Sorry I've been away....

So...yeah. I am a HORRIBLE procrastinator!!! I mean, I sometimes know I am doing it but I just can't help it. From now on, I am going to work so much harder to try and keep up with drawing jobs, filming my YouTube videos and keeping up with this blog! So, to start off this new "procrastination killer time" is my new blog featuring my newest drawing!

This drawing was my entry into a contest for the cover for a book called "The Obsidian Phoenix" by A.M. Jandia. I read the book and I really loved it. Unfortunately for me, I did not win the cover contest but it's alright. The winner did an amazing cover! If it were me, I'd choose that other cover than the cover I did. I am nowhere near as good as an artist as the winner of the contest. I get my inspiration from watching those kinds of artists on DeviantArt. I keep telling myself that to get to the place I want to be is to practice, practice, PRACTICE! I mean, who hasn't heard the cliche (but completely accurate) saying, "practice makes perfect"?

It's going to be a while before I can be as good as I want to be but until then...I will enjoy what I can do now. I mean, I actually like this drawing. I usually never like anything that I do. I don't know why. My Mom always tells me that an artist is their own worst critic. That is extremely true in my case. People tell me all the time how "good" I am but all I see is, "I need to improve on this" or "I need to be able to draw like that". is my latest drawing.
