A Very Busy Friday!

My shell is not the typical seashell. It is the tastiest shell, M&Ms. It was a good day to draw, not too much shaking going on in my head and hands. I believe that if I am able to draw each day or at least every other day my abilities will get better. It is a little scary drawing and then sharing it with others, but that is how one learns to get over that fear.

Practice! Practice! Practice! then Share! Share! Share!

No need for fear. Your interpretation is excellent and this group is wonderful. EDM is our soft spot to land, right?

Excellent thinking ! but hard to be drawing something that was forbidden. Your shading is really well done and you have caught the roundness and crunchy hardness.

Great job- I definitely like your shells :)

You have captured the shapes really well, great use of your pencil. Good subject for the shell challenge, I had chocolate shells for christmas, long gone!

I was amazed at your talent with the problems you speak of---what you drew looks just right and what a creative take on the challenge...I'll always look at your work and enjoy your writing...

Practice is definitely key, and it looks like you're doing lots. I'm mystified at the chiropractors antipathy for M'n'M's. And that auto-hypnosis stuff ONLY works if you want it to! I liked your orange as well, but some of my "mistakes" which have gone unerased have been the most meaningful. Happy drawing.

Clever approach to the shell challenge! Now you've got me hungry, though. Nice pencil work there -- the form is modeled beautifully.

Very cute take on the shell, that is so neat. I love the shading on the m & M's. They look good enough to eat.

Lovely shading! I very much like the softness of it - and you've done such a good job with the shadows. Don't be so hard on yourself, you're producing some great pictures!
