Everyone once in awhile I realize that I'm not really trying very hard to improve my artistic abilities. I just settle into my current jobs and don't push myself. But then I kick myself and get all gung ho about the ways that I want to practice and improve. And shortly after that I poop out on myself until the realization hits again. But for RIGHT THIS SECOND, I'm working on it.
I drew this for Illustration Friday - this week's theme is "stuffed".
I forced myself to draw the whole thing on my Surface - which my mom gave me over a year ago for the specific purpose of drawing. I've been lazy and have gotten so used to drawing with my mouse at my desktop that it felt weird drawing on a screen again. But the goal is to get good at both. And then I'll start drawing with my toes and see how that goes. Because I'm all about realistic goals here.
