Strawberry Fields Forever by TrollGirl Strawberry Fields Forever by TrollGirl
For my 100 songs challenge - [link]

Yeah, it's a small nekkid John Lennon, drawn similarly to how he used to depict himself, sitting on tree roots and fishing for stars.
While doing this one, i also discovered the fascinating alcohol on watercolor technique.

Let me take you down cause i'm going to strawberry fields.

Well, it's funny in a creepy kind of way. I've always thought that Lennon's round sunglasses look cute. And his expression is somehow really miserable, like he'd be a little lost and cold in his natural attire, wishing for something good on his way... :D A great picture.

How do you make a puzzle? You mean, it is like combining 1000 pictures into one that will picture something else?!

Its just the sort of escapism i dont like. Drunk people end up hurting either themselves or their surroundings/loved ones. What's is it good for...

yeah thats true...do you dont do anything like that? maybe thats why your art is so pure...

I dont do alcohol, drugs, sex with strangers..i don't even do cutting any more, tho of that i approve. But my art isnt pure i think, just commercialized.

Wow, even you found a use for alcohol.

Anyway, what i really like about this painting is Lennon's scary faceless face.

Although the original caricature is by Lenon, I really like it when you mix your styles like that. The synergy is great
