Christmas Sketching

Hello, welcome to Road2Gold!

Nice to see you all again. I hope you all had a great Christmas! I know I did!

Christmas is a great time to hang out with the people you love. It is also a time of doing things you like to do. One of those things to me is sketching or drawing.

My sister and I have been drawing a lot over Christmas Break. I’ve been helping her with her heads and anatomy, and I have been reading how to improve my own drawings.

Here is a few that I’ve drawn:TemaridrawingsealSasukedrawingseal

And here is one that my sister did:AkamarudrawingBseal

We both drew characters from a TV show and we both were very pleased with how they came out!

I have finally mastered heads and faces. We both have gotten better at drawing this winter and we hope to improve all the more in 2013!

Happy drawing and Happy New Year!

Land of the Mouse

Hello, hello! Welcome back to Road2Gold!

This past week my family and I took a trip to Orlando, Florida! Land of the Mouse!

The first thing we did was head to Epcot in Disney world. We stayed there walking around the countries and flying to Mars and back. (I guess space travel makes Mom and Dad a bit queasy.) My favorite part was Japan. (If you don’t know, I have always wanted to go to Japan. I had a whole post on it.)

Japan’s area at Epcot had the country’s arts. Anime and everything! It was so awesome!

We had dinner in Morocco and had dessert in Italia! Go Gelato!

The fireworks are really amazing! If you ever go, you always stay until closing.

The next day we went to LegoLand! Where nearly everything is made of Legos! There were roller coasters, fly-cycles, boats, cars, and horses, made of Legos! It was so cool! I even got a caricature done of me swimming!

On Tuesday, we took a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s. We watched a whole special effects sequence of Indiana Jones, took a tour through the effects behind war sequences and the factories behind dress making. It was all very interesting.  My favorite part was Star Tours, the Star Wars ride. It felt like you were really in hyperspace and flying through the galaxy!

Also at Hollywood Studios, we learned how to draw Daisy Duck, met the amazing Mickey Mouse, and greeted our friends Wreck-it-Ralph and Vanellope Von Shweetz!

Our hotel was awesome! I mean really, how many times do you get to stay at a hotel with a water slide! The staff set up a giant screen and we watched a movie in the pool!

My fat cat got even FATTER and he still woke us up for food. It seems that is all he ever wants!

Have you ever been to Orlando? What did you do there? Was it fun?

See you next time!
