Not a lot’s been happening creatively over here lately - my brain’s been too much in “!!!!!!” mode over black belt testing and work stuff. But! I finally pulled out some of the reference photos I took last time I was at the Minnesota Zoo and sat down to do some painting and it felt so good.
This is based on a photo I took of one of their beautiful Amur leopards. (I love these guys SO MUCH.) Digital painting, done in Photoshop using my Wacom tablet.
I'm from a small town where these things (adults around 19 dating minors around 15) happened all the time and they were honestly always awful? There's an obvious inherent imbalance in such relationships it frustrates me when people fail to see it, I get so mad I swear

“even in high school, i thought maybe there was a chance it would go away and i wouldn’t have to tell the world about it. once i knew for sure i was going to be this way my whole life, it became necessary to have everyone know.”
