comfortable coloring on shared work when I can see I have defecits in my technique but am at a loss on how to fix.  

I've been drawing sketches more, something I don't particularly like to do or consider myself good at doing.    Feeling where a line should be drawn and knowing where the color goes seems to go hand in hand.  But I feel like my color is both benefiting and hurting.  I can't focus on color when I am going nuts trying to keep my hand steady on linework or trying to get the form right with and without looking at refs.  I'd honestly just rather color lineart, but this has been a necessary evil for now.

Thank you to the people who hang around, putting up with my doodles and scribbles.  If anyone is benefiting from me pulling my hair out and messing around, I'm glad.    :iconlazycryplz:

5 months in, I'm thinking about the long term.  This is the most I've ever actively practiced art in my entire life since I was younger.  Not at the point of making DD worthy stuff in my opinion, but you know what I think anyone with an iota of art skill is capable of great work with good guidance and 1000% effort.  I don't want my art to just look good- I want it to have meaning!  

Onward to day 365 and beyond!
