A sketch from last night...

Hi everyone! Good news, my doctor has been absolutely fabulous and given me 2 sample packets of sleeping medicine to help me both get to sleep and stay asleep. Last night I did... I wound up going to bed around 9:30 and sleeping through, mostly. I woke up twice, but was able to go back to sleep and that was such a wonderful experience. I woke up this morning feeling happier than I have in weeks, and managed to take my mom to the doctor and actually be useful there.

It was a very good day. To share this, I decided to post a quick sketch I drew the other night. This was a 3am, spur-of-the-moment sketch, and I am so, so content with it. I had no idea I could do this!

It's just pencil and blending stump, but I think this is the first time I've managed to draw a face with expression, a nose that looks like a nose. It feels good!

Also, have a fishie. She's cute and sweet. ♥


  1. yay, I'm happy for you :)

    wow, both drawings are beautiful, you're talented :D

  2. YAY for sleep! The drawings are lovely!

  3. As a fellow insomniac I'm soooo happy for you that you got some sleep. And your art is amazing, love the fishy!

  4. OMG, that looks super awesome!
    Same, I can never draw a proper nose, that one looks great. *-*
    Hi fish.

  5. amusedPolish- Thank you! Honestly, I think that's the best drawing I've ever done. Shame I couldn't finish it. I tried the lips three separate times and gave up. So instead, she's lipless. :D

    Evil Angel- Thank you! Consider it practice for your secret project! I haven't forgotten!

    Anita- Thank you! I don't know why I love drawing fish so much, but they make me very happy! I hope you get some good sleep soon too!

    AnnKiins'♥- Thank you! Noses are rough... this one I drew almost entirely with my blending stump! It was more like painting than proper drawing, which is probably why it worked better for me! :D
