The Mortician: finally finished!


Whew! I've been working like mad at my thesis project, going through a lot of changes and revisiting pieces I submitted, I wasn't satisfied with the level of completion I'd left them at. This is the third piece in my series, and I had two Oscar Wilde quotes in mind when composing this scene: "This suspense is killing me...I hope it lasts" and "I want my food dead. Not sick, not dying, dead". They made me envision a really morbid, dark individual. Also lots of the food in the victorian era were tainted with pollutants and toxins, making a lot of people quite ill.

All work and no play...


Yay hand monster!

So recently my school work (mostly my thesis) has been gradually transforming me into a hermit, and I've been almost entirely just been focusing on schoolwork, no art for fun. I got fed up today and doodled this up pretty quick. I'm kinda liking it so far but it has a looong way to go. But I'm happy that I'm learning in photoshop...gotta keep trying :)
