Guess what guys!! Things are making an unexpected turn to my favor! Say what?!
So I know I've been slacking a bit. I was sticking to the challenge I promise! (I guess now what I have to stick to is my blogging schedule,huh?) The thing is A LOT of things happened! I know I will get into it so if you'd like you can just skip down to the drawings below.
First of all, I'm not working in the mornings anymore! I'm working night shifts now which means it's a little bit more time consuming, I'm leaving the house earlier which means less time on internet, and I'm not counter anymore! Whoop, Whoop! Well I technically still am sometimes, but I'm moving on to decorator! Yessss I'm still so excited! I was actually decorator all by myself one day last week, ugh I was dying though. Oh, I guess I haven't explained what I'm decorating, they're cakes! Hopefully, I get a raise, I feel like that'd help me with my hobby necessities. I'm kind of scared though, I don't know if I should ask for one, or I automatically get it you know? Oh and I convinced my boss to hire my best friend, talk about trying to take advantage of the place.
Second of all, the family problems are still here! It was to the point where I was going to leave the house. Yes, completely move out. I honestly don't want to get into details so I'll leave it at that!
Third of all, OH my precious YouTube! I can't get enough! Seriously, it seems like I'm addicted to this website more and more. I've been doing research on a few things like some art channels and DIY clothes channels. They're inspiring me to make my own in the future! Of course, after I get money to actually buy the materials. *Sigh*
Now on to the good part! (Beware the quality sucks for these)
Day 8: Favorite Animated Character
This one was really hard to pick. I've watched many shows in my life and trying to pick just one animated character makes life hard. The best next thing to do was narrow my options down. I wanted it to be something modern that kind of shows what I'm into at the moment, and at the same time a character I would never get tired of. I know this is going to sound ridiculous but another factor to the character I chose is because animated= anime. I know, I know self-explanatory. It clicked in my head though and I liked the idea of picking it from an anime. Here is Saitama! (from One Punch Man)
Day 9: Favorite TV Show
I don't watch TV! What?!?! Thankfully, I have a boyfriend who does and he had told me about this amazing show. That's right, Steven Universe! I fell in love with it and watch it on an app. I tried to do my own version or style of it, but I consider it a failure. I'll try again in the future and of course I'll share it with ya'll!
Day 10: Favorite Candy
Do you remember those little butterscotch and cinnamon candies they used to give out when you were smaller? Those candies your grandmother would always have? Well, those are my favorite! Pretty lame if I may say so myself, but I love their burst of flavor. So because they're so simple, I did this drawing for it. Hmm, don't know if upset at the fact that my imagination sucks or that my favorite candy is lame.
Day 11: Turning point in your life
This one was a little hard to draw in my perspective. Not because I couldn't draw it, but because I honestly didn't want to. As you all may know, the turning point in my life was when my father passed away. I'll leave it at that, sorry!
Day 12: Most Recent Accomplishment
I should've taken a picture of my dying hand for this one! No I am not exaggerating! Recently I got promoted to cake decorator and it may sound like an easy job, but it is not. Well it is easy, but I did not think that it would hurt so much! The icing is so hard in the bags and once you have to do more than 15 cakes my finger is purple! I'm a frail and skinny person to them apparently, but I get the job done! I feel I just need to get used to it a bit. After all, I did start off suddenly and my hands aren't used to it. My hand is actually swollen as I type this. :( That was actually one of the main factors why my drawings have been so lazy. I just can't even.
Day 13: Comic
Lame comic time! I have this small sketchbook, by small I mean, I can't draw a whole comic on a page. Guess what I did? I fit a comic on a page. Something small and simple. I completely forgot that a comic didn't have to be complicated and I could've made something smaller. *sigh*
Day 14: Favorite Fairy tale
I love Rapunzel! When I was little I had dreams of having long amazing hair, and I always loved the look they'd give the towers in children books. Of course my mom always killed that dream by cutting my hair in a bob. I tried something new out I picked up from Rambutan Illustration on YouTube. She usually cuts them out, but my idea was to give myself a smaller frame to work with and I loved it! You'll be seeing these more often now, it makes things easier for me.
Here's a video of hers on YouTube if you'd like to check her out! She also has a Patreon and I'm sure she'd love the support!
Till next time!
