Hi there all!!
I know it was a long time ago since i updated my Journal. Its kind of the same story still, I am not too happy with myself at the moment. Wishing to be more successful and all that jizz, but i guess i demand too much from myself?
For those that care about little animals and are willing to read on.. My animals are doing very well. I was BEST in the Pet class over 2012 so that was nice to accomplish. Now last show i was 2nd Best over all the Long haired Guinea Pig breeds, I was proud.
This month i had to cut the hair of my beloved Celicia, she's such a sweety and it was hard to cut the hair i've been brushing and working on for about 7 months now. She will never be able to show in the Fancy class again, she can only enter in pet. But good news, she may be expecting some Guinea babies over the next 10 weeks
I hope to keep improving this year and do more art compared with previous year. So far, i have done more art compared with June 2012, so i am happy. Another thing i want to accomplish is doing more perspective studies and i've set also a challenge for myself..
Finish 60 studies -- the pictures i will be using are from National Geographic and nature based (mostly animals). Drawing a lot of animals should improve my anatomy understanding, and hopefully allow me to draw Creatures / Monsters. Fingers crossed!!
Also i plan to keep doing Jogee Art Challenges on the side, as i do learn where my strengths and weaknesses lies. I still struggle A LOT with drawing Clothing, where the folds go, specially with movement!! I'm getting better with drawing hair, but i am still most comfortable by sticking close to a reference. But lets see how much we can improve by the end of the year.
