5 x 7" watercolor paper.

I had gotten a bottle of metallic silver acrylic ink for a previous project I'd had in mind, but decided against using it... and forgot about it. It was recently unearthed while I was cleaning my room and going through some supplies laying around.
The metallic acrylic ink seems to be a bit more forgiving than the usual acrylic paint, but it also seems to be a little more difficult for my scanner to pick up.

Simple things.

I guess it was about time for me to really appreciate simply being able to draw. I've become so accustomed to being able to draw what I had in mind whenever I wanted, it was very unsettling and frustrating to be unable to for a (relatively) long period of time. It's like when you're sick and relearn to appreciate being healthy.
So now, I've been happily drawing and painting – both digitally and by hand.

Space Case

I hadn't been able to draw anything for a week or two. After sitting and trying to work it out, it wasn't happening so I simply left it alone and wandered around. For now, I'm back and my hand is working like it's supposed to.

However, I didn't follow the golden rule of constantly saving while using Photoshop and... lost the entire drawing I'd been working on. Cue shock, disbelief, and lots of shouting.

So this is what I've got from when I reopened Photoshop and started on something new:

I thought it was kind of interesting like this with the space and suggestion of form.
