Gee, it sure is boring around here…

In lieu of photoshop, I’ve taken up painting and drawing in my spare time. Granted, most of my paintings and drawings aren’t very good, but it’s nice to have a ~creative outlet~ .

I drew a rose, based on this photo. Of all my mediocre crap that reeks of no experience, it’s turned out to be the best thing. It was all a matter of shading~

But due to my dumb scanner, it doesn’t scan correctly (way overexposed) and I can’t post it. I tried to adjust it at LunaPic (ha, ha!) but nothing could save it. D:

However, I do have today a painting of my Shining Stars parrot, Parry Grant.

This scanned badly too, but I was able to fix it up. A little…

It’s just as much a drawing as it is a painting; I began by drawing an outline in regular pencil and adding his furry texture by drawing many small lines with colored pencil. After that, I simply watercolored over the whole thing. Oh! I also used glitter glue to add the shiny applique on his foot. (That last detail looks better in person.)

It looks like this in real life.

Anyways, this is my new favorite song.
