Summerrrr time!

Summer is keeping me occupied but not in the ways I would have hoped for.. I'm working a lot and trying in vain to find the time to balance everything I am doing with time to learn the skills I require! On the plus side however, I am at least still drawing (something?)

More desperate attempts at finding out how I want to express myself and what I want to draw from my observations... My tendency to fuss over needless details and to 'copy' from reality is not lessening with the haste I would like! and I still don't know where I want to go, stylistically or otherwise... :S the path to self betterment is a steep, almost vertical climb. When I learn to dispel some negativity I may relax more... possibly ;D Meanwhile, I will have the Olympics to keep me excited and inspired; so. much. talent and skill.

Anyways, a mix of observational with some improvised character stuff (which needs genuine research!). I am no natural character designer! ...meh, 'if you judge a fish by its' ability to climb a tree it will spend its' life believing it is stupid' <a nice bit of Einstein to dry the dampness of pessimism! Also, the two bird studies are from taxidermy birds, not from LIFE!
