More drawings!

Okay, so recently I've been wanting to draw, so I thought: why not draw the names of my blog friends?

Soooo, I have started a few. All they need now are some color. But the thing is, I don't want to mess up, so I'm worried about how to color them. So, you get to see my first finished drawings without color. Hmm, it may have been clearer if I had the light on... Oh well.

Niccolo, I'm sorry about the bird. I am absolutely positive it won't be a bald eagle once I draw it. But that was the second time I ever drew a bird. Okay, including the chickens, fourth. And Jubi, I didn't finish it yet so I didn't want to show a headless wollameaver dolvampony. Looks good so far though! At least, with my imagination. Luce, the dots are skittles and you have a diamond as the dot of your 'i'. Death, there's a small thorn near the bottom of the stem. I think you can see it, that dark spot right next to the stem. Sorry that the name is hard to see though. Mara, the dot on the 'i' is a lily flower. And those are charms hanging off the word(in order left to right- heart, four petaled flower, 1D). Sorry, but I didn't think I could draw the boys, so I wrote the lyrics to some of their songs. :) Em, you have an eighth note as the 'd' in Melody and there's a drawing of Dublin Daes. Sorry about the ugly wolf on the cover, I suck at animals. Aaand, Star. Yours will have a spark(or just a symbol to mean bright) as the dot on your 'i'.

Just to remind you, I am still working on these, so the finished(and colored) result could be different.

Wow, I've been very blogpost active recently...

My drawing

The darker shades in the mountains are supposed to be the clouds' shadows. I may have made the sky too light to see, but there are clouds. You might be able to see the grey parts though. Oh, and I cut out the bottom half. You don't need to see it anyway, I drew mostly so I could have something more than a blank half. Still, it wasn't that great.

Oh- and this is the first time in a really long time that I have used crayons. I mean, it's not that I think they're for little kids, but I don't draw with crayons and markers because it's a little hard to control the strokes. By that, I mean with markers, sometimes you get areas with darker shades by coloring one spot too much. I don't like how it looks when some areas are darker when I don't want it to be. With crayons... well, I just don't use them much. But after trying the crayons in the drawing, I might change my perspective. It's almost like using colored pencils. Except that when they get dull, they'll be hard to use. I don't like sharpening them because the sharpener gets all waxy and blech. I'm picky when it comes to my art supplies. XP

Oh! But the crayon colors are so cool! It's all rainbow plus silver, gold, harvest gold, maroon(at least, I think it is. Kind of a brown-red), black, white, brown, and grey. And you get to see my sampling of them. Plus a tree in the corner. XD

A Post!

I've been wanting to write a post for some time now. I have just been so. Busy.

Hopefully, I'll be able to finish the drawing I'm working on and post that(if it turns out good). And I need to get another post up soon. Plus share what's been happening in the past week. But, for now you get this, because as I said, I'm pretty busy and only have time to post this one.

So, Spring. For some people, it would actually be turning Autumn, but over in the north it's turning Spring. Some of the flowers have already blossomed, I can see tufts of green grass growing around. But the leaves of the trees have yet to make their appearance. The sky has been pretty clear for the past week. Sometimes with white fluffy clouds. But the winds are blowing very fast and hard. Even with the sun shining, it's cold! Though sometimes it's nice. Oh- but there's just one little problem about Spring. BUGS!!! Gah, the bugs of the worst kind are back! Wasps, spiders, MOSQUITOS!!! I've seen some already! For those living on the north side, prepare for the bugs!
