Getting ReadysteemCreated with Sketch.

in drawing •  20 days ago

‪I always find it fascinating how hectic and busy everyone is when they’re getting ready to perform for a show. Wardrobes and items seem to malfunction conspiratorially at the last minute, which causes additional emotional distresses for everyone involved, but miraculously for most performances, everything seems to be fine when the curtain is opened.‬

‪Those very bright lights that they installed at the makeup table, I heard they are set up that way to simulate how the actors will look like once they’re on stage. I find them mesmerising, the mirror, the shiny lamps, and of course due to the light’s intensity, the rest of the room becomes darker by contrast. I wonder how it feels like for a performer when they stare at their own faces in such scrutiny day in, day out.‬

Thank you.

Simulating how you look on stage is probably a good use for it XD Practically it helps to have bright even lighting when applying stage makeup (or any kind of makeup I guess).

Wardrobe malfunctions are the worst! That's why there's spare hair clips and emergency sewing kits XD

Sepia toning makes it look so oldschool :D


Hehehe you’re probably a pro at fixing things at the last moments since you have that bendy performer in your family amongst the other mischief makers? XD

Thanks fyn :D.

Firstly, the sketch is lovely and oozes distilled innocence and femininity. Really nice line work.
Secondly, as a performer, I can completely relate to the pressures and vulnerabilities that performing initiates, and I can say with all honesty that that sensation is what makes or breaks your outcome.
I think it's good to do things that simultaneously excite and terrify you.
It makes life interesting ☺


Aaah what a wonderful comment. I love it when people share me their life experiences and feelings. Being on stage, maybe that’s how being alive feels like.

Thank you :).

Elegant! And yeah, it does seem like for big project or show, every tiny thing that can go wrong will go wrong at the last minute like if it is a iron out phase. XD But at least, like you said, the actual event majority of the time performs very well.

Yep! I think maybe it’s like having everything condensed into a few hours, like in a movie? :D

I’m glad to see you, my furry blue friend, as always :).

I never really understood why their mirrors were like that, Now I know, I enjoy these sepia toned paintings.


I feel really great too when people tell me about something I don’t know, the problem is I usually forget about them again soon enough. Well at least, I can feel the amazement again when I relearn it later lol.

Thanks Jeremy :).

What a cool and lovely drawing, @scrawly! Excellent job!
