I took on a challenge today...removing 4 bushes from my front yard! I thought it would be easy....boy was I wrong! When I finish the yard work I'll post the before and after pics. I felt the need to finish something since it has been quite a while. So I did Hell Girl....heehee!;O) I colored it in Photoshop and realized I forgot how to use it.:o( Very upsetting! I guess I need to focus on animation anyways....Animation Mentor I'm comin for you!!!!;O) This post isn't even close to the potential I have and I know it. Again...very upsetting! Glad I stuck something all the way thru. I know I need to finish more stuff...such a rarity. I will try to every other least that's what I plan now. Of course this isn't considering how hectic it's gonna be when school starts. So maybe not.....we'll see. Anyways, gotta work this weekend so won't post till at least Monday night.:O( Thanks everyone for lookin and leavin comments.....means a lot to me!;O) Till next time....PEACE!!!!!

Not a bad day! I feel a lot better and I got new toys!;O) G-Force baby!!! A couple of new people looked at my blog....put a smile on my face! Thanks any and everybody for lookin! I have found sooo much motivation in the past couple of days surfin people's blogs. It's amazing how many great artists are out there! Probably why not many people stop by mine. :O( In due time I guess. Worked on poses.....can't express enough how difficult and intimidating it is to me. I'll stick to the theory of practice...practice...and more practice helps you get better. ;O) Gotta work this weekend.....phhhhbbbbttt!!!

EDIT: Decided not to post my lame stick figures....heehee Too many pics to take!! I'm doin a lot of sketchin this weekend. As you can see, the fascination I have with the face is still evident.;O) And you can tell I've been watching cartoons........any guesses as to which one? heehehee I bought a brand new lawn mower today.....*sob*. I wish they weren't so expensive! Anyways, gotta run! Till next post......PEACE!!!

Our lawn mower decided to break down again!! Second 1 in 2 years!!! The replacement part is so expensive that we're better off buying a new 1!!!!! Don't that suck!! We went k-mart hoping to find a cheap one but to our surprise they had 3 expensive ones left. Go figure!! Anyways, we didn't get one so instead I bought some new toys!! It was a good way to take my mind off the frustration! heehee They're gonna look great in my office!;O) Anyways, will try to post some of my lame sketches I did last night.( I worked on poses with stick figures)EEEEWWWWW!!! They were so bad!! Anywho, till next time....PEACE!!!!
