|Carved my first pumpkin last weekend! It was pretty fun!|
I have watched a lot of amazing and interesting things that have sparked an idea in my mind. I try to sketch it or write notes down as fast as possible before I forget (which happens too often!!)so try to take advantage of art days at my home where I can take my mind off some things and paint or sketch a little something here and there.
Here are a two sketches:
This one is a sketch I did when I started of thinking "what do I want to draw?" I thought of an idea a friend told me about, so I wanted to draw a picture that might go with it. The inked pic is a little distorted though.... I liked the moments where I can quickly get out an idea and still like it after i got a lot of it planned out by pencil!

This one is drawn with some strong emotion to it. I took a pic, edited on my phone, and uploaded to instagram. I also wanted to draw it because I wanted to try to match the angle of the face.
I also edited a picture (with persmission :p)
Of Utsukushii gal's Rii. I really liked the photo, and just wanted to play around with making it look like it should be in a magazine.The second one is just amping up the colours withing the hair, darkening the shadows, and making her eyes and lips POP!
BAM! SUPER GLAM!
The third picture is just me making her eye make up look more dramatic, and changing the lip colour to a more purple tone. I still want to make it a bit more edgy though.
Being stressed out isn't fun! And though I cannot make all the stress just *poof* and disappear, I try to get in some meditating, praying, and writing stuff down so I can manage my time a bit easier. Just meditating once or twice, making one list, or just saying things will change won't make things happen magically, but getting into the habit of changing how you look at things that gets you down helps a lot!
