Nearlly did this myself whilst giving myself a covid cut.

Your covid cut was almost a Van Gogh cut! :D

I had a pair of clippers and got it nice and neat. We had a spell of warm weather, too much time on my hands, a razor and an idea, a bad combination. My ear is still there, well both of them actually, but there was more blood than I would have liked. Now, arctic air has brought us snow. My ears are blue as is my language.

I have a suspicion that Covid was responsible for a lot of bad ideas that involved hair and sharp cutting objects - it certainly was for me anyway :D Avoided the blood letting myself and have been fortunate with more temperate weather so no Smurf ears for me! :D

I like how you can almost interpret his expression as being a bit judgey of the scissors for "missing". Love the texture technique you used, it came out beautifully.

Oh my dear... what is happening in the space between your two ears :-)

The idea behind the older pic is hilarious as well *chuckles*


I admire the textures in this one, they seem to be so hard to do in digital media to me.

The trick to expanding the space between your ears is to cut one off and then the space is infinite ;) :D

The paint 'feel' was fun to recreate... I even painted little highlights on some of the strokes to make if look like wet oils 

Cheers!
