I'm falling in love with charcoal.
I was given a packet of charcoal pencils for Christmas and until now I hadn't really given them much thought. I've played around with them, but nothing really serious.
Over the last couple days I decided I wanted to do a picture that I'd been planning for ages and ages. But I needed the right medium. I also decided that I'd give my charcoal a go and see how it went. And, as I'm sure you can tell, it went rather well.
They are just brilliant for shading. Something I love to do with my graphite pencils. Making the folds, the light and shade. Love 'em. Next week I shall upload a picture of what I drew.
For now, I shall continue practicing with them. And I'm sure you'll see more done with them in the near future.

Ok, so at the moment I'm not able to upload pictures. Really happy about it, but there's nothing I can do about it. A total pain in the ass.
I'm getting close to finishing “In the Garden.” I'm pretty happy with it. Though of course there are a couple little things that I'm going to redo.
I've started working of a bunch of other things as well. I've found in the last few weeks that I really can draw males and male clothing. -big smile- I've always been rather hesitant to draw the male gender, But no longer. -hehe- Happy.
I'm also working on some older pictures which I'm yet to finish because I was either to lazy or I lost the inspiration for it or just got to a point where I didn't know what do to next to finish it.
I've been making thing too. Sewing and beading. It's fun. I have these random bursts where I'll suddenly have about 20 different ideas for pieces of jewellery crowding my brain. It's annoying when that happens. Still I can usually get through them. When I can upload again I'll put a few things up.
Something a little out of the ordinary for me is that I've been sewing. I've made a little white dress with red lace on the bottom and a sash that you can, but don't have to, wear. I love it. It can be worn as a dress or top. Very simple, but nice.
And now, I'm going to go and study a bit..... or do some more art, which ever is the closest thing to me.

I've decided it's time for me to upload some new pictures of my art. I did these back in 2007. I used an HB pencil and cannot remember how long it took for me to do them. I use my hand and my eldest sisters hand as references for these pictures. To this day I still like looking at them because I don't like drawing hands and I was able to produce these pictures.

Bored as all get out. 2

Ok. So I did have two links that were meant to come up in that last post, but as you can see it didn't work. So I thought i'd just enter them.
If you copy and paste the first one into google it's the first link, then scroll down to popular and click on Watermelon Art it's very cool.


Like wise with this link. Click on the first link. Just go through the picures. There are some studding photos.


I hope you have a look and enjoy them as much as I did.

Bored as all get out.

So, I was VERY bored last night while playing around on a website called 'Polyvore' (good time waster). I was looking for certain pictures to add to the set I was making and I came across these two sites. I thought they looked pretty good and when actually went to the site I was glad I did.

The first site has some pretty cool photos on it. You have to look at the watermelon art. I know, totally random. I saw it and though what in the world.... Then I looked at it. It's sooooo freaking cool.
The second site has some of the most beautiful, not to mention, breath taking photos I've seen. Definitely worth looking at.

Any ways, As bored as I might still be I have to get on with life. Study time. (blah)
