Okay, so been watching art vids on YouTube all day, reading, with occasional writing of drabbles inserted here and there. I’m a bit sore and achey from staying up all night drawing. Definitely did not have that happen when I was in high school. The art vids have me feeling insecure about my art skills, … Continue reading I’m guilty of enjoying lockdown.
So I’ve never been that happy with my portraits of Tegwin. Classically beautiful is surprisingly hard to draw. I always liked to draw interesting faces, with wrinkles or freckles. Tegwin is an interesting character, but seemingly tiny and delicate and of course a flawless complexion (don’t worry kids, she’s no Mary Sue.) This is one … Continue reading Happy accident
Any way I decided to do a art study of character expressions in between rewriting chapters, and snippets for A Whisper of Destiny but I absolutely had to share this.

I’ve been ignoring him for weeks, and I’ve … Continue reading Today’s sketch
In the name of procrastination, I doodle thee Raphael. Not wanting to do rewrites for a Whisper of Destiny or write that revised outline for book 2, I started writing a short story. Y’all meet Raphael (that’s what he’s called for now.)
So I’m posting a time lapse vid on one of my earlier pieces of art. Does any one else find these hilarious? Yes I’ve just discovered they are a thing. Bare with me, I’m basically reteaching myself to art, but I’m definitely having fun in the process.
This one is a bit rough. Trying to get the proportions right. Might have to study a few YouTube vids. So I’m off work yet again, with back spasms triggered by an migraine. Le sigh. Migraine long over now, but I walking around like an old lady. Sort of disappointed, because there was snow! Not … Continue reading A few sketches
