Sorcerer's Apprentice by VincentValentineGirl
Sorcerer's Apprentice
Wow, it's been a while since I've worked on a digital piece.
This character might be familiar to you! This is Irin! 8D
I finally created a story for him and a couple of other characters to go to! (Roan and David, whom I haven't introduced yet)
He and his sister are wizards-in-training (hence the title).
This took last night and most of this morning to finish, which is actually pretty fast for me. I'm pretty happy with it, minus a couple of details that are going to drive me nuts later. First time free-handing on the tablet, so I really am proud of it.
Was seriously playing around with light in this one.

EDIT: Hm....I think I funked up the hands...oh well.

I am an artist.

If you want to assume that I’m a ‘visionary,’ I guess you wouldn’t be too far off.

You probably wouldn’t recognize me, if you saw me. I’ve never been very noticeable.

I’ve never won any awards or prizes for my work, never even made Best in Show, even if it’s my best work. I’ve never understood why, but I always just told myself, “next time. Next time, I’ll make it.”

Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s frustrating, especially when you’ve put so much time and effort into a piece that you’re sure will catch the judge’s eye.

Yet there’s always someone to one-up you.

I have goals. Respectable ones, if I say so myself. I want to be an art teacher. God knows that traditional art is starting to fade. I want to make an impact on people. To help them find their own voice and see that they can make something beautiful out of a world that growing more and more disgusting every day.

I want to own a studio gallery. I want to teach people in a place I’m free to be me, and to sell not just my artwork, but other people’s artwork as well.

I don’t have very many friends. Plenty of acquaintances, though. It’s easy to smile and talk to someone for a short amount of time every day, but it’s hard to get close to another person when you’re so guarded. Being hurt so often as a child makes you wary of others.

I like watching people—in fact, my favorite subject to paint and draw is the human figure. It’s so fascinating, how different people are, how much they can change, how much they can express with a few gestures and facial expressions. It’s beautiful and at the same time, it can be so disturbing.

Sometimes I wonder if I should even bother trying anymore. What’s the point? If no one has noticed by now, then who ever will? I could try and try and try some more, but will it ever be worth it in the end?

It’s like talking to someone, when you think about it. Art, I mean. You’re not saying something verbally, with words. You’re speaking through paint or graphite or charcoal or whatever medium you like. You’re expressing yourself and you’re making a statement. I don’t think I’ve really found my voice yet. Not yet. I’ve whispered and nudged, but I haven’t fully spoken out yet.

What’s the statement I’m truly wanting to make?

I’d like to make a point to help people. But how do I do that?

I’d like to change the world for better. But what’s one more voice to the growing mass of crying martyrs?

I read stories and watch the news, hearing stories about so many things going wrong in society. Why can’t they ever highlight the right?

If I can make a point in showing people hope and goodness, could that make a difference?

Does it even matter anymore?

I am an artist, a visionary and a human being.

And I have more questions for the world that has no answers.
I Am An Artist
Thoughts I've had in my mind for a while now. I decided to put them on paper(question mark that) and see if anyone will even notice enough to bother reading.

Dutch 7-Layer (2nd Dead Layer) - Self-Portrait by VincentValentineGirl
Dutch 7-Layer (2nd Dead Layer) - Self-Portrait
Layer 5 of the 7-layer project, so this isn't the finished product, but I just loved how the black-and white came out. Crappy photo, but nothing I can do about that. Another project from my Painting III class.

Yes, that's my beautiful mug....I don't smile for pictures. Sorry.

Lit by VincentValentineGirl
Lit
Photorealism project for my Painting III class. The theme was 'Document.'

Took two weeks of hard work to finish, but....I'm happy with it ^_^

“Of all times to have to deal with a dark spirit, why now?” (Y/n) scowled. The spirit—a malevolent asshole who had killed himself after killing his wife and young child—had latched onto her close to three days ago. Three days that she hadn’t heard or felt Jushiro around.

She and the Soul Reaper had become quite good friends over the past three months. He would visit her when he had the chance to escape, using the excuse of studying her spirit energy to get clearance. He usually visited three to four times a week, but she hadn’t seen him for the past three days, which made her worry about if his illness had started to bother him again. He had told her about it in more detail later on and it sounded very similar to the human illness tuberculosis.

“Go away, damn it!” (Y/n) hissed to the spirit. She heard him snicker and move closer, making her groan as she turned down the path into the park. “Of course. I have to deal with a stubborn jackass…go figure…”

She stopped long enough to yank off her flats and continued walking through the park.

Lately, it seemed her abilities were getting stronger. She was starting to get glimpses of the spirits haunting her and she could faintly make out a haze where Jushiro was when he visited. It both worried her and amazed her how much they’ve grown. (Y/n) paused on the path for a moment, listening around her.

It had grown quiet. Too quiet. (Y/n) wasn’t going to stick around long enough to find out. She started moving again, walking quickly to get through the park and to get home. She didn’t want to deal with a Hollow.

Quickly, quickly, the monster is sickly~

That asshole of a spirit was enjoying this, singing in her ear. She waved her hand in that direction angrily, feeling it move through thick air where the spirit was.

“Enough of that! Shut up before you get us both in trouble!”

Stupid girl, don’t you know? That demon is already following you….it has for the past five minutes…

That whisper in her ear made a chill go down her spine and nearly made her stop in her tracks. She knew better though. She needed to keep moving. ‘Jushiro….I really need you right now…’ she thought, fighting the fear that threatened to climb through her. She bit her lip to keep it from trembling. Maybe if she didn’t acknowledge it, it would leave her alone….

Yeah, right. She knew better than that. Now that she knew it was there, she could focus on its presence. God, what a vile feeling. Cold and evil….and so hungry. She felt her throat tightening in fear. She was almost through the park. Jushiro said Hollows tend to prefer one central area, but they’ve been known to move throughout a city. She hoped this one stayed in the park.

‘Where are you running to….human?’ Ah, she was wondering when it would start talking to her. ‘You don’t have anywhere to run to. You have no one waiting. Why are you running? I could end the hurt….end the pain….just let me EAT YOU!

Ignore it, (Y/n), ignore it! Don’t listen to it! Keep walking. The exit was so close. She could probably make it quicker if she ran. Her heartbeat was picking up. It could smell her nervousness. It knew she knew it was there.

So sweet, so good….you’ll make a delectable treat…

God damn it all!’ (Y/n) didn’t wait any longer. She ran for the exit.

RunrunrunrunrunrunRUN!!

Oh…

There’s a dark form there….

(Y/n) clenched her eyes shut…

And heard the sound of screams.
