Ira and Noelle by maybelletea Ira and Noelle by maybelletea
Two unrelated sketches of my babies. Noelle, stop giving mixed signals girl DO U WANT TO PAIRS SKATE WITH IRA OR NOT.

Ira in the top one is just like "dksgjslgwhy"

I've been talking to Emily (:iconthedivinemissm-94: SHOUTOUT WHOO) about this figure skating story and she actually helped me by suggesting injuries as a reason Noelle could have quit skating as a kid (which I'd considered) because then I realized I could make the injury have had happen when Noelle was doing pairs skating, but it wasn't her who was injured, it was her partner. So I think she felt a lot of guilt for that as a child and decided to focus her energy on clothes which she's always loved too, anyway.

But skating with Ira has opened up her love back up for pairs skating. Noelle loves to skate by herself, but there's a thrill and connection she gets with pairs by being so in sync with someone. And this someone is Ira weeeh ;_;
(I just realized Ira is too much taller in the top one? bc she's not at an angle enough, but w/e shhhh no one cares)

AKFJLA THANK YOU <33333 I would love to hear that scenario ngl

omg thank you so much, like, I don't want to say "I KNOW" because that sounds... idk but goddamn it I DO KNOW. And I'm so happy about it. I mean I've drawn a lot my whole life, and drawn more and more in middle school and high school as they went on, but never to this extent that I've done this year. Like, pretty much the whole year of 2013 I've drawn way more than I ever had.

Part of it I think was discovering things I could do with digital art back in December/January (I had a tablet for years but always felt I was terrible at digital lol and I mean I'm still learning ovbs). And then around April or something I kind of revolutionized/had an epiphany about the way I draw faces that improved my consistency a LOT which I always felt I struggled with.

And I mean obviously I'm way more adept at anatomy this year (I've been studying it even more) and I do feel there's a ton more movement in my work than there was before bc I don't even know
I'm just more confident in my work I guess?? I mean I've always liked it to an extent but I was unhappy with a lot. Not to say I'm not still striving for improvement constantly, of course- every artist should always be striving for improvement/growth. I'm just really happy I feel more comfortable with my stuff despite the fact I want to be so much better.

omg I'm so sorry I just wrote a bunch about myself

IT'S OKAY TO KNOW YOU'VE IMPROVED, especially when it's this much!!

The epiphany moments are great aren't they?? It's like you've discovered a new scientific theory or like the meaning of life lol And I know how it feels when you do the double take on your latest sketches and suddenly OH SHIT I KNOW THE SECRET NOW! XD I still have a lot of problems with consistency and have been for a long time ;u; I do hope I'll have a breakthrough moment like you did! And oh gosh I can totally give you a tutelage on digital if you'd like that XD 

Oh gosh I'm actually kind of jealous of you right now ;u; I'm going through a phase where nothing I draw is satisfactory and good enough to upload -I really hould do an art improvement marathon challenge over the new year to really get better ;;;;_;;;

haha it's okay! i like to read/listen to people telling stuff about themselves (omg i hope that didn't sound too creepy XD) but yeah girl it's cool : D

I know omfg I just discovered something that really works for me I guess with consistency and I mean drawing so much has helped me get better at consistency too but yee~ I'm not sure if I've had too many epiphany moments but that definitely counted.

oh no really??? ;_; I love your art though. ever since that coldest and the boldest fanart ugh <3 that one is probably my fav fanart of that fic.
