I tried to mimic Van Gogh’s paint strokes, and then I quit, so I just did something that was more painterly, lol. Hope it works. Happy Saturday, everyone.

That is very creepy... poor guy.
alston123
Yeah. I never liked that people dismissed him based on his mental health. The man lived a hard life, and he was extremely unhappy. He really only loved painting and his brother. I was so happy that I was able to create an in universe explanation for his troubled psyche. He was an amazing artist, and he deserves to be respected.

Have you seen the Van Gogh episode of Dr Who? It had a similar theme, except with Daleks.

That's actually my favorite episode of Doc Who. When I want to introduce people to the show, I make them cry with that episode. I love what they did with him. He was a unique soul, and he saw the world like no one else before him nor after him.

Van Gogh was definitely a great artist, but it's also very understandable that Naomi's parents don't want her to mentally end up in "cutting off one's own ear" territory...
alston123
Yeah, let's make sure Naomi is in a good mental state and stays away from the self inflicted earsectomes. We wouldn't want that.

That portrait of Van Gough is AWESOME, ALston!!!

Thanks, Serps! I wasn't so sure about it myself, but you make me feel better about it. 😄

Don't be unsure! When I saw the thumbnail of it on some other site I assumed it was like...copy and pasted off the internet LOL! So reading that you rendered this by hand...I'm super impressed!
alston123
Awwww. Thanks for that, Serpy! I really appreciate the kind words!

I love when people take real events and put a twist on it in their own universe--this is a great example of that! Even though it is quite sad :(
alston123
Thank you! I totally agree. And yes, very sad.
