Impressive, NesteaDrinker! I hope to get back into drawing and maybe make it a career so your diary is cool to read! :)

Hey!

Saw you're working to improve your drawing skills, and just wanted to recommend a community to join- learning is always faster/better when together! Look up "ArtProf", they have weekly streams and an amazing discord community. Also, Ethan Becker's discord channel is also highly active (though much more industry-oriented...).

Cheers!

10th June:

- todays practice was a little lighter

- I was revisiting drawing noses and lips for the completionist sake

- Next week plan is to revisit how to draw hair and lineweight and apply it to next breakdowns

- I will probably reduce the amount of breakdowns Im going to do in total. I feel good about my progress so far and I don't want to waste my time. I just feel in my bones that I need a new challenge.
