Manly Men

So, I’ve always been intimidated by drawing males for some reason. I don’t know why, but they always come out feminine. It’s something I definitely have to work on. This is the first male model we had at the art group.


Beep Bop Boop

For some reason this pose was very intimidating to me. Now that I look at it again I mostly like it, but it’s driving me nuts that her left are is horribly skinny…

Joined an Art Group

I recently joined an art group. I try to go once a week after work. Depends on my school load, but I’ve been able to go a few times already. Lots of fun people and a chance to draw. How can that not be an awesome night. Here are a few of my drawings from the past month.

First live model drawing in Forever!

She’s not as angry as she looks….

I was trying a new pen, it’s going to take some getting used to. It’s a brush pen.

And I don’t know why I have so much trouble with lips…..

My favorite drawing of the previous page. The red one, not the black one. Although I do like the difference between the two mediums on the same page.

AND NOW, my absolute favorite drawing so far:

This model had the most beautiful hair!! It was such fun.

Roller Derby

Hello Hello!

I have been drawing. Definitely not as much as I was in Feb, but I have. I just haven’t taken pictures of my drawings yet. I’ll post them sometime; maybe not this week, but I have them and they will be posted when I get a chance and I actually remember I need to do that.

My art journal is a lot of fun. I’m still trying to hard to keep it perfect, and I think once I lose that mentality I will have even more fun with it. One of the pages of my journal is about the roller derby I went to. I’ve never been to one before, it was fun.

These are the logos for all the teams that competed.

Lucky Cat Terrarium

Thanks to my friend Anna and the box of crafty goodies she sent me I was able to finally make a moss terrarium. Something I have always wanted to do, but never really got around to. She sent me the moss, rocks for the bottom, and a little golden ring to put in it. I found the jar at a thrift store for $2 (definitely going to keep my eye open for more) and I got the little pink lucky cat from a craft swap last year. I knew she would have a purpose.


I put the rocks on the bottom, then the soil, then the moss, and decorated. I was reading and it seems that activated charcoal is recommended for one of the layers, but I don’t have any of that around. We’ll see how this one does, if not so well, I’ll find some charcoal.





Have a lucky cat kind of day!
