My goal is to have the skills to communicate my ideas perfectly. I'm already a very skilled writer, but for too long I've kept myself from learning to express myself visually. I've been afraid of failure and embarrassment, and that's kept me from practising or trying new things. I've been unsure where to start, and used that as an excuse to put it off.

Here and today I throw the gauntlet down and say, "Self, you will do this. You will learn." I hope to gather as much knowledge and inspiration from this wonderful community as possible, and by and by to improve my own work until one day I can see it and think, "Wow. I did that."

Wish me luck!

Last night, I took some spare time between Christmas preparations to paint "Big Thoughts" from an old photo of my kitty Beignet. Within a few moments of posting it, I got a nice surprise: lots of feedback. At the moment it has thirteen comments and fifty-five favourites --  that's more than I've ever gotten for anything, and in such a short time! I can't thank everyone enough for your encouragement. You've all truly made my day.

Merry Christmas!

No problem! I've been sifting through and collecting resources to teach myself how to draw and paint digitally (because I can't afford school.) I like how methodical your process for finding a skin tone is, especially because I am a complete beginner and don't have the natural sense that many tutorials assume that you have. So thank you!

(By the way, has anyone ever told you that you look like Craig Horner?)

Craig who? Is that a good thing? I'm all self taught myself, so I'm always scouting for good tutorials myself.

Don't worry, it's a good thing. Congratulations, you look like Craig Who! Well, I'm certainly impressed by your work, so that's encouraging to know. It's rough, especially in getting the photoshop brushes to do what I want them to do. I guess that just comes down to experimentation and practice, though.
