(art) and the journey is home (cobb/arthur)  
I'm no Edo poetry buff, but came across this quote by Matsuo Basho and felt that it really fit Cobb and Arthur (well, Arthur more than Cobb):

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.

PREVIEW











zombie_armor wrote a fill,So Precious Is Your Normality, to this prompt that was inspired by 'The Good Wife' A/C chibi comic so you must go read it because it is the cutest thing ever asdf;lkj

And in other news, the sequel to Autonomic (A/C) will be posted within the next few days! Really looking forward to sharing it :D

I want to add fandom friends and have no other way to advertise this fact so I am advertising here. u_u Feel free to add me @radishphase and we will tweet and chirp and be all web 2.0-y and joyous and merry together

Ohhhhhhhhhh, so gorgeous. So gorgeous. I just love your art to little pieces. :)

thank you <3 though I do have to admit, my fixation with prettiness sometimes trumps other more important things... like anatomy. should have spent the time fixing cobb's hands instead of fiddling with the coloring for an hour D:

Wow this is really beautiful! Did you use watercolors? I love the colors of the drawing, it's giving a very peacefull atmosphere...
radishfaceradishface on September 24th, 2010 10:38 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I was going for a nostalgic and peaceful look, inspired by the quote to do something more like a Japanese woodcut print; it's Arthur's precision combined with Cobb's emotion (and since he's sleeping, it's not as harsh) Everything is done in photoshop—first I do the line sketch, then ink it with a very thin pencil brush, then do the coloring as normal, and then filter a bajillion times, color, and re-color until I get the effect I want. The method changes every time but other than some pre-drawing/planning on real paper, it's all digital.

sorry for all the rambly and overthinky D:

GORGEOUS AS ALWAYS DEAR :D

What medium do you use in your art?
radishfaceradishface on September 24th, 2010 04:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! It's all digital, done in photoshop! In terms of time spent, this one is probably 40% line drawing, 20% texturing, and 20% raw color and 20% filtering. But it changes for each drawing depending on my ~mood~ and the subject-- I always try to do something a little bit new each time XD
Jenstrokeof_genie on September 24th, 2010 12:18 am (UTC)
Oh, lovely! I love the colors you chose for this, as I always seem to! They fit the mood perfectly.

(adding you on twitter, I'm @zerpes!)
radishfaceradishface on September 24th, 2010 04:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very partial to an old-timey, gritty-round-the-edges look, I'm glad you like it too :D

Thank you! I was looking through quotes for inspiration for my next round of pictures and just came across this one and felt it like a punch to the gut. I'm far from home right now and have always been a bit of a nomad, so I agree whole-heartedly.

♥ Just—mwuah!

Is it weird that I just pictured one of these:



doing an Italian "delicious!" kiss? XD
