I’m doing that stay-up-all-night-to-practice-drawing thing again.

Well, it’s 2am but I don’t care because I am working on a project that I am really excited about! I am practicing more portrait drawings (digital media), grayscale value studies, anatomy of the face, etc. etc. etc. This stuff is so hard, and it is taking me ages, but I am really starting to get it I think. The more I do these, the better I grasp it. I’ve spent about 3 hours working on this so far:

Those are two screenshots of the steps I’ve done so far. Oh geez, this is gonna take a while. If only I could get into traditional portraits like this… and have such “layering/erasing” capabilities. 😛

This is the original reference photo:

Goodness, Dia Frampton is so amazing. I saw this beautiful picture and I just had to use it. I can’t help it, she inspires me. Well, that and I’ve been listening to Meg&Dia CDs every day since Christmas. 😉 More amusing still is that I am doing this for fun, and it isn’t for class. My classes are in traditional media… I don’t even know if this would count or not, but I don’t need it to.

Happy Adventures,

What if they are just as afraid of you? Finished!…maybe?

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Smile about what you are thankful for, and never forget you are a dreamer.


I am a girl on a mission, and the mission I am on is to be myself. I am an undiscovered treasure, and here I am giving you a key that will allow you a little further into the labyrinth of who I am.

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
