SECOND EDIT:: I can't even....
thank you so much, Siofra and kovowolf! I can't even explain what this means to me.
Really.
Thank you so much.

Full-view for proper res...for some reason it's stupid-blurry in the tinier view.
EDIT:: SHE MADE ME SOMETHING IN RETURN AAAAAAUGH


I...have no idea what to call this image.
"Birth of a Masochist"
"Idolatry"
"Fuck Fuck Fuck"
"Exhaustion of the Clinically Insane"
"Boner Soup"
Were all possible entries.

This is a piece made for many, many different reasons. I was stalking through Gaia when I found a thread one of my favorite artists, :iconchaotic-muffin: made. I mean, I've been stalking her work for like six million years. I saw the opportunity to meet her and pounced. I went through her list of characters and when I came across Pascal, I knew I had work to do. I was going through a bit of an art block and I thought Pascal would be a superb art-block breaker. And he was. I started this with the intention of it being something fun to do, but when I realized what exactly I'd started, I couldn't help but just finish it. I'd planned on spending maybe 5 hours max, but I guess I forgot that FUUUU- ROSES ; _;a
I guess the opportunity to make work for someone whose body of work generally makes you swoon was also a huge incentive to make it the best I could make...

So uh
yeah.
In order to justify spending a huge amount of time on this (approx. 40-50 hours), I fit this into one of my class assignments. The assignment is to tell a story. I'm not sure the image -tells- a story in some way, but it does depict something that I thought to be very beautiful (and frankly emo). The character, Pascal, is a benevolent demon that has an inferiority complex. I translated that as a serious longing for beauty, especially because of his tag line on the post I used as reference. [link]

So...I surrounded him in roses, a flower frequently used to symbolize love and beauty.

If I never have to paint another rose again, it'll still be too soon.

The rest of the week will be dedicated to other class projects. I'll have to do a painting a day for 4-5 days to catch up.
WORTH IT.

(I may change some things in the near-future but if I do, and they're not all that fascinating, I'll just not notify watchers of the changes.)

Thanks so much to those that joined me for the ridiculously long (9-10 hours) livestream session!

hmm...I dunno an exact moment or anything. I'd asked for a tablet and got one for my birthday when I was much younger. Like 15 or somethin'. Just been using a tablet ever since, I upgraded to a better one more recently, but it didn't change the artwork so much as my work flow. Really any tablet will do, as long as you have one with pressure sensitivity. n_n And the photoshop model isn't really of consequence either. I use CS3, though very talented people can do a LOT with Elements, and/or other older versions.

whats a good brand name for a tablet? or one that you think would be good for starters? or one that you really like

Hmm...Well, I'm always a massive fan of Wacom. All of my tablets have been Wacom. The graphires are less expensive but the intuos' are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo awesome.
WHATEVER YOU DO
get one with a detachable cord - the tablet will last you MUCH longer. My last tablet was really in perfect health - but the cord frayed at the place directly where it attaches to the device...so it was unfixable. D: If its cord was detachable it would have lasted me many more years.

Incredible. The significance, your inspiration; the character, mask and horn. It all came together so stunningly, perfectly. Thank you for this gorgeous artwork, and I'm so incredibly amazing you completed the roses. Wow. Just... WOW.

I'm glad you think so. I just can't express my awe of that work, and many others, so I put out words. And intimidated by inbox's.... I'm familiar with that. Thank YOU for replying. I wish you luck continuing your endeavours. I think they'll all turn out at least as great.
