Madonna and child WIP by StressedJenny Madonna and child WIP by StressedJenny
I'll keep updating this until its finished. This is how far I got today at lunch.

Session2: Added faces. Too many slenderman comments got old too quickly XD. This is strange to be painting like this. I guess it because of the subject, I'm trying to emulate Raphael or Da Vinci...God, imagine if they had photoshop! XD I'm as sick as a dog right now so this is keeping me amused. Bleh...

Yeah- they did get old fast
o vo;
But to be honest, it doesn't even look like Slenderman. Walk in a mall and look at mannequins, they look more like Slenderman.

But, these are beautiful~

Another friend of mine has a photo of herself at age 12 with her new born baby sister, and it's very reminiscent of the classic Madonna With Child. :) It's a beautiful piece. Nothing is more beautiful and sacred than the bond between a mother and a child; it's both primal, and profoundly evolved; the ability to love and adore and protect and feel the need to provide for something which needs it, and can't obtain it without the mother. And to do so with a sense of unquestionable obligation. And yes, even when a mother is unable to provide for her child, and needs to give them to someone who can, this is still a heartbreaking process for the mother. I should know; my girlfriend (not the previously mentioned friend) was abused and taken advantage of by a horrible man before she dated me. She wound up pregnant, and gave birth to a little girl. The little girl herself barely survived her own very premature birth. And my girlfriend tried soooo hard to care for her. But the situation she was in was just far too trying. And she was alone in all of it; an abusive and dangerous ex, an alcoholic father, a deceased mother, and nobody else to help her. She has just recently made the very very difficult decision to surrender her now 5-year-old daughter to social services, so that she can be adopted by someone who can give her a safer life.

But my girlfriend didn't do this easily; she's shattered inside, right now. Barely holding together. She still loves her daughter. She wants nothing more than to hold her little girl, and protect her. But she just can't give her what she needs in life, and is unable to protect her completely from the largest threats she herself faces.

I'm trying to just be there for my girlfriend. I mean, heck, if she ever manages to stabilize her life and get her daughter back, her daughter could potentially someday become my step-daughter. And that even fills me with a sense of "fatherhood", to some degree. For now, though, I just try to be there for the most maternally-strongest women I know. And that's what makes her beautiful to me. :)

I like how they look without faces, it is kind of like it is a portrait from a society that thinks if you paint a person's face, it steals their soul or something... O.O WRITING INSPIRATION! Jenny, you are now my Muse ._.

I think the Slender baby is scarier than Slender man himself... They should really make that a game: SLENDERCHILD or something, lol.

You can just barely see the start of details on the face, and the facial outline is well defined xD.
But it still looks amazing....

I was reading a book about the paintings of Rafael, and he did a lot of these "Madonna and Child" paintings.

I can't wait to see how you finish yours :)
