two finished things (no reference, both imagination).
FIRST PIECE: the fire girl or whatever is still kind of sitting in my brain. I started this Friday afternoon (after finishing my 25) and finished it today (about 5 hours of planning/getting the direction, then under seven hours of painting today). I might let it rest a day and then re-attempt those clouds (they’re so childish looking?). Pedro gave great critique, one of which is…why the fuck is her right hand facing towards us and the fire going the other way? LOLL
NOOT (old): UGHH wasn’t ever happy with this, I think my process here was…just fucking terrible haha. No attention to the composition, lighting, and the values feel so weird…and then I was “fixing” as I went and redoing and god…it was just the worst.
Anyway, here are the headshots and a writeup. I’m going to redo the fullbody in the future because it’s just absolutely butchered.
After the Monte Rosa mission (summary: Noor caused group to separate/get into trouble), I believe Noor shifted the initial guilt she had onto her peer’s “incompetence”… (I feel like I ooc’ed her guilt in that rp with Eve/Castel, but i hadn’t rped her that much at that point). She didn’t take the blame, nor did she apologize for anything…
Anyway, her bond with Evelyn has probably grown; she can tolerate her compared to her other peers. I believe she treats commanders and officers respectfully and her charismatic side comes out, as she is probably looking for one-upsmanship.
it’s a shame that she can’t bring herself to become less fierce towards other students. She sees all of them as a threat to her progress (except Evelyn, whom she can solely get along with because Evelyn does not take Milizia seriously and therefore isn’t “in her way”).
However, she has learned to cooperate a little better for the sake of accomplishing stuff, but still quick to criticize.
I think her relationship with Evelyn is lovely, though. It’s such a wonderful counter to her seriousness. She definitely takes her relationship with Evelyn for granted and will probably continue to do so…even if it’s undermined in teh future she would keep her head held high, too proud to acknowledge her connection to an important frienid…
tldr: the smarter, headstrong, and focused female version of Kuro, bahaha.
whoa big shit dump
some select things from 25 per week since the past ..however long its been??
anything with an “x” is from imagination…
not much to say…except…hopefully i’ll improve before i’m 50 years old
next on the agenda is to do a finished piece each week while keeping at the 25 per week :’D oh god
chacha’s gross art dump.
this is from friday. can’t say i’m too happy with anything except for the black swan stuff *_* only 3 pieces of imagination in here. last week was rough, i’m surprised I finished……………………
i have drawings from last tuesday too and from tonight that i’ll upload if i’m still awake.
Thanks to Airi for arranging them <333333333 mwaaaaaa
HOKAY my 25 dumb. i actually finished these last night, but Airi wanted to arrange them for design practice. she did a great job *___*
MIXTURE OF STUDIES / IMAGINATION…should be obvious…
study dump. imagination and self portrait from life is in there bahaha
WEIRD HAPPY CHICKS ARE FROM IMAGINATION
also yes these are slower than the last batch…30min or more each
…Thirty studies! LOL so I didn’t quite reach fifty. But I’ll add on a bunch more tomorrow. It’s a wonder i even got some done with the event going on haha.
First three are from imagination! The rest are studies except for that weird blue one near the end. Derp.
ahh…my self-destructive little bastard. he can give me quite a headache, but he’s also extremely rewarding to explore.
After Maimi moved out, Kuro had acted as though he was apathetic to the decision because he was so self-absorbed and consumed by delusions (and still is). And to be honest, I think once she was gone he started having some regrets. Maimi lived with him for the past two years and he completely took it for granted. Now, after butchering everything with Maiko, I can imagine he feels an incredible loneliness that he doesn’t want to face, and will therefore mask it through other means. In a sense, it’s a repeat feeling of his childhood, except entirely self-caused.
Kuro is quite afflicted with depression and frustration towards himself, but he’ll continue trying to convince himself that external factors have caused him to be this way. And… I look down on Kuro quite a bit for the way he handles things. He could have stopped Maimi. Not to mention, if he dealt with himself better he wouldn’t have betrayed Maiko so badly in the first place.
Yet how far can you blame someone for being blind to themselves? I always wonder that, especially when you’re from such a dysfunctional household. I suppose that we all have to carry the burden of being aware of who we are and how we treat people, though…there aren’t many excuses for that.
…But I really do have a soft-spot for him. I think he’ll come around once he faces himself, and I really believe he does care for Maiko—-unfortunately it’s to the point of having no idea how to handle it properly.
And facing yourself, of course, comes with consequences. Being aware of how shitty of a human being you’ve been is a terribly bitter pill to swallow, especially when your pride and confidence is derived from shallow shit in the first place.
Not sure if he’s going to do any genuine apologizing any time soon…he’ll have to fall a little harder, first.
EDIT: BTW..big thank you to Beta and Kramp for going ahead with some gutsy RP. I know it had some consequences for the characters, but it was really great. Thank you. *__*
She’s probably going to let her hair down a lot more, as well as let it grow out—which is, to me, a sign of her ‘conformity’ to a more feminine ideal and her desire to change who she is.
Her emotional stability is…extremely fragile at the moment. I can imagine that moving out from Kuro’s place left her feeling some rather cold wind. Even if she’s comforted by the fact that she’s moving in with Mio, she’s filled with uncertainty, self-doubt, and self-pity since Kuro didn’t stop her from leaving.
Both Kuro and Maimi are both at their ‘low-points’ in their lives, so they are too self-absorbed to acknowledge one another.
She will probably surround herself with a new social circle which consists of more ‘academically-focused’ people (Mio, Haruto, Sayuri, and i might self-rp her with Teiko). Maimi will tell herself this is necessary in order to be smarter, more reserved, and fit the cute-girl image that will help her get a boyfriend. Though, in all honesty, it’s also to distract her from the problems at hand (her delusional crush on Nana, not being attracted to men, her questioning/doubt of her faith and her family).
Another point is that she probably wants to stay away from drama after Atsuko/Kuro/Maiko/Ryu/Tomo/Nana issues—hence pushing into a new social circle. Even if she doesn’t acknowledge it, part of her wants to get away from the people who DO know about her situation (Kuro/Atsuko) so she doesn’t have the reminder.
Anyway…Maimi will say she’s happy over the changes, especially if she acquires said-boyfriend. In fact, i’m certain she’ll feel bliss when she’s reunited with her family.
however, she’s suffocating herself by doing this imo, and her denial will only destroy her in the future.
studies from photos & a few artists (jason chan, jaime paick, craig mullins)
