Drawing Challenge Day 1-5

Hi everyone!
Hershey and I decided to do a drawing challenge for 30 days and so far it's been really fun! She decided to draw Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels as her character in the prompts, and I chose Rusem, who is me but Star Wars-ified. ;) If you read this post then you know who she is more in detail. :)
Day 1-
The prompt was a mini bio, and this is what I did! Although Rusem is me, she has some differences, like that she's 19 and 1 inch taller than me (BECAUSE THAT'S THE HEIGHT I HOPE TO BE BY THAT TIME). XD
Day 2-
This challenge was to draw your character eating their favorite food. So I drew Rusem eating blue milk cheesecake!! XD XD Cuz I love cheesecake and blue milk is already in Star Wars, so why not? ;) Doing this challenge has already made me realize what I don't draw often...:P
Day 3-
A color portrait! I was just like- Wait. I'VE BEEN DOING ALL OF THESE IN COLOR!!! XD But anyway, I did it again. ;)
I decided to go simple and not add any shading or anything, which is interesting since I always do a ton of shading and extra stuff! XD LOL!
Day 4-
They wanted me to draw my character cosplaying a favorite character of mine. I have a gazillion favorite characters, but I decided on Kylo Ren since I've already drawn myself cosplaying as Ahsoka (it'll probably by shown in a future post of drawings with me and Dee)
It was really fun to do Kylo's saber! It's so unstable and sparky! XD
Day 5-
This was the challenge for today, and my favorite challenge so far! A 15 minute sketch! Even though it was stressful, it was invigorating to try to crank out a really good drawing in such a short time slot. :D You never know how quickly 15 minutes go until you try to draw a complete drawing. O.O XD
I can't wait to continue doing this challenge! Have you ever tried to do something like this before? If not, I recommend it! It's nice to have something to do each day. :)
I'll continue to keep you tuned into how it's going, probably in 3 to 5 day segments!

Texting Adventures with Dee!

Dee and I text SOOOO much, I've been wanting to share some of the funniest text conversations we have for a while now!
But now I am finally going through with it! I think this might become a monthly segment on my blog...we'll see. ;) I recently deleted all of our messages, so there are only a few really funny text conversations this time!

A text conversation in which Dee was greatly mistaken in my dinner making skills. XD DEE, I NEVER MAKE DINNER FOR THE FAM! I guess I just always make food for myself, then let the family eat anything from it they want, so technically I DON'T MAKE THEM DINNER ON PURPOSE! XD

Our language skills be on point.

For some reason, we have started to do this... I'm just as grossed out as you...XD XD

That escalated quickly...O.o

I know this was a short post, but I hope you are looking forward to more of these. Now, Dee, be aware that anything you say can and will be used against you on this blog. OuO

If you want to see more of these, tell me! And if you want to know what TNTLOL means, check out the new page on my blog and learn yourself. XD

Recreating #5

Hi everyone!
Like I said in my last post, I was going to look into making another recreation- AND I DID!
Look at me being all productive and stuff. :)
This is the drawing I decided to redo! It's of me and Hallee, my black poodle. :) I did it when I was around eleven, so nearly five years ago!

Working on the new drawing after the first sketch was laid down to my liking. :)

I've been sort of on a 'going outside' kick, so I went outside and continued working on it. It was really fun. ;)
And now... the final product!!

My recreation!!
I've never tried to do sun flares on a drawing, and because of that, it didn't turn out very well...XD But I still really like the new drawing! I didn't use a picture to help make Hallee look like her until after I drew all of her and then made adjustments, so she doesn't look as similar to my actual dog as I would like... BUT ANYWHOO!!

It's definitely an improvement! I already have another drawing I want to recreate, so there should be another one of these coming up soon! :D

Hi everyone!
This post's title is totally a joke, I am not a basic hashtag peep. If you are, that's fine though...I'm just not...Even though I use hashtags a lot in texts and conversation, it's just as a joke....O.O
So I was inspired to make a list of my blogging goals from Katie's most recent post over on Scattered Brained Seamstress! :D
I thought I would share it with you guys, because why not? It would make sense for you all to know what I am trying to do! :)
Here is my whole list, but let's start with blogging goals for DTW first! :D

Post once a week (or more!)
Make & post writing prompts again
Post Glazed at least once a month
Reply to comments promptly!!!
Do something about hermitting- cuz it's important
Customize blog by making a header (Something I really have been wanting to do lately but have no idea how! Does anyone know a good place to make that kind of thing?)
Change the font (cuz apparently it's something people dislike even though I like it. :()

So those are my goals for this here blog that I want to do! :) Posting once a week is probably gonna be the hardest thing, because I don't want to just post the same old stuff over and over again. OOH! That reminds me. I need to do another Recreations, one of my favorite things ever to do! Maybe I'll work on that today...;)

My blogging goals for Wacka (Wack-A-Doodle-Dolls, but Wacka for short. ;D) are...
Post at least once every 2 weeks
Let Faye post once a month
Find new doll blogs to follow!
Comment on all the posts I read
Look into customizing blog some more
Make a new announcement about that one specific thing you have in mind once you have everything in place
Post new and original content along side classic format posts

And my random goals arrreeeee...
Read daily
Draw at least one new drawing per week (definitely a problem I am having right now. All I am doing is drawing. O.O XD)
Write 1,000 words a week
Finish Wings of the Banished B4 November
That last one is definitely going to be the hardest one... I need to finish it by November, but what would be most preferable would probably be like August. But I have no idea if I can make it that quickly. I'm almost 60k into the book and so much more needs to happen...O.O At LEAST 20k more words...Let's hope I'll finish it on time for NaNo... Hehe.

