And Again


"Patricia": The Making Of.
Hey guys, so following my "Gerard Way" drawing I decided that maybe I had something, maybe I can try something a little bit more challenging, and then I found Helen Green on She's an absolutely amazing artist and I envy her talent and they say imitation is the highest form of flattery right?
So, inspired in one of her drawings I created "Patricia", a classier, bitchier version of her "Gaga". Patricia is extremely patronizing and she never gives a f*ck, she will treat you like shit and spit on your food. Maybe that's why she turned out to be so imperfect. I didn't have high hopes and I was kind of in a hurry to see how she would turn out, and it ended up taking ages because I was too lazy to finish colouring.
Obviously Helen's a pro and it'll never be as good as hers, but on the other side, I didn't want to copy her. I just wanted to see if I could do it. I will try and invest in better equipment, and my next few drawings will probably be inspired in someone else's but as soon as I feel confident enough about my own skills I'll find my own ground to step on. Inspiration will always be the base of every work though.
PS: I didn't colour her face because I had already f*cked up the hand for not having the right colour, and now she looks like a geisha. And I know for fact that they can be bitches too I saw the film.
Stay tuned, xo.
