Continuing my theme of people facing the left, we have this picture.
I didn’t mean to make him look so sad.
It did end up reflecting my feelings once I’d finished the face.
I was a disappointed that my drawings haven’t improved much and I can’t quite comprehend the concept of practice makes decent. Anyway, I’m an opportunist so I ran with the idea.
Started writing a few things I was thinking and then let it get away from me.
I’m not self-defeatist…
….I’m just shit.
In the end, I was actually quite happy with it. And if anyone tells me the face is amateurish or the writing is barely legible, I’ll just tell them it was meant to portray my childlike understanding of personal progress.
This serves as an accurate representation of how people feel after drinking heavily without consideration for the following morning. This human, in particular, took MD and forgot to consume water the whole night.
As usual, do not try to make too much sense of this. I was trying to make something that was easy to draw and looked cool. And it was easy to draw…
The stump of a left arm hasn’t been amputated. Actually, Dorothy is a bit of a shapeshifter and he didn’t really need that arm for the time being.
His brain is exposed because he’d be ostracised on his home planet if it wasn’t, even though he was lucky enough to be born without that part of his skull. It does mean that his intelligence takes a substantial hit but that’s the price to be paid for societal acceptance.
His third eye can only see Yorkshire terriers. Unfortunately, Dorothy has never been to Earth so it hasn’t proved very useful.
Don’t mention his thighs. I know he can change them, but still don’t’ mention them.
Sometimes I might feel a bit lazy and you’ll get something like this. I started off drawing a chubby nun but the face became a lot weirder than I expected so I brought the rest of the head to the same level of dementedness.
In the end, it made me feel better about myself and my stresses because I thought, “If that can still smile in that condition then why can’t I?”.
Then I remembered it was only a drawing. A terrible, increasingly haunting drawing.
