Page Six and A Finished Painting

Wherein Rose carries out on her warning and I call it (temporary?) quits on the "Surreal" painting. The highlighting on the fabric is still ugly, but the rest looks better enough for me to be satisfied until I get bored later and fix it.

In the works of a friend when she saw the inks of this page: "That escalated quickly."

I Can Fix It!

"Wreck-It Ralph" is a great movie by the way. Just thought should be put out there.

Today most of Intermediate Painting was spent making more adjustments to old pieces. A great deal of time also went into my current piece, but again it's going to be a gift so won't be shown here until after Christmas. Instead let's take a look at what I worked on today, and compare them to photos of how they looked before.

First, the "surrealist" painting that I was so disappointed in. Here's how it used to look:

Here's how it looks now. It still isn't finished, but it's a large improvement. The chairs still need work, and several more details will be added to the cheese house and the wine glass as well as its contents. The drapery will also be changed.

 Here's the last assignment I did, in all it's frustrating "glory"...

 ...and here's how it looks now sitting in my locker in the studio. I decided to cover the bricks, but not with paint so thick that you can't see some hint of them. It simply isn't possible with my skill level and the remaining time to fix all those bricks and make them presentable. Something needs to be added along be bottom to make the wall more tidy, and the flowers will be made neater and have more details. It's much easier for me to look at just because the bricks are covered.

Page Four

In which the just desserts start to be served and the heroine speaks for the first time! Also a nod to women taking a stand in the comic world in the background there.

A hero's origin story is often an unhappy one, and this one is no exception. You probably gathered that from the first two pages. To me personally this page and what it hints at are pretty intense, even knowing what will happen next.

Also I just realized that I forgot the electricity on Rose's hand.
