Interests
haaaayy so now I am finally getting settled in to my new home, almost got the job sitch figured out (what a stress load off my mind!) and I can really spend more time practicing.. I've decided right now what I need to do with myself is instead of trying to do this big pieces one after the other, I'm going to P-R-A-C-T-I-C-E way more.. (Lord knows I need it).. I've been finding myself struggling with some simple concepts or figures in my drawings and I'm sick of my lacking of some technical skill to dampen my visions and sometimes kill my motivation to get my image onto paper the way I see it in my head.. my grandpa was the best and that was always his advice when I asked him how to be great like him and he would write me letters sending me his art instruction books and would say the same thing over and over- PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.. okayy!! I got it Grandpa! :) I hope you can see what I am doin from heaven and I really want to develop like the great artist that you became :heart:

Another part of my progression I want to work on is really developing my own style.. I feel like my work is all over the place, and I really want to get a hand that draws pictures that you can instantly recognize as mine.. thats the hardest part!

In order to keep myself on this track I am trying to stay true to, I started a blog.. I am really trying to use it to keep myself in check with these promises I am making to myself, and to post images of my practice so I have my own little journal of this artist trek we all have to take.. I am just a lazy sonuvagun and I am finally knowing myself well enough to know what things will keep me at it and develop good practicing habits so I dont falter and have another 3 month lull of no drawing (which I come to realize makes me a crabby person lol).. I'll share it once I start having some actual progress on that.. for now it's at entry one and its just me bitching about dealing with my own stubbornness in not developing my technical skill  :roll: lol

I dunno maybe I'll share it soon in all its embarrassing glory.. I'd like to connect more with people on dA (or any artists out there) who are struggling with the same thing.. trying to really find and reach your potential as an artist (sans expensive art school) while trying to maintain the other areas of life like work & relationships.. I feel like there's a lot of artists out there going through the same journey and I'm hoping we can find each other and do what we were put on this planet to do.. help each other :)

So just to prepare you.. probably a lot of WIPs and random practice drawings to come... feel free to critique and offer any advice that has helped make YOU become the amazing artist all you deviants are :)
