I got some Woodless Pencils from PalettefulPacks. I haven't exactly figured out how to blend them, but I like 'em.

CW: Selfie, eye contact 

Haven't done a in a while. Happy everyone! Is it time to get a haircut yet?

I haven't painted anything in a while, but I've been slowly filling a sketchbook with pencil sketches.
Here's a couple!

When I originally posted this on my radtown account nobody thought it was as funny as I did. I assume that's still true.

I took this picture yesterday on my way out of town. And like, I assume it's a Trump supporter because of the handwriting, but it could just as well be a disgruntled leftist.

Milestone Brag:

I recently hit a full year on my Duolingo streak.
(I won't lie, I used a handful of streak freezes here and there, but still... 365 days of Deutsch.)

Maybe next time I'll paint someone with their eyes open.

Trying a colored pencil portrait today.
It's not perfect, but I feel like I learned a bunch for next time!

I posted this a couple days ago, but I just got a colorless blending pencil, and smoothed out all the blue on her dress, and I think it makes a huge difference!
