Because I finally achieved it

Saturday, January 15, 2011

I had been wanting to draw people all my life, but it just never worked. I didn't know what I was doing wrong, but whenever I tried to draw a person I totally failed. 

Yesterday, I tried again. What happened brought me extreme joy:
Yes, her neck is longer then your average person, yes her hands are looking kind of weird, and yes, I did date it 12.14.2011 (the year's not my problem, it's the month!), and yes, her eyes are kind of... not straight, but I'm proud of what I did. Seriously, I've wanted to do this since I knew what drawing was. 

And guess what? I achieved it because I stayed focused and I didn't give up, because I knew what I wanted to do, and I wasn't going to let myself give up.

And now I can show people what my characters look like, because I can create them not only in my mind, in my words, but also with lines.

Don't ever let yourself tell you that you can't do it--because you can, you just have to find the strength inside yourself.

    Your "attempt" turned out great. Ack - I tried my thumb at drawing yesterday.
