Eat the Sun Sketch

Sometimes if I don't have a particular idea in mind to sketch or paint I listen to music.
I just re-imagine what if the song looked liked something in a tangible form what would it look like? Whether if I am paying attention to the instrumentals, lyrics or take the title of the song.

One song I stumbled upon was Eat the Sun by Tora.

I know where you get that from 
Get that from 
You were lying in-accused so long 
All we might have missed in a sense is gone 
But you're a buyer in a tin foil suit and you eat the sun

For the longest time I was pretty sure he was saying
"But you are lying in a tin foil suit and you need the sun.
Until I looked at the lyrics. 
I also like the like the line "Is it so finite?" 

 Generally I'm terrible with listening to a song and catching lyrics I have to listen to something multiple times to get a gist of what it saying.   
Also if I have a particular image in mind I don't like to look at the music video. Most of the time it doesn't live to my expectations or the fact it is someone else's interpretation and I don't want to sub-consciously copy them. It conflicts. 

I drew another thumbnail at a different angle didn't like the feel of it. 
So I reverted back to my original idea. 

Once I get a gist of what I want to do I up the resolution of the thumbnail
to a high print quality standards of 3000px to see more details when I do a detailed sketch,
I use an older version of Perfect Resize called Genuine Fractuals. 
? Now to bring the thumbnail to the next phase. 

Since the game Age of Empires II I was fascinated with Joan of Arc. I thought it would be cool to draw her. With stained glass and the mystical feeling I feel when I hear this song. I do like history and got into a geography bee in middle school and in high school had better history grades than the valedictorian with minimal studying.

So this drawing stems from two different sources of inspiration.
Music and Joan of Arc,

So about a month ago or so I injured something in my rotator cuff. For awhile since I was so swollen, that the doctors could not determine if it was a sprain or a tear in one of the muscles for the first few weeks.I had an mri done this past week and it was a strange experience... I had to fill out 3 different forms if I was claustrophobic... I'm not, but I felt my gephyrophobia well up at times...

 Hopefully when I get my results back this week I won't have to do surgery. In the first time in weeks I feel good and not having to take painkillers regularly. It is humbling at times that since I can't do certain things by myself and at the moment people that that I know have been accommodating in helping me do basic tasks. Even people that I thought didn't care for me a bit! 

Thank you as always -K
