Waiting for paint to dry. In the mean time, construct a double sided support/substrate. Always wanted to do this, was discouraged in school, so I’m doing it now. Sheet, shower curtain, Gessos, thread, staples... thus far.
Make it, brake it, shake it, fake it. ®️

Happy Monday Y’all!! Wanted to send out an inspiration board today! I believe that layering of materials makes such a difference in any home. I believe keeping a neutral envelope then incorporating different elements through fabric, textures and finishes can really create depth and warmth in any space!
Hope everyone enjoys......just_the_simplethings
When scarabs come to mind I immediately think of the Scorpion King/mummy franchise. There's a duality embedded in my psyche that I can't seem to shake so I watched them all while drawing this.
This was a fun drawing to do and taught me a lot about rendering a metallic surface and also the colour gold. Gold is such a cool colour - if you place your finger over the bugs head you might see why I think it is. That yellow that dominates the head takes precedence over the entire form and tricks the eye into seeing the colour gold all over. The body is primarily greens and silver with only small specks of yellow in the center and along the edge. It's cool. Reminds me of another movie reference; C3PO wasnt all gold. He had a silver leg in the first three Star Wars films.
About that Pilot gold liner. It has absolutely no shelf life once it is unsealed. Being the only gold liner on the market I suspect Pilot doesn't need a quality control department on this particular product. After I broke the seal and did some tests I put the lid back on with a satisfying airtight snap. No joke, two hours later the tip was completely dried out and useless. Trash. That said, I'd recommend not opening this pen until you're going to put it to use and use it long time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
