 :welcome:  again lauralee  yes your eye is really good just make the change as lillian suggests, rounding of the eye O0 I am sure that as the others suggest your drawing course should be in your unlocked class, can't wait to see your drawings, if your eye is anything to go by they will be brilliant  O0   I see you have already met a few of the others  :yippee: we are a great group here and always encourage and help one another  O0  yes we have our bit of fun too  :2funny:

I know about the rounding of the eye. It was a quick sketch and I didn't have an eraser. No I don't have access or any classes waiting for me. I'm ready for a refund sadly. I'm asked to either pay for the class or enter a serial number from the email I recieved. No staff has answered anything from me, going on 2 days other than my welcome post.  :-\ I'm pretty bummed.

Send a PM to Nolan. He'll get you straight in no time. Please don't give up, you'll be so glad you didn't.  :1hug:
Cheers, Val

Yey Lauralee  :yippee:


You are now officially in the race. Don't you worry about anything, you have a lot of friends here to help you through should you need any advice with any of the projects. 


 :hug:


But even more important Nolan and Dennis are always watching and ready to help you through.

 :heeha:  LauraL you are in!!!! Now, girl, we are waiting for some drawings!
No pressure, of course, no pressure at all. :2funny:
 
Lauralee, I hope you understand this banter is all in fun and that we (I) don't mean to actually put any pressure on you to do anything. It's very hard to communicate exactly what one is feeling or saying when you can not see the other person, so we rely on the silly little "smilies" to get our point across. They can get out of hand when we are at our silliest though! So please take this as it is intended,. . . . . from my heart, I want you to do well and to enjoy the "Let's Draw" course, at your own chosen speed.  :1hug:
 
Now hurry up and get in the race. . . . .     :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Thanks everyone. I downloaded the stuff I needed to so far. Off to do work on it. I'm heading out to the store first for lunch and dinner and then over to Staples or Office Depot to have them print the grids for me. BBL when I have something to share or when I need to say something...well not just need even want to act normal like y'all.  :2funny:

Well we are the new normal.  :2funny:

I was able to go to Office Max and got all the grids printed for .70 per copy. Wasn't too bad. How dare Staples be closed until noon.  :D  It's nice out so I'm taking my laptop into the back yard and watch the videos and stuff.

I would like to assure you that I was sure I was doomed when I tried them! :'(  But believe me, when they aren't just sitting alone on a piece of paper, they look just fine. Give them each a try for familiarity (hmmmmm, I should go back to that. Not sure i remember all my strokes and hand positions) and then move to your next step. You could keep practicing them a little at a time as you move along.

 :2funny: Well I actually finished doing it once. I decided I could just copy the lines by pencil and do it that way instead of trying to take laptop back in and print it out.  :2funny: Mistake!  :'( So tomorrow I'm going to re-do it. It was funny with me trying to figure it out, but I think maybe that I know it a little I should be able to do it better for the next go.  :2funny: Maybe I'll be brave enough and post my original one with my next one. Has to be a huge difference.

As for me some stroke felt very natural but others felt very awkward.  :whistle:  I guess that is why we have to practice them.  :knuppel2:
