lipstick by b33lz3bub lipstick by b33lz3bub
rasterized_chapter045
::-Lipstick.

yes i consider this a painting. Interesting story to it too. I had invited *sinnamongirl over to watch the NIN - All that could have been DVD and the beautifull mix of video and sound inspired me to run to my room, pull out the biggest canvas i could find (god knows why i keep them. i fucking sketch in an A6 book), and grabbed an old box of lipstick sticks that Bex had given me not long beforehand. I spent a good 45-60 minutes moving with the music like a retard throwing myself into the thing, painting with my fingers and using my arm as the brush, it was a very revitalising activity. i think that may be one of the reasons behind my sudden lack in sketch work. i think i want to do more of this instead. it was an amazing experience at any rate. im sure i could do better if i tried again too. i really need to go and purchase more cheap cosmetics and canvas. you can thank *sinnamongirl for the photo of the work, too. she did a great job.

anyway yeah. so there it is. demon wrapt in pain, metal screwing his spine and back, blood lapping at the legs and arms, everything pouring out his mouth and chest. something no wall should be without. i really need to paint more. .... with lipstick anyway.

I had made the comment on one of your most recent works, that it was great, just not my fave, and that got me thinking, what IS my favorite thing he's posted, anyway? I looked around the gallery for a bit, and I'm pretty sure of this one. I loved it back when you posted it, first. Liked it enough to remember specifically that you posted this, that day. Heh. Been almost a YEAR? Bleep.

That figures, though. I feel you on most of your posts, man. My life's beyond the weird right now. I went from spoiled, ignorant moron, to a kid with one of two divorced parents, half a country away, with (somehow) an even more pathetic school system, few years of torment, I come one month away from a bathtub suicide, my dad talked me out of it, few years later my mom is just short of psychotic, I moved back with dad, but now this worthless little wide spot in the road is collapsing in upon itself, leaving me with nothing to boost my fluctuating mood, and no place to draw and write but this awful apartment built by blind men with time constraints and a 5$ budget.

Sigh. And just to make things better, I had ME some girlfriend trouble, too. Thing is, everything that ended that was entirely my own, complete, stupidity. I hate Spider-Man 2. Know why? That crap doesn't work. When you have someone who cares deeply for you, breaking it off so you won't hurt them some time in the near future, hurts them ten times as bad. I didn't figure that out until a few months later, when I realized I may have ruined someone else's life. Long, stupid-story short, I figured I was going to kill myself, so rather than drag her into it, I disappeared when she went on a short family vacation. Well, dad changed my mind. So... it just kills me. Just completely butchers me. And even if I had, I know she could have helped. Ironically, that realization put me in a second depression, and I haven't stopped fighting for happiness every day since. Years ago. Also in bad health, too. My brain chemicals are messed up and I'm looking at heart trouble down the road.

Gah. Rant, rant, rant. I love this piece you did. I agree, it'd be cool to see more lipstick art. Yours, at least. It's beautiful and stirs up a ton of emotions in me. Great job, man. Fantastic job. Chow.

that i compelled you to open up like that and talk about your personal past through my art means a lot, man. i'm glad i'm able to reach out effectively and in the right manner with what i do. thank's for letting me know that this stuff means somethin to ya, my expressive work is all ive really got so that it's working at all means a fuckload whenever i hear it. masochism is a terrible, terrible thing haha

Oh how I love working with my hands; fuck brushes.

I like very much this paint! wicht type of colour utilize for paint your draws? anylines, watercolour, gouache,....?

I like the volume of the face (it's fantastic! O_O), your outline is very simply, but I like very much because it's very expressive. I wish that one day I will know paint for this way...

(my english is very bad, I'm sorry, I wish that you undersand me XDDDD)

one kiss! bye!

You know, lipstick doesn't look this good on most people's faces 0_o It's so... flowy... I like how it's whispy in places and in others it hasn't even been worked in. Now the question is, how do you set lipstick? :s Charcoal you can spray with hairspray, but lipstick >.> hmmm.
Next step: Life sized Robot/Demon? :D

actually in parts it looks like oils to me after its done ._. which is fucking cool. and yeah i dunno i just didnt touch it. sorta was like.. dont touch this or ill fuck you in the neck kinda thing to people. yeah i gotta do a life sized robot/demon. god do i have to.

yeah, lipstick definitely looks good on canvas... If you think about it I guess lipstick would work about the same way as an oil pastel, they probably even share ingredients. And yeah, I wouldn't let anyone touch that... I'd stick it high up on a wall so everyone could see it, but not touch it (I think neckfucking might be a little awkward for me), right next to my giant robot demon named mary :paranoid:
