Drawing makes me happy

This is a portrait done entirely in charcoal and white pastel. Its is of the lovely Z. You can find them on through the link tentaclesandteacups. I have to keep practicing on portraits of people since I haven't been doing any lately. So this is number one.

yatta yatta

Gave in and started writing again. Mainly I write just personal stuff, the things that I'm uncomfortable writing online about with nosy prying eyes. I find its so relieving to be able to vent to something without anyone actually knowing. I like the secrecy, the mysterious of writing something no body will ever see until someone stumbles upon it, or you stumblr upon it yourself. Somewhat like a time capsule in a way. Expressing more about a moment that any photograph ever could.

Appart from that I'm going more in depth with trying to get myself to learn French and Japanese. I found some really helpful books that I will buy once I come upon some money, I don't see myself undertaking any courses though, I think it will just aggravate me and make me emotional. I like learning on my own, its the only method that I can actually learn.

I have some pictures to upload on here soon...

Making things

I was watching Lord Of The Rings with my sister and I guess this kind of inspired this. I have wished ever since I was little that I could be a elf  (Plan to get my ears pointed in the future) . This is basically a prototype that I made in 10 mins out of thing aluminum sheeting. Cut out the pattern that I wanted and scratched in veins for the leaf before molding it into shape. Turned out pretty well. Can't wait to make more of these babies!!
