Sometimes students make the best teachers

This morning I had my chat session with the Hawaiian exchange student. Since I know she likes drawing and manga, I shared my drawing problem with her. She said what I needed was someone to sit next to me and slap my hand when I try to add too many details. ^_^ She gave me tips on drawing chibis and anime-style eyes.

This is what I managed to accomplish today. It's still pretty elementary, but I think I'm making progress. I was especially proud of the eye in the middle, since I always have so much trouble trying to get the eyes right.

I even did one chibi human figure. (It's supposed to be megory dancing, though I didn't put quite enough motion/action in it.) I'm hopeful that if I keep practicing I might turn out some respectable pictures eventually.

When I got home after work, I was excited to find a delivery slip for my sewing machine. (I was kind of surprised, since the order page still lists it as not having shipped.) The truck should come back around during the next couple hours to deliver it.
