This started out as a completely random sketch and turned into this very Klimt-esque piece. Been very influenced by J.C. Leyendecker’s style lately, especially his way of painting hair, and also been studying Gil Elvgren’s painting style. Had to keep going back and forth between this and school assignments, glad I could finish it relatively fast!
Process here and prints will soon be available.
"I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men."

Who the hell is Bucky?
A year ago I tried to animate. This morning I opened it in Photoshop thinking ‘this is going to be great’ and I had a Ben Wyatt moment… like…”oh my god…that was it [facepalm]”
“My faith is my armour, my cause is my shield.”

I became so engrossed in the idea of Natasha being the Winter Soldier I COULDN’T HELP IT

→ Members Of Congress urge Olympic committee to add LGBT protections
In light of the months-long debate over Russia’s treatment of LGBT people before and during the Winter Olympics, members of Congress have formally called on the International Olympic Committee to write LGBT protections into the Olympic Charter.
The letter to the IOC asks that the committee alter Principle 6 to specifically prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Led by members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee of both parties, Democratic Rep. David Cicilline and Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Tuesday’s letter is a sign that, while the issue has not been front and center since the closing ceremony in Sochi, it remains on the radar of some.
The letter is signed by four of the out LGBT members of Congress, including Cicilline and Reps. Michael Michaud, Mark Takano, and Mark Pocan.
“At your meeting in Monaco this December, the IOC will have a chance to further its commitment to the ideals of human rights and the fellowship of sport,” the letter states. “While we understand that politics are not a component of the Olympic Games, we believe amending Principle 6 to further uphold the ideals of non-discrimination will illustrate how the Olympic Games achieve their fundamental principle of ‘plac[ing] sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind …”
Whaddayaknow! I love when elected officials speak up about what’s right instead of forgetting about important issues because they no longer seem timely.
