don't get me wrong i have done SOME work this term... it just doesn't seem to be as much as what everyone else has done!
in light of this i have spent the past 2 days working my 'bum' off to finish another digital piece
and it's FINALLY done!!!
trust me, yesterday afternoon/evening i was just about ready to throw my macbook at the wall (i worked on it for 8-9 hours straight before giving up) because photoshop makes everything else run so SLOWLY (no snide 'mac' comments please Mike...)
it was the same today but after another 9 (yes... NINE) hours working on it i think it really is finally finished
i'll no doubt hate it tomorrow and spend another few hours 'fixing' it but for now...
may i present the 'Midnight Burlesque Girl'
you'll have to click on her for a full view, well...
for a fuller view since the actual file is about 3200x5120 at full size!
now you'll understand why photoshop was so FREAKIN SLOOOOW!
i guess she can be another Halloween themed Pin-up... maybe... perhaps, if you squint a lot!
nah maybe not! but come on... she is a bit creepy looking, uber pale and all smokey eyed, she could pass as a vampire or something... right?!
she was also inspired a lot by Moulin Rouge
you see... she was supposed to be all colourful and happy and circus themed
but then i watched Moulin Rouge (about 3 times in a row) and this was the result
you've got to admit she has a definite 'Satine' vibe about her
and as always i 'tested' the image on Mike first...
he's my sounding board i guess, he always gives an honest answer and opinion about my artwork so he's a good pal to get feedback from
anyway if i remember correctly his response was something along the lines of...
nah its epic.
colours work. background's not pixelated... some would say it was geniouse'
ahahaha, see... always an honest answer!
oh and that isn't a typo, 'geniouse' is a sort of joke in reference to another college dude called Meg (sorry i mean Chris. his name is actually Chris yet everyone calls him Meg... as in Meg Griffin off Family Guy... what can i say, it's a long story)

ok enough rambling about my friends, i'm sure that's not why you read my blog so apologies for that shred of normalcy!
time for some tea and a bit of 'Mad Men' now
by the way... if you would like to be even more of a star (you're already a star because you're here reading this but there's always room to be even more of a super star) then pop over to my 'art wanted' account and help boost the views for this new 'Girl' - Midnight Burlesque Girl
that's all folks...
arrivederci mia amicas e amicos!
