A portrait commission I did awhile back. Recently started work on a game project, so stay tuned for fun game dev art in the near future. :)

Sometimes I wonder how many different portraits it would take to truly capture a person. Hundreds? Or would it still not even be possible? One of my greatest artistic frustrations is that I’ll never be able to draw how other people feel inside their heads. So, here’s something from the inside of mine. One of the many portraits that could be painted of me. Dedicated to fear, defiance, beauty, and one of my favourite song lines:
“And you punched out all the windows, and the wind began to wail. And you gathered your hair behind your head, like God was gonna catch you by the ponytail…”
And a GIF of the process:
This piece was initially inspired by the song “Tiny Rainbows” by Nana Grizol, one of my favourite bands. I really enjoyed painting this one. I feel a little lighter, lately. Bit by bit. I feel more relaxed in my work, and more me. Nothing but blue skies ahead…
“Our lives blended better than our bodies ever could
In the days when we were made out of flesh or wood
Yeah we weren’t the same color though we knew that we could be
We were ourselves but blended at the edges like it should be..”
Also, another Facebook fan portrait that I did a little bit ago.
Been making an effort lately to come back to the things I love in art, branch back out a little, and see things a little differently.
Also on that note, I’ve always loved painting portraits (probably more than most anything), and I’ve decided to come back to that recently. I recently asked my Facebook followers to submit pictures of themselves to me if they wanted to be drawn. Here’s the first one, and if you want to get in on that sort of the thing in the future, go ahead and follow me. :)