So those are my goals! Do you have any specific goals for yourself or your blog? I really loved doing this and I feel inspired to go get this stuff happening! XD
But I badly need someone to help me find a place where I can make a header for my blog...I don't know where to even start, so if you can help me make a collage a rectangle and not a square, please tell me. XD

i am a drawrer ~ hear me roar ~

A+ titling right? ;)
It's sort of a struggle to come up with new titles to make more art posts sound different than others...XD I can't just keep labeling them- Recent Drawing #30029! XD
But, that's what I'm here to show you, guys! I've been in a slump with practically everything but drawing (even though I think I'm finally getting on top of my blogging game again!), so I've had to draw a boatload to get me through this hobby slump. XD
(No, but seriously. I don't want to write- I think I'm getting out of this one slowly, too, I don't want to read, I don't want to blog, I don't wannaaaaa)
Morgana from Merlin! This was so much fun to draw! Her hair is so crazy and wild and her face is so angular and awesome, and the angle I was drawing her was different for me. :)

MERLY PANTS!!! Aka Merlin. XD
Another thing that was cool about drawing this was that I realized I rarely draw really smiley peeps, so this was different and fun! :)

Now moving out of Merlin (which y'all have to watch so I can die and cry and scream with you) and onto Star Wars Rebels!

Even though she's not totally accurate to her Rebels self, I had a lot of fun drawing her! Sometimes it's more fun to just draw and not be so perfectionistic. :)

As I've mentioned a couple times before, The SSOD is The Secret Society of Desserts that Dee and I started has new members! These are all of them from left to right-
Taffy, Fudge, Cobbler, Churo, Dee, Cookie (me), Gummi (gummy bear), Nilla (nilla wafer), Twix, and Hershey!
It's super exciting to have these new members. :)

Moving onto random characters I've created! This is just a very cartoony girl I did when I realized I didn't do many overly happy people. ;)

Trying new angles on characters...:)

While we are talking about trying new things, I've been wanting to try some different pens and stuff for drawerings, so I used Sharpie for this one (not what I had in mind, but whatever. XD) and didn't totally hate how it turned out. :)
It was really fun to try a sitting position paired with the really pretty dress. :D

Creepy hood lady. O.O

Scroll past... Scroll past!!! XD

I have two more drawings to show you that are sketches. This one was sort of inspired by Shakespearean stuff as well as Burdge Bug kind of style. I didn't finish it though cuz I didn't like the pose and I felt it was unnatural and too rough. :I

AAAAAAND random girl to wrap up the post. ;)
I hope you liked the drawings, tell me in the comments below which one you liked best! :D

Reasons Why the Dark Side is Better Than the Light

Hi everyone!
This post, if you can't tell, is gonna be listing ALL the reasons the Dark Side is 100% better than the Light.
*clears throat*
*puts on glasses*
*brings out presentation from briefcase*
Epic-mazing costumes
Fewer people are on the Dark Side so you ultimately get more notice (plus it's great for introverts).
They haven't won yet, so really, it's just a matter of time before we win and the Light Side is beaten. O.O
Force lightning. Need I go on?
No one questions you for wearing all black all the time.
You don't have to worry about what color lightsaber you want cuz you get red. Only red. O.O
You have a stronger impression on people as a Dark Sider.
It gives you amazing power right away and you're able to defeat Jedi masters even as an apprentice. OwO
You have all the powers that Jedi have PLUS MORE!!
The Dark Side is proven to be more powerful than the light. ^_^ I believe the Dark Side just doesn't have the right members in it to beat the Light Siders.... Yet. :)


I'm looking at you Hershey and Dee. OwO

Endeavors in Photography

Hi everyone!
I've always loved taking pictures, if you haven't noticed, and these are some of the highlights in my camera roll! :D
When I went camping recently, it was really cool! There were so many opportunities for picture taking, and I really liked it! :) Lots of these pictures are from camping. ;)

Molly!! My oldest sister's dog. She was falling asleep on the car drive to camping. ;)

These rocks were insane at our camping site! They were right at the back of our spot and were super fun to climb. :D You could get up SO high!

Campfires are so aesthetic.

Pretty flower from hiking. :)

Oh, back to camping! ;D

I got this photo a pretty long time ago, but I loved how it turned out! FIRRREEE!!! XD
*goes onto sing "Hellfire" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame*

Puppies!!! XD I love my little doggies. ^_^

I hope you enjoyed my photos! :) Do you have a favorite thing to take pictures of? Mine would probably be people, although there weren't any people in this post. ;)
