Sounds like an ad, but I swear it's not!

For Christmas as I mentioned before Aaron got me an IPad!!
Score!
The first app that I downloaded was SketchBookX. 
Which I HIGHLY recommend. 
Especially if you are into digital drawing.
Many of you probably don't know this, but in high school I took a lot of graphic design/art classes.
I was hoping to get my degree in Graphic Design at Utah State University..
but
I quit. 
Mainly because I already have a cosmetology license, and my husband is in college.
Two tuition's can get pretty pricey. 
Any who. 
Aaron brought a tablet home from his work a few months ago and I had been playing around on that a lot lately. 
So I was STOKED when I found the Sketch Book app. My brother actually told me about it. It is so much easier to do digital drawings than a tablet. 
That being said it still takes a while to do a portrait, upwards of about an hour and a half to two hours.
I am still learning how to use my fingers to manipulate my drawings, and hopefully I will get a stylus soon. Still getting used to all of the brushes too. 
The drawings are in order from my first to my last.
So don't judge my drawings too harshly k?
****


 P.S. Animals are super hard to draw!


 I tried a "crayon" like brush for the hair on this one, which I don't like how it turned out. 

 Anyone recognize this blogger?
 How about this little dude?
 Or how about this fab lady??
Or this adorable little lady, with the craziest/trickiest hair to draw I've ever seen!
So I just re-read the opening to this post, sounds like a freaking ad! haha
Sorry about that guys. 
Oh and in my last post, I didn't mean to come off as sounding prude!
I love a lot of blogs that do sponsors! 
It's just not for me
and most of you guys do them all in one big post which I don't mind!
I hope I didn't offend anyone!!
I hope you have a great night,
I was going to do my resolutions post tonight...
We'll see if I get around to it.

These types of programs are why I'm sad I don't have apple products. My dad has an iPad though, so maybe I can fan-dangle him into letting me use it once in a while.

It was neat seeing the progressing of your pictures. Keep it up, they look really cool!
