They call me a little grown up...

Sketch of Bradley

... See, I'm upset because I've always been stuck
But I don't know what it is I'm without
Guess I'm in love with always feeling down

Electric Guest - This Head I Hold

This head that I hold...

... it's so tired.

Aichel - wip
I decided to start again with his hair, 'cause I didn't like it, also still working on skin detailing... and I've barely started on the necklaces and the cloak. Ho hum.
I have been utterly exhausted for weeks now - work stuff - and I have decided to give the 29 Faces a miss this time round as a result. It really annoys me. But I'm just so tired.

Eirian - wip
Woefully behind on the 29 faces. Here is a wip of face number three. Another one of Eirian. I was listening to some of Ludovico Einaudi's beautiful piano compositions while painting this - one of them is called Divenire - meaning 'to become'. Seemed appropriate somehow since in this portrait Eirian has begun reverting to his dark elf roots.
You can listen to Divenire HERE. It's amazing.

Ways to be wicked

Tywell O Fewn
Finally managed to finish my demon hunter.

A mountain of a man Tywell stands almost two and a half meters tall. A demon hunter who is also possessed by a demon with which he has a somewhat volatile relationship. This has given him a unique insight into the supernatural world and has made him one of the most successful hunters around. It has also given rise to his nickname Cythraul, meaning 'devil'.

His looks are inspired by the actor Danny Midwinter whose face I have adored since coming across him in one of my favourite episodes of Lewis.

Howie do you do?


We think you've changed!
We know best!
You suck!

We think you've changed!
We know best!
You suck!

We think we know you!

Style icon Howard Stark selfie. Inspired by Bo Burnham's finale of his show 'What'.

This really struck a chord with me and almost had me in tears... because no one should get to tell you who you are or how you should live your life.
Yes, I'm a girl who likes to dress like a boy... what?

Whole lotta grrr...

Tywell - wip
Gorgeous weather today, so I felt obliged to run about outside with the dogs. Teensy bit of progress with Tywell. He appears to be getting increasingly miffed. And now I must sleep.

Return of the 29 faces

Tywell -wip
The 29 Faces is back. Yay! Huzzah! Woot woot! Here's my first face, a wip of demon hunter Tywell O'Fewn. I know it's a bit rough, but I'm very tired tonight and I'm off to bed now.
