Lord of the Lost: Chris Harms by ValkyriePhoenix
Lord of the Lost: Chris Harms
I got bored, was unsupervised, and was listening to Lord of the Lost*. Normally this is a bad combination. In this case, it lead to not sleeping for 24 hours, painting the lead vox of said band. The not sleeping lead to....creative reinterpretation of the source material.

Did I use a reference for this? Fuck, yes I did. What? You think I'm obsessive enough to have memorized every tattoo he has well enough to reproduce it in any ol' position? Which, by the by, is why some tattoos are missing. I couldn't find a good ref photo of those tattoos, one of which is a portrait, that didn't wind up all kinds of pixellated and had the right angle, and I really don't like misrepresenting other people's work. Much better to just leave it off entirely.

*If you don't know them, go look them up on youtube. Absolutely worth the time.

Squirrels Happen by ValkyriePhoenix
Squirrels Happen

I was having a conversation. It got off track. When we went to get it back, I said "Squirrels happen"... At which point I thought, "Squirrels made off with my brain." Which lead directly to "ZOMBIESQUIRREL!" And then this happened to my Photoshop. I have no idea how....
It's not my fault.
Squirrels made me do it.

Lady of the Broken Heart detail by ValkyriePhoenix
Lady of the Broken Heart detail
Detail of :thumb566238362:
It started out as something completely different, and then decided to completely change into something else.... and then write itself a story to explain it. The story goes thus:

Nobody knows where this statue came from, but since even Old Man Benedict doesn't remember a time she wasn't there, that may be expected. She stands in the park near the pond on the east side, beneath an old oak tree. People used to call her the "Lady of the Broken Heart." Old Man Benedict still does. Nobody else has called her anything at all in nearly 70 years, but we all still know her. Every morning the police stop by her. Just to check. For the last fifty-someodd years, every so often, morning dawns and the hand that stands empty, out, as if to offer, or take something, is holding a heart. Fresh, still warm, and invariably human. Those mornings, the police know to look for a body. They don't always find one. Nothing connects any of the victims except time of death. Always close enough to sunrise that the heart is still warm when found, never close enough for anyone to see anything anywhere near the statue. ...Or for the statue to move. The official story from the police is that there is a local serial killer, or family of killers, that includes the statue as a part of their ritual. Locals mostly believe that might have been true, if it weren't ongoing for so long, but that, at this point, it's far more likely that the statue Herself is doing the killing.

Journal History

  • Mood: Anxious
  • Listening to: Emilie Autumn
  • Watching: PsychoPass
  • Eating: chocolate, shuddup, i need it
  • Drinking: Coffee. like always.

I am under challenge to start, FINISH and post artwork of ...meatier meaning. Things that reflect me. Things I deal with, have dealt with, adamantly stand for or adamantly stand against. These pieces WILL BE UNCOMFORTABLE. They are not pleasant. They are not pretty. They are not glories of color and character. They are dirty and hard and often painful enough that I have to take a tranquilizer to actually complete them, never mind posting them. If You don't like or can't handle art that does more than look pretty, do my prescription a favor, don't click the images. No getting butthurt about it not being comfortable and pretty, please, I am going WAY out of my comfort zone by sharing these, by developing them beyond a rough 5 minute sketch I leave in a sketchbook and never show anyone in the first place. Comments about "i don't like this new trend of depressing subject matter. go back to the pretty stuff" doesn't help and outright derision is best kept behind your teeth on these.

Further, "I like it. [and nothing else said]" is also not an appropriate response for these. These, unlike the rest of the work I post, actually MEAN something to me, and often it's either something I dredged up from the dark, dank, mildewy corners of my soul I usually assume no one wants to know about, or it's something I've seen happen that PISSES ME OFF. In either case, comments require full sentences, and preferably several of them. You are not required to like them. I probably don't either. Some of them may bear trigger material, please, take the necessary precautions if you are prone to triggers (and I mean more by that then "I get sad for five minutes") on any of the following themes: Anxiety, abuse, self mutilation, suicide, prejudicial cruelty, depression, body image issues, eating disorders, violent and/
or sexual crimes. Any of these may weigh in on any of the upcoming series of i'd-rather-be-doing-pretty-but-meaningless-because-it's-more-comfortable paintings. You Are Warned. (and it's not my fault if you didn't read all the way through and then click and find something you don't like.)
