My nephew Paul McMichael :iconlumpygravy:, He has a wonder graphite gallery that shows incredible progress over the past couple years! His shading style is very much like my own ( must run in the family).  Please go take a look through his gallery and witness the HUGE leap forward he has made.

I've been a Big Fan of Stefanie's artwork for years.  Although she would say otherwise, she has one of the MOST UNIQUE and recognizable styles of drawing.  I can identify one of her drawings a mile away.  She is the BEST artist around for drawing cute cartoon girls.  If you are like me and enjoy pretty cartoon girls, please check out her gallery and blog!
:icongantzaistar:   Her Blog: A Must See!!!!!

I'm Working on a Portrait Tutorial

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 26, 2010, 10:24 AM

If you go to my scrap folder, you can see that I started posting a "tutorial" of sorts, explaining some of the techniques I use when drawing a human face.  Lots of nice people have been asking me to do this for a while now.  I hope some of these tips are useful.

Artists I admire

These artists Kick HUGE portions of Ass!

I've joined DeviantArt almost 4 years ago to the day! I've finally been awarded a Daily Deviation feature!
It was for my sleeping beauty drawing, THE LEAST FAVORITE OF ALL THE DRAWINGS in my gallery.
The drawing I did at the last minute for a birthday gift, the drawing I spent the least amount of time on, one of the smallest drawings as well!  Although it's nice to be recognized, I really wish it was for a drawing I spent much more time and detail to create!  Just last week, I was going to remove THIS drawing from my gallery, along with 4 others, but I was called away from my computer.
It's kind of like being a great singer and being famous for a BURP!
Some artists I watch receive 100,000 views for a simple sketch of the quite common ANIME character holding up two fingers and winking! ( you've seen them)...and it's taken me 4 years to reach 90k views for my entire catalog of work!  Very discouraging!
Well, I hope I don't sound like a prick, but I do appreciate the DD, I only wish it was for a drawing I put my heart into!

I am very grateful to be recognized....I only feel sad that many of my drawings go un-noticed in a vast sea of mediocre digital trickery....I've been drawing my entire life, long before the introduction of the personal computer...and it is very discouraging to the traditional artist to see so much fanfare and accolades showered upon Glossy Photoshop filters and digital tracings! Please don't underestimate my appreciation!
Thank You, AunJuli :iconaunjuli:  for appreciating traditional methods of creating art.

Well, I won't be doing any drawing for a while! My hand was ripped open by a screen door handle! I had my dog on a leash and she blasted out the door, slamming my hand into the handle.The flat handle went through of my hand. It felt like being smashed by a hammer.
This sucks, I do EVERYTHING with this hand. I received 12 stitches to close it up. In 2 weeks , the stitches will come out and hopefully I can draw again! Ouch!
