[ID: Fanart. A digital artwork depicting Zhongli from Genshin Impact. He stands facing the viewer in a firm posture. He holds Vortex Vanquisher in his left hand and points it down to the side. With his second hand he supports a dragon mask to make sure it doesn't fall behind his head. The mask stretches with a long tail behind his back and envelopes through the ground. The artwork is in yellow, orange and brown tones. The background is gold illuminating from behind Zhongli and brown dust rising around him. End ID]
happy new years you guys ! sorry for falling off the face of the earth, i've been having a lot of executive functioning issues and kind of hating the miserable toil of being alive and yet having nothing to do. i keep starting projects that go nowhere and that's been a well of infinite frustration as well, so it's just kind of been a lot of ... nothing
here's to 2021, and here's hoping things will change for the better from here <3
sooo this is my 3rd (or 4th?) year in a row of an annual tradition of painting self portraits on the 1st of every year! this one is definitely my proudest yet, but i've included the others (+ a few bonus ones from in between, normally done as part of school projects or art challenges!) under the cut
september 2020- something speedpainty. i think this is one of the closer ones i've gotten to my actual face up until now! it was late at night, i'd just gotten done sewing, but the way the lights and mirror are set up in the attic makes my face look super skeletal and gaunt when it's like 2 AM and i'm still up there trying things on. i came downstairs and in a tired fervor wanted to capture a bit of that and then pass out.
february 2020- part of an art challenge. honestly kinda hate it now, there's not enough contrast and the colors are a bit wack and idk what's happening with that nose lol
january 2020- i'd been testing out some new art techniques but also my face is far too wide here. some of the shading is still cool ig and i have cycled back to some of these techniques more recently!
november 2019- i was in a class abt meditation and self-reflection and some other shit. one project was doin an art project based on personal symbolism, meditation, dreams, etc. this is what mine ended up as.
january 2019- uhh yea this was from when i still didnt paint that much and was testing new stuff idk why i made myself so shiny i think i was compensating for not knowing how to do a lot of other things
Chili Pepper (fire boi), and Croissant (spider gorl)! They baby uwu
I need to develop them more tho hah-
anyway like- I got another art piece to post. It has a transparent background though I made a non transparent version due to complications on twitter. So I'm probably gonna post the non transparent version to play it safe? idk.
Here's the second post! Just some fighting poses since I need to practice poses more :v
featuring two skeletons that are stronk :0
Their names are P (aka Poor!Pep) and Tang. y'all might've seen Tang before, though I will say that he again doesn't belong to me but to my best friend. I thought he would fit well with this pose practice considering he's an army man that can do hand to hand combat. While P is here cuz he fights too, since his universe sucks and lots of monsters fight there.
I used martial arts pics as references since those are pretty good fighting refs-
