Yeah, I.. should update this some time..
And make all the VG icons I told people I'd make ages ago..
And catch up on all the RHTOTD's
..I will eventually, really! ^^;;
I like this proverb. It reminds me that it's ok that the projects I'm working on are taking sooo long to complete..
"The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty,
But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty."
~ Proverbs 21:5
Yayness. The Bible really has some wonderful principles for life in it in places. X3
'tleast I think so.
Anyways, blah blah OH - I started doing impressionistic painting and I LOVES IT!!
Here are links to the two pics I've done this way!!
The first is a tribute to Street Fighter for it's 15th Anniversary!!
As a huge shock ( ¬¸¬ ) I did a pic of Vega! (Balrog-Vega not M.Bison-Vega - I prefer the english names though they make less sense ^^; )
The concept is that later on Vega finally escapes from the mind-control of M.Bison and Shadowloo. He has his tattoos removed to help him feel a final release from his violent past. He goes onward, thinking about the future, though with a twinge of pain mixed with wonderful memories, as the first person he ever loved besides himself is now dead.
Isn't that cheery!!?? ^^; (it's *supposed* to be a hopeful, 'looking to the future while remembering good times of the past' kind of thing ^^; )http://www.shadesofcerulean.com/sc-vegaimpression.jpg
The second is a pic of Nikki from Chrono Cross who NEEDS MORE LOVE (So does Vega, for that matter..) The pic is dedicated to my bud Krysil who is one of the few fellow Nikki lovers I've found out there : (
I like the way the Vega one is more towards realism, but for anyone who knows what Chrono Cross's style looks like, you can see that this is atleast trying to work off of that ^^;
The pose etc, is based off of a black n' white photo of Yoshiki Hayashi as I felt it fitting for the J-rocker to want a portrait done based on a photo of someone who pretty much started the Visual Kei movement in J-rock. *is J-rock oldies nerd, dun mind her* ^^;http://www.shadesofcerulean.com/pets/therp/sc_nikkiyoshikiforkrysil.jpg
Ok, tha's all fer now!! ;3
