Wait, you mean the heart's supposed to be given figuratively
? (to make it easier to get, for those who were confused. XP)
Wanted a new ID. And this seemed fitting enough to follow the last one, haha.
A self-portrait of sorts. This took me a while, but it was so much fun
. My favourite part is the nose, though. And the hair was fun. And the water swirls turned out not to be as challenging as I thought, though granted, I wasn't exactly going for full-out realism. Also, mostly-monotone palette <3 Made everything loads easier.
As for the title, found the word while doing research for a story of mine, along with a whole lot of other ridiculously pretty words to have to do with music and tempo and whatnot. And also. Haha. I seem incapable of doing anything romantic-like without turning macabre. I swear, I'm not like that all the time. Honest.
Feels good to get something done after months of art block. Now, hopefully, I'll be able to get the rest of the things on my plate done. Including commissions I owe (man, you guys are awesome for not, like, having me assassinated by now. They're coming! I just...keep redoing them, or having artblock, and yeah 8D;;; Or midterms. I'm so not a fan of midterms.
Photoshop 7.0 from start to finish. I have 4 different versions, at various stage of completion, and I wouldn't have gotten to this one if I hadn't played around in Painter with it, too. Fun stuff <3
