Still Game by s-carter
Still Game
Not many on here will know who these two are, I imagine. However this is Ford Keirnan (left) and Greg Hemphill (right) as Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade [respectively], two characters from a comedy here in Scotland known as 'Still Game'. I'd highly recommend it to anyone but from experience, people who aren't Scottish struggle to understand the humour. 

Nevertheless, it was about time I drew them.

Jessica Lange
I think any 'American Horror Story' fan will agree that this woman makes the show! She's simply perfection :love::la: I've been an avid watcher from the first season, and I must say that she has never failed to seduce me. Fabulous actress.

So here we are, here's an artistic interpretation.

Dame Angelina Jolie by s-carter
Dame Angelina Jolie
Another in the series of celebrity portraits I've been working on.

I adore Dame Angelina Jolie - and yes, she is a Dame. She was appointed an honorory Dame by the Queen of England for her countless charity work. I appreciate that not many people care for her, however I would like to stress that it is only my opinion. 

Copic markers on cartridge paper. I quite like this paper as it has a slight bleeding effect to it. Work with what you've got, right?

Dame Maggie Smith by s-carter
Dame Maggie Smith
There's not much to say, this woman is a legend. 

One of my all-time inspirations as a performer.

The Black Widow by s-carter
The Black Widow
"Got a light . . . ?"

It is meant to be my depiction of the figure 'The Black Widow', the woman who marries a man for purposes of wealth or security, and then he 'unexpectadly' passes away. I wanted very much to include a man in this picture in some way, which I may still do in another, but as for this one there is just the trail of blood to suggest her violence. I was inspired a little by classic black and white movies and 'Film Noir', hence the attempt at the monochromatic colour scheme with just the hint of blood red [no pun intended]. There is also a 'Morticia Adams' highlight going on, or at least trying to . . .

Pose courtesy of Dita Von Teese. I cannot find the reference photo, apologies.

Hope you all enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you'd be interested in prints. :thumbsup:

Hello everyone! :wave:

This is going to be a slightly bizarre journal entry but I would just like to voice something that's been on my mind for a while, as well as find out if I'm the only one who feels so . . .

I graduated just over a year. No luck on the job front on both counts but my artistic energy seems to dwindle; some days I have it in full force, others I'm lucky if I can draw a stick man I like. I guess you could say I'm just suffering from an artistic block of sorts, however for the longest time I've been feeling as though I'm following a path in the dark. I can never seem to see where it is I'm going, or even if the path is beneath my feet. 

Does anyone else feel this way? Or has felt this way?

Perhaps it's a little too personal to post on the likes of DeviantArt but I just wanted to potentially see how others cope with losing their enthusiasm or direction.

I hope you're all well! :thumbsup:

Take care! :love:

:happybounce: Aw, no problem!
Yes, I love traditional work. It's easier to handle than digital (on digital paintings you need much more time).
