I think I might enter this weeks teen challenge. I just discovered it. A wip for that: topic -> garden of impurity. And since I challenged Unidcolor to do an enviro that had a ratio of 8x3 vertical, I decided I might as well do one with that sort of sizing as well: 3.3x11.1.
This is what has been keeping me occupied for the last week. Whenever I'd finished whatever else I had to do, I worked a bit on this. My brother was getting fed up with not being able to move the scoop so he could touch the counter, and I was getting bored, so I guess it's as done as it's going to get. Lots of issues, but I'm not going to get too caught up in it. Crits etc. are very, very welcome.
Yo Pixie Trick! Just wanted to come over and say hello! and yeh keep on working and have a nice time while doing it too!=) its looking great.
im sorry but im not very good at critique, but I think the latest one is looking good, the final part would be to polish it, but yeh time can be an issue, you did a good job blocking it all out so you couild stop at any time without anything left blank too!=) I feel your pain of your brother, what if he needed a calculator!, but I guess those exists on computers and phones these days hah.
Hi Pixie Trick, nice sketchbook! Good that you try many different media. I really like the ideas for the chessmen. The digital stillive is good, but the very inhomogeneous holes in the dipper (the big spoon?) are a bit disturbing. Are you going to post photos of the caly stuff you do? - that would be great!
UnidColor: Nice to 'see' ya! My brother can just suck it up, though next time I think I'll do something smaller, but more refined.
engelhardt: It's nice to know what you like. I've been thinking about which things I've done that people like, and trying to make a connection, but there doesn't seem to be much of one. The list is something like: chess pieces, collage/mosaic, time machine, studies. Studies I can see why more so, but other than that, I have no clue!?!? Frustrating because the ones I like, on one else seems to. Weird. I don't do a whole lot of clay work, but I've taken a course or two. I have one statue that I mentioned to you in your sb, and is mentioned earlier in this threat, but it is currently on display with my life drawing of my teacher. And what do you mean about the holes being 'homogeneous' and 'disturbing'? They're in the wrong spots perhaps? If you could clarify that'd be great.
Mehhh...some stuff. I really haven't gotten much done, and I'm feeling rather burnt out for no apparent reason. I just don't feel like doing anything. Here's some week or two old stuff. Porous exo-skeleton final and garden shears from multiple angles.
Thanks to you both for stopping by. I have no idea what is tastes like: I'm a vegetarian, but I can sent some to you if you want.
Here's what I spent a wonderful, marvelous, absolutely charming hour doing. Everyone else had bought out of class to watch the girls rugby game (I hear one got sent to the hospital with a broken collarbone), I decided I'd do some french work. This turned up instead. Actually a friend of mine drew a dragon across the same length of board and it was up there for three weeks in April. The only truly random thing is the cheese. Everything else is either connected (at least in my mind) or has some purpose. I love doing things like this. Puns, inside of randomness, inside of puns. FUNNNNNN!!!!! I got really weird looks from the entire five other people in the room. And thank god for auto-align.
Also, any suggestions on this gal's cape? Something still strikes me as off. This is the sculpt mentioned earlier. I will get better pics later. Everyone ignores the girl and goes, "Kittiesssss!!!!!" and picks them up and talks to them. Skin colour will get adjusted later too.
Thanks! It makes me happy when someone sees improvement, because I can't seem to find it in too many places.
Some stuff. A continuation of the anatomy. I think I managed to find the one book that doesn't have a non cut away angle of the back of the leg. Now to find a second book... Oh well. And I was playing with CRAYONS!!!!! for the first time in ages. Funfunfunfun! It's neat what shows up sometimes. My favourite is the nail polish bottle. It's actually an aqua sparkly colour in real life with a black lid. And last but not least is Mr. Wire Monkey Feet Man! I tried to show how he moves in the set of photos.
