When I draw now it is like letting go and accepting possible failure.

I’m not really sneaking up on the proportions by doing some preliminary lines or big block-in, I’m going right for detail from the start. This could either turn out really good or fail miserably.  Luckily most of my drawing today of Shannon went very well. The last one was a bit bad but I only think it was because I was getting tired.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
