Don’t lose your waaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

CONTROL YOURSELF is a mini-project I worked on much earlier this year.

The idea for this series is simple: it’s about controlling one’s own irrationalities to the point of forcefully imposing rationality upon irrational things.

It’s mainly shown through the juxtaposition in geometric structures against a mess of other things. The white geometric shapes and lines in the foreground can be seen as a representation of the very thing that occurs in the painting behind it, or as an added stress value to the girl in the background.

Another bonus thing in doing this project was that in the same vein of ‘controlling’ one’s own self, I tried to control the way I coloured. The fragmented colouring style (e.g., the girl’s arm in being made out of various angular shapes in peach and pink colour) was done intentionally to further pursue the idea of control. On one hand, it could be seen as an excessive attempt to break the parts of an organic being down into shapes, once again emphasizing on forced structure and solidity. On the other hand, it was also restricting myself in how I was allowed to blend the colours. I usually blend my colours with soft brushes, but for this I forced myself to use a solid brush.

It may be viewed as a series or separate. The works titles are as in order:

Control Yourself

Cliched Identity

Illogical

Party Poppers / Compress

I’m Tired

Finish Yourself

You will walk differently alone, dear, through a thicker atmosphere, forcing your way through the shadows of chairs, through the dripping smoke of the funnels. You will feel your own reflection sliding along the eyes of those who look at you. You are no longer insulated; but I suppose you must touch life in order to spring from it.

Palette meme requests from my twitter gang! I’ll be starting the tumblr requests soon!

As you can see I clearly cheated with all the colour blending (and I even used overlay for one of them)

I’m currently not taking anymore requests because I ended up getting 20 requests in total for the colour palette meme which is like, with my snail drawing speed of 1 drawing per 6 hours, it’s way too scary for me ;u; But I’ll do my best to finish them all. Thank you to all those who’ve sent in your requests!

OKAY BUT JUST IMAGINE 15/16 year old teenager Edgeworth on HIS VERY FIRST (PRACTICE???) CASE AND HE’S trying to be all cool like ‘of course I’m perfect I won’t mess up” but inside of course he’s slightly nervous and all and this is slightly OOC but JUST IMAGINE

(dives headfirst into a new fandom hello)

Back from camp, have some blop blop sketchbook pages.

Dangan ronpa girls date out!

(If you think any part of the fashion looks terrible it’s my fault I don’t really have much fashion sense)
