@the-fledgling-artist Hey guess what? I found a copy of Story Thieves at a used bookstore yesterday and grabbed it because of our conversation. I’ll have to tell you what I think of your favorite character. 😉December 28, 2018 at 4:06 pm #68262
Oh, that’s so fun! I love book-shopping at used book stores and thrift stores, you can find such awesome deals! I buy almost 99% of my books from thrift stores and it feels like such a steal when you find brand new books for a couple of dollars. Where do you buy your books? ( @the-fledgling-artist you too. 😉)

@eden-anderson Well, you wouldn’t believe the deal we got yesterday!
The thrift store in town has a deal every last Thursday of the month where you can fill an entire box of books for only …. *dramatic pause* ten dollars!
We fit forty-two books into that box and bought them for ten dollars!! It was amazing! 😀 😀 😀December 28, 2018 at 4:47 pm #68283
*grips face* 😮😮😮😮
You are kidding. You are so KIDDING!!!!!
NO FAIR!! Can I please come move to your area?!! OH. MY. WORD. That is SO COOL!!
I just can’t even. 😉
I love books, and deals like this…well lets just say I am probebly a little too obsessed with finding good book deals. 😁😜❤❤❤

@evelyn Oh! Yess! I can’t wait to hear what you think. ^-^
@eden-anderson Actually I’m very picky about what books I read, and even more so with what books I buy. So I can’t usually find anything I would like at a thrift store. When I do buy a book I go to Amazon. 😀

No need to rub it in.
Sure, makes sense. I understand.
Are you familiar with Thriftbooks at all? It’s like an online used book store and it’s AMAZING!!! I really like, especially cause you can get books cheaper there then on Amazon. It’s really cool if you don’t mind buying used books.

@eden-anderson No I’ve never heard of it before. 😀 Thanks for the recommendation!

When it comes to books…it’s a pleasure! A true pleasure, madam. 😉

Guess I’m sort of late to this thread. I really enjoyed looking through it, though. You all have such talent!
Here’s a monarch butterfly I drew when I was ten or eleven:
And here’s one I did recently:
I think it’s safe to say I’ve improved. I just wish I’d improved more… I really need to draw more often.
Anyone who sees this is welcome to critique it!
(Oh, and @the-fledgling-artist I actually tried watercolors for once! Do you have any tips on how I can improve my shading?)

I recently unearthed my very first manga drawing which I drew when I was. . . probably a tween. I’m keen on redrawing it some time. 😀

Okay, so sorry for the double-post, but I am dying. . . X’D
Ladies and gentlemen, this was my very first attempt at manga-style drawing. As I mentioned before, I drew it somewhere in my tweenage days. I love, and hate, everything about her. XD The skin color is so wrong, the hair looks like a bunch of awkward tentacles, the shirt is ugly, and her eyes and mouth make her look like Dora the Explorer. Even her name is cheesy. (My Dad knows a bit of Japanese so he helped spell out her name in Japanese, too. XD)
I am SO redrawing this. *smirks*
Evelyn, your little post of ancient drawings made me laugh my eyes out. Well done. I loved it all. X’D
Gaaaah, you guys are all such amazing artists!!! I can’t wait to be able to draw like that. 😉
