SomeRedDame's Profile Picture
Mary Ressler
United States
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Location: California
Status: Artist, Student, anxious recluse..

I'm trying so hard to come back and to draw more.. This is one of the few things that used to make me so happy. And it still does! ...when I.. learn not to worry so much and just let myself go where my pencil and current abilities will take me.

It's hard for me to accept that things take time, because.. I've been taught and I have learned to be terrified of failure. It is something that continues to be incredibly difficult to shake, and having anxiety as a bonus doesn't help.

So please don't give up on me... even if I may want to sometimes. And thank you for sticking by me.


Beauty Routines by SomeRedDame
Beauty Routines
I once read something that said the disorganized state of someone's living space can be an indicator of mental health issues.
No surprise there, if that's true. (And it's even messier than I doodled... and I'm surprised I even tried to show that much)

I never like to show I have anything wrong with me, mentally, emotionally, or otherwise, so as a result I tend to put a LOT of effort into looking as nice as I possibly can whenever I leave my house. (If I didn't have such sensitive skin and wasn't well beyond legally blind, I'd have a ton of makeup in there, too-- I still try when I can... if I could afford it, I'd probably have someone do my makeup more often.)

It can result in a lot of pressure I put on myself just maintaining appearances, but it feels like one of the last few 'security blankets' I have to try and say "I'm okay" or "I can get better, even if it's only in short bursts."

Maybe as time progresses those bursts will become more frequent, and then I won't have to try so hard...
Because being healthy, body and mind, is pretty damn beautiful all on its own.
Sins of the Father by SomeRedDame
Sins of the Father
Ha, see it's funny cause he's a priest.

Cause in no way does it have aaanything to do with his daddy issues. Nnope.

One of the sketches I did a while back that I still like, even if he is a little off model.
(Oh well... someday I'll learn consistency.)

But ya know.. sometimes it's scary how similar they look though when he gets really angry.
Especially when ya consider how he's spent his whole life trying NOT to be like him.

Best laid plans, eh, Sparky?
Sketchdump Compilation 1 by SomeRedDame
Sketchdump Compilation 1
Buncha sketches, some practice sessions (noses, whoo!), some from Tumblr and some from personal projects that I forgot to upload..
The depressing thing is when I think these are over the past couple months... getting myself to draw sometimes is just so difficult when I feel so crappy. At least the worst of the holidays are over now, though... Time to get back to normal.

..."Normal", anyway.
  • Mood: Stunned
  • Listening to: Zoot Suit Riot - Cherry Poppin' Daddies
  • Watching: Chicago
  • Eating: Sea salt caramel ice cream~
'w'; Oh gosh.. oh man oh man... Hi there, you new lovely people, you!
I'm sorry if I haven't been able to thank you all individually, so I thought I'd make this quick little journal to say so!

Unfortunately the last few days have been rather nasty and kept me busy-- and unfortunately I don't yet have any new material yet ready to upload, but I don't wanna bring ya down-- Wanna keep this happy... I'll get something up soon!

So just.. well, thank you!

I hope I can have some stuff to share with you guys real soon!
In the meantime, be well and share a few smiles for me, okay?

~Cheers ♥
