SHOT - Weeded Autumn Bird

SHOT - Weeded Autumn Bird by luckylace222


This is my contest entry for VictorAndLizzy's SHOT Contest where you had to draw yourself or a representative character shooting yourself with a "hand" gun.

I started drawing the picture in the lobby while waiting for my dentist appointment, and I always think about morbid things at the dentist, so that may have added to the unintended dark atmosphere in the picture.

It is a poor-female-anatomy representation of a bird shot in the Autumn. I was going for the "kill two birds with one stone" reference, but you could not do multiple characters, so I just opted for one "bird." If not for the terribly confusing detail, you could make out the ruined feathers, weeds, leaves, blood, and debris from the shot. The bird is a little angel now. -I think that was what I was going for.

I kept getting distracted drawing this picture (playing Slender, eating, watching Youtube videos, Tumblr, PORN) which frustrated me because if I do not finish something immediately, I have trouble coming back to it. It took a good deal of determination to finish this picture, and I thank VictorAndLizzy for letting me have the disciplinary experience.

Bic pen and lazy Photoshop coloring used. I know it is impossible for you guys to find Koji in this picture.

luckylace222 Oh, I mean "Thank you." I humbly accept the prize. YOU CANNOT TAKE IT BACK NOW.

Your comment is funny because:

1. "OBVIOUSLY, my mind was blown xD" Was that meant to be a pun? Because if not, that is even funnier. My humor sense is getting more and more corny and ridiculous. How does Moses brew his tea? Hebrews it. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

2. "I'm glad we were able to relieve you of your contest itch!" I woke this morning with my first intense case of itchy hives EVER. I am so freaking itchy right now while typing; When I went online, I see this. THIS IS *scratch* what I get for *scratch itch benadryl scratch* winning a contest *throws everything out the window*

HEY. You know what? -Just thanks for even having the courage and determination for starting a regular FAC contest. I really appreciated the extra "activity" to FAC, and it was only natural to pay my respect by entering myself. Maybe when these new FAC remembers get older and possibly stay with FAC, they will want to contribute their two cents like this too!

Dang it, I lost 5 points in originality. NOT GOOD ENOUGH- START OVER MY ART CAREER

luckylace222;___; *scratches her butt profusely* WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME LIZZY AND VICTOR YOU ARE CONDEMNING A BEAUTIFUL SOUL!

I drew that picture immediately after I read your comment (so not to lose all my good feelings, it is best to draw at the moment). When I cannot express my feelings adequately on FAC, I tend to cheat by distracting them with pictures. It probably worked for you.


I have made the request on your profile! P: GOOD LUCK FOREVER. I am sorry for the dumb request- LOL!

luckylace222Also, I thought either Tofu or Ren were going to beat me. If I was running this contest, I probably would have score-wised been beat. I am probably my worst enemy artistically.

luckylace222I usually push down on my pens. How much pressure you put your pens truly adds to your art style as well. You should try all pen sometime! It is fun! -When you can break away from teh comfort zone of pencils!

DemonCat226Your art is beautiful!
I love the detail; I find it difficult drawing in pen.
I'm always afraid I'd mess up @.@

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 12:24:27 PM

luckylace222I decreased my discomfort with the pen by drawing a whole bunch of comics with no rough draft and just pen- it really helps!

Attempt getting out a piece of paper and a pen and that is it! Challenge yourself and see what you get!
Thank-you for the compliments! Your incredible artwork is also so fun and beautiful to look at! BOYS BOYS BOYS 8D

DemonCat226 on August 22, 2012, 1:15:29 AM

DemonCat226I will try =D

My room is so messy, it's not funny @.@

Where would we be in the world without so many cute boys? *o*

Hybrid_SunshineSo coooool. Been a while since I looked at your work; almost forgot how much I liked 'em and how inspiring they are. o__o There be so many details!! Eyes dizzy by awesome! :D And there's Koji, photobombing your pics as usual (in a good way, of course!). :) The feathers falling away from her body almost look like leaves themselves.. So, I think you captured the messiness of a bird getting shot. Very nice; wish I had better criticism, but I don't. Keep it up! :P

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 12:18:23 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I have never heard of the term "photbombing!"" That sounds the word "cockblocking!" Hehrhehehr

Actually, I did blend the feathers with leaves- good eye! Or maybe I am just good at drawing leave-feathers. I did not want to make it difficult to find the leaves and feathers, so I just blended them. I was debating whether I should make the bottom as messy/detailed as the top, but I guess the semi-clearness on the bottom was needed. Does the "movement" from the bottom look weird on the picture? It looks weird to me!
