FAITH from MIRROR’S EDGE
I had no idea what to draw this weekend, so I opened up a folder on my PC with inspiring images and Faith from Mirrors Edge was the first thing I saw. I tried to draw her ages ago, as I really like the lighting in the photo, but it didn’t turn out too good. You can see that drawing in my one year since I started drawing blog post.
I made a school boy error, to be fair I didn’t know, but I drew this on the wrong side of the Bristol Board paper I use, and it resulted in a really strange sort of like fluffy paper texture. So that was a bit silly, but you live and learn, next time I know to make sure I’m using the right side :)
“We exist on the edge between the gloss and the reality: the mirror’s edge. We keep out of trouble, out of sight, and the cops don’t bother us. Runners see the city in a different way. We see the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, possibilities and routes of escape. The flow is what keeps us running, keeps us alive.“

“I’m a massive daydreamer. I’m constantly lost within my own fantasies and my own thoughts personally, and I think maybe that is sort of represented in what we do for a living, the fact that we make believe everything and we escape into these other characters for a living.” – Emily Browning
“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.”
“Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
