Hi, guys! This piece is now available as a print on Society6!
Also I lightened it a shitton so it’s not a muddy mess and you can see the detail! Yay!
Creepy, Grim, and Scary, by Juan Hernandez.
I could make my life easier by not coloring beforehand… but it makes special effects pop out more.
STEP 1: colour block and sketch simple composition for last min thingamajig on photoshop and figure out how I’m going to tackle this traditionally in gouache and perhaps some other “special” touches.
I’m not good at all this planning. I’m usually impulsive (and impatient) so I tend to just GO for it.. so while I love painting with real paints, it’s a real challenge for me to actually slow down and plan rationally.
(We’ll see how it goes tomorrow)
side note: she wasn’t so geometric, but I wanted to quickly find my colours so I vectored the whole thing (yes, that’s quicker and easier for me) but the geometric look is kinda cool beans. LA LA LA
This. All the awards for Penelope. Here’s a fairy tale about a girl cursed at birth with a huge flaw in her genetics: the nose of a pig. Forced to grow up hidden away in her home, with a mother who scared her from ever entering the outside world, in fear of people cringing at her face and ridiculing her. She spends her whole life being told by her family that the only way to break the curse is to marry a man, for only another’s acceptance of her face would break the spell. But in the end, she runs away from her wedding, realizing that she doesn’t want to enter a loveless marriage just to break a curse she was born with. She doesn’t need a man to cure her, because she’s perfectly fine exactly the way she is. She finally accepts herself and loves herself for who she is, flaws and all. And that, my friends, is how the curse gets broken. Not by a man, not by true love. But by loving and accepting herself. Ugh, absolute perfection.
