face sketch. female.

“What can a pencil do for all of us? Amazing things. It can write transcendent poetry, uplifting music, or life-changing equations; it can sketch the future, give life to untold beauty, and communicate the full-force of our love and aspirations.”
– Adam Braun

For now i’m following tutorials to get the basic steps and everything, but more down road the goal must be, as Adam Braun once has said.

Diving into our imagination and feelings and then expressing them in the form we like the most. For me this obviously sketching and painting.

It is like learning to swim:
First we struggle to keep our head over water. Then someone comes and shows us how to swim. After that swimming is very easy and we can start exploring.
