Random Ramblings (Now with PICTURES!)

So, the weirdest damn thing happened.  See, I've been trying to draw since I was a kid, and the GIR drive doesn't count...Under those dozens of layers of paint are at least a thousand massive fuck-ups and re-draws you can't see.  I layered and kept covering mistakes and I'm surprised that thing isn't a 1/2 inch thicker with all the paint that's on it.

Even my family remembers me, as a kid, having wads of paper strewn across my room like a frustrated poet from trying, so diligently, to learn to draw, and this went on until I was about 13 when I finally gave up, lost interest, started chasing boys, getting into mischief, and the normal shit you do at that age.

Fast forward to last year and I decided to try my hand at it again.  Fail.  Then, a while back, we were at a friends' house and I was looking through an anime drawing book there, and it was gifted to me.  I really took it just to be polite, but when I got home I decided to give it one last shot and this is what happened:

This last one is the very first one I did.

Weird, huh?  I'm stoked about it though.  I can't seem to draw anything else, just anime, but I'm totally cool with that and intend to keep practicing.  The Wookie said I'd just finally hit a learning curve, probably because of all the crafts I do...I guess he's right, so WHEE LEARNING CURVES!

Have you ever tried for ages at something and fail only to wake up one day and nail that shit?

  1. Aw, I love them! So cute. I'm trying to improve my drawing skills, unfortunately its going to take a lot, but oh well I enjoy it. :)

    1. I still have a long way to go, but at least it is serious progress from where I was, so don't stop trying!

  2. SUPER CUTE!!! My fail was making meringue cookies. I could never get the meringue to come out without being grainy or just gross. Then I randomly tried and they came out perfect! Who knows why but now I get cookies so I'm happy ^___^
