Since I am completely broke this time around after some heavy purchasing, a painting should suffice. For the world’s best kid/little sister. Not exaggerating. She seriously is the best (although at times gets on my nerves. Hahahaha).
In a lot of ways, she does seem to be one of the main reasons why I still doodle/paint.

Felt good working on it after a long break from any form of art. Sometimes you feel like there is no way you can paint/sketch; like you have lost your skill.

Everyone/thing deserves to go out with a bang. One last amazing performance before they retire. I just ordered a ton of new art materials like new brushes and watercolors and wanted to make one last painting with the old ones. This is the one. Nothing to scale, just freehand. I love the texture of the guitar body since its so close to the real thing but I seriously screwed up with the background. A bit too much.
I finally got off my lazy ass and bought some thin brushes (Well, my kid remembered and got a few for forgetful me while she was on her way but thats just fine print.) Anyway, started to “sketch” the photo that was open on my PC and before I knew it… Voila! Kinda got carried away. I like this one even though I got sloppy in the end with the lighter feather strokes near the bottom.
