It’s wonderful to know that my art tickles your fancy enough that you want to see more of it.
Speaking of my art, I’ve recently gone to a portfolio review to assess my portfolio. So basically editing things, removing and adding, setting in the right direction, basically getting feed back and guidance.
Mine went over very well. I was told my work was very sophisticated and impressive. All I really need to do is just add a few of the basic things, such as a couple still life drawings and a sculpture or two, which is not an issue what so ever.
All I’ve left to do now is finish the things up and submit it the school and wait. I’m fairly confident of my acceptance, I’m not so much worried about them liking my portfolio but rather that my marks are good enough. I’m almost positive they will be since I’ve never come close to failing a course, but it’s in the back of my mind.
I’m sure it will be fine.
Red heads and birds, two things I adore painting.
Water colour, two hours.
I think while making this I had in the back of my mind the thought of the hundreds of young virgin maids that Elizabeth Bathory killed in the name her of her overpowering and narcissistic vanity issues.
I figure she is one of the young ladies sent to the palace to learn proper court behavior and was only planned to be killed in the name of the countess’ vampirism. The twist being she knows of the horrific schemes to take her life and rises against Elizebeth in a murderous battle of wits.
And considering she’s wearing pumps I would suppose it’s a modern spin on the occurrences.
Acrylic paint, four hours.
A cow skull I painted last year.
I recently took some better pictures of it for my portfolio in a make shift white room.
This is the finished piece of a WIP I posted earlier.
I may enter this one along with two others into a scholarship competition. I’m still debating and will have to see with what ever other art work I push out over the next month.
Acrylic and water colour.
When drawing pretty things fails I resort to intense derp.
I mean, I fiddle around with ms paint every so often but other then that I’m photo shop illiterate.
I had photoshop CS3 for a while and I tried desperately to train my self how to use it, but I never could wrap my brain around all the tools and how to use layers.
I do love my traditional work but it just gets me down when it’s usually digital work that gets the most recognition on the internet, especially regarding fan art.
I find myself pleased with a slash piece until I see someone who has done a digital work and gotten thousands of notes. I just don’t think traditional pieces, scanned and posted catch the eye the same way a digital one does.
It makes me a bit sad at times, but the only thing I can really do is get over it and move on. I don’t think I will ever be able to understand all the workings of painting programs, no matter how many tutorials I watch or how many explanations of how easy it is I get.
I’ll just be sitting here with my paint brush and my paper.
Inspiration from Fiddler on the Roof.
Anna and Ruby.
I drew this for SPN Fem Slash Week.
