Mary Ressler
United States
Age: 25
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.


practice practice by SomeRedDame
practice practice
Haven't uploaded here in a while, so figured I'd share today's portrait practice since I actually like how it's coming along...

Trying to get myself practicing on a more daily basis, and while the last two times have been miserable embarrassments, today’s has been going okay..But man.. trying to accurately depict natural afro hair is a labor of love, let me tell you. But totally worth it for how beautiful it is. And hey, I need the practice for Spark’s baby girl AND the nana she's named after. Both of 'em got a whole head of the stuff. <3
Glimpse by SomeRedDame
Quick snippet of a headshot from a still-WIP sketch I’ve been putzing around with of my pirate doe.
..liked the face (after redrawing it a dozen times fffff), so thought I'd share. *shruuug*

Salt of the Earth

No good deed goes unpunished, though, apparently, as Ms Joan Cheever is now facing fines for feeding the homeless... :/…

(I really liked the photo from the article and decided to use it for practice... Pretty surprised and happy with how it turned out, all things considered. I dearly wish Ms. Joan luck and hope she can still continue her efforts.)

the same old grouch by SomeRedDame
the same old grouch
An earlier sketch from Tumblr that I'd been wanting to rework cause the face was driving me nuts... finally got it within the ballpark of half-decent. ♥

And jeeeez the more I work on him and the closer I get to what's in my head, the more he just seems like a grumpy old bear...
Oh well.. sometimes he smiles. Just not for me I guess, hurr.

'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 ♥
