Yeah, I hear you. I need to do the same for myself. Hence a couple of the pictures I'm currently working on, one of which may never show up. I also want to brush up (if you'll excuse the expression ) on my gouache and water colors.
Fun. I tried water colors while Mayaj was here, I liked them. I need to finish a picture I'm doing for a friend, but then I think I might try for a group shot of some kind. I have so much trouble with those...
Another group shot! Cool! Last group shot I did I made them look like they were posing for a school picture, but someone had made bunnie ears behind another girl's head, and someone else had untied another girl's hair ribbon. Gosh, now that I mention it, I'll have to try to find what I did with it...(pencil drawing)
I'll have to find it first... I remember the details because some of them were fun to do, and others a down right boo! Getting the characters to look like individuals and not related in anyway (because they aren't) was the biggest boo of all.
