– Can I have some gum?
– Sorry, no. Inmates aren’t allowed… It’d look like I liked you.
– Don’t you?
Bennett and Daya – Orange is the New Black
I will scan this painting soon but love how it shines in the first picture!
This sketch is officially finished! Worked on some details again and added more color. I guess I cannot go against my nature. ;) So here it is… again, the Chickening, an illustration inspired by Orange is the New Black.
Red is probably one of favorite characters and I loved her even more in Season 2. She has so much depth! I’m about to watch the third season so please, don’t tell me anything. ahah
*no spoiler, please* *I repeat, no spoiler* *thank you very much* :D
By the way, I really needed one major blog change! I picked this new theme, very different from what I’ve had so far! Hope you guys like it!
When I start this kind of sketches… it is impossible for me not to add more details. Because first of all I love painting portraits so much… but also when I decide to work with oil pastels, it is hard to stop because it is a medium requiring a lot of work and patience and just for the record I scanned this painting 8 times before feeling satisfied. It’s like my eyes can only see the flaws and it looks always worse – than it actually is – once scanned! But consider this Alex Vause portrait finished. You can check out my Facebook page or Instagram gallery to see how it first looked like as a quick sketch (no background and rough portrait).
Oh and… by the way… I am seriously addicted to Orange Is The New Black.
I started to watch Orange Is The New Black a few days ago… hence these sketches!
I knew I would quickly become an addict… The actors are very good and of course, as always, I want to know what will happen. Buuut I had to force myself a little bit with the 2 first episodes since the atmostphere is quite dark (the show is about women in prison… some of them are crazy and murderers sooo you get it). The Mindy Project and New Girl are more my kinda tv shows if you know what I mean (GIRLY stuff, glitter, fashion, cuteness, romance, comedy).
But it was definitely worth it to keep watching it.
These are the pictures I shared on Instagram. Follow me @dontchawannadream
I won’t bother you with boring selfies, I swear! Only my drawings and paintings. ;) Thank God!
If you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook… you already saw this Sébastien Tellier painting! If not… well first go follow me please ahah and well I guess you guys are lucky ’cause today I wanted to share it here on WordPress too because it is France’s National Day!!!
This painting was a request and I cannot say I’m a huge fan of this French artist because I didn’t know his music before… but I listened to some of his songs while painting and I was very surprised. It’s very good music! I like requests like this one because it allowed me to explore something new! Plus, I’m proud to be French and share French culture on my blog when I have the opportunity.
Un excellent 14 juillet à tous!!!
