Frustrated!

well, I achieved a new milestone in drawing class on friday.  My professor made me cry!  We have been working on this stupid body parts project for 3 classes (that’s 18 hours) and it’s never good enough!  The man is making me crazy!  The weird thing is that I didn’t think I was upset.  he was brow beating me into adding more contrast but no worse than usual when all of a sudden I felt that tell tale tickle in the back of my eyes.  Seriously?!?!?  Next thing you know, tears are trickling down my cheeks.  I felt like an 8 year old.   I was absolutely mortified and the poor professor was baffled.  He asked me if everything was ok at home.  I guess I’m more stressed with the whole school/work/family combo than I thought.  Here’s my project at the beginning of class and then at the end.  He was right about the contrast

    Oh, deer! I’ve had those moments, too, when you know you shouldn’t cry but you can’t stop yourself. Your drawing looks beautiful! Not many ppl could/would do what you’re doing right now, so don’t be too hard on yourself. This is supposed to be fun, right? At least a little fun?? Right? 🙂
