Rusalka!Sofiya WIP, the result of about an hour’s worth of painting today.. Obvs if you’ve been watching me for a long time you know that 90% of the time the WIPs I post don’t really amount to anything…but I’m really hoping to finish this one. I posted my progress on livestream  and hopefully if I can put in maybe jus an hour a day, I can finish it pretty soon  without having to get headaches from paint-bingeing (and also be able to focus on homework and other school necessities. Crits and comments on how I should progress from here would be very great! There are some obvious things that need work, like the folds in the dress and the weird arms, but if you see anything else glaring pls let me know! :D

Oh shepherd,

Father shepherd,

Father shepherd us

Trying out watercolors in the sketchbook soldiersinpetticoatspress made for me, decided to pin down some of the rich imagery from Anaïs Mitchell’s  ”Young Man In America”, an absolutely stunning ballad about childhood, ambition, and growth. I’d love to do a polished version sometime when I’m done with my lyricstuck :D

1940s AU Jack Vessalius, inspired by Heroic-Plights’s drawing here. Such a lovely idea! It took a while to try and figure out what to do with his waistcoat, and I tried to incorporate the patterns of his original coat onto it. 40’s fashion is so sleek and simplified compared to the whole 1700s getup everyone else in PH wears…oh well. 
This is supposed to be the cover of a playlist, but I thought I’d post the art here first.
