Day 16- Apple Bloom by RavenousDrake Day 16- Apple Bloom by RavenousDrake
Kids, this is what happens when you try too hard. It's also what happens when you don't take the time to learn how to draw before trying to take on an idea that you're not ready for.

This picture sucks, plain and simple. I had to know I'd have bad ones in with the good ones.

I'm going to come back to this idea someday and see if I can do any better.

This picture does not suck. And it is off the scale in cuteness.

Artists are always their worst critic and I say that in the most caring way possible. :) I think she's cute and will gladly take her home if you don't want her! :D

And despite what you might think, I want to congratulate you on her! And on getting her feature on Equeatria Daily, just means more eye on your work! [link] (#28)

Thanks! I think I'll keep her around- I've still got lots of work to do around my house. =P

I think I'm just my own worst critic, period. Not only in my art, but in my photography, my writing, my weight lifting... I've been told I need to lighten up, and maybe that's true...

But if I do that, I'll be satisfied with where I am, and I'll never improve. So I figure it's better to push myself and strive to improve with each endeavor.

I'm really blown away with how much attention this is getting. It's just a sketch... :confused:

My mind immediately went to Physics, the weight of the board when held up by two supports, AS is taking its toll

How does it suck? Whatever AB is trying to do, she's doing it in a cute fashion.

Actually, it looked a lot worse before I submitted it. The sawhorses were running off the edges of the page, and that's the version I stashed when I wrote the description. As a last minute effort, I erased all the edges and resubmitted it (I love Sta.sh). Guess I didn't redo the description due to laziness. :shrug: I still don't much care for it, and think I would have been better off going with something simpler.

And... she's measuring. =P I've been helping my dad renovate our house for years, and one of the rules he's taught himself is, "Measure three time, cut once." A speed square (the triangular thing) is a useful tool for making a line where you want to cut.

:iconflutterthoughtfulplz: I talk too much.
