Paintober, Day 18 – Chosen

I began watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer this summer, something I’d been meaning to do for years. If I’m honest, I suppose I wondered if a weekly monster show on basic cable could really be more captivating than cheesy, having not learned my lesson from The Walking Dead: anything works if done well enough.

I’m halfway through Season 5 now, and I love it. The series is charming, funny, poignant, has great character development…everything you’d want.

Each corner of the card was assigned a color–forest green, crimson, umber, and viridian–and then spritzed with a very liberal amount of water. After adding titanium white, I used a palette knife to create vampiristic tooth and bite marks.
