    One week to the deadline. I will be changing the signatures personally - be afraid.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hello CA!

    New member here, advise when needed please.

    Here is a quick sketch of my "Alien Nursery" entry.
    Hopefully I will be able to finish it by the deadline.

    Speaking of which, I know the posted deadline is Feb 28th (currently)...
    and since I'm sure I will be working on this until the last possible minute,
    I wanted to be clear on how strict the deadline is. Is the deadline
    11:59:59 P.M. GMT Feb 28th, or is it more casual? If it is more casual,
    (or if I have the time wrong); how late can we post?

    I noticed Velocity Kendall requested an extension...
    How about an extension for everyone? I know I could use it.

    I'm excited to be a part of the CA community! I will try to get my portfolio
    or sketchbook posted sometime after this contest piece is finished.

    Good luck everyone.

    LOL I just started on the digital copy today, literally. I found a house mid month and am in the process of a crazy move into a house I found on the 14th. (jacuzzi, across from the Washington State Capitol - free bus! and 700 sf studio/workshop attached) I havn't even had time for much sketching. So it should be fair enough. I figure I can carve out 10 hours of drawing in the next two days. That's usually my actual hours on finished work.

    from sketches. im thinking of making the aliens much smaller in the room as it feels a bit too bulky. Have to pack boxes for now for a break and a bit of clam chowder and wine.

    Worked on mid-tones today. Here is a closeup of the area I was focusing on.
    This pic is 150 dpi since the detail wasn't showing at 72 dpi, the file I'm
    working on is actually 300 dpi. I know it's overkill for a casual contest, but
    old habits (print ready!!!) die hard.

    Still so much left to do... another pass for highlights and shadows, finishing the
    remaining characters to equal level, all the nursery props (books, posters, etc.).

    I wanted to do a quaint macrame or woven hanging on right wall with a play on
    the line from the original Alien trailer; it was going to say:
    "In Suburbia, no one can hear you scream".

    ...probably not gonna have time to complete most of the ideas.

    Oh well, next contest I will be in from the start (hopefully), or at least sooner
    than 3-4 days before deadline.

    I'll post one last pic tomorrow before the deadline with what I was able to finish.

    @Izi Gratz on the new house, it sounds fabulous! Hope you find time to finish
    your entry.

    I apologize if this is a double post...

    Attempted posting a few minutes ago and its not showing up in the
    thread or under "What's New"/New Posts. So assuming I goofed on
    the first post here goes try number two.

    Worked on mid-tones today, but still so much to get done.

    This close up is at 150 dpi because the the detail of what I was working
    on today wasn't showing at 72 dpi. My actual work file is 300 dpi, which
    is probably overkill for a casual contest but old habits (print ready!!!) die
    hard.

    I'll post a final tomorrow before the deadline showing what I am able to finish.

    @Izi Gratz on the new house, it sounds fabulous! Hope you find time to
    finish your entry.

    testing to see if quick reply posts work...

    I've tried to post a pic update twice now using the "go advanced" posting method
    and neither post is showing up. I don't know if these problems posting are due to
    being a new user, user error, or site error.

    I am able to log in now so at least that obstacle was removed.

    Sending post now... 3... 2... 1....

    Okay well quick post works.... not sure why my "Go Advanced" posts didn't.
    Guess I'll just wait and try tomorrow to post a final before the deadline.

    You should still be able to post images with that button...or you can upload it elsewhere and use [img] tags

    but yah...this site can be a bit broken at times, sorry 'bout that.

    Only 40 minutes left so I thought it best to stop and post what I have.
    Here is my entry as it currently is.

    Thanks for the vote V K, you are welcome to use it as a FB background;
    any usage that generates more views of my work is to be appreciated!

    ...especially if those views might be potential employers. =)

    Although I signed the pic with my real name and not Erica Zann. Should
    I change it? Would love to hear how other people manage self promotion
    using a virtual name versus using their real name. Anyone have advice?

    Okay so it has to go to a vote (I'd already composed your losing sig VK - rats). I'll stick in the Lounge tomorrow with the others, but the lower of you 2 will pay the price.

    hm...maybe I should make a thread about that...I've been wondering that myself. I'm constantly changing my signature, and now I just slap on that snazzy little logo I'm using for my avitar pic.

    Thanks for the advice V.

    I'm not worried about someone liking/disliking/joking about my chosen name, but rather
    the more practical side of whether it is a problem for employers in some way.

    The other issue that I am thinking about is how to link my recent and upcoming work to
    my previous body of work. Now that I am re-entering the work force I would like to be able
    to include relevant pieces from my early days as a gallery artist, my mural/faux work, as well
    as examples of the 3D and digital work that I was beginning to do before I left the industry.

    Perhaps I am worrying about nothing... I suppose I will have a clearer idea of what potential
    issue(s) I might be facing after I finish going through my archives and assemble a first edit of
    my portfolio/sketchbook posts.
