Anyway, I'm here to tell you right now, that I was not in the mood to color this week, so we have a load of black and white, and I hope that's okay with y'all.
Sometimes it's just easier to stick with my pens and pencils. And I'm best with black and white, sometimes I feel like my color drawings are a bit.... how can I say... garish. I don't like garish..... Hmm. What do you think?
I wish mechanical pencils came with brown lead, because I want to start drawing in sepia tones, but it's hard for me to use regular pencils because they loose their sharp points really fast and it freaks me out.
I really like my pencils to stay sharp.
I also want to try digital art, but as far as I can tell, free programs are not the thing, and people recommend Photoshop or... or a different one I forget the name of. But I cannot afford Photoshop and it makes me sad. #brokepeopleproblems
Right so let's get on with it, shall we?
1.) Sometimes I draw guys holding girls and laughing because love is awesome.
|Do I think big, chunky glasses are attractive? Why yes. Yes I do.|
2.) Sometimes I draw different poses of guys holding girls and laughing.
3.) Sometimes I draw scary hair. Mostly because I saw a picture on pinterest and wondered if I could... draw it.
4.) Sometimes I draw kisses.
5.) Sometimes I use my previous drawings as references for bigger pictures. (To be colored when I'm not sad that I misread the deadline for an art contest.)
6.) Sometimes I draw Lucy Carlyle from Lockwood & Co.... And discovered that I really like the effect of super dark eyes and thick eyebrows.
7.) Sometimes I draw Anthony Lockwood because hawt. (Also because I just finished the third book of the series and YEAH OKAY, INTENSE, AND A LITTLE BIT CREEPY.)
8.) Sometimes I draw people getting walloped with a snowball because it's almost December.
I did not draw Tristan and gang this week, because they're still insisting that Max do the Thing. I do not want Max to do the Thing, so they aren't going to be drawn until, A.) Max decides not to do the thing, B.) Max gives me a really good reason why he should do the Thing, or, C.) Max figures out a way to do the Thing without making the entire gang and the whole world hate him.
Now that Thanksgiving has passed, I feel I can listen to Christmas music and it makes me so happy. You have no idea how hard it was for me to wait until Thanksgiving. This year, I don't know what it is, but I was ready for Christmas by like... October.
I want to get candy canes and go caroling when it's like two days 'til Christmas.
You guys should give me ideas for Christmas cards because every time I sit down to draw one, I get art blocked.
FYI, the Mary Poppins we went to see last week was stellar. So unbelievable good, I'm a Broadway snob, and I think the talent in the show was definitely good enough to be on Broadway. *dies* So good.
Anyway, how are all you lovely people?
I found a new artist on pinterest that I adore, and when I finish this post, I'm going to find everything she has ever drawn and pin it. (All while probably crying that I'm not even sort of that good. Like seriously, look.)
*cries all the tears*
Mkay, question time.
Favorite drawing this week?
If you could pick one of the above for me to color, which would it be?
You should give me ideas for Christmas cards.
Seriously. I need ideas.
Have you read "Lockwood & Co"?
Alrighty! I must go. I love you all!
