My take on Hansel and Gretel. I drew it in pen and ink last weekend, then colored it with acrylic paints, and then, because of course the acrylics messed up the linework, had to go over it in ink again. There is undoubtedly an easier and faster method or medium to accomplish what I want, but even if I'm a little aggravated by how relatively long it can take me to produce a simple piece of art, I guess I'm relatively happy with it.
Appearances to the contrary, this is not fanart for the dearly departed , to those people who even know who Im talking about. Okay, it might have started out as fanart when I did the rough sketch for this like a year and a half ago, but I tried to eliminate his influences from the finished product once I decided to do a completed version the other day, although I probably wasnt all that successful. So while these might somewhat resemble his OCs Bee and Diane, rest assured, these are two totally unrelated characters named, um... Bea and... (EDIT) Dinah.
Speaking of !MDetector5, I never weighed in at all on his banishment from the site. Well, he probably had it coming, but deviantART is a lot more boring to me without him around. This is a bit of a backhanded compliment, but I found his perseverance in the face of his relative lack of talent to be sort of inspiring. As much as I would have dearly loved to join in with the cool kids who got their jollies by kicking him around, I never really had any quarrel with him. Still, Ill freely acknowledge that he must have been doing something wrong to provoke so much scorn and get himself banned multiple times.
This was an original drawing from when I was in college. It's based on an event that happened when I was around ten. I'm sure what really happened was not so pretty, but this is how I remember it. There is a lot of truth in this image. I look back on that time now with great nostalgia, needless to say.
The theme was something about Horror Pin-Up I don't know things, I just show up to take the pictures and edit them ;D
That's not true.
There was a LOT that went wrong with this shoot.
The largest problem was, without a doubt, the HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE lighting that we had-- there was one light strip right overhead that we couldn't use because it caused really intense shadows in the wrong places, a hanging light in the room adjacent, and a projector (like, presentation projector [for reallies]) that we used a reflector to bounce the light onto the models. Oh, and the oven light; the most prominent light source.
Second problem-- space. Or lack thereof. My apartment's kitchen is all of five feet wide. Add an open oven? No bueno.
Third-- Jose almost broke the oven. Well, he DID break the oven, but we figured out how to re-join the door for the shoot. Future cookies may need to be checked more often during the baking process though...
In the end, editing was the most painful. The lighting was so horrible that the pictures were GRAINYGRAINYGRAINY which I HATEHATEHATEHAAAAAAAAAAATE but I tried my best to hide in the editing process.
The original was SO MUCH DARK GAHHHH
I might upload a comparison later.....
ANYWAYS THE POINT OF THIS IS I HOPE YOU ENJOY MY PICTURE AND LEAVE SOME FEEDBACK BECAUSE I LOVE READING COMMENTS THANK YOOOUUUU~
