I am currently taking a class called “Visual Communications”, which apparently is the very first foundation class people take when they go to an art school.  The purpose of this class is to train you so that you are confident with your lines and won’t need to scribble too much while sketching.
Our first week’s homework is training on hand stability.  I’ve heard a lot of artists complain that they have “shaky hands” and so when they ink their drawings, it comes out crap, so I thought I’d share my homework with you guys.
Draw a line about 2 inch long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Draw a line about half a page long, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Draw a line from one end of the page to the opposite end, as straight as you possibly can without a ruler.  Go over this line EIGHT times without making the line any thicker.  Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Repeat the above exercise, but with an arc, and then with a wave.
We’re supposed to do this every day before we draw as a warm-up.  Basically just keep drawing lines, arcs, and waves until you fill up an entire 8.5x11 page.  Use felt-tip pens like microns/multiliner/sharpie.  Keep doing this for the rest of your drawing life and your inking will get significantly better.

Here, people who have trouble making smooth lines in their work:  do this, and your penstroke will be as confident as ever.

Guess who came back from the trip ♪

I just got home and boy is it great to be back. I had a very fluffy welcome, cats started purring and headbutting me immediately ♥

Saint Petersburg was lovely. Sadly I don’t feel like I got to enjoy it fully; we were walking everywhere all the time everyday and pretty much only took glances at all the places (with few exceptions, like Winter Palace where we at least went inside). Besides, as it turned out, my ‘walking shoes’ weren’t made for walking so I managed to destroy my feet and they were hurting like hell the whole stay (thankfully we bought a new pair which eased the pain a bit :’>).

Well, at least I got to experience and see Peter even a bit for the few days we were there. And I bought a couple of things: a bunch of magnets, a beautiful hair clip, a decorative plate and Derwent’s burnisher and blender. And a bottle of vodka. And some sweets from the ship (I didn’t have much time or power due to my feet to go get some in Peter)

Overall, I got really good vibes from Saint Petersburg and it’d be great to go there again but with friends. And possibly when it’s not so damn hot. ;;;;

You can always do tight drawings on paper and then color them digitally. Or do the lineart digitally on top of the pencil drawings. But yeah it definitely takes the practice and passion to do digital art. <3 :3 And you’re veryw elcome~

Yep, that’s what I’ve usually done. :> Art is seriouz businezz, no matter if it’s digital or traditional or what tools one uses. 

And here’s some smooches for you

It takes a while to get used to the tablet. (trust me though your stuff looks 100x better than when I was first getting used to the tablet lol). But your style goes so go with the coloring, it looks so soft and fun!

Haha, it sure does. I’ve had my little tablet for, like, 6 or 7 years now and I still don’t feel comfortable drawing with it (though I had a long pause using it, plus I don’t draw regularly with it). I’m kinda in symbiosis with my pencils and papers and drawing with tablet doesn’t feel ‘right’ for me so I’ve thought to stick to colouring with it for now. Personally I’d like to focus more on traditional art but it’d be nice to handle digital art to some extent, there are so many great artists (like you, hon hon) who draw and paint so well digitally I can’t help but look up them and want give it a try.

Thanks, Moo! You certainly made me want to try more. ´v`)

omg you need to do more digital art! :O

Y-you think so? ;v; I guess I’m slowly getting a hang of this, I found a couple of brush settings I’m comfortable with. I’m not that good at drawing with tablet but colouring is fun. ♪

Perhaps I should seriously invest some time for it in the future so that every picture I colour on the computer won’t be as half-assed as the older ones.

I wanted to try doing digital art a bit before I hit the road and this despondence's cutie became the victim. I&#8217;m actually quite happy with the result what is this.
