the rise and fall
“She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful. And let’s not forget that that wasn’t just Annalise taking it off: It was Davis, too—Davis, who remains brave in a world where a New York Times critic can get away with calling her ‘less classically beautiful.’” x
Because I missed the lovely ninemoons birthday I dedicate this to her. Sorry it’s a sad picture PJ, I’ll make it up to you by drawing something cute next ;) Well when I get time as I really have to get a shifty on with my big bang art, so this may be the only art I post for a wee while, why so damn slow woman? I most definitely used a ref for Erik’s face (feel such a cheat using refs, but I want to get the hang of drawing him better)
Oh I’m rambling, but this was inspired by the lyrics
“Things don’t stop and the others announced they’re moving on
Salt & tears in the minds in the mouths of a bad decision
Too late for another mistake it’s bringing me down
With all your faults it isn’t your fault”
by Lifehouse (their whole album is my Erik/Charles break up CD). I have a personal story to what is going on, those lyrics may give it away. But, I like to leave it in the viewers hands to create their own tales, is Charles really okay? Is Erik there to rescue him or was it the other way round? Is it really the final battle? Are they at a battlefield of the mind as well as the body XD I’m quiet evil.
My art always goes fluff, angst, fluff, fluff angst, can porn land in there somewhere please? D:
urgh why is it so hot? Britain you should be cold damn you.
Oh Hai gorgeous artwork! Get on my blog? Yes? Okay!
