I love ballet. I danced since I was three years old until I was 27, and then, after kids I did it again for about four years in my thirties. I am over four decades now and still wished I was dancing. And I will, one day. You're never too old. I love drawing ballerinas because I love ballet so much and are always looking for good ideas to draw.

I like my recent ballerina because it's her back. I usually draw front or side and this one was a challenge to me. Especially the shoes. The shoes, which I think look beautiful in my final version, are my favorite thing. I like to be able to get some sort of physical feeling when I draw. I don't know, sometimes it all feels wrong, but sometimes it is just right, that's how I feel about this one's shoes.

I also tried a different tool this time and I moved the setting of the blur tool to have it very, very small and be able to control color better. 

And then there's the bar. I didn't know what to do about the bar. I ended up doing five rectangles, each one changing color to show three dimensionality. I'm pleased with it. It makes me happy.

Would love to get some love!
I had a great boost in my self-confidence today and I thought I'd start my journal.
I don't draw/create art often, but when I do, I'll talk about it here. Fun!

Soooo, I am drawing another ballerina. From the back. Excited! Then I'm planning on coloring it with ArtStudio.

When I'm done, I want to color this other one I made about two years ago.

Fun times!

See? That's all! That wasn't that hard at all.

I don't see how this would benefit me... I'm not worth it.
I think artists are cool... I have always wanted to be an artist... or be cool.
Oh, well.
One day, when I publish my stories, people will understand who these characters I draw are.

Of course, odds are people won't even like them.

I'm probably as good in writing as I am an artist.

I want to draw another ballerina. I know I'm not very good at it, but I can't get better if I don't practice.
Of course, you may wonder... where is said ballerina?
I often log in and see this empty space.

Thought I would write something.
