You see, a protagonist doesn’t need lose a bunch of loved ones (like Ruby) to qualify as suffering; he just needs to be in a situation where people he cares about will hate him no matter what choice he makes.
Going to do this 30 day drawing challenge…but not in 30 days. Finals at the end of this month so I have to pass and finish first year of med school.
Day 1 is to draw yourself. I don’t usually draw self portraits, but I thought I would give it a go and paint a quick one.
My appearance: I usually have my hair either like a bob like above or shoulder length (like my reclaimthebindi selfie). I’ve worn glasses since I was 9 and for some reason have acquired a habit of wearing it a bit low on my nose (only noticed when my Abu said I did). I also have raccoon eyes, keep my eyebrows unwaxed (and that is how I like them!) and usually don’t wear makeup. Save for red lipstick for special ocassions.
I also wear gold earrings. Maybe it’s a South Indian thing, but we tend to have our ear’s pierced when we are toddlers. I’ve always wore gold earrings that my mother bought from Kerala. It’s probably the one cultural thing I wear.
