So... yeah... I have pretty much no talent for this.
My faces are both not weird enough for the assignments and are too weird for my usual art. It doesn't matter if I make square or triangle head shapes - they all end up egg-shaped and humanoid. *sigh*
And I'm struggling with the supplies. As a person who prizes knowledge of water-solubility as her best art skill, I boggle at how a water-soluble caran d'ache pastel in turquoise is not going to turn my white paint turquoise when they meet (spoiler alert: it does!)
They kind of remind me of actors playing support group attendees in a movie like Fight Club. Sad, sickly and a little cracked-out. Or maybe just severely insomniac or hung over. And puffy.
I thought I'd share them though as:
1. They're what I've been working on.
2. It's good to see that we all struggle. Not just shiny, happy, successful posts.
Just for reference, here's what I'm supposed to be making:
Next goal: to paint some people on top of a funky background. Wish me luck :-)
