One of my goals was to finish a drawing
I had started way back in November 2006.
I finished the face in about 3 hours.

Now, I have not taken art classes since
junior high. I do not have any sort of
technical background. I basically just
practiced my ass off. Not until I started
posting my work on DeviantArt did I really
understand I was using all the wrong materials.
So, when it comes to drawing, I feel like a
beginner. That was just a long side note.

So, I finished the face. Then I had to move
on to the hair. Now, let me just tell you.
I hate drawing hair, I've never really been that
great at it. And I'm never satisfied with the
outcome. So, I usually procrastinate when it comes
to the hair. In this particular picture I
managed to procrastinate for over a year and a
half. And last night I just decided I needed to
finish it so I can move on to another drawing.
I have been drawing since, but they were all
commissioned pictures for friends and family.
And I'm so excited I can say that I'm done, and
in general I am pleased with the outcome...except
for the hair ;)

My gallery is a little small, but a lot of pictures
I forgot to get scans of before I gave them away.

Teisha that picture is gorgeous. I am so impressed. I need you to come and do a portrait of me. I am thinking something along the lines of the Kramer. ;)

Seriously though, you are freaking talented!

Teisha, that drawing is gorgeous. You did a really great job on her hair.

Jess said...

Such talent! Hair will come... I am sure with much ass off practicing. :) Her eyes are great.

p.s. to hyperlink your stuff when you compose your posts highlight the text you want linked then click on the icon in the toolbar that looks like a sideways 8. It will prompt you to type in the htpp:// etc and it will have linkage.

WOW WOW WOW, you are incredible.

Tara said...

Awesome Teish! I never knew you were such a little artist. Seriously great job - you definitely need to keep this up!

Kelley Rae said...

Just another thing I have to admire about you - such endless talents! Great job.

Teisha said...

Thanks to all the nice comments.
I am always a little worried what people will thinks.

Jess - I have tried to use the link button when creating the post. And it show up fine in the preview. But when I post it, it seems to get lost. So, I just manually typed in the html code, and it seems to work fine. Thanks my dear.

Jess said...

Glad you got that link thing figured out. I explained the html code to heather over the phone once and it didn't come off very well! She did finally get it though (nice work Heather) ;)

So about this movie. Please don't think I am nuts because I have emailed you, called you and now I'm posting extraneous messages on your blog (I would've hit you up on facebook too if you were still on there), but Dan is not going to leave me alone until these plans are finalized. I will have hell to pay if he doesn't get to see the movie this weekend! Call me when you get a chance 801.634.7637
