name: Margaret ideal career: magical girl actual career: lazy artist noodle loaf
HELLO I'm Margaret and I love Zelda and Adventure Time and Sailor Moon and a lot of other things!! I draw an obnoxious amount of selfie doodles as well as girls in cute dresses. I have a comic project that I swear I'll eventually get to. Also sometimes I do crafts or pretend I am a photographer and some of that ends up here.

There’s stuff in my ask box that I’m supposed to be drawing, but I’ve been in kind of a slump this week. I decided to go through Bridgman’s Complete Guide to Drawing From Life and copy some of his sketches. One thing I never did as a beginner was copy other artists— I found it really boring, I wanted to go off in my own direction and I felt like it was cheating. But copying consciously can be a great learning tool, and this book is fabulous. I really want to collect all of Bridgman’s books.
I just queued up some stuff I did at the beach house, too. It’s all sketchy stuff but I’m happy with it.
