Drawing anime style

I have decided that I am going to stick to drawing in an anime kind of style as this is what I seem to be picking up more easily than anything else and it is also really cute which makes me like it even more. 

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to practice today because I’ve had a super busy house and it’s a bit of a downer as I really want to practice and come up with ideas for what to vlog about, it’s so exciting being able to plan for a YouTube channel in the hope a small group of people will enjoy watching me and what I talk about/ do. 

Practising first video

The last few days I have been recording myself making my first video to try and get a feel for talking to a camera and the first few takes were so cringy it was awful, after a couple more tries I finally got to a point were I was talking more fluently and not stopping and starting because I have no idea what to say and because I feel weird. I am still so scared about my mum coming in and thinking that I am a complete weirdo haha (she doesn’t know that I want to start a channel just yet).

However out of all of the things I need to practise before I can make a good video I am having to really focus on my facial expressions because they currently don’t look good, watching myself back I look so scared and sad, there is no way I will succeed if I cannot fix this but I also don’t want it to look like I am forcing those expressions.

I plan to practise talking to the mirror when I have a free house so I can work out straight away what I am doing wrong, I think this will be easier than watching it back on a video because when I do that I focus on how embarrassing it is to watch them rather than thinking of what I can do to fix the problem.

My boyfriend also encouraged me to practise my drawing this week as well and I drew my first bow which I was proud of and I also drew me and him together which didn’t turn out great he looks stoned and I look very very shocked. It is a great improvement from how my drawings have looked in the past which to me is an accomplishment and I was surprised that the drawing of me actually got likes on Instagram it gave me a little confidence boost.

I think that does it for this entry, I hope you enjoyed it and have a great day.

 

 

 

Introduction

Hi there, I am lilblackfox. This is my first ever blog so I apologise in advance if it isn’t all too great. To keep things nice and brief I am a university student studying computing it is pretty fun but I have been doing it for many years now and it feels more like a chore than something I enjoy so I have decided to not continue studying and spending the next year or so being more creative by having this blogging, starting a YouTube channel, learning how to draw, practising web development and hopefully getting better at photography.
