Haise as a dad? I have a great need!!

I have like 10,000 Papa-Haise headcanons! …
I’ll try to keep this short!  (#^^#)ゞ

Haise would be a very affectionate, supportive and enthusiastic parent. Without a doubt, he is definitely that annoying guy that stands up and cheers obnoxiously loud for his child when they participate in competitions, school plays etc. That is, when he isn’t standing aside recording the whole thing on his video camera. 

He’s a complete goofball around his child. Making puns left and right. Always willing to attend their teddy-bear tea-parties, or play the role of the bad guy in their games. However, if anything happened to them, he would turn completely vicious to anyone that tried to hurt them. 

He has boxes upon boxes filled to the brim with his child’s old finger-paintings and school projects. His office space is cluttered with pictures that they drew for him. It makes his desk very disorganised, but like hell if he will move them. 

Literally wrapped around his kid’s finger. Haise’s partner will have to talk him out of doing the dumbest of things to please their child. He just doesn’t like to tell them no. 

Before the baby was even born, Haise was an incredibly dedicated parent. He insisted on accompanying his lover to the lamaze classes. It’s safe to say, he took more out of it than they did, always reminding them to practice their breathing exercises and whatnot. 

As fantastic a father as he is, he can be pretty overbearing. When the child is young, they thrive on the attention he showers them with. As they grow up, they become less enthused by his constant vigilance. 

Co-workers will go out of their way to avoid bumping into him in elevators and hallways. When Haise isn’t busy with work, he is more than likely showing off the latest pictures of his child and partner with a proud gleam in his eyes. 

(Let’s be real. I think this vine sums up ‘Haise as a dad’ way better than I ever could. Also, THIS. Holy shit.)

NECROMANCER in progress

i wanted to do something fun and easy and unfussy, so i’m doing this very small portrait of a medieval-esque person (Bowl Cut, Baby) haemolacria-ing all over the place with a tongue of flame above his head. nice!!!!!

i started off with a pencil sketch. the back of the sketch was then covered in some sienna-ish ochre conté (i think it’s conte, it’s a Stick of Brown i’ve seemed to own forever) and then transferred the drawing onto the woodblock by tracing over the lines. 

the woodblock is 5.25″ x 7.5″ and almost 1.5″. it’s quite heavy and thicker than the usual pine i paint on–i think it’s oak, but don’t quote me on that. this woodblock had an old painting started on it, which i sanded a bit of away and then covered in that weird coral-red, a mix of flake white + cadmium red medium + burnt umber and maybe a bit of yellow ochre (can’t remember, even tho i did this last night.)

this transferred conté design is sprayed with fixative and then dried. 

then the underpainting starts! the first layer is done in just burnt umber and flake white. easy peasy. (that takes us up to the fifth photo)

the sixth and seventh photos show tonight’s work, starting to layer in a bit of colour. more cadmium red medium mixed with a bit of yellow ochre for highlights in the background, and mixed with burnt umber for the shadows. the face & hair got some shadow-reinforcement with raw umber. the vestments got a layer of ultramarine with some raw umber mixed in for shadows.

the banner and tongue of flame are going to be done in gold leaf, hence them appearing completely ignored here
