My drawing of Bryn

Look what I drew! It’s my interpretation Bryn. She is speaking to a character you have yet to meet. Hee hee, spoilers.

A many step tutorial of a feminine face. (You have no idea what you getting yourself into)

step 1

Step 1: You begin with a simple circle, nothing to fancy ya’ know

Step 2

Step 2: Use curved lines to determine were the person is facing, and were the middle of the face is.

Step 3

Step 3

Step 3: Now draw the actual head. remember that the head is not a perfect circle or oval.

Step 4

Step 4

Step 4: The neck is a series off two slightly curved lines. Don’t make the neck to thick or thin. Add a slightly tilted line to determine were shoulders will be.

Step 5

Step 5

Step 5: shoulders are usually semicircles, but are often different due to emotion or gender.

Step 6

Step 6

Step 6: Now I begin with with the face. I most always start with the nose. When drawing the nose I will end up with many different types and styles, this ones more of a button type nose.

Step 7

Step 7

Step 7: The lips are comprised of three lines. the very top line defines the top lip, and the bottom defines the bottom lip.

Step 8

Step 8

Step 8: Next I use eyebrows to help define were the eyes will be. You might find that many artists disagree with me, but I don’t know. I should probably go ask one.

Step 9

Step 9

Step 9: The eyes are usually the hardest step, and one that I still have trouble on. Just remember eyes are not perfect. They have two defined points.

Step 10 (oh no. we've gotten into double digits)

Step 10 (oh no. we’ve gotten into double digits)

Step 10: step back and look at your drawing so far. Change anything you think needs changing.

Step 11

Step 11

Step 11: begin sketching hair to define hair type and style. This hair style is thick and straight, I used a series of straight but relatively curved lines.

Step 12

Step 12

Step 12: finish with hair. I have found that hair is not one large mass, so I attempt to separate it into multiple locks.

I’m not going to show you the lined version (it looks like poop, as most linings do) but I will show you the fully colored version.

a Strange and Accurate overview of Myself

We all have the moments when we’re thinking something and then you blurt it out, and everyone slowly turns to look at you. their eyebrows raised in a silent, what is wrong with this chick, sort of look.

well a lot of things are wrong with this chick.

First! before we begin, I’m not going to tell you everything because I rightly don’t trust the internet.

And so we begin. . .

My whole life I’ve been fed on science fiction and fantasy novels, and an assortment of Japanese anime. So I’m only nautrally a total geek. Thanks to anime, I became inspired to begin drawing. My favorite thing to draw happens to be girls, and I hate to draw arms and hands.

My life’s been full of ups and downs, punctuated by frequent anxiety and panic attacks. I usually solve them by taking deep breaths and drawing, or talking to my friend that shares my problems. I try not to let them take over, but some times they do, and I end up having a good cry during them.

Over all I’m a giant nerd, who reads a book a day (a story for a different time). I hope you have a good day today.

Jenny Lawson, also known as The Bloggess

So today I went to the book signing of Jenny Lawson’s new book Furiously Happy. It was amazing meeting one of my favorite authors of all time.

I drew a picture of her and gave it to her today. She was so happy about getting it, I couldn’t stop smiling myself.  Through the whole experience I had the Bloggess’s (is that right?) new book pressed tightly to my chest excitedly, laughing, and crying as she read to the crowd of hungry onlookers the first and second chapter of her book. Currently I’m exhausted, and lying on the couch happily typing away about my day.

But I recommend Jenny Lawson’s previous book; Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. It’s so brutally honest, it will make you laugh so hard you might just choke on your own laughter. But I don’t no if that’s possible. The books will also make to want to find the author, and smother her in hugs because she knows exactly what your going through. I highly recommend.
