Hey there! Recently, I’ve been watching this special effects make-up competition called Face Off. I love it so much because as an artist myself, I want to be able to conceptualize like them. Sometimes, I try to sketch out a few of my own ideas based on the challenge, but I’m still unable to draw creatures, so I just do the ones that can be pretty like pixies or half-human stuff.
I LOVE LAURA SO MUCH. I watched her on season 3 and she should’ve won!! Nicole was great toward the end, and I admit that I like her make-up in the finale the best, but overall, Laura did better in the whole season. She’s never been in the bottom and she won lots of the challenges. I’m so happy she got to win in season 5. Speaking of season 5, I love how Miranda improved a lot since her appearance in season 2. I was also rooting for her to be in the top 3. Roy and Tate deserve to be there too, tho!
Anyway, for my org in school, I designed a character based on my plane. The thing is, we are all segregated into 4 different groups which they call “planes” with each having one of the 4 elements: air, water, earth, fire. Based on this, there will be world building and some sort of role-play that’s going to happen. I’m from Aquilo which has air for its main element and the color yellow. Our head also wanted to incorporate a medieval-steampunk theme, so with that in mind, this was what I came up with:
Her name is Aderyn Rae which means “Bird Protector”. Her armor is fashioned to look like a long-tailed widowbird with bronze/copper gloves and boots. She has a feathery tail for aesthetic purposes (like a cape) and machine wings for a little more steampunk. I also added yellow eyeshadow to show that Aquilo color! She specializes in training birds especially carrier pigeons in preparation for the war.I’m happy with how she turned out!
Also, I’m trying out a new art style that’s less time consuming, but still simple and pretty. ♥ With it, I’ve drawn two other things so far. This one is an animated blinking Lorna Morello from Orange is the New Black. I really love her back story as it was revealed in season 2. She’s a funny, lovable person and perhaps my favorite!
Also, I drew this one just today!!
I’m really proud of this ’cause I like the colors I used on her. The decision to add pattern to her dress also worked well. It’s actually based on one of the drawings I had in my notebook ’cause I decided to take pictures of them and practice my new style by coloring those.
So far, I’m not as stressed as I was last term. I just had my midterm exams this week and they’re all okay. I feel great that I was able to do my speech for oral communication class without having a long, awkward pause in-between. I guess I’m slowly getting better at this whole public speaking thing ever since I got to college. It probably has something to do with my confidence too, so that’s a good thing.
That’s it, I guess? I’ll try to write more entries when I’m not binge-watching something in bed or drawing. Bye bye.
