Playing around with some Photoshop CS6 brushes, I ended up painting over some of the lines in Sai. The soundscape picture I submitted before is going to be expanded on and part of my final projects for the class, so I wanted to experiment with grungier/stony brush strokes.

I've been wanting to do a scene painting with a childlike Medusa for a really long time now but I haven't had the time, maybe during Christmas break.

Ahh it's my birthday in a week and I have to go get an old filling refilled and possible get a root canal, happy birthday to me. I find as I get older birthdays seem to be getting less and less magical.

Aww, that little button nose!! And I dunno, for some reason, the shading, especially on the snakes, just really stood out to me and made it seem a lot softer...
LOVE!

I feel bad for her. If she has a lover, she can't even look them in the eyes. Still, she could have some good pickup lines.

Hun, I'm petrified by your beauty.

I always thought it went they turned to stone when they looked upon her face..which would be alot worse and could make for some very awkward relationship dynamics. D=

She's really adorable, and I'll probably sound like a dirty old man for saying this, but her tiny boobs just add that much more to her cuteness.

re: birthdays: noooo, you're only turning 20 (right? no? idk.) - you have plenty of time before the cloud of bitterness and cynicism surrounding birthdays comes along.

Thank you<3
Noo I'm turning 19 ;u; I just haven't done anything for my birthday in years. Part of me now kinda wants to but it's hard to get back into the mindset of having something feel special when you've ignored it for a long time. I still look like a little kid too so my birthday is a weird time of the year for me.

I know that feel - I'm basically the same way about Christmas. I used to really love the time of year, but my grandparents passed away in my mid-teens and they/the family get-togethers were a big part of what made it so special for me. So for the last ten years it's basically been passing unnoticed - I am hoping that having my first "white Christmas" will help me get back into it this year though (I am so used to Christmas being in summer, wut.)

For me Christmas is still pretty awesome because I get to see all my family and it's impossible to ignore since pretty much everybody celebrates it (or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa ect)

Oh my gosh you will love the snow, you can sculpt it, go tubing or skiing or snowboarding, and eat it and it looks so pretty blanketing everything. I think you'll really enjoy it!
