Hey Everyone. I know it's been some time since I've updated.
I recently moved in with my girlfriend, and for some reason never being by myself has depleted any motivation I would have had to draw. Well, my lovely girlfriend wanted to support me, so she went out and bought me a desk! So now I have a nice space to draw again. My first drawing of the new year I decided would be a remake of an older drawing I did. I decided to re-draw Kaya Scodelario (AKA Effy from Skins). I drew her before, but got impatient with the details, and tried to frankenstein a different arm on her so she'd be flicking off the camera. It turned out OK, but I was never really happy with the little amount of detail I was able to put into it, and never happy with how the hand looked. So now every time I check my messages and see someone new has added Effy to their favorites, I get kind of sad and think, "I could have done better". So I did. If you check out the drawing to your left, that's the new version. In there is a link to the older one so you can compare. Anyway, good to be back, hopefully I'll keep up the drawing and be more active on this site. Keep on keepin on.

Wow, you have amazing gallery! I love your portrait of Scarlett Johansson ^^
And about your ask, I saw your portrait of Marla, so I think you can draw Tyler too.
