can't get better if you never practice

I very much love Garcia Flynn. Definitely too much. We don’t deserve a character so complex and tragic. But also yes I do. Give me more. I earned this. I’ve sat through so many black and white characters. Give me all those shades of gray.

As for the group picture near the end, you know I’m on the Lucy is Flynn’s wife train. All aboard. I will hold out for this until they blatantly tell me no. Probably not even then really. And if it isn’t true, boy, do I have enough observations and theories to make a kickin AU.

Please remember that the artists that you see who are talented and successful didn’t get there overnight. They didn’t wake up yesterday and say “I’ve never held a pencil in my life. I’m gonna sell art!” And you won’t be able to do that either. They worked hard and lost sleep. They learned and practiced what they loved until they got where they are now and they’re still working to get better because that’s how art works. You will improve but it’s not going to happen overnight. Everyone started somewhere, don’t rush it.

Drawing on my face attempt #2:  Better.  I bought stuff specifically for the task.  Yay Big Lots. (I had a few choices for eyebrow pencils–blonde, light brown, or henna.  I chose the one that sounded like the most fun… That’s how one makeups, right?)  I looked at a grand total of two demonstration/tutorials.  I’ll look at more later…

IT’S SO WEIRD HAVING EYEBROWS.

I’m still waffling over nail polish or not. I mean, my hobbies sometimes include sandpaper and acetone…
