It was a cardiovascular attack. It seems that this has been going on for a few years now. He doesn't have long to live... I'm so sorry.
* sobbing* W-why didn't you tell me * sob* about this?! You can't die... You CAN'T. We promised we were * hic * going to be together forever! Didn't we?! You c-can't leave me behind like this! Why would you * sniff* keep this from me? On that windy Summers day of our marriage, I told you I wanted you to tell me everything, good and bad, so we could get through it together, and you wouldn't have to suffer alone anymore! I... just wanted you to be happy!
Where did this disease even come from to begin with?!
It's * coughs up blood* ge-Ne-Ti-c...
You walk into my heart, DIE, leave me wITH A F*CKING PUN-
I've just discovered you and I love your work! Would you mind sharing your approach to composition and thought process on it? Are there any artists you reference? Thank you!
Hey! you found me! Thanks!
I reference from photos for stuff I can’t visualize on my own, and artists like bouguereau, rockwell, leyendecker, mucha for mind fuel
Whenever I do a piece, the objective I have in mind is to not get bored, because once I lose interest, I lose the piece.
So for me, the composition has to be distinct enough to avoid echoing an early piece, and to immediately be recognized due to its layout. It’s gotta be new for me, and new things are fun and exciting, right? (yes they are)
I think about the subject, the action, the actual format (whether it’s allegorical, objective, subjective, i.e. is it a symbolization, a certain scene, would you find it in real life? I tend to avoid the latter, because I find it dull and uninteresting and I hhhhhhhate that) I place priority on the human form, it’s versatile and expressive more than anything else, in my opinion.
Here’s an example. Normally I don’t post my sketches since they’re just glorified chicken scratch, but this is the best example I could think of at the moment. It’s St. George (for my series sanctus), and normally, you’d see him like this
(Saint George and the Dragon by gustave moreau, 1889-1890 )
(Saint George and the Dragon by raphael, 1504-1506)
It’s a pretty common depiction, since it goes back to medieval times. The similarities are that he’s on a horse, he has a spear/lance, there’s a dragon, and he’s attacking it.
The big picture (haha pun) is that I wanted to also have my subject be st george (side note, it’s kind of the theme of the series), but different enough from past artworks where I’d know it wasn’t enormously reminiscent of the traditional depiction. So I aim to keep the basic idea, and see what goes on from there.
This is the first sketch I did, it was okay, I knew I’d never drawn anything like that, which is good, but composition was lacking. I wasn’t so hot about this, so I dropped it. I kinda like it so I might revisit it . Additionally, though, it strayed a little too far from the main idea.
Above was the second sketch, after I’d finished roughing it out, I knew immediately it wouldn’t do. I was satisfied for about 2 seconds, then I got disappointed and stayed that way.. If I put it side by side with the other million or so paintings of st george, I doubt I could tell it was mine. It was practically the same: horse, lance, dragon. The action was too similar to other portrayals.
It’s not as similar as the previous one was, but I didn’t like it. That’s a good indicator too, whether you like it or not. I’d tried to fuse the first and second sketch because I did like the first one somewhat, but it didn’t really work for me. It’s just so awkward …
So I left the piece for a while, and came back and did this. It was different, simpler (which can improve a piece more often than not), and I liked it. After I did most of the sketch, I said great job u idiot it only took you a week to come up with a sketch the hell is wrong with u, went to bed, and woke up happy, and normally it doesn’t take me 3 actual sketches or something to come up with a good piece, and I was getting pretty fed up before the last sketch, but good thing I didn’t give up (this time. hah) This is basically how I go about my pieces for now.
tl;dr Don’t give up! (haha I lied, go back and read)
BTS reaction to you making a pun/saying lame pick-up lines
Jin would absolutely adore every pun and pick-up line you said. He would laugh so hard each time and you two would always get into pun wars. He would be head over heels for you. “You’re just like a kitten! Purr-fect!”
Yoongi would just shake his head with a smile on his face. He would think it was funny, but just sigh every time you told one. Sometimes he’d surprise you by saying a pun or two, but not often. “Are you finished yet?” He would say, with a small sigh and a grin.
He would either laugh so hard or he would just make his famous “J-Nope” face. Hobi would always try to think of ones to tell you, but you could always guess them before he even said them. “Jagiiiiii! That’s not fair! Stop being so good at guessing them!” He would giggle.
He wouldn’t want to laugh, but he couldn’t help it. Namjoon would love the witty humour of the puns you told. Or the pure corniness of your pick-up lines would force a smile out of him, even though he didn’t want to. “Will you ever run out of puns?” He’d chuckle
Jimin would cringe so hard every single time you said a pick-up line, depending on how corny it was. If it was too much, he would just cover his face and have a secret cringe attack. He didn’t mind the puns, he would often guess them but still laugh anyways. “You’re such a dork!”
He would laugh at them and join in saying them with you from time to time. He wasn’t too good at making them up but he would try to go along with it as you kept making new ones up. "You’re so silly! I love you!!!”
He. Would. Cringe. Jungkook would haaate all the jokes and puns you made. He would laugh and cringe at the same time. He would give you the look of just pure annoyance when you said one but laugh anyways. Once you said one he would just shake his head. “Shut up!” He would laugh, as most people do when a pun is made.
