    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).

    edit: nearly forgot this. It's a bit old, but I tried a new way of shading...

    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.

    Random. I still have to watch how stuff warps upward to the right of whatever I do... grrrr.

    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.

    Some stuff. Magazine faces that are mildly warped. An illuminated letter that's quite old.
