004. update - visual journal + art projects  
Hi guys!

This year I'm required to keep a visual journal for drawing class yay.
I've always wanted to work on one of those journals but have never gotten around to it. So this year, I finally have a reason to!

I finally got one and am having lots of fun with it + it's a good way to get me to draw regularly. As I'm interested in architecture, portraits and the like, but have 0 creativity regarding anything else, it'll most likely be filled with random sketches of cute people and buildings that catch my attention... none of that edgy/colorful stuff all the cool kids are doing sadly. Prepare to be bored to death.

Anyways, the other day I drew a couple pictures of Toda Erika from KagiHeya (cuz she's hella cute fight me) so I'll leave you with those ^^

Besides this journal affair, I'm working on a big (dimension-wise) anatomy project at the moment as my final for this unit. The theme is "quotidian life and the human body" and - of course - I managed to slip Arashi into it somehow, I can't that their my muses xP

What I'm donna do, basically, is using a picture of Nino (from More - he always looks so good on their photoshoots, like can he not), as a reference for an A2 page spread. I'll be working with charcoal and oil pastels, which I love to the moon and back. I was heavily influenced by Hope Gangloff during the whole planning process, do check her out she's really cool.

I don't have any photos of this one yet but this is the reference I'm using, it's one of my favorite photos of Nino ever - its sober, simple but the warm and homey atmosphere really appeals to me.

Well, that's all folks, I'll be posting updates on these projects whenever possible ^^.

kisses <3

Srsly? That makes me rly happy, and the same goes for you of course! ^^

IKR? It's impossible to not want to draw them when they look like that lol
No but honestly, the more I get to know them the more they appeal to me visually-speaking yknow, it's definitely not just about how cute they are, though it helps of course hehe <3

Ah thanks again :D
