Just letting you guys know I won’t be finishing or making a video of this drawing of Conor McGregor. I made a pretty unfortunate mistake, I was planning on drawing more around Conor, so this is not finished, but for the composition to work I needed him facing to his right. Since he was facing to his left in the reference photo I was using, I flipped the image which caused his tattoo to also be flipped. So I drew his tattoo backwards. I thought it was turning out really well but as I was finishing him I realized that his tattoo was not correct, so it’s not an accurate representation of him. I will probably try drawing him again in the near future. This is a lesson learned not to reverse reference images without thinking! 😞

She also shares regularly drawing videos of her art projects. Unfortunately, they are mostly timelapse. But, when you watch her drawings videos, it looks like magic is happening in front of your eyes, something that is not possible. But it is! With love and a lot of practice, you can become another Heather Rooney.

And don’t you ever give up on drawing, all of those artists were on the same level like you. But they didn’t give up, and because of that they are here today!
