I realized last night that I didn't finish a new drawing in over 7 months. Last time I posted something was Wandering Spirit back in January.

I barely draw. And it's not because I don't have ideas. I do. I lack motivation and assurance. I see other artists on the different sites and instead of giving me that little boost and think that I can be as good as them. I lose my confidence and the interest in drawing. Or when I do actually draw, I'm not satisfied with what I'm doing and get frustrated.

Why is it so complicated sometimes?

Otherwise, last week I bought 2 new sketch books and some charcoal pencils. The first one is for graphite pencils (11"x14"). I needed a paper that was in-between my 2 other books. One that I have I find it too big, and the one I'm currently working with is not wide enough. Now the problem is solved. I only wish that I could transfer some of my WIPs on this one.

The second book is for charcoal pencils (9"x12"). It's really small, and I'll need to adjust myself when I try it out. It was the only size that was available in the Strathmore series. To go with the sketch book I got 3 pencil charcoals. Soft, medium and hard. I don't know this brand, but they were the only one with a thin tip, shape of a pencil and woodless. I'm excited at trying those out!

I said a couple of weeks ago there would be some change here? Here's the announcement of those "news"! I decided to create a community here on LiveJournal for my artwork. That way people wouldn't need to friend this journal and have all the random updates that I make here if they only wish to follow my art. Plus, even non-LJ user can comment, so I thought it was good option. Ideally, I would prefer having my own website and domain, but that's for future plan! I'm going one step at a time. I'm still a little newbie into the art world! There's a lot that I need to learn.

Where can you find my community?
