Pixelated Portrait (re-edit) by Gliophorus
Pixelated Portrait (re-edit)

Culture Clash Series // 2015

By covering a woman’s true identity behind an idealised version of her appearance while painting her, the (typically male) artists throughout art history unwittingly painted their own fantasies and societal beauty standards of the ‘perfect’ woman onto their subjects. Effectively masking their true identity.

2015 Improvement Meme

This just keeps getting longer every time! It's really nice to be able to look back at your past work and see the subtle changes and new skills you've gained since. Helps to keep me motivated about my art when it becomes challenging.

My last work of art from 2015!!!

Drawn as a part of my yearly improvement assessment (which you can find here:…

And heavily inspired by my newfound love of Art Nouveau and the stunning Violet Chachki from Rupaul's Drag Race (whose taste in vintage fashion is just GAHHHHHH). I'm really excited to finish off this sketch and get it coloured *new years resolutions* 

Thank you so much to my new followers gained in 2015, and a huge thank you to the ones who've stayed with me from the beginning! I love you guys and I hope you've all had a great year and look forward to experiencing an even better one in 2016! ~ :heart:

Every year I've redrawn an old character to track my improvement. This year was heavily inspired by Art Nouveau and Violet Chachki from Rupauls Drag Race (her style is just gahhhhhhhh) :heart:

tbh all I seem to have done is draw less and less clothing each time lol I tried 

P.S if you want to see a bigger version, just hit 'download' and it gets freaking MASSIVE.

Hey guys!

I've recently finished my NCEA art boards for 2015. I'm really excited to show you all the work that I've been slaving over for MONTHS! It truly has been one of the hardest and most rewarding experiences of my life. 

I'll be posting bits of bobs of the series throughout the next upcoming weeks. If you'd like to see it all in one place, you can check out my new facebook page:…
