Laura Mvula - She
I felt like drawing something for myself kind of...and I think this came out alright. Normally I'm really horrible with the amount of time it takes me to do anything, but this one seemed to come out quite easily.
He's a character for my ANDRO✰ comic. It's quite a while before they have any relevance actually, but I'm so far ahead in my mind with the story that I can't help but put some of it to paper.
I'll be taking ANDRO✰ off hold and start updating soon again. I just want to finish up chapter 2 before I start posting again (so it'll be like a 10+ page update). Then after that there will be a bit of side story ( I guess I can call it that?).
It's been a looong while since I've updated my blog, I know, but I don't want to abandon it. I think this is the only place where I can kind of...freely write down my thoughts on everything and every piece I work on without over crowding the picture itself. I feel like keeping this updated...well it kind of keeps me grounded a bit maybe...
It's strange because it seems like so much has happened, even though my last update was what? Oh god , like 4 months ago. That is quite a while I suppose...Anyway. I...well I do have so much I want to say, but I'm not sure how much I -should- say. Life has been tricky, and I feel that the more my life progresses in the right direction, that the life of those around me seems to kind of..take a swerve into some crazy one. Particularly my younger sister...I feel like I've failed her. Big time.
Like...I feel if I didn't leave, everything would be so different...And that she wouldn't be stuck how she is... I guess the picture is kind of a representation of ..well just someone who can make things better. That can fix everything...I was definitely thinking about my sister non stop while drawing this. I was a sobbing mess really... Had to kind of tilt my head back so I didn't like, get the paper wet haha. It was even more difficult when Tom came home and like..I hate crying in front of him.
But yeah...I just want things to work and for everyone to be happy and just make the -right- choices that would be better for them. I wish she would listen to me when I talked to her, but it's her life at the end of the day, right?
I have a load of other pictures to upload, and things but , I'll do that soon. I won't wait 4 months that is certain.
...Yeah. Time to make some tuna potato...In the mean time you can listen to this :
