I've been quite busy lately. I now have 2 part-time jobs, and have recently acquired a quite energetic puppy.
I finally finished a charcoal drawing that I was doing for a friend. I had to redo it once, actually. I was working from a photo, and the drawing was also on a large piece of paper, so it took me a long time to get the proportions of everything right. My boyfriend gave me a lot of help with that, I don't think I could have managed without him. It was definitely a learning process--drawing well is basically just being able to draw what you see. It sounds easy, but it's not. You have to constantly be aware of what is where, and you have to see it both as a whole and in sections so you don't mess up the placement, proportions, and perspective of everything. I'm still not very good at it.
I've also considered doing some jewelry. I've always liked shopping for it, so I thought I might give it a little try. It would be something I could make multiples of easily, and it's something that's theoretically easy to quantify a base cost for.
I get discounts working at Michaels, so now I have more opportunities to try different things. Being around the supplies and seeing people get them for their own projects makes me feel like working on projects too, as I kind of hoped it would.
I should have a couple more drawings to put up really soon that I'm just finishing.
