Gave a casual attempt at speedpainting the lines I did the other day. Kinda messy. I painted over a transferred trace of the sketch instead of the originals, so I might give it a more serious attempt sometime. Probably with a different color palette.
This started as a casual sketch that I could use to use to do painting practice over, but it kinda… Snowballed. Now I am very fond of these lines. I’m still going to paint over them, but wanted to preserve some copies of this first.
Greyson Fallows! She’s one of the co-protagonists of Bad Signs, and is performing acrobat/sharp shooter turned amateur adventurer.
She normally wears shirts but like hell I was gonna cover up that foreshortening. I’m taking a class on Artistic Anatomy for a REASON.
I’ve been following tweets from on-scene reporters about massive man-hunt, shoot-outs and other stuff (there was talk of grenades/explosions?) happening in MA, just one town over from my hometown, where my dad lives. Not sure if it’s all related to the Boston Bombings, although I been seeing talk it might be. The news hasn’t been very on the ball with accurate reports of things like that, though, so I’m not gonna assume anything until we get an official report from the cops when it’s all over.
It’s still really bizarre following these little updates of reporters talking about seeing cops in full on armor and with assault rifles, or hearing explosions or whatnot. Feels… More real. Unfiltered.
This is all so eerie and chilling. I hope it gets contained and wrapped up soon. I’m pretty uncomfortable hearing about this stuff happening so close to my literal home.
Do not want, yo.
Hope everyone living in that area where this is all going down manages to stay safe :(
I’m so thankful that today of all days, my dad didn’t go into Boston for work, and chose to watch the Marathon only as it passed through a neighboring town.
I used to walk to work along the exact street the bombing happened on. I’d recognize the hotel.
None of my loved ones were there, and I don’t work or live there anymore. But it gives me extra chills to have something like this happen to a place I could recognize and consider my own, rather than someplace far off where I’ve never been.
My heart and sympathies out to everyone who’s been affected by this.
I made a non-homework thing! YAAAAY! And it’s a painting no less! I’m gonna try and do this kinda thing much more often, fingers crossed.
THERE IS LIKE 100% NO WAY TUMBLR AIN’T GONNA RESIZE THIS, so go here to view it proper over on DA.
HAHAH MY ART LOOKS WEIRD RIGHT NOW GUYS I kinda wanna roll with it. It’s less forced than when I was trying very actively for specific styles, which is pretty neat.
So how the hell did I end up on page reading about the Meta-Ethics “Is-Ought Problem”.
And I have like 7 tabs open to stuff like “Tikkun Olam”, “Functions of Myth”, and I fully expect to somehow end up reading about Chernobyl because whenever this happens I ALWAYS end up reading about Chernobyl.
Who needs TVTropes, I have Wikipedia.
