Our Cat, Meeko by AceOfKeys72
Our Cat, Meeko
A few days ago my housemate got a three month old cat named Meeko. This is the first cat i've ever had (technically its her cat but since we live together its a shared responsibility). He's still getting used to living with everyone, everyone being four people and two corgis, but we are all adapting. He definintely seems pretty predetorial at times and seems like a little hunter. I look forward to drawing him more.
After Dinner Still Life by AceOfKeys72
After Dinner Still Life
My first piece I've done in over a month. It's pretty simple but i like doing sketches like this. I'll have to try more as draw more.
For the past few weeks i've noticed a crop of My DeviantArt Stories here. At first I didn't pay much attention to it but I found out it was to celebrate 14 years of DA. Also you get a neat little badge but I doubt I'll get one at this point. However I think doing reflections like this is good for you.

I started DA w a different account four years ago but it wasn't high quality work.  I only started drawing seriously back in July 2010. I learned about DA and thought it was a good way to keep myself accountable with my progress. Funny i say this because I haven't been doing a lot this month. After a few months my first account fell into disuse. I didn't make time for it or to improve my art. Eventually I started up my current account with my friend. Sadly she stopped drawing altogether but i continued.

I always felt insecure that my work would be overshadowed by digital art since quality and interest was better, but I stuck with traditional to improve my skills. I would practice the basics, focusing on Realism, do warm ups, draw still-lifes, animals, plants, large objects like cars and houses, but rarely draw people. However i decided to challenge this by drawing people using google image. Over four years I've made a lot of progress, met different people, made some friends and changed a lot of my thinking and way of doing things. I've started to appreciate the work I put into, take the time to reach out to people here. Now drawing is something I really enjoy doing and its become a hobby I take pride in.
