big_heart_june posted a rather lovely gif, which made me want to try out my watercolour pencils. So blame June...and check out the gif because it's yummy.
I do like these Inktense pencils!
Dear artist Flisties - any concrit/tips on how to continue are very welcome!

I might finish this tomorrow, but now I'm off to take Paul to see Despicable Me 3 and get the Minions to make him laugh. The boy needs it. Toodle pip, my darlings.

This is the gif btw

Ok you are going to think I'm extra nuts now, but I'm stupidly excited because I found this thing in Photoshop I never knew existed and it's ALMOST like the blender brush in PaintTool Sai. Those of you who know PS inside out are going to think I'm ridiculous not to have found this before but wheeeee! I painted this and it turned into youn Sammy, and he decided to wear eyeliner, while enjoyed pushing the colours around his face. Ok the hair isn't wonderful (or very hair-like but it was the rest I was more interested in).

It's not high res because I was on a small file when I started playing then cropped it some more. But I'm going to play with this mixer brush some more now. Squeee!

Ok, I confess I'm quite excited. I've just finished my first 'proper' digital painting - not a line in sight (not even under-sketching)! Well, apart from the decorative sugar skull design on his face, but that doesn't count. I'm talking painting and no lines for emphasis or structure. It's experimental but I think it worked? I'm really pleased with how his eyes turned out, anyhow.

For my spnspiration bingo squares: - Slam poetry and inanimate object POV
I've NEVER done anything like this before!! Well, I've written pomes, of course, but I've never read them and I'd certainly be too effing nervous to stand up and recite in front of people so I wasn't sure what this would come out like.
So without further ado
Here it is - the poem recording which makes this a slam. I think!

The Bunker
There’s a rhythm in my life, a pulse that beats even though I have no heart, no veins, no blood.
I was alone for a long time, I counted the beats
I counted the stars above me
I counted time passing through my many doors.

I have doors between worlds, I hold worlds inside and outside of me
Keeping worlds in, keeping worlds out.
I hold fast, I hold them shut
I keep this world safe.
I open them when needed, let air in, let air out
I breathe, sometimes.

There's a new comm spnspiration which is all about experimenting, and one of the posts talked about white space - so I thought I'd try something. Which wasn't really working, and I ended up with this instead.

I've been trying to do some digital painting, using PaintTool Sai and Photoshop. I have no idea what I'm doing or how far to take it but I kind of liked the way this turned out in the end so I stopped here.
