|Still experimenting with value control and charcoal media, and trying to figure out digital painting.|
“Liebot, what is the saddest thing?”
“A grown man who watches a cartoon made for six year old girls about candy colored ponies is so excited about meeting the voice actress for one of his favorite characters that he spends hours painstakingly attempting to draw her portrait to present as a gift to her, only he can’t get the values around the mouth right so she looks vaguely like The Joker, and when he finally stops struggling and takes it outside to spray fixative on the charcoal drawing to keep it from being ruined, the wind blows a raindrop onto her forehead. While he is desperately attempting to hide the dark discoloration, he tears a hole in the paper. He spends the remainder of the night quietly staring at it in anguish. The next day he wakes up and realizes just how awful it is and decides not to bring it on the two and a half hour drive to the convention. He gets to the convention and then and only then does he bother to check her twitter and realize that the entire time he will be in town, she is stuck in an airport hotel in Denver, and they will never meet."
I showed it to her over twitter, which she graciously thanked me for (probably for not inflicting it on her in person, I swear it was a better likeness when I was super sleep deprived).
I try to draw from time to time.
Most of what's here is Transformers and Pony related, but I reserve the right to doodle things that aren't Hasbro trademarks if the fancy strikes me.
I am on the tumblr now, as that is what all the young people do nowadays, but more art winds up here than there.
