The Andujars by this-is-a-paradox
The Andujars

(4.23.15)

A New Jersey man who fatally slashed a 6-year-old boy’s throat while raping and knifing the child’s 12-year-old sister on her birthday will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Amber Andujar, now 14 years old, bravely spoke before a Camden court Thursday, bearing thick scar marks stretched across her neck that will forever remind her of that horrific day two years ago.

“Today I stand here as a survivor,” she said before the judge, her family, and her brother’s twisted killer, the Courier Post Online reported.

“Even though he took a part of me away, in the end, you did not win,” she said. “We won because I made it.”

“The name that people should remember is that of Dominick Andujar, the 6-year-old murder victim who saved his 12-year-old sister’s life through one of the most heroic acts of self-sacrifice that I have ever known,” said Thomson, according to the Courier Post. “Dominick will always be remembered as Camden’s littlest hero.” It’s a title that the boy may have known ahead of the savage attack as evidenced in his kindergarten journal which was later returned to his mother by his teacher. Inside it read: “I am a superhero, I save people.”

Music: “Not About Angels” (Birdy), “The Golden Age” (Woodkid), “Childhood” (Woodkid).

Just thought something should be done to remember these poor children.

Scary Ladies pt. II by this-is-a-paradox
Scary Ladies pt. II
(4.27.15)
"Every Breath You Take" major to minor version by Chase Holfelder!!! --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PLNsy… (probably around 1:55 mainly)

I wanted to draw some scary women. I think I was thinking about Thetis. In my head they're sea-nymphs like she is, which is why their hair is so floaty.
See the first two in the gallery, "Scary Ladies pt. I" --> this-is-a-paradox.deviantart.c…

Thanks so much!! That really means a lot to me. : ))) As for your comment on inking, I usually do color and stuff, but in my small sketchbook I don't. (Too lazy haha) I'm trying to learn more about shading and color, so in the future I should have lots of color added to my gallery! Thank you again for the kind words!!
