It’s been too long since Seraphim did a painting. She needs to feel passionate about what she paints, and can’t really just make herself paint unless she really loves her subject. She recently watched ‘Alita: Battle Angel’, and loved it to bits, as she knew she would. She now has several paintings planned, but has started with this one. The full title will be The Rookie: “How you doin?”… Seraphim loved the scene where Alita, the rookie, rolls up to the start-line for the trials, and is her usual happy, cute self, being friendly to the hardened killers all around her, not realising they are all there for only one reason… to kill her! Of course, as soon as she is warned about this, we see her face change from happy teenaged android, to totally confident, 300-year-old killing machine!
This may look pretty amateur at this stage, it’s only an hours work… give it a few more hours, Seraphim knows, from experience, it will look fabulous.
