Oh, that's a good way to do it as well, I know I do sometimes use photos as reference when I'm unsure about how to draw something ^-^ Even though, most of the time it's me trying to draw someone else's character, so I'd print the reference sheet, and practice drawing it, until I'm more confident, then I'd go for the actual drawing ^-^

Oh, that makes sense ^-^ The one with the fox I think you have the longest now, right? The canine faces you draw look all fine now .. I would say you could work on propostions and anatomy now, but at least from what I can see from your raccoon ID, you're doing quite well on that already too ^-^

Hehe, so you're actually American? I thought you mostly lived in Poland, and took classes there too .. aaand kind of wondered how you're that good in English already X3
By the way, I met a student here yesterday, and guess where she's from? Poland ;P

Aye, aye. Though usually, I go first for the real drawing, and erase and re-do about a million times. But when I scan it into the computer, all the eraser marks are gone. XD

Awr, thanks. May you have a hug. <33

Yep, I've had my fox character for as long as I remember, though I changed it due to no longer liking it, as it became too hard to draw and all. And the raccoon fits my fursona on Furcadia, so it was a bit easier for me to draw for both at the same time, then individually drawing a fox and a raccoon.

Aye, atanomy is a thing I've been working on now, though I've been drawing more cats now. Canines still give me a bit more effort, ecspecially on eye postioning, but it all comes together in the end. ;D

Well, my parents are both Polish, and we speak Polish at home and all, so it's like having Poland in America. But my mom says that next year she might send me to one of those schools in Poland that teach in English, soooo, then I will be located in Poland. ;P

Really? That's cool. It's not everyday you come accross a person from a country of someone that you know. ^___^

Yup yup, that's how I do it as well, just that if I go and erase too often, unless I'm already almost done with the picture, I'd just start it over (especially at the beginning) .. the second one tends to turn out better than the first one ^-^

Oh, that makes sense .. and of course it is easier if you just have to draw one character .. plus it allows you to concentrate on just that one, and think of a great story behind it, no?

Nooo idea whether cats are much easier, I think it depends on how you draw them. I'd just say, draw whatever you like to draw, and you'd get better automatically ^-^ That's how I do it ;)

I thought you'd speak Polish when being at home, buuuut your English is really good as well, especially for your age, you know? (even though you dooooo make a couple of typos, but so do I)
Hehe, I could come to Poland and visit .. oooor you come to Austria .. it's pretty close after all, isn't it? ;3

Aug 22, 2005 
Aye, it's the same with me, though I tend to erase the parts that were actually the best by accident. ;P

Oh yes. Though the story isn't that great really. Just a labortory experiment and all and that's how I came about. <3

Heheh. Well, you're right. ;D

Thanks. You're english is great, too, as I've said a couple times before, and since you don't have that many people to speak english too and all, it's actually amazing how you learned. Though my parents would masaccre me to go out anywhere 'cept Poland and America. T___T

Hehe, happens too me sometimes as well, buuut usually, if I see it's not going to turn out, I usually just start over right next to it, usually it turns out better than before (and even when you're done with sketching something out, you can always try again and see whether the next one turns out even better - it can't get worse, right? after all, you already have a really good sketch ^-^ )

Oh, an experiment? .. what kind of experiment? ^^

Aww, thanks ^-^ Actually, right now I'm having a lot of people around me that speak English, since I'm in that exchange program thingy. Even the classes are English! Like maths - ever heard of jointly distributed mass function of random variables? X3 They would? Too bad ;_; Though, they could come along and you'd all go liiiike skiing? There are quite a few very nice places to go to, actually ^-^

(oh, and sorry for taking so long .. it's been quite a busy week, and time kind of just flew by ^^; )

Awr. Well, yep, pictures always turn out great in the end. <3

Cloning experiment. Nothing special, but the raccoon died in the end, and Phiyrr got ability to talk like humans. ;O

Well, at least have fun in the exchange program. Geez, even though I'm Polish, I wouldn't make a day at a Polish school, so I hope you're doing well. And no, never heard of such a thing, 'cept for the variable word. What grade do you attend at your English school? I'm in seventh, and that kinda freaks me out. But sking is a biggy in the US, and I love the zoos. XD

(I too need to apologize. School started, and I had a ton of homework to get off my back. </3)

Hehe, yup yup, they do - at least most of them, sooome could come out a little better, but then I just try again ^-^ Besides, I was told one needs to draw a few quick sketches just to "warm up", before drawing an actual good looking sketch, you know? ^-^

Ooh, I see .. poor raccoon though ;_;

Yush yush, I am ^-^ Though maths is a little difficult, buuut I'll try my best to get everything done there as well ;3 Aww, you couldn't? How come? I'm sure you'd understand pretty much everything of it juuuust fine and get all good scores ^-^ Hmm, grade? Weeell, I seem to be a senior, they say .. sooo .. I guess I'm in senior grade? ;P

Heh, I was told there are a few nice places to ski in the US, aaand I'll probably visit one or two, but I think I like Austria a lot when it comes to skiing ^-^

(no need to apologize - it's the same for everyone, right? I have juust as much homework, alas ^^; Are you in the US again now? )
Oct 1, 2005 
Aye. Usually I have to do my drawings on a timed interval, since my mom will think I’m donig my homework to long (teehee) or the drawing keeps me up half the night. --;

But warm-up sketches are a good idea, I have to try that. :3

Eh, well at least Phiyrr the raccoon go her memory deleted before escaping the lab. :O

Naw, they don't teach that yet, but I try and get A+ with the dreaded A. But it makes me shudder, though, to think that yuou're doing those kind of math problems. So, if you're a senior, you're in elventh grade. One more year, and than you'll be going to college, right? ^-^

Well I was thinkgni of that, too. Are there a lot of goats in the mountains inofby on your skis, and suddenly you see this goat pop out out of nowhere. I woudl be very surprised. :D

(Yes, I'm in the US, but the school holiday's are coming, so I'm going to be online more. :P)
