more nekkid people :) Some of the last ones I drew before I left. I do miss life drawing class, even tho drawing people is a challenge, which is probably why I liked it. There is an evening class I can take and while I can get someone to watch the dog, the bus leaves more then half an hour after the class ends at night, which is a little later then I would like. But there are at least sites online I can use to help in practising the human form.
I applied to uni as a laugh and because its on my goal list for this year. I really didn't think that I would get in to any of the courses that I applied for and because of other things that were going on we got a dog to try to help (which it has :) ). So a few weeks ago, I got a few emails saying that I had conditional offers on the 3 separate history courses I applied for (they want to see my high school transcript, which I don't have, but can get). But with having Sky now I can't go. I don't regret getting Sky I just thinks its funny that when you are not bothered about something, it tends to happen lol
I love history, and maybe once she is older I can apply again or to a different uni or take courses that I can do at home. I just wouldn't feel right leaving her with a sitter she doesn't know or in a kennel all day and it wouldn't be fair to her at all, not getting the socialization she needs or not working her brain enough. And besides, I don't want to come home to find shes chewed a hole in the wall because she is pissed at me :p
ok they were for the inlaws fireplace, to sit somewhere on it, but they look like mushrooms to me. And I think they are pretty cute, just have to make sure Sky doesn't eat them (like the bodywash bottle and jute grocery bag and the wood toilet seat she took a bite out of :/)
And Mr.F's cousin gave me this, a sari that I just need to make a blouse for out of the orange coloured fabric, or get one made instead (there is lots of fabric here, wouldn't be able to get a photo of the whole thing unless it was on someone). I love how shiny it is :D oh and lots of matching bangles I forgot to take a photo of. I'm going to have to get her to grab me a few more next time she goes back to India :)
I had every intention of drawing today, but woke up with a horrible migraine that just wont go away :( So I am going to try to draw a bit before bed and cross my fingers I'm not hearing bongo drums in my head in the morning *crosses fingers*
Plus Sky made a friend today, a cute little Collie cross puppy named hunter, about 3/4 of the size of Sky but gave as good as he got. Also met a Lab called Briar, but Sky was scared of him as he was a good bit bigger, which made Briar a bit depressed as he only wanted to play....Sky is such a chicken / kiff (MrF cant even remember how to spell the word....Tina / Stina help???)
*Dances* About damn time I was done with this :) And I could probably work on it more, but its driving me insane lol So I think I will stick to graphite next to try to keep my sanity, and no more scarabs for awhile! (of course I will probably break down and use coloured pencils again)
Well there goes my diet :p Mr.F made up some junk food. You know the stuff you find in a Crunchie bar? Thats what this tastes like, he said its puff candy. Pretty simple to make, but full of sugar (which isn't a bad thing :p) (sadly it had burnt bits in it so came with a nasty burnt aftertaste....not so much caramelisation next time methinks, Recipe here >> Mr F)
The theme for the Monday photo of the week is "My Workspace", which has been usurped my Mr.F :p so I am using his desk which use to be my old desk actually, but with a tv on it now which makes it a bit harder to find space to draw. We don't actually watch tv just play games on it, but I would kill for a tv to hang on the wall instead. And I am using his desktop now, which means I can play Command and Conquer 3 (but that is also a bad thing since I lose track of time playing it).
hmmm pringles...actually hmmm henry :p
And most of my pencils are in jars here, the rest are still in the tins they came in under the lightbox. I need one of those plastic drawer unit things on wheels to put all my art supplies in and then have to cross my fingers Sky doesn't figure how to open the drawers lol
And since space is at a huge premium right now, art is shoved anywhere and everywhere (under the bed, portfolios hanging on walls, on top of shelves etc) but at least Sky can't get at it there.
I had every intention of getting this finished and scanned, but we had a small issue of a bathroom flood to deal with instead :/ And of course the flood spread out onto the hall carpet, which was so much fun to clean up we need to flood more often
*I will start drinking if this isn't finished soon :p
ok, so you will make the dog cookies, but wont make me any?
Spent the day making peanut butter treats for Sky, who would not leave my side the whole time they were being made (she loves peanut butter). There was lots of drooling and whining (from the dog :p), and they met with a chomp of approval :) (Mr.F says they smell like stovies, odd smelling stovies).
ugh this has got to be the longest thing I have worked on in a while :/ Thankfully its almost done *lets out a huge sigh of relief* I think I will be focusing on ACEOs again until the puppy calms down, much easier to work on a small scale (well I hope it will be)
*the commenting system here seems to be throwing a fit :/ *kicks*
