    Yes i do! I am just behind, there is no way anyone could kill this thread. It is "the daily sketch for a reason. A learning place, an expression place. ARt is all about taking risks and pushing the safe zones, it is the only way you can improve. Failing is something i do on a regular basis even now and i usually look at my disasters as a good thing, it means i am figuring out how to do something i did not know before. Catching the mood, telling a story with one image is not an easy thing to do and you did this very well. YOur piece is better then you think it is ;):)

    Okay, I do! Smkie, I spent an hour drawing kittens today and this is what I have. Everythign I do in pastels in a small size comes out looking very.. child-like and un-detailed. But I like the color, at least. Nolan is much more blue in person.

    RD very nice indeed, hair is tricky and a lot of people have trouble with it. You did a very nice profile.

    I am soooo bad at hair. =( I know you're supposed to draw the absence of hair or something like that, but I try that and still wind up sucking! LOL.

    My old boss would lean over and tell me to squint my eyes...so you can just barely see the light and dark and draw in only that. It helped me. I got an example let me go see if i can find it.

    geez i can't find the one i want. I use to be proud of this drawing now years later i look at it and see everything i did wrong..to modeled, a little overworked, but hey the hair on the front legs still works...that is kind of what i mean. Don't draw what you know is there, but the spaces inbetween paying attention to the shadows letting the shine be known by abscense of hair lines. IF that makes any sense. IF i ever run across the one i am thinking of, it is the best i ever did but i give up. It is lost in my documents forever i guess.

    That is so cool! I want to get back into drawing but unfortunately I left all my art supplies at school. I'm going back there in a week or two to pick them up though so I can finish my pics.

    In the mean time, Josie (my 10 year old sister) really really wanted me to draw a pokemon for her. I came up with this lol!

    Okay, I'll admit. It was fun. :eek:
