If you've kept any sort of tabs on my gallery, you might've noticed I haven't uploaded anything in quite some time! I could list the reasons why I haven't drawn in so long, but honestly, I feel it boils down to two factors: My self-esteem when it comes to my art and the fact I've allowed myself to become such a "lazy" artist. I used to joke about that fact, but it's kinda.. grown stale at this point. I'd like to change both, but the one thing I'd really like to change more than anything is the frequency of how often I do draw and upload. I know I'm rather out of practice and I know I could benefit greatly by some tutorials on how to draw certain aspects of my art I think I have challenges with and would like to improve. I also think by watching other tutorials on drawing could benefit as seeing things from a different perspective couldn't hurt, right? Maybe I'd see something or some things I hadn't seen before.  

My question for you guys is, do you happen to have any suggestions on videos or tutorials on basic/advanced drawing techniques? Maybe there's an artist you know that does frequent tutorials that you find helpful or the same, but they are a youtuber. I'm happy to take any/all suggestions you guys might have! I'm also open to the suggestions of books, especially if you can find them online for free.

Another thing I'd like to work on is my colouring abilities. I don't colour much at all because I've never liked what I could offer and found whenever I did decide to take the chance of colouring something it really was like rolling the dice; either I liked how it came out or "ruined" a drawing by doing so. Confidence on colouring more is something I could also greatly use!

I'm really hoping that this is more than the start of a hopeful New Year's resolution as I have missed drawing quite a bit and feel I can make this happen, but really want to start from the ground up. I need a fresher and of course LOTS of practice. I'd also like to get back into drawing as I owe a special someone A TON of backlogged commissioned artwork; they've been a total saint with their patience but I've avoided/procrastinated long enough.

Any suggestions you guys have is deeply appreciated. Also, I'd like to thank those of you that have stuck around this long. I really do appreciate it more than you might know. :) Thanks for putting up with this lazy housecat guys!

In the event I don't get around to saying this, I wish you all a wonderful, warm and safe holiday season. Whatever you celebrate (or even if you don't) I hope it's the best it can be and 2019 is prosperous and generous to you all. Best wishes and all that good, mushy stuff!

OH MY SWEET CHRIST. :rose: I got your package today, Kat! Thank you so much!! I was way blown away by it. It came at a really good time, too, especially since the job loss thing. I'm going to write you a letter over the course of the next week, you are such a sweetie. (I want to just respond to your letter right now but I also want to leave some stuff to write in there. the strain!)
I'm glad life is being kinder to you near the end of the year, and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2016 if I don't get your letter sent back to you before then!

I wasn't aware of what happened with your jerb and whatnot -- I'm so sorry to hear it! I guess I must've been psychic or something to foresee that a good friend needed a care package sent their way. :) You are most welcomed for everything! I got your card yesterday! The first thing that came out of my mouth was "KITTY"; loved the cute cat card. ^_^ Write when you can -- I'm still looking for that letter I KNOW I started for you. Dx  Please take care of yourself. xoxo
