Well goddamn.

I don't think I have EVER spent so long on 1 picture, it's almost like I've grown attached to it. I don't think I'll ever be happy with how it looks, but I've reached the point now where I'm just like.. FUCKITALL.

This wasn't intentionally done for halloween, but I guess I timed it pretty well. Threw in a couple pumpkins and VOILA. You got yourselves a festive piece! It started off with me just wanting to paint a picture that included my favourite flowers of all time (Wisteria), and it just evolved from that.

The one pretty whopping mistake I made and I've now noticed is his cigarette isn't smoking. I might change that in the future, but for now, lets all just assume he's hipster and smoking a LIT cigarette is soo mainstream..

edit// my 3rd daily deviation. Thanks alot!

I want to write about this guy. I really do. I saw this barely three minutes ago and already I'm developing supporting characters, a backstory and a plot.

Thank you so much for the inspiration.

It's going to be a queer romance with plenty of stuff on the side. I'm going to enjoy writing this.

Incredible detail work! I could stare at this for ages, picking out little knick-knacks. What impressed me most at first was the rug - did you draw that whole weave by hand? The perspective is really great throughout the piece, everything blends into the background beautifully. That's especially impressive on the rocking chair and birdcage, since curved lines are so rough to put into perspective. Bravo!

As for the cigarette, I'd assumed it was a paintbrush for some reason until I read the description - so it's not like it's noticeable! I really like the boy's feather earring, cute accessory.
