Friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things.

This photo started off easy and got difficult quick!

Every Artist has a drawing/painting or some other piece of artwork that they are not satisfied with, This is that drawing.. It started out beautifully with me capturing my best friends features perfectly.Anyone who looked at this could tell that this was Justyne. Then I started on myself, sometimes it helps to ask others for their opinions while you draw while sometimes its better to not ask any one what they think. In my case I should not have asked for advice. Eventually i was erasing and re drawing so much the picture just looked warped. At one point my boyfriend asked me when he saw the drawing if I even like myself b/c the drawing I did of me was so hideous. Well, after  white outs and paint overs I had to settle with this image of myself. The reason why I chose to put up a picture I have VERY mixed feelings about is because I am very proud of how I did Justyne. And I wanted to encourage any other artists that we all have disappointments in our work.

This Photo was done for my boyfriend’s christmas gift! I Love You D. 🙂

I was inspired by the bright colours in this photo and the challenges of drawing a face that is tilted. I’ve always been nervous to tackle anything other than straight on but I’m glad I took this on.  My favorite kind of art to do is exactly this! I love drawing pictures of people and capturing all their likenesses.

Let me know what you all think of this comparison of the pictures, Especially those who know us will really see the likeness I tried to portray in this picture!


You fight like a married couple, you talk like best friends, you flirt like first loves, and protect each other like brother and sister, obviously its meant to be.
