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!

Sore Subjects

Hello, my fine friends, and welcome to Road2Gold!

If you don’t know, I LOVE to draw! Mostly Kingdom Hearts characters! (Kingdom Hearts has the blogging floor for another day.) To stay organized, I would put all my drawings in a little blue folder. This particular folder became VERY special to me. Since it was so special, I just HAD to bring it to church one day. Yeah… shouldn’t have done that.

 

 

 

That day my folder “vanished”.

That night, I wanted to draw. (And I don’t like drawing without my folder. It just doesn’t feel right.) It was pouring. So, in my PJs, I walked into the rain to get my folder. It wasn’t there!

The next week, we looked EVERYWHERE (and I mean everywhere) for this folder.

I cried.

Months of work, gone.

I couldn’t accept it, which I still can’t.

But, this past week, I went to my friends’ house and her sister told me to draw Kairi. (From KH) After that, I couldn’t stop drawing! I just wanted to draw and draw and draw and draw and draw. (If I had the kind of time, of course.)

Unfortunately, my folder wasn’t in my hands where it SHOULD have been.

Fortunately, I took a picture of every single one of my pictures! Though I still miss that folder, I found I had improved SO much.

For example:

Riku, (yes, from KH) HE IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A CHIN! He didn’t before. Now, he does! (Yippee!)

 

 

 

That is Riku. He has a chin.

Kairi: Wow… I was a very interesting drawer then. She looks better now.

Lessons to be learned? Don’t cling to things. You could lose them. Yes, it will hurt, so have your time to be upset, and then just do it again! If you’re like me, you just might have improved.

I know you don’t want to go near it again because it brings back memories of you losing your work, (or something along those lines) But still, you need to do it again!

So, Yeah. Same for all you writers out there who have lost their work. Do it again! You DON’T want to end up like that lady:

 See?

 

 

 

 

The thing is, it’s okay to have something important in life, but don’t cling to it too much, because it could all be lost.
