A giveaway! I know I won't win, but... ah well xD SpunkyPoptart's [link]
art is great anyhow, I'm glad I found her [link]
Oh a side note... trying to start this 90 day exercise challenge from blogilates [link]
. I really need to get back in shape, it's affecting my schoolwork and my motivation. I can't sleep well at night, can't concentrate, feel unsatisfied with my days, feel discouraged, etc. It just really needs to happen one way or another. I've been slowly gaining weight for about 2 years now, about half a pound each month. I've managed to stop stress-eating and saved myself from gaining any extra weight the past, um, four months I believe. I also lost a few pounds and this BSA camporee, I was a volunteer who walked around ALL DAY for 3 days.
I really want to do the meal plan as best I can, but my parents probably won't like the idea of buying me loads of odd things, like protein powder or hemp. Be interesting to see what happens.
Ah, let's see... been sketching my characters lately. I left my tablet and my sketchbook alone for a long time, had to get my priorities in order. Schoolwork, car fund, chores, exercise, then artwork. I'd love to just draw all day, but I can't 3': Luckily I'm really trying to draw faster. I've created characters by challenging myself not to erase and, in the span of 30 minutes, create a fluent anatomy and sketch 2 poses of that person/body style in all 3 forms [anthro, human, animal]. Then add hair, clothing, and accessories. I enjoy doing this, and it doesn't overrun my day. I challenge myself to ink it ALL in 30 minutes as well, the next day when it's not as fresh and I can critique myself. I'd forgotten how good it felt to draw
:3 I feel like myself again!
Ah yes, and I have 2 commissions left. One is from mweor, she asked me to draw her aboriginal characters, a hyena/secretary bird and an african wild dog/vulture. I'm so proud of myself, the inking is turning out beautifully! And since I left it alone for about a month [sorry!] I can see a lot of things that I know now but didn't at the time.
The other commission is also someone who contacted me from mweor. She wants 2 characters done based on her greyhounds, a tan male and a beautiful black-and-white spotted female. I'm almost finished with them both, it's been moving along very fast and I'm super satisfied :3 First time I've gotten an official USD commission! <3
This is unrelated, but going up to Arkansas to see my grandparents for a week or two!! I love them, I can't wait, it'll be just me and them
They need a lot of work done around the house, like painting a shed and raking leaves, and said they'd help me with my car fund if I worked for them. YOU BET I WILL. I hope to get my last hour of DriversED done on the trip up there, and in 2 weeks exactly, it will FINALLY BE MY 16TH BIRTHDAY. My life begins! I can get a job, get a car, get a license, ohhhh... I've been waiting so long for this moment!
GUESS WHAT I WANT? An online art class!! [link]
It's more than I can afford without neglecting my car fund, so I thought this would be a good time to ask my parents to purchase it for me. I reeeeeally want to start learning art again. It'll be my first class, and sometime in the next 2 years I want to start earning a BFA before I go to med school. Doing both I guess? xD
As always, God Bless. :3 Look up the 'End It' slavery movement, you'll be amazed by how many people are still slaves. The goal here is awareness, so spread it around?
