Outfit of the day!
I felt quite dapper. The suspenders and cap are thrifted, the shirt I made from fabric I’ve had for years, the boots are Dr. Martens and the pants are Lastwear Steeplejacks.

My friend Loki started this. We’re trying to make it a thing. Why don’t you help us?
I’m not entirely sure what to say about the process here. Firstly, it was really odd trying to imitate a style not my own after spending so long developing a style. That didn’t last very long. The character’s in pokemon have this very specific head shape that gives them this weird pointy cheek thing. When my head shape turned awkward because of that, I dropped it and redrew the cheek to make it smoother. There’s no point in imitating a style if it just makes the piece turn out awkward I think. Then again, that was really half the point of this little exercise.
The rest of the picture quickly devolved into my own style of thick lines and hard colors. I feel like that would have worked better if I’d matched the color scheme up closer to that of the pokemon world. They tend to have a lighter color palette than I do, but just about as colorful which agrees with me.
On the other side of things, this is actually a fairly satisfying self portrait, and the first one I’ve done in a long while. I’m really glad that I managed to get those pants down accurately, and a little proud to point out that they really do look like that.

enchantedengland: Here you see a lovely example of a topiary garden; where the foliage and shrubs are maintained into clearly defined shapes. As an art form, it is a type of living sculpture. This all sounds very impressive until you have spent six sweaty hours with your hedge-clippers trying to shape a bush into a seagull and ended up with a six-inch misshapen blob. (Not that this ever happened to ME or anything) I do like to admire a topiary, but I prefer an English cottage garden for my personal manor house. It’s easier for my invisible gardening staff to maintain.
