I am stressed. I’ve had the entirety of 5 months to prepare for my senior year and yet I feel more unprepared than ever. College applications are looming, scholarship deadlines seem to be flying towards me, ACT and SAT prep is overwhelming and my schedule seems to be packed with important dates.
Today was the first day of school and to be honest with you, I’m already exhausted. I apologize in advance; my blogging schedule is going to switch up at least for August. Now that school has started, I’m going to shoot for one post every two weeks… but I hope I can get two in.
While I’ve had a tiring couple of weeks, I hit a really cool milestone! A couple weeks ago, I switched my Pinterest account to a business one and started uploading videos of my bullet journal. Yesterday I hit 100K monthly viewers! Thank you guys for everything.
I’ve been pretty overwhelmed but I wanted to post something to let you all know I’m not dead nor have I forgotten about you. Aaaand I recently painted my first ever portrait; here are some pictures!
I’ve never really shaded this way or done a person’s face before so I’m pretty happy with the way that aspect turned out. As for the proportions, they could use work. You’ll really see what I mean when you see the finished comparison.
Here she is. She looked better bald… but I’m not angry at it. It could’ve been better, but a good painting for my first portrait, wouldn’t you agree?
The hand is unrealistically long. Whoops. Well, if you ask me, my painting could look like a real person. Just not the person in the reference photo.
Thank you for putting up with this mess of a post:)
See you in two weeks – or maybe sooner.
