Shi'ran - You Want A Piece of Me Redraw
This was a pretty cool commission from   shiran.zyon of a picture he got from me over a year ago, redrawn with my current skill level. Boy is there a difference. x.x; Took me over 3 days on and off but got there in the end.

Now to do 2 big commissions after this. Hopefully I'll get it all done before I go on holiday x.x;

Hey gorgeous lassie! I was thinking of you for a bit just a little while! I wonder about how well are you! Did I have you on facebook?................. I'm stuck up in my life in the same place and same environment for the past six months too long now and haven't a clue thinking how to be an escape artist for some time... Do you make money by doing this? I want to be inspired by you cuz I'm only a beginner, idk what to do with my life, would you help?

Hello there, I am honoured to be in someone else's thoughts but do know that sounded a little creepy to read in the morning ^^;
I am doing pretty well though, thank you for asking, and I don't know if I've seen you on facebook. If you'd like to add me, my FB
is taala.ruhun.

I'm sorry you feel so stuck, but using drawing as a means of distraction from your environment is a good idea! ^^
I make a very small amount of money off my art, since it is based purely on commission work. Sometimes I try to
sell at conventions as well. I'm happy you think of me as an insipiration creatively so, I'll offer some art advice.

1. Practice drawing everyday, doesn't matter if it's doodles or full on or even if it comes out bad, just keep drawing.
2. Learn to draw from still life, I took life drawing classes for some time (and plan to again) because it really helped me
understand more how objects work from life to paper.
3. Use plenty of references, sometimes I even draw over a pose but then correct and shape it so it doesn't look awkward.
It's all about understanding and learning from a reference, not merely copying it.
4. Be patient, being a good artist doesn't take overnight, it takes years and years...and even then a professional artist will say 'drawing is difficult'.
5. Enjoy drawing art! This is the most important one because if you love your own art, chances are other people will too.

That is the best pieces of advice I have ever typed. Some of that I need to even remember myself sometimes ^^;
So I hope that has given you a starting point to be an artist :D

I've read and then copied your notes down. I'll have a ponder about ways I can push myself further from my current artistic or creative drawing skills... Thank you :) my experiences in living a life can be hard for me also... With lots of weaknesses could be a serious problem for me that became a bad burden so that I might be depressed :( how to take heart and pick oneself up in resilient strength when one falls down and lost faith or grace? There are things in real life you don't see are obstacles that stops you from having this positive feeling to pick up yourself to do a thing you love doing the most again in any work etc... So yeah.
