Well, Hello there faithful readers.
Sorry that I haven't been that great at posting often...
Life just tends to get busy and run away with me.
Yesterday, I decided to do some art. I am not the best artist in the world; I'm more of an Arts and Crafts sorta girl. I'm great at making cool things, but I SUCK at drawing. However, since being at university, I have become a shameless One Tree Hill addict. One of the female protagonists in the show, Peyton Sawyer, does art. She uses her art as an outlet for her inner teenage-angst and other emotions, and the writers also use her art in the plot of the show. Her style is very dark... And yet, beautiful at the same time. I love it. In season one, Peyton's art is submitted to a local magazine by her friend Lucas and she is offered a job to draw and write a somewhat comic strip. From there, her artwork just evolved.
So, my point?
Because I love Peyton's art so much, I decided to try my own hand at it.
Most of the messages of Peyton's art are very sad and very seldom have themes of hope and happiness. So, I decided to take one of her pieces, and put my own, more encouraging spin on it.
This is her original sketch.
I got it from Google Images: http://bluepinch.exteen.com/images/sketch_sadpeyton.jpg
And this is my interpretation.
I tried my best to make it look like me. :P
I used Picnik to put my two sketches together, and used the HDR-ish effect.
I love OTH and I have learned alot of things about life and myself through watching and it has actually added to my faith [believe it or not]. I have something they don't... God. I always wonder if things would be different in their story if they had God in their lives... Always gives me something extra to think about.
[Stop Laughing... Please.]
I would love to hear what you have to say, so feel free to comment.
