I need to quit drawing so many boring disembodied Addie heads. Of course, I didn't really expect the sketch here on the left to turn out as anything that you don't have to squint your eyes at to be able to discover what I was attempting to draw underneath all the messy lines, but as a passenger stuck in Southern California traffic, you tend to put a bit more work into something that you'd normally half-ass in just about any other circumstance:B. I miss my boyfriend's little town in North Carolina where traffic is a few cars in front of you at a stoplight:<. Oh, and the people there don't have their noses permanently stuck up in the air there either, but that's a whole 'nother story.

I also really need to begin trying to finish my artwork past the sketch stage. At the moment though, I'm confined to drawing while sitting on my bed, and a mattress or clipboard while sitting cross-legged doesn't make for very comfortable sketching positions. Same with a tablet, although that method hasn't been agreeing with the shakiness my hands have developed anyway. I do have a desk, but it's situated to where it's difficult to get to with the way my tiny room is organized, so I'm hoping to move some things around to be able to easily access said desk. Who knows if that'll even be possible though, this place is basically nothing but a place to sleep, keep my suitcases, and store boxes of old junk from my high school days that I'm too much of a sentimental packrat to get rid of.

I'm currently working on changing Addie's design slightly, but only in terms of her mix of breeds and fur texture. I'd like for her to have longer, more border collie-esque hair as oppossed to the rougher terrier hair she's shown as having on her reference sheet at the moment. I'm wanting her tail to be held lower and more closely resemble a border or golden retriever's, but I'm having some difficulty getting the look I'm wanting drawn out right. She'll still be a border collie mix, but instead of the other half of her being a random terrier breed, I'm going to replace it with Mudi. Guess we'll see how that goes...

I dunno how shaky your hands are, beut have you tried sai for inking? it has a stabilizer tool, with a few levels so things can be smoothed a little but not to the point of looking artificial?

I really like your sketches, and sketchiness in general :> Addie's new design sounds ace, I can't wait to see where that goes c:
