My Little Sister Ana!!! :D

I'm an only child, and I've ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted a sister. So about 6 months ago I applied to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Orange County to become a mentor, AKA a Big Sister. FINALLLLYYY after what seemed like FOREVERRRRR, I was matched with this super cute little girl named Ana Betina. I met her for the first time on Tuesday, and today we're going on our first outing :D This is a huge thing for me, and I want to make sure I make a good impression on her from the start. I wanted to do something special, so I thought I'd do a drawing for her! (since I found out she also likes to draw :D) I did this quickly at lunch, so the leg is kinda messed up but...I'll do a better one later when I get to know her better. I'm just so happy and I want to show it! My match could've easily been a disaster, but right when I met Ana I had this feeling that she was absolutely perfect for me. I'm sooo excited for what's to come, and I wanted to somehow express that to her :)

I haven't really colored anything in a while so I'm pretty rusty, ESPECIALLY with colored pencils. I just had no time to take it into the computer, and I thought it was important for me to hand her something completely hand drawn. I hope she appreciates it!

Personality Test

So...I'm supposed to post a drawing today that I have planned, hopefully I can squeeze it in at lunch because I am busy as all hell nowadays and never have ANY spare time in the day at ALL to do ANYTHING.


Anyway, Ali had this awesome idea to make clothes out of people's personalities, so I did this personality test for her (I LOVE taking these things :D) and
you can click here for my results. You know, if you care enough? :P This is mainly for my own personal future reference, because I think it's pretty accurate. Fits me to a T. (what does that mean exactly? I never really knew...) If you wanna take the test, click HERE. It's fun! :D Or click the link below. I guess that's my color map? O_o I haven't finished reading it yet haha~

Analytical Figure Drawing - Week 02

I know it's bad right now, but I PROMISE I'll improve. D:

We had to try 30 second gesture drawing...but I got frustrated and started drawing poses from Back to the Future (bottom).

Regardless of how much I suck, I am in LOVE with my class. If there's any way I'll actually improve, this is it. Surrounded by so many amazing can I not? :)

Figure Drawing...

...really gets me confused at how I can be just...SO BAD at doing it. =_=

Analytical Figure Drawing - Week 01

Oh man. It's been a while since I posted! Looks like I didn't draw a whole buncha friends like I had planned =__= That's bound to happen soon though, since I started my analytical figure drawing class at Concept Design Academy in Pasadena! :D Well I actually missed the first class last Sunday since I was in Vegas, so tomorrow ( will be my first class!

Still had to do homework though...I realized that I really...REALLYYYYY suck at figure drawing! I am hoping beyond all hope that I will improve as much as I want to improve in my head, because I am really ashamed at what I've produced so far. I was pretty much winging it, because even though the class has an AMAZINGLY helpful blog ( I still didn't really know what he wanted for the homework and I just did whatever.

I'm going to post this here because I really want to see where I go from here, because right now I am at the lowest of the low...and I can only move up from here as I learn, right? ~___~

Vince, who has taken figure drawing, was trying to help me through this because I was really frustrated with how stiff and sketchy everything was coming out. My progression can be seen through the series of these sketches. The ones I did today (the bottom 3) look really different from the top ones which I did a couple days ago... thankfully. I think they look more...figure-drawing-ish??? RIGHT?! Maybe.
