Chapter three part two :) it’s only nine pages this time cause if I uploaded ten it would have messed with the flow of the chapter too much. Chapter three is really meant to flow all as ones especially at this part but due to how long got is I have to split it up :/ so I won’t be uploading anything but my comic for the next while :)
The scans turned out a bit better this time, I’m still not 100% happy with them though :/ I realised too much light was getting in and I have to hold down the scanner lid.
Thanks so much to everyone who has been reading this comic so far and for all the support and wonderful comments :) it makes me so happy to share my work :) I’m sorry I can’t thank you all individually!
Some fun editing pictures :)
I might draw a background on this later or use it in a collage. This is definitely a recurring image in my art and keeps popping up in my sketchbooks :P I’m thinking about making her/ him (I don’t know…) into a doll :)
The final piece and the original drawing :)
I doodled this in my sketchbook the other night and decided to finish it up as a watercolour painting. It’s another one of those things I wanted to draw but promised myself I wouldn’t and then ended up drawing it anyway. I keep drawing deconstructed people and I wasn’t sure exactly what it meant for a while, it was just based on a feeling, but then the other night I figured it out. Basically for me organs are the root of human emotion and when you strip the other elements away your left with the persons bare feelings, making then kinda vulnerable. It’s not a gruesome as it sounds, I mean it in an artistic, visual sense. So anyway I kinda get that vibe of some of The Cure songs, so yeah…
Also I’ve started to figure out my scanner a little better and we’re beginning to have a more trusting relationship. :P
A poem I wrote the other day incorporated with a collage experiment :) I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’ve been writing quite a bit lately and I’ll hopefully do more stuff like this as soon as I manage to get off that bloody bass guitar! My head is melting in a sea of songs, I keep jumping form on to the other and my head is spinning. I actually dreamed about bass lines last night, how weird is that? I could just see the next of the guitar and all the notes of the songs I was playing being hit. I think I might have a problem…oh well.
Finally I finished some of chapter three! I’ve decided to upload it ten pages at a time cause it’s so long.As usual the scanner wasn’t kind to me so it doesn’t look great :/
It took so long to get done and I really had to force myself to sit down and do it. I’ve been in a spin with this summer assignment hanging over me, I tend to over think it and get stressed out, I’m not really sure what I’m doing with it to be honest. Still I’m determined to finish this comic before the summers out!
I’ve also been really distracted by the bass guitar, I love it so much! It’s such a great escape from things and all I want to do is play it for ever and ever. My fingers are so sore (and covered in paint from finishing these pages :P ) but it’s not going to stop me. I’ve been playing for just over a week now and I’ve thought myself The Lovecats by The Cure and Israel by The Banshees, I’m also in the process of working through several other Cure songs :D I couldn’t get them to sound right for ages but then I realised last night I was reading the tabs wrong -_- I can’t believe how I was reading them I’m such an eejit! Lol :P
Look at all those people out there doing things…
A self portrait in collage :) it’s inspired by the work of Dale Chihuly and Lauren Child, both artists which I admire :) I saw Chihuly’s work on telly the other day for the first time and it’s gorgeous! Really inspired me :D
I did myself up to look like Robert Smith during The Top era the other day and used a photo I took for reference :P I really am overly obsessed! And to add to the obsession I picked up a base guitar about two nights ago and started teaching myself Love Song and Love Cats :D my fingers are starting to blister but I’m having a lot of fun anyway :) :) and I also have like no control over my baby finger :P
And…more summer sketchbook stuff!
This one is based on Bananafishbones by The Cure of course :) one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite albums The Top :D
I drew some stuff while listening to disintegration too which turned out a little weird…but anyway I’ve been having fun with this editing program 100Cameras so I thought I’d include some edits.
It’s an awesome app and when you read the names of the effects it sounds like a really epic song :D they’re called stuff like ‘around 3 am when things really got crazy’
A Stolen Heart
Another drawing from my summer sketchbook :) I drew this while listening to The Passenger by The Banshees on loop :P for some reason YouTube has stopped me from listening to their greatest hits album :/ I have to use a PC to watch it even though I could before…strange.
I really enjoy drawing characters like this, I started writing a bit today just some abstract poetry kinda stuff and hopefully it’ll spark more drawings like this :)
A doodle from my summer sketchbook for college :) I was playing around with some filters trying to make the photo sharper, the light wasn’t great, and I though the noir filter looked pretty cool :)
I’m not sure I like the colouring pencil with this style :/ but I’ll continue to try out new stuff as best I can :)
