Make Him Breathe- RevisedMAKE HIM BREATHEMake Him Breathe- Revised by Parakissess
One AM, New Years Eve. I should be out drinking, getting high playing the role of a normal teenager. But Im in bed, listening to the incessant thump of neighbours music drift and bite at my nerves so much for trying to switch off. The kids next door are always noisy, the kind that are boisterous, and borderline dangerous. So I assume its them when the yelling begins. I cant distinguish actual words, but I recognize the tone of voice; frantic.
I roll over, unwilling to let the sound get to me anyway, it sounds no different to their usual antics. I dont know what goes on beyond the fence; their backyard isnt included in my view. Ive seen the mother, she wears those scarves wrapped around her head, and I especially notice how she wears the same outfit everyday. Ive never seen the father maybe there isnt one.

Cultivating Your Drawing SkillsI believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies).Cultivating Your Drawing Skills by Majnouna
Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial.
Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning directly from the real world around us and gradually deriving principles from it.
Alone, they are both incomplete; trying to work with only one of them would be like trying to walk with one foot. Studying lays down a solid foundation, which remains abstract and limited until observation brings it to life with details and real-life application
I draw stuff. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's deep, sometimes it's a story I want to tell. Everything I do is an experiment of sorts. |
I type in Dvorak, draw on a tablet, and build worlds in the shower.
I'm a curious person who never stops thinking.
