Not one to simply accept defeat, I came up with a plan to replace the the now pathetic singed *fur*, with new even more fabulous stuff. The internet hunt began. That was when I discovered there is apparently a lot of different kinds of faux fur out there, and the fanciest stuff, comes from, no surprise-- Europe. (The singed is on the left, the new fancy stuff is on the right.)
Somehow, this all led to me buying a purple fake fur french coat on ebay. (?) I know, I get out of control at times, but it was seriously really cheap. "Don't hate me because my coat is from FRANCE baby."
Anyway... Thanks to her tips I can now draw the shit out of hearts. (I freaking OWN you hearts, and don't you forget it!) (Not really, but-- progress right?) (So what if I wanted those things that look like Doritos around that one to be flames. Baby steps.)
Well, I've never been super practical about stuff like this, and my psychotic over-achiever thing sometimes serves me well. Why shoot for mediocre right? As you can see, I bit off more than I can currently chew.
The photo is my guide (I'm not trying to copy it exactly, it's a starting point). The rough sketch on the right is from me tracing over it with the pencil tool, which is still tricky for me not watching my hand at all. The other one, on the lower left is my wip (work in progress).
In other Suenews-- I've been complaining about my assfat lately as you know, and am switching some stuff up in an attempt to break through my plateau. I got this book I told you about last time, about how to override some metabolic stuff etc. It's pretty interesting. I won't do everything he suggests, for example 20 minute ice baths?-- no thanks. But I am trying some if it.
Last night, after eating unbelievably healthy all day long (seriously-- egg whites, spinach, beans beans beans, and chicken breast was IT) I drank a tiny amount of grapefruit juice (which is supposed to do something to fool your body) and did 40 squats (another trick) before I ate this---
Tomorrow I'll do another post, because my pal Jen is stopping by the blog on a "blog tour". She's been a great crit partner for me with the writing stuff and now her book is actually getting published-- like, you can actually order it online NOW. A real live book! We're sort of interviewing each other and she's super interesting and cool so I hope you'll check that out too.
