NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION
...I was going to call this journal "Loki is ugly" but feared the hate-mail...
(Feel free to skip to the part that interests you)
Result of the of the "Faking" nonsense.
Last week Thursday Shadowness shared my Jessica Alba drawing on their Facebook page - which I found by pure fluke while I was killing time at work. Some genius then commented saying it's faked and made one of those infamous overlay gifs.
The gif clearly proves the drawing is real (and that I was lazy with the hair) but my troll couldn't figure that out... FAIL. What pissed me off is that these days you're not "innocent until proven guilty", you're guilty whether you can prove your innocence or not. Fortunately, in my case, the argument was over almost instantly. For that I would like to thank all those who commented on the pic: Christina, Maria, Meks, Becky, Aty and my husband.
...THE RESULT: so now you all look like you're talking to yourselves because the dude removed his comment.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE:
He also inboxed me an apology.
The kid really deserves a cookie for that though. Not many people can admit they are wrong and even less would apologize. It does show a massive amount of character.
The comments are still on my Shadowness but whatever I'm over it.
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT COMMENTED ON MY POLL TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. It really did and I appreciate it. Still have some replies to do but I'll get there.
Here are the details for you to be part of my drawing tutorial. I've tried to come up with a way to practically teach how to improve your drawing skill by using one of your own drawings.
This (the first tutorial) will be for graphite pencils.
It will be open to all my watchers.
You (my watchers) will draw a piece to the best of your ability at this time.
Comment on this journal and give me the link to your drawing and the link to your reference (you can also load your reference to your scraps)
You can draw absolutely anything you want as long as you provide me with the reference.
You may use an existing drawing (it doesn't have to be new)
ONE drawing per watcher please.
I will feature all the drawings in my journal.
I will choose one at the end of May.
Then I will do a tutorial on that piece by drawing over a printout of it to show you how I do it.
...and then hopefully everyone will see it's not magic!
Sooo I have a cold or flu something, something. Totally not impressed since I want to cosplay this Saturday at Free Comicbook Day. I'm going as Daenerys... if nothing else it'll be good for a laugh. I'll post pics.
I am busy working on a drawing but I have so much other nonsense taking up my time that I haven't had the time to finish it and next week ain't lookin' good either. Bummer.
I had more I wanted to say but I need to get back in bed
