A place for those who dabble in paint. Or, you know, pixels. Because they matter too.

It's pretty self-explanatory I think. I have a lot of stuff I want/am going to fix, but I think it's clean enough to post. The only reason my other eye isn't there is because on the reference image, there's a really weird reflection on my glasses that's bad enough to where you can see my eye, but not well enough to draw. I'll probably fix it with paint.

I made this a while ago and never posted it, and I'm kinda glad because it has a whole new meaning now. I've never had a boyfriend before for whatever reason and I was feeling pretty upset about it when I painted this. It was based off of "I Found" by Amber Run, and I was kind of in a hopeless spot. I have Asperger's Syndrome and statistics show that only 9(?)% of people with ASD ever marry, so that was a lot to handle.

But then I met Ron. (Changing his name for the sake of privacy.) We met online because we were searching for other people on campus to be friends with. We ended up really liking each other, and long story short we're now dating. I was really scared at first, but now I can't really bear to think about what it would be like without Ron here. He's my rock right now in a crazy whirlwind of college life, and I'm really fucking glad he's by my side.

I just found this painting while searching for my self portrait and my heart kind of dropped. I can't believe that for eighteen long years, I thought I'd have no chance in finding someone who'd like me for me in that sense. It's really nice to be me and feel a bit more normal and relaxed. God I'm thankful for the dork.

Those are some amazing pictures, Geck. :3

Graffiti Tag
Image
Graffiti is like a secret passion I've always had. Probably because Banksy is my favorite all-time artist lol. But I did some research and over a few hours came up with what I think my toy tag would be. I started out basic: the sources I read said to choose a name and a style, essentially. They said there's some really basic and generic names and styles, so I decided that Imitate would be a good start for me if I ever actually became a graffiti writer.

Cliche Fruit Basket

Ugh, my two least favorite things when it comes to art: painting and food. I understand what it's for, but I still hate it. This ended up being way better then how I thought it was gonna turn out, but it still isn't good. I have a collection of food drawings/paintings that I call "Rotten Fruit Collection" because they happen to look like rotten food by the end of the project, so I think this fits.

The graffiti is nice, and the fruits aren't bad at all. If anything, they're just a tad flat. Don't be too hard on yourself, Geck. :3

I still hate painting, but I was admittedly proud and surprised by how this turned out.
