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.

ZeroMidnightDAT DETAIL. I love the fade of orange and red with dark blue at the bottom, plus the black detail everywhere is amazing. Love this~ *faaaves*
My favorite feature about her is her legs, idk but they look beautiful and so cool in their detail too.

luckylace222Thank-you so much for the comment! Really! The legs actually seem kind of abnormally small and stick-like to me- which I can use the excuse that she is partially supposed to look like an evil little angel bird, but yes. Thanks a lot! Does this look like it needs to be sharpened more? Something about it seems blurry.

ZeroMidnight on August 21, 2012, 7:48:56 AM

ZeroMidnightI think the legs are great, perfectly suiting to her as you explain anyway.
And I'm staring at it and am pretty sure it's plenty crisp in it's sharpness. :) Hope you win the contest btw! *highfives*

luckylace222You should join the contest too! You have time!

Creativity is worth is an unbelievable 50% for this one, so I might not win. P; It is always fun to know you have got other competition.

ZeroMidnightEh, I haven't got even the foggiest idea for this contest floating around in my head though. No entry this time. Sorry.

Wow, that's a lot of creativity points to work for!

RubiusAnother fantastic jealousy-inspiring piece. :P

luckylace222DO NOT BE JEALOUS; don't do it, it is too tedious.

I would be jealous of your art if you had some new ART TO POST! Post some new art!

RubiusI would except I don't know what to draw. Everyone is asking me for porn so that is what I'm drawing and I can't really think of anything good/funny/inspiring to draw. *shrug* I would like to do a comic, but all my attempts have come out less than spectacular. That and I would like to have one chapter done before I even think about posting. I hate when people start a comic and then 1/3 of the way through it they just stop and make you wait three months for another page. I want the entire thing done before I post even a single page.

luckylace222-Sometimes, it is extremely hard and takes much determination and planning to keep a comic going for a long time AND FINISH it. ;-; I have struggled with that myself. I have realized that it is better to give them something than nothing at all.

Do not be frustrated if it is not perfect. Comics never are. Concentrate more on getting your idea across than your actual pictures!

Rubius on August 21, 2012, 7:15:32 AM

Rubius on
RubiusI don't want it to be perfect, I want it to be good. I would like to just write them as a story, but then it loses that certain something you get from the visual part of comics. I'm just not sure what to do and that usually ends up with me doing nothing.

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 7:56:11 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Go ahead and do the story! That could be your "script" when you finally want to do a comic! Comics do not have to be rushed either!

Rubius on August 21, 2012, 7:57:35 AM

Rubius on
RubiusLOL, and maybe if I write it I can con someone else into drawing it. ^_^'

Nat_the_BluJay1992I'm scared of and attracted to her....

WHY ARE YOU SO frackIN' GOOD! I mean SERIOUSLY! My drawings of females are NOTHING compared to this! DAAAAYYYUUUUMMM! D:<

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 5:06:07 AM

luckylace222Thanks for the comment!

In fear and attraction will you find the right woman! The fact that everyone is liking the picture makes me feel less bad about the mistakes, but UGH!!!!

WH2007Impressive piece! It reminds me of works of H.R. Giger. now wonder you drew something like this at the dentist's XD

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 4:35:50 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222*looked up "H.R. Giger"* Good god, his work is morbid and inspiring! WHOAA- so he is a sculpture and painter?

I am just a girl, but look at this:

_ren_tao_fan_GOD DAMMIT. STOP BEING SO TALENTED AND AWESOME. It makes the rest of us feel bad! You're mean, you meanie!

Is Koji the orange cat?

luckylace222 on August 19, 2012, 4:06:38 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Yes, Koji is the orange cat! I really do need to advertise him somehow.

I should make an underwear picture ad with him.

GOD DANG IT, I KNOW RIGHT? I AM SICK OF BEING A GOODY GOODY TWO SHOES WITH MY PEN. From now on, I am going to draw with my toes.

Thank-you for the comment! Good luck on the contest by the way (yes, you must still join it- you are mostly the reason I joined)! *peer pressure*

_ren_tao_fan_ on August 20, 2012, 9:03:48 AM

_ren_tao_fan_ on
_ren_tao_fan_He is?! I found him, then! *feels superior*

Drawing with your toes is not enough. You must draw with your mouth.

luckylace222I saw a sneak peak of tofuproductionz's entry. THAT FOOL SHOWED ME HERE ENTRY. -Now I am going to revamp my entire entry to make it as happy and optimistic as hers. AND THEN I WILL WIN THIS COMPETITION- with my mouth!

_ren_tao_fan_ on August 20, 2012, 12:50:41 PM

_ren_tao_fan_Okay, you guys make the happy ones. I got the 'gory yet funny in its own sickening way' down pat.

angel88I see the cat in the right lower corner Lol this is awesome I could never draw like this with markers and ink!!!

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 11:41:03 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Dude, there is NO way you can say that bout yourself. You sometimes use the same traditional material as me (at least ink and coloring wise), and I have seen your painted works. Girly, you could totally make an abomination of scribbles like this.

Thanks for the contest! Good luck! *cries*

angel88 on August 20, 2012, 12:09:11 PM

angel88you think so!!! wene it coms to major detail like that i second guess myself!!!

My-MelodyPoor female anatomy representation you say? You sure can notice your drawings faster than I do with my blobs.

Lovely cross hatching lines, very delicate yet I bet it took 3 years to get it done (all that frustration with line after line after line makes me want to scribble everything if I'd cross hatch my drawings). For some reason, I feel that the background gives off too much attention and it drives away the actual focal point. Maybe it's just my eyes, but I can't really say for sure about others. And I have to agree with darthexodus, there is something kind of left out that makes me drawing a little incomplete... Ohhh dang it, my mind can't think why it is.

Overall, it's very good. Now I should get back onto sewing and poke myself a few more times.

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 11:39:51 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Yes, I was quite frustrated with this piece- and it did not even turn out all that great! I WILL WORK ON THAT. I think it is the fact that all those details are "nothing." They are just squirls that do not contribute much to the picture. The picture has no essence; it just has random patterns everywhere. The wings basically save it, but that does not change the fact that this picture is almost just a chick posing with a good deal of confusing pen blurbs around her.

Thank-you for the comment!

You sew? I want to see some of your crafts in your galleyr! CRAFTS NOW!

AHAH I am the queen of making incomplete pictures, and no one can figure out what that missing element is!

phantom223You get distracted by tumblr porn? OH YOU
*does the same thing*
I love all the feathers and stuff (at first I thought they were tentacles- blame my dirty mind XD )
they are so pretty just wanna stroke them all ;3;

I found Koji By the way >:D

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 4:11:46 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Even with tentacles, this picture would not be that sexual!...............much.

TUmblr is like a random universe with almost no restrictions. It is like...I could be searching up "Rainbows and Flowers" tumblr, and I could get random porn pictures here or there. IT IS SUCH AN UNPLEASANT/PLEASANT SURPRISE.

Nuh- uh! Where is he, huh?!

phantom223 on August 20, 2012, 7:23:19 AM

phantom223 on
phantom223XD very sexual in a good way

That is the same with google images! I serched up 'five dollar bill' AND it came up with porn DURING SCHOOL TIME DX

He is on the right-hand side, near the edge of the picture, Hanging down from one of the woman's feathers.
