    Just wanted to mention the thread I started for my Pysanky. It's in my signature.

    bbwolf: Nah, just school project. There's a girl that I have a bit of a 'who can figure out what the teacher wants better and then do a better job of it', thing going on. Keeps me motivated anyways. Healthy rivalry and all that. I would have done nearly the same amount of work anyways. Why not do a good job?

    ah, scoring brwonie points. Yes sometimes going the extra mile is rewarding.
    Doing kinda boring monkey work is also a good prep for the working life, hehe.
    A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

    Man, I just love that collage portrait! I don't care what you say, I think it's awesome with a really nice style and great colours and everything.
    That drawing of you and your grandma is lovely too
    And keep up those studies, they're great!

    Thank you Mokinzi.

    Long time, no post. I had an indecisive week or two where I couldn't figure out if I wanted to do something enough to start.

    A three week old portrait of my dear dad (20min or so as he would only sit still for the end of the show he was watching) Sketchies for sculpture in class: I started the first gown lady, only to have her fall in half, get a tear in the clay going halfway across the skirts and generally be miserable on the fifth day. I'm doing the rag girl now. She seemed the most structurally sound, although I'm having problems with her cloak. Wip for six legged steed for cow.

    Feet and hand studies are always good!

    I really like that mosaic portrait you made there, you managed to get most things in the right places and at the same time make it interesting. And the fabric studies as well, I'd like to see you push those further.

    Srokness: Thanks! Will do (at some point... )

    Another wip for the six legged steed. It seems soooo static though. I over render things and it really bugs me.

    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.

    Here's the finals for the above two. I'm not sure about the sand being sprayed up by the feet, but it's more interesting this way... choices, choices...

    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.

    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.

    Keep up the good work!

    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.

    Thanks quackart. I love that little guy too. No one expects him to do anything, but he moves!

    Selkie for teen challenge. I'm trying to keep away from naked lady coming out of skin, as that seems to be what everyone else is doing. Going more for the symbolic view. She was caught (the net), and is trapped in the human world (closed window and in a house), while she can't find her skin (I know it's right there, but the idea is that it is being kept 'over her head'). I'll probably add some water on the bench where she's come back from standing in the water. I'm not sure if I should have the skin chained or caged or something. I don't want to add any more strait lines into the mix, so I think cage is out. Also, I want the dress to be white, or at least light coloured, and I'm afraid of making is blend with the skin. Ahhhhh..... Crits as always are very welcome.

    Hi Pixie Trick,
    sorry that you did not understand what I wanted to say. I still did not figure out how to put it in better words, so I decided to make an overpaint; hope thats okay.
    The monster from #72 is very cool and the whole painting looks good!

    That's great! you're still up to snuff with the anatomy studies. And .. what Crayons? never heard of such things

    You have some clever ideas with the wire monkey, I am going to try your hand/and feet wiring method when I start a new armature for my next sculpey attempt

    Interesting image on the last post, keep it up

    engelhardt: The overpaint is perfectly alright.

    Attachment 684254

    Here's a picture of the actual spoon. It's curved so the dots wouldn't be in a grid shape like you have shown. They have to change position and shape to match how they warp because of the perspective going on. Thanks.


    strings: Go right ahead and use the hand idea. I hope it works. Thanks.

    Some really random and un-connected stuff this post..... An acrylic 30 min paint that got ps adjusted so it looks funny + overworking of shadow. About 4x6. I got the primaries in Golden paints when I was in Toronto ages ago and I love it. And a cloud with rain and wind that jingle when moved (I gave it to someone who wanted it so it got a bit bent, but you get the idea).

    Thanks revenebo!

    Some really random sketchies.

    On the subject of "What if I were a space cowgirl". I was also suggested, what if I were a strand of hair? What if I were a slug? What if I were married to Spock underwater where everyone is a mer-person..... I think I took the safest one.

    A continuation of the cowgirl thing (I'm not sure about the moon in the corner... opinions anyone?), and the tentative first four pages of a kids book. The moral will be "Worry gives all things a bigger shadow", of something to that effect. Basically, she's worried that there's ghosts etc, and therefore she sees all sorts of scary shadows. She then goes back and sees that they were all ordinary things. I'm trying to keep the pages to half and hour each.

    The 'as finished as it's going to get for now' copy of the book. My three favourite pages are the Ahhhh!, the cabin with the mountain, and the raven. The cat is hideous. It took soooooo much longer than it looks like it should have. Meh. I might neaten and fix it up, then make a copy for my small cousins. I think they might like it.

    That was awesome! Great storytelling really, it reminds me of Aesop's fables. It has a great look, simply amazed. I see continuity with the panels, it's essential to really include elements from previous ones to keep things flowing.

    Looks like somebody has been busy this week.

    Strings: Thanks so much. It means a lot coming from such a great storyboarder. The continuity in this case had as much to do with time constraints than anything. Find something that works and stick with it. Hugs to you. In a non weird way... if possible.

    Anywhoooo, 'tis exam time once again, and most of this is stress reliever hence some really creepyness (The dude I love you guy in a tutu was inspired by a sprite + w.o.w. ad... sleeeeeep ). I need to do some more pen or something 'cause my strokes are reverting to scribbly right to left. Actually, I'm not using it, so I'm losing it, it seems like. Meh I'm still working on the space cowgirl thing. It's now on an approx 12.2x16.3 board (or some horrible numbers like that) that required transfer by grid + calculation of squares. The cow is all white, so it's a lesson in making something white look not flat. Add to that it's done with only black, white, and the primaries it's a bit difficult. Fun, but difficult. We shall see...

    Ummm... Barney mated with a giant octuopus and then the offspring got angry when his stuffed animal was taken by the bullies.... got to admire the capability of children for pure hatred and meanness. Specially if your dad is such a wimp.
