I took a slightly better photo of my final self portrait... Though I'm still and awful photographer and it's still a bit blurry...
These next few are from my first assignment in my Drawing/Painting class. We were to choose an object that is important to us, and make a drawing and painting of it. This is a sumi paint set I received from my Obaachan. I wouldn't dare use it because it's too fancy and pretty to mix all the colors up.
These are the drawings. They made a nice grayscale study with all those colors.
And here's the final painting. It is the my first oil painting I've ever done. I'm enjoying how much easier it is to use oils than acrylics, though they make quite the (hazardous) mess.
