I have some exciting news to share! I got my first commission! I've had lots of nibbles, but no committals thus far. I'm nervous but thrilled!
Colin Morgan as Jimmy Minor
This is a redraw of a drawing I did last July. I never liked that one, so this is my retry.

Graphite and oil based charcoal pencils on recycled 110lb drawing paper.  8 x 13.5", 12 hours.
Draw This Again - Colin Morgan as Jimmy Minor
Jimmy was one of my first drawings back in July 2016. I was never very happy with it; it never looked like Colin to me, but I couldn't lay a finger on what I did wrong. I always wanted to redraw it, but just never got to it. So now I finally have, and I'm much happier with this result.

I love these 'draw it again' memes, because they gave me hope that I might get better over time, and I did. So I hope that maybe someone might look at this result and feel inspired to keep drawing if they've been feeling discouraged by their work, or comparing their work to other artists (which I've been guilty of many times).

Also I'd like to thank other artists who encouraged me and gave me suggestions how to improve. For example, when I first drew this, 112thinlinetothrone gave me some great guidance and suggestions which I took to heart and they helped me so much! I hope we can all continue to improve - just keep practising!

Although I liked to draw as a child I put down my pencil with the demands of life and never picked it up for many, many years. Recently was challenged by a friend online to draw again, and I haven't looked back.
