:I have another Sven
sans hairspray this time. look ma, variety !
you wish.

this is boring portrait number one of like fifty million i'm doing because i'm trying to learn to draw people.
we see how that is going.

really i just like to draw smoke, and i like to draw his shady eyes and his likkle neck. and drippy lines.
welcome to my gallery, guys ! :la:

i wish i could make him as lovely and delicious as he is supposed to be, ;3; someday i will have skills

uhhh the colors on this are even more fubar than usual, thx scanner.
i considered dodging and burning and gaussian blurring this to hell in some attempt to get rid of the blinding whiteness (see: thx scanner), but i'm tired, and whatever. use your imaginations.

um, this is. what is this. i don't know.
marker, fineliner, graphite, watercolor, gel pen
fingerpainting is the shit. don't even try to argue, because you will be wrong.

the title is something he likes to say a lot; reminds us of our purposes. we reassure each other a lot. it makes sense.
it was supposed to have parentheses around it, but hey dA. if you want to be picky, whatever.

ps,
in real life,
his eye is sparkly.
really.

are you trying to condone smoking? so many people look at your artwork, and this picture is a bad influence on them. I don't think you'd want your children looking at their favorite artist and be subjected to a subliminal message that suggests smoking is good for them.

umm yes.
fingerpainting is the shiizzzz.

I uh. I really really like this. Its markedly different from your normal style but in a really cool way. I feel like the paint just...bloomed from the page, where you wanted it to go, not like it was put there. Its very natural.

and I like his expression. usually stuff with these characters is so dark and gloomy and all (which is still good), but this seems like he's just kinda by himself chillin', or maybe outside doing something.

And in my opinion the glaring whiteness just makes the red stand out more and the shadows seem more intense.

feeeedbaaack. :heart: but no seriously this is way cool

fingerpainting is like. i can't even. it's so calming.

no'm, i don't have a normal style; this is me trying to have one. ):
anyway, this is more how i've been drawing recently, just....no-one's seen 'em.
YETTTTT.

i didn't really care where it went, so yes, i suppose it went where i wanted it to go (: natural is good. i appreciate you saying that.

lol, the angst belongs to Viktor. it just gets on everyone else. Sven generally makes a vaguely contented albeit maybe intrigued by something face.
unless he is bitching about something, but that doesn't count

yes, by himself chillin' in a maze of pen lines. that is what they all do for fun, i guess
INTENSE. okay. i think i fixed most of it, actually, now that i look at it. it is pretty white irl, it just looked too white on ps ):

no u
but srsly
thx <3

btw you need to tell me about these peeps more. It's weird that i'm so familiar with them BUT KNOW NOTHIIIING. lol okay sorry

well i just. i feel like the contrast is an integral part of the mood of the painting. yesss
