Changing everything with Sketchbook Magic

Hi!
I'm Maria and I've never put my art first. I'm also the queen of excuses.

My focus is on digital art so when I have no access to the computer/tablet - I will not draw. I want to change that.
I want to feel as comfortable with traditional art as I am with Photoshop.

I tend to hide the fact that I draw, so people won't ask me to paint(or whatever) for them as I don't feel confident about my work. I want to believe that I'm good and learn to share my art.

I didn't have any ink or paint to make marks but hey! I promised not to say "I don't have the right supplies" anymore. drawing - day one.

SEA CREATURES
I had two favourite parts. The first one in the beginning making subtle pencil lineart. I was really happy with the drawing at that point but I thought that I have to do something more - and here's my second favourite part - I went bananas with the color pencils and ruined everything. Heh. It was a good fun though. I learnt that I'm good with black&white/monochrome but terrible at colouring things. :D

FRUITS

I got 4 minutes and 'fruit' from my bagic bowl.
I picked markers which I use for making notes at classes(hehe) and my pen. I couln't think of fruits in all that colors so some of them are vegetables and some of them are made up plants. 
I would like more time than 4 minutes though. Maybe to work on the letters a little bit more. But still it's good to know I can make something in less than 10minutes and not hate it :).

GRATITUDE

Today I drew in bed :D. To by honest the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about being grateful is touch. And I thought about the touch that is most soothing and for which I am grateful the most.
And that would be my boyfriend. I get crazy sometimes, pretty depressed, crying without a reason, scared about things, scared of the fact that I don't know why I cry or am so sad. And he sticks with me. He hugs or just holds my hand till I fall asleep. Even if I get crazy I know he will be there to me to hold my hand. 
The pic is on this cheap brown paper used for packages. I used white pencil, silver jumbo pencil and black ink.

FASHION
I sometimes do sketches of clothes just to practice. And I go to sartorialist.com to look for inspirations. This is what I did with those two.

Aliens! I bough a new supply. It's a Pentel's Pocket Brush Pen. It's awesome :D Highly recommend it.

I bought this A6 small sketchbook to check out how the inking would go on the bigger page. Not having 'ctrl+z' option here really sucks. You have to think trough every detail.

BOOK TITLES

I brought my acrylic paints from my dad's house not so long ago and decided to try them out today. I treid to remember something as it is over three years since I've touched brushes. I did those on A5 regular 90g paper :/ so I had to use as little water as possible. I'm not exactly happy with the letters but still it was super fun! I will have to go to an artist's shop and buy some boards to paint on :D

The book is of course Hemingway's "Old man and the sea".
