Every Hour Has Come to This

I finished an artwork for my love! This is a drawing of us from one of the first photos we took together. I put a lot of love and effort into this drawing! I worked much harder than I ever have before and made it much more detailed than I usually would, I really pushed myself. Art has always been a personal, emotional thing for me but I put so much more meaning into this than I ever have before. It resulted in a very special piece and luckily he was happy with it as well. ♥

I used graphite pencils and white acrylic paint on 9x12 mixed media paper.
Referenced from a photo of my boyfriend Justin and I.

I listened to Christina Perri ft Steve Kazee - A Thousand Years Pt.2 on repeat while drawing this. (I prefer Part 2 myself.)

" Time stands still. Beauty in all she is. I will be brave; I will not let anything take away what's standing in front of me. Every breath, every hour has come to this. "

Faithfully


Here is the full fashion and makeup I did for my SpookyEyes review! :) I wanted to do something a bit more elaborate, fantasy, but not full-blown costume. Really I just wanted to play around a bit. haha I like how everything turned out. 



For my hair, I tried another updo. I usually don't care for updos but I love how this one turned out! I got inspiration for it from this photo


Then there's the makeup, which of course did not photograph well. Yay for washed out photos. :p The makeup was lots of purples, sparkly purple on the contour, sparkly liner for swirls and hearts, bold falsies, rhinestones for added bling, and bold green contacts! I kind of wish I had gone all out instead of toning it down some but it was fun nonetheless!







So yeah, it was a fun look. Could have gone all out and made it much bolder but it was fun for just goofing off and playing around. :) I really need to do more fantasy/costume looks!
