Watercolor Painting: In Which I Become a Vaporeon
I am the kind of person person who looks at life and sees a series of video game status bars. Mulling it over and assessing my personal strengths and weaknesses, in terms of Pokemon stats, I decided I have high HP: I can endure a lot before I crumble, no matter how you put it; I have low physical stats: I’m not strong and get hurt easily; I have high special: lots of willpower, strong emotions, and a thick skin; and low speed: physical and otherwise (I also procrastinate). I then decided I needed to figure out what Pokemon would best match that and all signs pointed to Vaporeon.
I thought it’d make an interesting picture. Not necessarily to turn myself into a gijinka or anything, but something a bit more spiritual, where I become the Pokemon. Is it my spirit Pokemon now? I don’t know. I like Vaporeon a lot, not as much as some other Pokemon, or even Eeveelutions (i.e. Umbreon). I don’t even like water that much in real life (other than maybe drinking it nonstop). But I have always wanted to be a siren, a mermaid or something: a creature of beauty and mystery that seduces men and lures them into danger. (In a lot of ways I’m already there? Yikes.)
I did not want it to be erotic, but how else would I become water without being in water? Naked? Clothes would get messy, though that’s another idea entirely. I kind of wanted to share some similar features with a Vaporeon, but not too much. Melting into the water aside, I gave myself its tail and eyes (because I love Vaporeon’s eyes, they are so… eerie.)
I also can’t really paint straight lines so that warm background looks a little iffy.
Overall, I’m happy with this piece. It took several days/nights of small brushstrokes and thought processes until it finally reached completion.
tl;dr: Ana used Aqua Ring/Acid Armor. I’m becoming stronger.
