Knowing that I was too stressed, my dad brought out the old charcoal set and told me I need to loosen up with some sketches not pertaining to current projects.  This was done with charcoal, brushes, and smudge-sticks.  The paper is actually from a Piccadilly sketchbook with woodless paper that I would highly recommend.  It has a wonderful smoothness and accepts drawing mediums well.

This is lovely. I hope your dad's idea works and your stress levels drop!

The stress is definitely easing up. Thanks!

Wow! It's no wonder you have a ton of projects to do. You're super good. Personally, doing this drawing would take me forever; I can't imagine this just being a quick sketch for me. Your great!

Thanks :) If you're slow with brushstrokes and map it out well, you don't have to redo anything which is the biggest help.
