tryin out something new—a few months ago I decided to mess around in Sculptris (basically a free mini-zbrush) and ended up sculpting a Hadrian head. I dug up the file today and decided to take a screenshot into Photoshop and paint over it. ACTUALLY PRETTY FUN.
I’d like to sculpt portraits of more of my characters because it makes for great reference and really helps you figure out facial structure so you can draw them better, but 3D stuff really isn’t my thing, so who knows if that will ever happen haha. Here is the model I used (not the same screenshot tho), I keep laughing at it because lol he bald
I call it late generic lecter sketch faces left
"You can’t act death. The fact of it has nothing to do with seeing it happen— it’s not gasps and blood and falling about— that isn’t what makes it death. It’s just a man failing to reappear, that’s all— now you see him, now you don’t, that’s the only thing that’s real: here one minute and gone the next and never coming back— an exit, unobtrusive and unannounced, a disappearance gathering weight as it goes on, until, finally, it is heavy with death.”
I’ve been on a huge Rosencrantz and Guildenstern tangent recently, to the point where I went and sought out fanfiction. From my search I bring you my twelve favorites- fics that made me laugh, cry, think, “awww”, or any combination of the previous.

Incident behind the Curtain ((shipping, happy ending, the boys realize they’re in a play))
ghost stories ((non-shipping, existential))
domestic pause ((shipping, “awww”))
halved ((sad sad sad sad sad, mild existential))
Repetition of Events ((sad but not as sad as halved,non-shipping, existential))
Welcome Dear Rosencrantz and Guildenstern ((shipping, humor, non-existential))
The Rest is Silence ((implied shipping, non-existential, a little sad))
Any Other Way ((shipping, non-existential, death, humor))
The Unities of Aristotle ((shipping if you squint, non-existential))
The Possibility of Infinite Coin Tosses in a Finite Amount of Time ((shipping, “aww”, existential))

YOU THINK I’M JOKING BUT I’M DEAD SERIOUS
Before we begin: being confident is not synonymous with turning into an ego driven delusional maniac, just as being humble is not synonymous with being self-deprecating and negative. Okay? Got it? Awesome.
Why should you care about being more confident? Ultimately you will feel better as an artist, you will feel better about your work, other people will feel better about you and your work, and you’ll attract other artists with the same attitude, which in turn will likely motivate you to be more positive about your own work and about the work of others. All good things!
As artists we all seem to think that an attitude of negativity is the one that is most acceptable when it comes to ourselves and our work. That is wrong. I’m here to (hopefully) encourage a more positive outlook on ourselves as artists and our work!
