When the party began, I tried to draw the food table. It was a disaster. I learned not the drawing mistakes I was making but that I'm better off drawing alone by myself in a room sitting down and focused rather than standing up (because I didn't have a chair to sit down on) in an open room with people while talking to other people at the same time. Plus, it generally looks awful. It was still good practice though. That's a good thing.
Are you wondering why 80% of this page is empty? It's not because I didn't have enough time or I didn't think I was good enough to continue. I just legit got bored. Plus, it was a mistake to try to engage in a task that I'm not very good at yet in an environment that's very distracting. I just didn't want to spend much energy anymore, I just wanted to enjoy the party by this point. But before that. . .
Of course, I needed to draw this at some point. I have a feeling that this is the only thing I should have done today in the first place. The text in the oval to the right reads "Here is a super generic birthday greeting because I couldn't think of anything special to draw for you. Also, I'm bored and tired and I'd rather take a rest and enjoy the party rather than think of more things to draw." I personally presented it to him when I was done and to my surprise, he liked it. I like to think of the joke text as putting my unique spin to an otherwise truly generic drawing. I guess drawing skill alone is not always what makes certain artworks special to some people.
