So then. New art project. In drawing class, I had to try hard to draw realistically. But now, I'm in a painting class... Symbolism... Great. Anyways, I have to do a "symbolic self-portrait." What that means is I have to find images that represent me, and I have to be a stuffy tard about it too and be all official with elements of art and that crap. So, what represents me best? Aries. Look up anything about the Aries zodiac sign and it'll basically describe me perfectly.
One. Good description.
Another one. I want that postage stamp. D:
There are more, but you get the idea. Anyways, of course, I'm going to want to draw this thing realistically. But is that wrong if it's supposed to be symbolic? Goddamnit. And why did it have to be the sign associated with the masculine symbol? (for those that don't know: aries' ruling planet is mars. the male symbol is the spear/shield combo kinda O-> thingy except kinda tilted up) Sure, I'm the one all my RL friends lean on, but I'm not a freakin man. -.- If I were, I'd shoot myself in the face. No offense to the boys. But it's a nasty thought.
Oh well. I'm supposed to be looking up reference pictures, which I really should do...
