Sort of my personal "to do" list as an illustrator. I had written it down somewhere, or at least intended to, but have since lost it. So something I would do. I figure it'll stay here until I update my journal, a task I usually abhor. I always have to remind myself.

Dear Self,
for a successful drawing be conscientious of the folloing:

-Line Value
-Depth
-General Tone of the image/Values
-MORE BLACK! Don't be scared to push an image as far as it'll go.
-If you do take it too far, and it can't be salvaged, don't worry. Do better next time. Make everything a lesson.
-Ask yourself why you are drawing this image.
-Do more figure drawing
-Draw from life, you lazy fool!
-Perspective--it makes sense for a reason
-Pick a light source, and stick with it
-Atmosphere
-And for God's sake, LOOSEN UP!

Love,
Self

You have a beautiful gallery! I've always wanted to do watercolors, but it just doesn't fit my styles. I love your mermaids, they're amazing! I've always wanted to be a mermaid myself :XD: I even made a tail and everything.

Thank you kindly! I've always wanted a mermaid tail. I've actually had two friends (who had never met each other) have recurring dreams that I was a mermaid!

You can always have more than one style! I encourage you to do it anyway. :)

Me too, that's why I made mine. [link] It might not be real, but it's still just as fun and imagination can make anything as real as you want it to be.
