One Year Later

Hello! It’s been a while and I’ll explain in a moment. But first, Happy Anniversary to my blog! One year ago I started this blog so I can have a designated space to talk about my drawings, old and new. I honestly didn’t expect more than some family members to read it but I currently have 67 followers! Thank you so much for that! It feels good for a learning artist like me to know that people are actually seeing my stuff and care to see more.

When I realized the one year mark was coming up I decided to redraw the first drawing I finished after starting this blog which was this one.Downton Abbey

I wanted to show that I had improved in my craft over the year so here you go, the new and improved Downton Abbey Sisters.DowntonAbbeySisNew

I will need to get a better picture of this drawing at some point. It’s a little blurry.

A little side by side comparison.DowntonComp

I would say that there are definite improvements. The faces are closer likenesses, shading is improved, better detailing, even more contrast. Did I improve on lace? Heck no! Lace is awful.

I was going to add some background to the new one, but decided not to so it would be a clearer comparing drawing.

So I have improved this year! Yay! Now for the reason for no updates in a couple months. Well, I think it was a mix of lack of motivation and being overwhelmed. I currently have 7 uncompleted drawings hanging around. SEVEN! I’ve started all of them over the past 3-4 months. I think they’re looking good and for some reason I lose interest in it and stop. The Downton Abbey was first completed drawing since Uma Thurman, and that was in May! I’ll have to figure something out to get me really motivated again.

Anyways. Thanks again for reading this blog. I appreciate the support. I promise (mostly to myself) to keep updating and improving.

Keep Drawing!
