EDM #221 and a new footballer

Here's EDM number 221 - draw a handheld game. What else could I draw but my DS Lite? I love this thing. When the DS was first released, I was wary of it. I thought the touch screen was gimmicky. Eventually I got one and I grew to love it, especially as games like Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Professor Layton came out. When my exams are over, I'm going to finish Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars. (If I had a pound for every time I said "when my exams are over" I would have the deposit for a house by now.)

Also here's a footballer. He plays for Chelsea and I think he's called Ricardo Cavalho. So he's probably Brazilian, in which case maybe he can help me revise for my exams... I was in a charity shop the other day and spotted Shoot 2009 annual for £1 and snapped it up. Lots of lovely footballers to draw! And it's tidier than all the sports pages from newspapers that I had been hoarding up till I got around to drawing them.

Both of these were coloured with horrible coloured pencils from WH Smith because I have misplaced the pencil case with my Derwent pencils in. I tidied up the other day and put them away somewhere safe and now I forget where the safe place is :( The colour from these pencils is really quite weak. I never really noticed the difference before but I haven't used these pencils in a long time and now I realise why they were so cheap.

Tomorrow my Unravelling e-course starts. I'm so looking forward to it. Everything for the past few weeks has been assignments, exams, work, exams, exams, exams. Hardly even any drawing. It's about time I took a bit of time for myself when I wasn't allowed to feel guilty for not studying. Also it will force me to take photos, and that's a good thing. There will be writing assignments too. I'm not a writer at all, as I'm sure anyone who reads the ramblings on my blog has already noticed! But again maybe it will force me to sit back and think about things a bit instead of always rushing through stuff to get to the next thing on the list.

The pink DS ^^ My fiancee has that one too! I have the old fat version, which I simply adore still. :) I can never finish Phantom Hourglass because I always thought that if I keep the last bit, I could enjoy it... that was like a year and half ago. Professor Layton too -___- and Of course, I'll get GTA very soon.
Nice sketch :) Totally makes me smile and thanks for your comments! And yes you do need to get the movie. ^^ It's not those sad-tears but instead it's those touched-tears kinda movie so it's really good :)

Great sketch! As Alex already said, I have a pink DS Lite which I ADORE, and I really wanna try out GTA as well.

I look forward to your next one! <3

I love the DS drawing. I've got a black one and all I ever play is Sonic or Brain Training. I am equally rubbish at both but still love Sonic.
