Oliver Tate, ladies & gentlemen! [apologies for the poor quality of the photo].
I just have to get the shading on the coat down, add a bit more detail to his hair and eyes, and figure out a background!
Which sounds like a lot of work, but it won’t be more than 20-ish minutes. He will done soon…as soon as I am feeling better, that is.
Still have some work to do on Oliver Tate, but he’s coming along!
I think after I finish my paintings of Norman Bates and Oliver Tate, I’m going to do one of Harold Chasen. :)
Perhaps later, after my Darjeeling Limited paintings are finished, I will also do a Ryan Gosling.
I want to also do more Wes Anderson characters, since I’m getting better at painting people…what say you, fandoms?
About 20-ish minutes in…took a snack break for some homemade strawberry shortcake!
Now, back to work!
Three new sketches I did in a little less than an hour…now to colour them!
I haven’t even finished my other five or so sketches, but I’m so excited for these three!
”’…I use Trojans, America’s number one brand,’ I say. My dad is a historian. Albeit in Welsh history. I expect him to say that I should be wary of trusting a condom brand named after a moment in history when the Greeks snuck their army—-or penis—-into a Trojan fort—-or vagina—-by hiding it in a giant wooden horse—-or condom—-that they pretended was a gift. When the Trojans got drunk, the condom split and all the Greek soldiers wriggled out and got down to some serious pillaging.”
it gives me time to think.
“I find that the only way to get through life is to picture myself in an entirely disconnected reality. I often imagine how people would react to my death.”
Ask and ye shall receive, indeed! Some of my small dreams have come true this week! Hopefully the next wish will come true, too!
1. The soundtrack to “Submarine” aka Alex Turner’s EP of six singles from the film that I requested on vinyl is being special ordered for me courtesy of a local record shop, thanks to my loving husband!
2. That cute, vintage telephone desk (above) that I asked for from Tome Traders in Henrietta, NY is being purchased for me as an early housewarming gift from my sweet Grandmum! I just need to find a vintage telephone to go with it, and I’ll be set!
Now we just have to find a perfect apartment to move into!
Most of the places we’ve looked at so far have been nice, but the kitchens are wayyyy too small; we’re talking as small as the one from our previous apartment in Albany (which was a hallway, more or less) or smaller—which we didn’t think was possible!! The other thing is that there isn’t quite enough storage/space I’m these apartments and a few have been on the second/third floor, which we’ve vowed to never do again if we can help it!
In short, we’re hoping at least one of the 3 apartments we have left to look at on Saturday will be more spacious!
Ohhh, you wonderful Welshy. :3
Soooo…I have a wicked crush on this young man, but it makes me feel a bit like a pedophile. I mean, he’s about the same age as my younger sisters, and that weirds me out a bit…but he’s really only 5 years younger than me… :3
This film has easily made it into my top 10 list of all-time favourites.
