shawna-smith-sketches:

So this is my grad project I’ve been working on for this whole term. This is the third incarnation of my original idea. I wanted to create a series of illustrations that depict the various ways people express themselves with hair, makeup, and body modifications. I had originally been doing portraits of imaginary people that were more exaggerated in these various aspects. I decided that was not working so my project shifted to doing portraits of real people, initially they were just going to be of people I saw in public who made an impression on me, people I know in real life, and photos floating around on the internet, but I decided to make it more personal and paint portraits of the makeup and fashion bloggers who have constantly kept me inspired me over the years instead!

I also feel that by going in this direction it also helped me sort out some of my confusion and uncertainty in what I’m going to do after I graduate university. When first trying to figure out what I wanted to do after highschool, I was struggling with either going to art school, or makeup art school. I decided on art, which then lead to illustration which I love fiercely, but sometimes have doubts if it really is what I want to do with my life. I first started getting into makeup in grade 10, and my love for it has not showed any signs of slowing down. I think I may instead peruse this route in near future. It’s good to try as many things as you can, and keep your options open!

When discussing this project with my teachers, we decided that aside from displaying it in the grad art show. It would also be ideal to put it online as well in order to possibly get the attention of the people I painted. I feel like I have this very one-sided relationship with these bloggers as some I’ve β€œknown” for years, and others I only just discovered very recently. And yet none of them know I exist at all! I always get such bad anxiety sharing my work with the internet, but these paintings would not exist if it were not for the internet! So here you go! (also it’s 2:30am so I apologies if this word vomit makes no sense. I feel like I’m going to pass out. :D)

This first batch of portraits are:

Tokyobanhbao

Miss Pandora

Albinwonderland

The Cherry Blossom Girl

Michael James

Petrilude

Shrinkle

xSparkage

Queen of Blending

Oscar Herrera


I have a few more planned that I will be completing soon, so expect another post with more of this series in the very near future.

If you are one of the people appearing in this series of work and do not want your portrait shown during the grad exhibit, please let me know!

EDIT: final set of portraits here! β€œofficial” post on my website is here.

My #hair makes me want to cry. Why did I wait so long to do this 😭🌈 it looks different depending on how I flip it, but I’m so in love with the bright green & blue-green. There’s more yellow, pink, & orange hiding!! 😭 everyone thank @demonpuff for completing me. I can’t thank her enough on my own. 😭🌈😭
