Anyway, reading backwards on my own thread I noticed a slight mistake (I also noticed my english is much much worse than I thought and I'm sorry you all have to put up with that). This post should contain a link leading to this picture of clouds that I drew a couple of weeks ago. It now does so. Until then, it contained a picture of a couple of pearl plates I made for my cousin. And that wasn't really relevant. Well, mistake corrected. Carry on.

Rain kind of got away from me. It would look really nice to promise to do better from here on, but that sounds unrealistic. But yeah, there will be earnest attempting going on. I'll see to it that you get something daily to look at in the meantime from now on, regardless.
You do see to have a penchant for sand, yes. Make better use of it. Challenge yourself.
This probably sounds criminally lame added after the fact, but there was actually a challenge there. I was limiting myself to fifteen minutes to see how it'd turn out (drawing this slowly is a serious medical condition you guise).
You drew a boat because boats are awesomesauce. (I grew up on boats. And skiffs. And barges. And fishing tenders.)
I was going to offer commentary on your earlier posts of hand drawn stuff, but your later drawings don't have as much of the heavy outlining. Which, if you were planning to make it into line art for something like Illustrator or other vector program, is good. For just pencil work, maybe not so much. But several of your later drawings don't have so much heavy outlining. So I don't know if it's a stylistic choice* or an improvement in technique for you. I am heavily biased toward "classical" and "realistic" in physical media, though. Line art certainly has its place, but I tend to view it more as a key technique in sequential pictorial art (that's "comics").
Also I like the clouds and others that you did as digital art.
*I make stylistic choices with my drawings, that if you could see the process, you'd probably go "ohhhh, I see what you're doing there" (whether you like the result or not), but if you just saw the finished piece you might well go, "what the hell is that"
