One of the things I like best about my Facebook group
Zentangle All Around
is the way we share our practice work each week.
I call this . . .
It's a time for us to show what we worked on
in our sketchbooks or journals that week.
Not looking for perfection,
not even completion.
Getting sketchy does a couple things:
* it shows that no one is perfect,
* it forces us out of our comfort zone - big time,
* it requires us to 'practice' and learn,
* it allows us to encourage each other,
* it allows us to learn from other people's work,
* as a result we each learn, we each stretch ourselves,
we each learn valuable skills.
I like to try the new tangles I found online that week.
I don't always like them and I won't always use them,
but I do have a record now and I can find them
again if the desire hits.
Someone commented recently that my
Getting Sketchy posts looked perfect.
I'm here to tell you that isn't always the case.
Case in point.
I thought the steps to drawing Baymax were super simple.
Until I actually tried them.
The shape of that head took me for-stinking-ever!
Baby Groot was a little easier.
And I like him better anyway.
