So I’ve recently started watching and reading pretty much anything to do with the anime Fullmetal Alchemist. While watching it one night, I decided I wanted to draw the protagonist, Edward Elric. This is a mixture of drawing pencils, colored pencils, and sharpies.
This is an eye I drew while on the MAX (public transit train) on the way to the mall one afternoon. I colored it the next day in school. Like I said in my post I draw a lot…. I really draw anywhere and everywhere. Please keep in mind that this was drawn while on a bumpy rail track and colored on paper meant for sketching, not coloring (that’s why the color is kind of blotchy).
I draw a lot. I have a lot of drawings in a of of different places. I know I should probably keep them all in one place, but I have them scattered through out my house, in different bags, multiple notebooks and sketchbooks, and others I have given to friends as gifts. As I wonder around my house, I find random drawings of random things from different stages in my life. I go through phases where I draw one thing over and over and over in different poses, positions, colors, and places. Everywhere. Homework. Notebooks. Textbooks (haha… guilty…). Sketch pads. Everywhere. Eventually I get over it and move onto the next obsession, but every now and again, I’ll find one from a few years back and I’ll start drawing it again. So I will post a drawing when I find it, and I happen to be close to scanner. Just remember that just because I don’t post it, doesn’t mean I don’t have it. It’s usually just lost in my sea of drawings. (I also might not post it because it’s too big to fit on my scanner….) So yeah. That’s what I do. Enjoy!
Faith Project for Young Women Personal Progress February 2, 2012
This is the pencil drawing of Jesus I drew for my Faith project for church.
Project Name: Faith
Project Goal: To complete my Personal Progress for LDS Young Women’s program
Project Narrative: So I’ve been working really hard to complete my Personal Progress for my LDS girls church group. I had finished six of the total seven of the value groups (individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue) except for the Faith project. I had to spend at least 10 hours on each project. This one took me about 14 hours. I managed to get most of it out and done in one night. That only took around seven hours. The rest of it was trying to darken the background over the next few days. I finally gave up on trying to make it any darker and called it good. This is the finished product.
Last year for Christmas, my mom got it professionally scanned and made prints on nice paper. We bought frames and sent them to family members and close friends as Christmas presents.
