H! Welcome to my profile =D
I'm 18 years old, graduated a year early from highschool (I was homeschooled), and I'm training to become a professional ballet dancer, dancing 6 days a week :heart:
When I'm not dancing, I enjoy drawing :) I've loved to draw since I was a little kid, but didn't take it very seriously until about a few years ago when I joined dA. I do mostly traditional work, but the occasional digital or photography piece will pop up here and there. I am currently taking some art classes at the local community college and will be pursuing art on the side along with my future ballet career.
I hope you enjoy my gallery, and feel free to leave a comment, ask a question, or note me if you would like a commission. :meow:

Thanks for looking! :huggle:

(Any suggestions for a title?)

Had lots of fun with this piece :)
Sorry for inactivity; I'm currently out of town for 6 weeks and although I've been drawing some stuff, I haven't scanned/photographed it and won't be able to until I get back. I'm also struggling to learn how to use dA mobile so hopefully I can figure it out soon :p

Materials: Bristol board, colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pens

Photo Reference by MartaSyrko Please go check her out! I've used her photos before and I love them all so much! Very beautiful work!

( I will upload a better quality/larger image when I can!)

20 min drawing challenge by SquirrelGirl15
20 min drawing challenge
For :icondraw-along: 's May reference.  I opted to do the 20 min challenge again like did last time since it's quick and helps me work on my sketching skills.  
To be honest, I'm not really happy with how this came out at all :XD: The proportions got wacky, the shading is meh, I didn't get to as much refinement as I had wanted in the 20 minutes....but that's life and it's called a "challenge" for a reason :thumbsup:  I'm still posting this however since I haven't been super active and want to submit something, even if it isn't my best work.

I'll be posting some more "real" submissions soon! I promise! :D

Sheepdog Puppy by SquirrelGirl15
Sheepdog Puppy
This is what I painted for my mom for Mother's Day :) She's always loved sheepdogs so I thought I'd paint a cute puppy and make it all spring-timey with a bunch of flowers :D  I can't find the link to the reference photo I used CURSE YOU!  but I'll link it if I stumble across it!

Materials:
Bristol board, watercolor pencils, water colors, acrylics, markers, pens, pencils Lotus
