the drug

while life is being an unfair bitch to me, the only means to lift my sunken spirits up is to fill my head with inspirations of things to create. and that is a mean feat as i am in a black hole, in many ways.

enough of depressants.. last night i finally pinned down the composition for something i've been trying to do for days. i'll start rendering tonight. :D and after that i might do the vampire pair G and G when i figure out a baddass pose for them. i'll also be doing the dream and nightmare contest, i can't get the image of bubbles in my head whenever i think of that. other than the bubbles, it's just random flicks of things in my head.

Finally, I was able to make a quick painting (although it's black n white..). I wanted to capture a very bright light on her skin to create contrast. it looks so undone. maybe i'll refine it in the future but it won't be a speed paint anymore..

so i present, an unrefined, spur of the moment creation.

three takes of one subject

This one's made to look like a vintage shoot.
This one, i used textures to make it look like an old photo.
This is the original composition.

black hole

i am so uninspired whenever i'm at work. it's the imagination's vacuum.

online school: not for me

i came across schoolism from a post at deviantart, and thought it was a great find. it gives everyone a good chance to access lessons given by some top artists. so i registered. i chose to enroll in a class. and what the hell.. it is so expensive. the class consisted of 9 lessons which costs ~1000 USD (that's like P50,000). they offered a self-taught version which costs around 50USD! waaah! i could already enroll for one whole sem with that amount. such a shame. why did they have to make knowledge so expensive and elitist.

Portraiting: Johnny Depp

i finished this piece 2 weeks ago. my first time try at digitally rendering someone else's face. fun practice and fulfilling. one note, since you've got to be staring and zooming in and out of the face, choose a face you can look for long hours. (this was originally posted at deviantart, hence the sig.)

Vintage: Shakespeare in Love

Inspired by Taylor Swift's Love Story. Just wanna do a romantic thingy. It was originally meant to show an adulterous Romeo. While doing it though, I made them legit lovers. The girl's dress did not turn out how i liked it to. It was supposed to look like one of Amsale's dresses.. Need more clothes practice. (also originally posted at deviantart.)

I wish i could join this week's CHOW. I wanna do Egyptian gods. I'm thinking of doing Ma'at. Hmm..
