Clever Girl

If I’ve used this title before, after all, there are over 300 of these, a little under 699 away from Van Gogh’s prolific-ness, then I’ll call it something like “Clever Girl, the series.” “But what does it all mean, Basil?,” as Austin Powers says. It’s a continuation of the warrior theme from yesterday. Missed that one? I’m not offended, there will be more – like today! Anywho, this is based on the scene from the Movie Jurassic Park (II?), where the hunter is in the jungle, err, hunting the Velociraptor. However, the Velociraptor circles back, gets the drop on him, and he utters the classic line from the title before being ravaged.

I was also listening to Basil Poledouris’ soundtrack for Conan the Barbarian, so, there may be some influence of Valeria, and mixed with a bit of Gal Gadot, of Wonder Woman fame, whom I saw in a review earlier in the day. A side note, I don’t blame her for the bad scriptwriting of having Germans active in the Greek Isles during World War One instead of the Ottomans, that’s just Hollywood not opening a history book. But I digress….

So there were all the above elements, and maybe a bit of rum, yarr, the pirate life to take up my Sunday. The archery pose took the longest, because there are so many things we do with our bodies when doing silly stuff like this. I spent, like, an hour just on the hands. Most of your archery professionals will be, like, “Rob, it’s not right,” but its accurate according to my high-school gym class, from what I can remember…. it’s been a minute.

Anyway, hope you enjoy. Love it? Hate it? Leave a comment. Or don’t. I’m an existential nihilist, anyway.

But wait, there’s more! Since you bothered to look at this website, I’m going to give you the first render I did, before changing the lighting. Art is about lighting, in my opinion.

This is really for posterity. If I become famous after I die (artist….) I don’t want people saying this was is a fake. It was just earlier in the evening.

No AI ever. If you haven’t picked up what I’m putting down. AI is a discipline ender. I’ve actually started transitioning back to acrylic art. I’m sad, because digital art is awesome, but now, everyone can do it, so it’s two feet planted firmly in the grave. P.s., I think it’s awesome everyone can do art now, but, those that depend on art for a livelihood are in a pretty bleak time.
