I don’t think it looks too terribly off, at least some people could tell who it was. It just makes me proud that it’s going to be there for all the lame people to gaze upon and think it’s some girl. I sort of ran out of time and just decided that it was good enough. Rather difficult to paint on a huge scale, especially when you have to fill in all those fricken holes.
For those of you who couldn’t tell, it’s beside M’s painting of The Suburbs album cover.
Now, don’t ask me why I attempted a watercolor painting of a face, when I can barely spew out a drawing of one, but I did. Thom Yorke just seemed applicable. I sort of dig the outcome, though it’s definitely an abstraction of him. I did originally start out with the intent of doing a close representation of him, I soon found out that it wasn’t happening; so I like to say that I intended for an abstraction from the beginning. I mean, can’t we all agree with that? I think so.
Ah, so everyone knows about the new Batman movie. If not then just leave.
Bane, the antagonist and mortal enemy of Batman was brilliant. Partially due to his immense size and partially due to Tom Hardy. I mean look at the guy:
By the way, am I the only one who thinks he looks like Lupin from Harry Potter? Maybe. Maybe not.
Bane, I would say was my favorite villain but hey, The Joker? Heath killed that. Along with Jack Nicholson. Both of whom I love insanely. Bane just looks plain awesome.
He even has some deep faces even with a mask on. I mean that’s talent.
The reason I even bring this up is the fact that every single time Bane opened his mou….every time Bane..uh..talked…all I could hear was the Snowman from Courage the Cowardly Dog. I mean come on, the way he talks. Mainly the inflections of his voice.
Anyone else catch this?
Watch it again.
Thus concludes my commentary for the movie.
Ah! First set of photos of this project thing. I’ve determined I’m going to complete the background first. Personal preference that way. Then, I shall sketch in pencil to get the dimensions decent. That’s my worst part, past that, I think I’m good. M says details are difficult, I’m going to kill it though. Oh yeah.
First thing to notice, it’s not a completely flat surface, so if it didn’t take me long enough to paint people, this will definitely hinder the process…
Being a perfectionist won’t help me here either.
All the lonely spaces.
I am now embarking on a quest to paint a ceiling tile of my school. I plan on doing this shot of Kurt Cobain, I think I’m excluding Eugine Kelly.
Ah, that’s got to be one of my favorite shots of Kurt. Simply captivating.
Of course it’s a square tile, so it’ll be a face shot. The thing is, drawing Kurt at this scale…hmm…challenge accepted. These next few photos will be interesting, I believe.
I find I
ditching slices of myself,
just to keep tethered in my shelf.
Don’t view that as a prick,
lest you turn and let the cobwebs stick.
