So I finally finished this piece after like a month of putting it off because I don't really like painting butterflies as much as I like painting people. I am really happy with how the butterflies turned out. I spent a lot of time on them and I think that work is reflected in my final piece. I also started another piece on tuesday and spent basically all day on it and I am very happy with the progress that I have made, so hopefully I can keep this painting mood up and finish not only this painting, but also the painting I just brought home from school.
I am really happy with how the first figure's body turned out, but I feel like the face might be too big, also I really struggled with the hand on the right holding up her hair, because the angle is awkward and I struggle with painting heads in general, But I think that the torso came out really nicely and I am proud of it.
I painted a person and my brother got upset- idk why because he flashes his chest to people al the time, but when there is a painting of a female chest, that is worthy of getting upset over??? Whatever, I like my painting. It was very quick and loose but I liked the aesthetic. I am happy with how it turned out. I wish I had written vinci on either my chest of one of my sister's chest to get the positioning better instead of just "winging it," but alas it is what it is, and I am very impatient. I don't think I am going to keep the middle fingers over her nipples, because it completely alters and corrupts my attempted content, but I did it because I was having an argument with my family over the "appropriateness" of painting the female chest in our dining area, mind you, which only came about after I had essentially finished everything, so I don't really see the big problem. So i censored it with some foul gestures and words to make it more acceptable to my family?? I don't really understand them. Also I don't have any process pictures of this because my phone was charging in a different room the whole time I was painting and I was too lazy to get it to take pictures while I was working on it. I might fix the background a little bit later. I was originally intending to just make it the solid blue color, but then I ran out so I used some extra purple that I had used in the skin to fill in the rest, but I might just remake the blue and fill it in a solid color
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
