Digital Self Portrait

A digital self portrait from July 2014. I had a little fun taking an old pen drawing of mine and putting it in the computer, using Photoshop (with a mouse) to edit it, add color, and trace some linework in.

I got crafty this Christmas! I thought school would interfere with my making Christmas presents, but it actually wound up being a great motivator, because painting and crafting sounded waaay more appealing than dealing with school projects. As far as forms of procrastination go, I couldn't complain.

For one of the presents I crafted, I painted a set of wooden coasters for my second oldest sister. (As opposed to the set of coasters I painted for my fourth oldest sister a couple of years ago.) I left the sides and backs of this set blank, which saved me a lot of time; I actually finished the painting in one day! Although a lot of that was because I was having so much fun with them.
