Fanart for my web cartoon Toilet Genie! 8D
This boy painting gets to be called ‘Green Relax’ because that was the bs file name I had for it, but actually it’s fitting enough. The initial sketch is by Cinna, and then I drew on top of it a lot because I liked her sketch. And then I decided to paint it I guess!
Some close ups are on my tumblr.
If you follow my work much you’re probably aware that I HATE THE COLOR GREEN WITH A BURNING PASSION. This is maybe the first truly green thing I think I’ve painted in a long time? Like it’s hard to describe. There are objects that happen to be green. Then there are also spiritually green places and things. They’re very different in how they get colored. Green objects get turned other colors because I hate them. Spiritually green places just never get painted. Green can come in a bunch of spirits, like sickly green, or active alive green.
Does this even make sense what I’m writing?
There was a feeling I wanted for this painting, I THINK it might actually have happened, and that color story I was going for was the balance or tranquility of being alive. Not so much the activity of living or growing, but peace in the stillness of breathing.
All of this only matters because I can never successfully paint any green emotion, except for this one single time.
It’s important because sexuality is really a hard topic for a lot of people (me too) and I wanted to apply the tranquility of being alive to it.
Sorry I wrote so much. ><
This is the cover for the sketchbook Cinna and I have done together!! It can be preordered on both of our etsy shops! As I write this there are 8 preorders, so just two more preorders and we’ll be giving away a second sketch to a random order. c: Please consider supporting our work!
So I hope we get two more preorders. 10 was my goal to reach. ^^
