With my new blogging schedule, I decided to make Friday the day that I show you what I’ve been working on during the week, and let you know about any random things that are going on in my life.


Here are the sketches I’ve done this week:

Ren from the short anime Shelter.


Random sketch of a male face.  I used a reference sketch I found on Pinterest.

I really need to work on drawing men’s faces, because normally I draw them too feminine or young-looking.


Random female face drawing.



I’m thinking of doing a weekly vlog where I go over what went on this week. Basically, it would be an overview of what I blog about during the week.  I think it might be kind of fun, but we’ll see what I have time for.


With my new blogging schedule, I’ll be taking the weekend off, so I will see you again on Monday!  Have a great weekend, everyone!



Happy New Year, all you wonderful people!  I am happy to say that the holiday rush is now over.  Due to all the madness involving birthdays and holidays, I’m usually busy from October to the beginning of January.  I can finally breath again!



I actually played at least two hours of Minecraft today, as a way of celebrating my freedom. (I’m doing some terraforming and building a pretty cool mountain fortress in an AMAZING single player world I created.  If you’re interested in getting the seed, just mention it in the comments below.)



One of my 2018 goals is to finish purging my house.  I use the basic principles of the KonMari tidying method.  This means that I only keep what I love, or what is actually useful.  I also have keepsake boxes, which are probably too numerous to conform to the KonMari method.  Anyway, I actually get really excited about purging, it’s just I don’t always have time for it.  But this year, I want to purge the whole house, and also sell a bunch of stuff on eBay.



I realized that I definitely do not meet my own standards of acceptable skills in drawing human anatomy, so this year I want to focus on drawing people a lot more.  I’ll probably be posting my sketches on my Instagram account, if you want to follow me there.  I’m also really bad at drawing male faces, so that’s something else for me to work on.



I’m currently finishing up an “Essential Oil Image Bundle” series.  I have three more to go, and I’ll be taking a break from the essential oil art.  I’m posting the image downloads on Etsy, and I’ll also post some photos on Instagram, Twitter, and Behance.  If the essential oil image bundles get some attention, I may create more of them in the future.  The one I’m working on right now is lavender, which is kind of fun.  It’s always fun deciding which elements involving each essential oil to include.



I’m trying to work on proper time management and delegation of tasks, because currently it is very difficult to find time for working on art.  I might also try meal planning, which saves time and money.



I plan on losing 20 lbs this year, which will get me very close to my goal weight.  I started eating healthier this holiday season, but in 2018 I want to improve on that even more.


Well, it’s getting late, so that’s it for now!  I hope you all have a wonderful 2018, and if you have any goals for this year, I’d love if you would mention them in the comments!  Happy New Year!
