Van Gogh Changeling by MindEdge Van Gogh Changeling by MindEdge
I recently took a beginners painting class, and i wanted to work on something fun and experimental.
This is a character from one of my stories on fimfiction (www.fimfiction.net/story/13537…. The characters name is Old One-Eye, an old and grizzled changeling who acts as his tribes teacher and story teller. The left eye is supposed to look dim and clouded over, but i don't think i pulled it off very well. The overall aesthetic is based off of Van Gogh's self portraits, a technique not easily replicated. The background is especially messy, lacking the smooth swirls found in Van goths paintings.

This is an oil painting, done on a small piece of canvas bird that i totally don't remember the dimensions of.

Thanks for giving my painting a look! This thing took a long time to complete, as I worked on it bit-by-bit during my afternoons in college. But if i were to do it again with the knowledge I gained while doing it I would say it would take about 4-5 hours.
