    Armando-- Yes. A million times yes! I can not even explain how much has changed just mentally. I never new I could put my staring at walls to good use in art (I mean that seriously). And I really am looking at the world around me differently.

    1. Dead body laying sprawled on the floor, blood from an open gash in his head and the murder weapon lying off to the side.
    2. Colossal rock giant walking towards a city.
    3. A slinky going down the stairs.
    4. Man hunched over a drink in a restaurant. He has been waiting two hours for his date. He knows she won't come, but he is too depressed to leave.
    5. Rambo walking through the jungle after a killing spree. He is covered in blood and looks like he is still looking for someone to kill.
    6. Woman showing off her engagement ring, pointing out all the little details and different expensive stones with delight.
    7. House built by a crazy person. The pattern is designed to confuse ghosts, with stairs going no where and rooms that have no meaning (yes like that place)
    8. Close up of tango dancers, their heads are mostly out of the frame as the camera slowly zooms out to match their movements.
    9. Woman with short hair cut straight at the jaw, leaning back and looking over her shoulder.
    10. Rope-way car going up the mountain, seen from the side.
    11. A young goddess watches in dismay as her child topples from a whole in the sky down to earth. She reaches for him, but it is too late. Can he ever return?
    12. gigantic palace seen from a distance, lighting up the night sky with its own stars of window lights. It sits nestled in the middle of a huge lake.

    RomanRiot: Man...I totally forgot mother's day was going on then! It was my Monday so it was all over ^_^ No apologies. I just get curious whenever I interact with people online.
    1. SNES FFXI Team walking around Castle Figaro
    2. Kid throwing a karate punch at a practice beam.
    3. Wounded prince stumbling towards the fallen princess.
    4. Man pushing glasses back into place. Closeup.
    5. Bird coming to rest on its perch.
    6. Batman standing before the city of Gotham.
    7. Queen sitting upon her thrown, head propped by her hand.
    8. Closeup of a woman's fancy weird hat
    9. Woman reclining in a chair holding a long cigarette as she listens, bemusedly, to someone.
    10. Movie Poster: in the background in a man in a cape. They stand behind a futuristic city set upon a harbor.
    11. Underdog boxer just knocks out the champ.
    12. Gangsta holding a bat (bottom right) walking towards a really expensive car.

    1. Jedi and Sith in a light saber fight.
    2. A priestess worshiping an engraved idol in a closed room.
    3. 3 Royal concubines in an entourage.

    5. A door opening into a dark room and meeting the light of a window.
    6. A frog putting on a kimono.
    7. A man suspended by wires doing a woman's hair.
    8. A woman leading two children who are carrying something...
    9. Seen from above--four acrobats practicing a cross routine.
    10. Crabs claw being cracked open.
    11. Warrior in spiked armor. Waist up.

    Lol, anjyil, no worries. Armando, I feel like I'm back in school doing these exercises, but it's nice to stretch some mental muscles I may not have been using.

    Also Armando,
    1. Nuclear silos, grey and cold. they are oppressively large and force the viewer to feel small.
    2. Clown at the circus. Even underneath the white and black make up, his coarse stubble pokes through, and his eyes are yellow with jaundice. Cigarette ash clings to his lapels like dander.
    3. A man and a woman in the shape of a heart bodies pointing opposite, up and down, Negative space in black/white shows overlap of their shapes
    4. Engorged elephant seals fight for dominance. Fish entrails and other foreign material crowds the shore at there feet.
    5. A majestic gazelle stares at the viewer. Right near the edge of the piece however, a trail of blood and sutures tells us it's actually a taxidermist's conquest
    6. Excavation of 15th century monastery reveals more than the archaeologists hoped for, but their camp is deserted. Tools and odd objects lie forgotten near the site's entrance. Something hides behind the cross.
    7. Contortionist plies her trade, wrapped only in a cloth covering, one leg extends into the air. Coins overflow near her arm, disgust paints itself across her face.
    8. Mutated tortoise mosies along the forest floor. Other strange animles glint out from the shade of the bushes
    9. Close-up of man with Pancho Villa mustache as he chews a mouthful of food. Grease oozes from the corners of his mouth. His shirt collar has the stain of a kiss on it, but who would want to get so close to him?
    10. Pine forest, a man prepares to zip line from the top
    11. Man in full military kit stops, his face shows his disappointment, bandage on leg and a chain of dog tags tells the rest.
    12. Maharaj's palatial estate seen through two columns. Long shallow pond reflects ambient light. The princess is off to the side, waiting for someone.

    Anjyil,

    1. Dark monks carry a relic between them through a tunnel. The hero watches from on high, hand resting on his dagger.
    2. Expectant mother holds her belly, contractions have started, she looks at the picture on the wall of her husband, in his dress blues, and an urn.
    3. An old oscillating fan, dust sits on it now. Broken tines and a missing blade point to more.
    4. A giant broken question mark.
    5. The foot of a child's bed, a shadow looms over it. Toys on the ground and window behind with full moon as back drop.
    6. Man walks into his bedroom to find everything thrown over, gone through. Someone was here
    7. In white, young girl feeds a face on the side of a tree
    8. Upside down scene, snow falling, sun shines
    9. A door opens and reveals space. Battle commences from ships waiting outside
    10. Sign of the times. A cross through a picture of a gun
    11. Close up, a disused cage in the back of a forgotten science lab glints suddenly, more than the shine of the flashlight on the metal bars. It was he flash of light hitting retinas, red, and green. How could something still be alive!?
    12. A cruel mask about to be laid onto the viewers face, claustrophobia

    Fill in 3 or 4 8x12 grids(wasn't thinking when I said 9!), using horizontal or vertical arrangement on alternating days. Provide description. Do a "developed composition" from it, but post it on the following day. Other members develop a comp according to the description provided.


    1. 3 men, in an empty stadium hatching a plan, guy top right sitting on bleachers, guy on left has foot up on step gesturing with his hands, the other two listen
    2. soldier running up a hill silhouetted by sparkling rockets, whistling and crackling sound effects
    3. the hallway in an abandoned hospital, tiled floor, flickering fluorescent lights lead down the hallway to darkness, afraid to go on but it's as though it's pulling you towards it

    Armando...I am beginning to think you might be the devil in disguise (in a good way) That tempo exercise is evil! (again, in a good way lol) But a good workout, too ^_^ I am jealous that I can not fill my boxes in cleanly.

    Armando, here is the developed concept of your suggestions. If I am doing this wrong or not supposed to post this yet, please correct me.

    Okay, up next, my grids:

    1. A fat man (right) and young rouge discuss plans to infiltrate the Imperial palace. They have a good view of it from their window of the nameless inn where they are meeting. The fat man is drinking an alcoholic beverage.
    2. A forest after a devastating fire. A small rabbit approaches the ruined stump and fallen debris of a burnt tree that was once its home. Crows and vultures fly in the sky in search of corpses.
    3. Three dancers on a stage practicing their routine. Thick red curtains hang on the sides and the stage lights shine brightly from above as the technicians work out the lighting.


    And my tempo study---this is literally the best I could do. I hope I see more improvement in this. It is at least better than my first four attempts. ^_^
    I settled on my 4B pencil because it had the better value range. Ran at 60 BPM for 8 and 4 because 50 was too quick for me ^_^;

    You know what...I am an idiot. I can't believe it. This is my idiot week online and IRL. I apologize. I know I did the exercise wrong---god knows why I confused beats and measures. Le Sigh. I sincerely apologize to both of you. Just, you know, disregard most of what I say and do until it starts looking more intelligent

    Have a great day guys. I am off to sleep.
