I made my own Procreate brush! I think it's already making an improvement. What do you think?
mlm: the default brushes.
wlw: the new brush.
An update on the anhedonia thing. I did manage to just keep doing the thing. I'm quite pleased that I didn't give up on making art today, since it's a big part of my recovery/management. I know it's a matter of waiting out the aftershocks of the panic attack.
That can sometimes take a week, but I have meds I can take. Today's sketches: a figure study, and a style study.
More Tissot paintings, and experimenting w/ CWs
Another one from Ayn Karim (you can see why I'm biased toward these in particular :D ). This time it's The Visitation.
A Thread about threads, along w/ James Tissot paintings of Palestinian models.
My favourite is first. This is a painting of the Virgin Mary in the traditional clothes of my family's village!
They were from Ayn Karim which is noteworthy as the birthplace of John the Baptist, and the location of the Magnificat.
If you want more queerplatonic SFF inspired by Palestinian folklore, I have a story out in the wonderful collection Xenocultivars: Stories of Queer Growth.
'Muneera and the Moon' is my sapphic, asexual love story inspired by Palestinian folklore, particularly folk religion and djinn!
I've also been illustrating it myself! :D
I tell Palestinian folktales.
