im kind of obsessed with it i cant lie to you

Okay. So. @ipaintjily has really inspired me with their digital painting. Like I look at them everyday, hours at a time, trying to figure out how I can do what they do. It’s a bit obsessive. Kinda creepy. But I don’t even care. Their work is stunning and I have to learn how to paint because of it. It’s an itch I can’t scratch. So. The last few weeks I’ve been watching and taking in all the digital painting videos and advice I could get my grubby hands on. 

Every. Single. Video. Said the same thing. DO NOT FOCUS ON DETAIL.

Like. For whatever reason I could not grasp the “no detail” concept and my perfectionist, virgo ass was like “Oh yeah. I can skip that advice that every single video I’ve watched has given me.” 

Exhibit A. 

    I spent nearly two hours on this monstrosity. Like. It looks nothing like the ref. Which I provided above. And stole from Ipaintjily’s pinterest which is full of amazing refs you can find here. I don’t know what I was thinking. That’s a lie. I was thinking that if I add more detail the better it would look! Logic.

Then I finally accepted that detail was NOT working. So I was like. Well, damn. Maybe no detail will work. Imagine that. I was super skeptic. But I zoomed out till it was a thumbnail size then just blocked in colors and shapes. Then suddenly there was a face? And values? And it was kind of working??????

Exhibit B.

30 minutes guys. Like. What? It’s still awful. But compared to the other??These were done the same day. One right after the other. 

So. Moral of the story: Detail = Bad

also. how does anyone draw without lines?!

Hi Taylor,
I hope this reaches you somehow. I am coming to see you on Halloween, 10/31/15. For you entire career I have loved you. Your song “ A Place in This World” has made such an impact in my life. It got me through the miserable days of moving and bullying. Then came “Mean” that song was my middle school anthem, life was hell. I had moved, didn’t have many friends but you kept me strong. Today I have the most amazing friends in two states and around the globe. You taught me how far kindness really does go. As they say, kill them with kindness.You have been there for me in song since the album Taylor Swift. Ive sung and danced to every song and continue to blast Our Song while driving, singing along. You’ve been there for me when nobody else was. I see you as my role model. I cant see my life without you and your music. I obsess over you all the time to the point when I talk to my parents about you, they just nod. My friends see my joy in your music and find it adorable as I fangirl about you to them. I keep everyone I know up to date on all things Swift. Besides being there in music, you’ve given me insight to fashion, as I model some of my clothes off of your amazing style. I’ve also cut my hair a few times to match your cut, I wont lie. You and your cats have introduced me to amazing television shows as I now watch Grey’s Anatomy like its going to disappear tomorrow. My whole life has begun to revolve around you. Its nearly scary but it keeps my life exciting. Somehow I will try to get you to notice me. Even a hi or wave will make my life. Loft 89 would be heaven but being at the concert will be cloud 9. Im so lucky to have had you here for me for so many. Cheers to many more.

The girl who will be wearing blue scrubs in Tampa.
