Step 1. Know your limits. Step 2. Climb over them! by Andrelah Step 1. Know your limits. Step 2. Climb over them! by Andrelah
Is not usual to see Raisa that "tomboysh", but sometimes she doesn't focus on anything else than her goal. She's probably climbing a wall here or something.

Well, back in Russia her mother was a great classical dancer and she wanted her daughter to follow her steps since she had to stop her career for unknown reasons (even if she used to say it was because she wanted to raise her children and be a present mother), so Raisa started ballet at a very young age. At first she didn't like it that much and used to cry a lot (also due to her mother's severity when it came to this topic), but after practicing several hours, day after day, after some years she became quite good at it and ended up on loving it because of the lightness and pureness she felt while dancing, she felt like almost flying. Though, she still didn't think she was going to be a ballerina, or because her mother in the first place forced her, or because she felt that it lacked something important, even if she didn't know exactly what. Anyway, meanwhile she practiced, at the age of 10 she started to explore the wild land next to her house, those siberian forests of which her father said always to stay far from because it was full of dangerous animals. I'll explain tomorrow how she couldn survive the first times, but anyway she slowly became more resistent and learned the the forest ground was a really dangerous place so she learned how to climb trees, rocks, etc. It had become a sort of way of life, so at 15 she just ended up leaving ballet. Her mother first opposed as much as she could, but then, convinvěced also by her father, she gave up (also because meanwhile she had another little daughter, Anika, who seemed to truly like dancing). After moving to Tokyo to study in a high school there(Seirin), she had to adapt her style to the city, making it become that which is called Parkour. She constantly seeks freedom and tries to overcome her limits to improve herself.

Alrright, I'm currently working on a piece which is keeping me really busy, but in the meantime I did this to practice and keep the profile updated. Enjoy! :">

Wow, your pretty good at drawing people. Especially at a hard angle to work with. The only thing that I have an annoyingly hard time with is drawing people's faces. XD

Thanks! Yeah, faces are the most complicated thing with all those details and stuff :XD: I usually draw them first so I take my time to make it as good as I can.

After all they say practice makes perfect, we all need it. :XD: This makes me remember when I used to draw people with one eye covered by hair because I wasn't able at making them look both good. ^^'' :XD:

That's true. I only say that are more the limits set in our mind than the ones which actually exist. :)
