If I could wish for anything, it would definitely be more time to work on my personal projects. Until then, I’ll just stay up really late sometimes embroidering until my fingers ache. This is going to take some time!

I think I won’t be able to get much done in my sketchbook until winter break because this quarter has been so crazy! At any rate, here are a few pages!

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Ugly Birds . . .

September 1, 2011 § 3 Comments

This is becoming a small-ish painting. It currently looks more like this:

One of my friends back home was attempting to rush paint some matryoshka doll artwork for me because she’s awesome, but wasn’t able to finish before I actually visited. Anyway, I was kind of enamored with her elaborate designs & was like, ” I wanna try!”

But of course, my drawing style differs greatly from this friend of mine so I kind of put the want aside for a while thinking it would be far too complicated & time consuming & something I would botch up. Then there was one day when I was doodling pictures of penguins in my journal which of course morphed into ugly birds. & Then there were many ugly birds of various sizes & you can see how things went from there! Anyway, this one has been so fun to work on that I’ve been working quite slowly. I almost never want it to be finished!

Refusing to be Merely “Inspired”

So remember when I got a Pinterest account & was like, “oh, I hope this doesn’t ruin my productivity”? Well, nothing can! Unfortunately there is this thing about bookmarking things where sometimes those links turn bad after a while. However, the image using abilities of Pinterest meant that I was able to stare at a picture still.

There was a little picture of these cute crocheted pillows & I thought maybe I would use a pattern, but since the link died, I remembered that inventing a square-like pattern is not hard. Expect this to be attached to a pillow soon!

Leave it Be & Walk Away

Okay, enough of this hand! I am forcing myself to just knock it off already. Moving on to the balloons . . .

Sometimes when I’m painting things, I tend to get really hung up on making a zillion layers with just very subtle changes in colors. Combining this with the fact that I really like drawing hands means I have spent way more time on this for how not close to being done it is. Haven’t even started the other canvas!
