Sketch Diary: Calm grace

She feels like kind of a ghost, yeah? She sees you, she understands you, and it's ok. She's not freaking out about anything. All those things about yourself that make you anxious - she gets it. She'll be there when you're ready to be calm, too.

Sketch Diary: Rainbow filter on a bellydancer

So I've been taking photos of my sketches with just my phone lately. Don't have the time or energy to whip out my DSLR everytime I do some sketches. The only real struggle with using my phone has been finding an editor app that I like. Aviary didn't work for me, several others just didn't work out. Now I'm using Fotor and so far it's pretty darn cool.  This has a nice rainbow filter on it. I use to do that sort of thing in photoshop exclusively, back in the day. Would take some 6 steps or so. Now it's just click - done. Love it.

She just looks like she's on the verge of an emotional break, yeah?

Sketch Diary: Watchin' ya through my side-eye

You know that look. Throwin' some shade. Not a lot. Just enough to let people know you're paying attention... and you don't quite approve hah. I can't remember what I was day dreaming about while I sketched this back in... June? Jeeeeez. Anyway, hope you like her.
