You don't become good at something, or great at something without putting in the hours to get there. Metalwork is no exception. It takes practice, time, screwing up and melting a shit-ton of things before you get there. Pieces you're almost finished with, then you get the flame a tad to hot and it's all over. Those moments are the ones that make you want to give up and throw work across the room.. BUT, that is part of the process. I learn best after I mess up a time or two. I learn what NOT to do from it instead of seeing it as a total fail. Life's like this too of course. So today have a little grace for yourself as you screw up, it's part of life.

I know I'm supposed to be faster and do more. I drew some things but didn't post; so I'll show you some stuff soon...
My bilingual art course has to draw their favourite story moment in three pictures as a task right now. I am doing it too, drawing a moment from "Reaper Man" by Terry Pratchett where Bill Door (Death) and New Death meet and Death sees that New Death wears a crown which makes him angry enough to eliminate the other entity and resume his work as Reaper Man. It's very powerful and says everything about Pratchett's position on death and his character.
