What's that you say? You think Poor Unfortunate Souls is a weird song to take a title from? Sure! I'm terrible at titles. lol
A bit ago I sketched Llaalruse as the High Priestess in a Tarot deck, and I wanted to finish it...but it seemed kind of silly to do a Tarot card with no accompanying pieces, so I just made it into a piece about the choices in Lal's life.
Particularly later in her life, she gets kind of conflicted about being a part of the Thieves Guild along with House Hlaalu--it's not that she's big into politics, she just happens to have Real Feelings for Crassius Curio while also thinking of the Guild as her family. I guess that's where the title comes in? She can't really switch completely to either side without losing something, so...she just kind of...tries really hard to straddle the line between the two.
There's a lot more to it--like why she's dressed the way she is, what the objects mean, etc, but I figure I won't bother explaining unless someone is actually interested. Y'know. Just to keep from being obnoxious.
Anyway. A Photoshop painting! I've been struggling with MyPaint lately, so I wanted to try going back to PS for a while. Honestly, this turned out so well that I think I might be going in...a good direction? I always think that! Who knows. Whatever works. Anyway, I spent a lot of time doing detail work on this, so I'm particularly happy with the result.
(I must have been in a Terezi mood when I worked on this. I picked teal and red for the colors, I was wearing teal and red that day...hmm.)
