Last late Winter/early Spring, when we were still living in Canada, I began to practice my art. Not just little doodles, but seriously practicing my art. After years of people telling me that I should learn how to shade, how to draw at different angles, and so on, I finally broke down and admitted that my art wasn’t exactly awesome, and that if I practiced, I could get a lot better. (Because at the time, I still drew like a seven-year-old.)
So after a pep-talk from a great Internet-friend who draws a lot, I began to draw for at least fifteen minutes a day. But I was getting really into it as I discovered the joys of shading and whatnot, so that it was taking me much longer than fifteen minutes as I tried to produce something good. I got so carried away during those next few months, that by the time that Summer came around, I had completely forgotten my little fifteen-minute goal, because I was drawing everyday anyways.
But by now it’s been about a year since I first started, and I thought that I would post some of my drawings, starting from when I first started really trying–to my most newest ones. I don’t remember the exact dates that they were drawn, though.

I think that’s enough for one blog post.
However, I do hope that this might inspire those people out there who have some artistic ability, but don’t know how to start practicing. Practice might not make perfect, but it will make a lot better.
Fifteen minutes a day.
