This is paired with my previous painting, which, if you scroll down on my main page, you should find directly below.

And here’s a little extra guy I made:
Today is a day of Not Feeling Great
Latest art piece from school this week
The initial face took about 45 minutes I think but messing with the expression was trickier, especially as I didn’t want it to look too happy.
I don’t know what I’m doing artistically anymore, but this one’s ok.
