midweek superhero dedication~
taguiar, Poison Ivy, watercolour and photoshop, 2010.
you probably don’t know this about me, but i do love comic book heroes (not to mention villains). i harbour a not-so-secret desire to some day publish a comic of my own but, you know, time, time…
i hope you are all having as lovely a mid-week as i (cozy heater, mary poppins, and a commission-in-progress). if only my kitten were here everything would be perfect!

was busy with this:

his name is raskolnikov, after dostoyevsky’s crime and punishment anti-hero and he’s all (well, half) mine. i love him to bits. (how could you not?)
also. my image program cannot reduce photographs to save its life (or, you know, chunk of harddrive). i don’t suppose anyone could recommend some sort of basic shareware/free image softwear that would reduce photos without making them look pixillated?
