Okay, I've got to start drawing my own things to be colored now, lol. I think coloring other peoples' lines is really fun, but it could become a rut if I do it too much. It was just practice, but now it's time to take what I've learned to the next step. 

So the next one might not have such nice lines, but it will be all me. XD
I'm not a great artist. But I hope to be someday. I know that's going to require more diligence than I've been able to manage in the past. Currently I'm in research mode, eating alive tutorials, videos, and books on all sorts of subjects. From perspective, to color theory, I even borrowed a home improvement color scheme book from the library to stretch my awareness of different palettes. 

With all of this studying and drawing, I'm hoping it adds up to progress. Consistency might still be a struggle for me, but I am not giving up. My updates might not be regular, but I want to share the journey that I'm on with others and that's why I'm here on DA.
Color Practice by Dae08
Color Practice
Trying to improve my coloring skills, I feel like this is progress.

Lines are from…

All done in Clip Studio (aka Manga Studio). 
Ugh. Why does all my art look like it was drawn by a twelve yer old? No offense to the lovely twelve year olds of the world.
So I'm just not a consistent person, lol. I will go crazy with something for like a month and then never speak of it again. I don't know why it is that I do this, I usually still like whatever it was that I was doing, but I just tend to find something else to occupy my time. I kind of focus on one thing at a time, and I keep changing that thing. Thank God I'm not like that with people, especially men! Haha! Anyway I'm just writing this for anyone who might manage to traipse onto my DA page and be confused at my inconsistency, not that that will happen probably. I get very few visitors, lol. I guess if I did more art and got better at it, there might be reason for someone to stop by eh? Oh well...

Art and I are currently rekindling our love affair. I hope to be posting progress here, good or bad. I want to see growth, not perfection.

Prepare for some horribleness on the way to something better.
