Monoprinting

Monoprinting, when Jen makes a big mess everywhere :p

Ink on a plate and then scraped away with a palette knife. I really just wanted to see how the print looked, so its nothing exciting to look at but I do like the effect you get from lifting the ink off the plate. Will def. be doing this again.

Ouch

Managed to stab myself twice carving this, and I am nowhere near done. So crossing my fingers I don't stab myself too many more time, would have to buy more band-aids :p

Going to be 3 colours, white, red and black. I think the design would actually work better done as a silk screen print, but we are not doing screen printing this block :(

Third Attempt

I've made 3 mock up masks now for one of my classes and I like bits and pieces from them all but not the masks by themselves :/

Why did I have to be Libra rising? Why couldn't it have been something simple to make a mask out of, like Leo? Or one of the other animal signs? That would have been easy :p

Time to Laugh

I have never tried to draw myself before, at least I don't think I have, and we needed to for life drawing class. I need to practice :p

It was due last week, and it was done, just missed class due to the chest infection which is not going away :/  I don't sound as much like Darth Vader anymore, but my right lung is burning and I am still short of breath. Really hoping it clears up by Friday, if not, its another trip to the docs.

Owl WIP

Started an owl drawing today, I start with a very rough placement of where things go.
Then I put in where the eyes and beak or going to go.
More refining the lines and placement of things.
And the finished lineart. I haven't decided if I am going to do this in coloured pencil or graphite yet, but either way its a lot of feathers to colour.

Fuzzy Finished


Finished little swan :) I could put some more water ripples on the paper, but I think they would just be distracting, so I am calling this finished. And now onto something else, yeah probably a bird or horse :p

On Fire

More totem poles for college. I like how this one turned out, it does look like things are burning. Now,  to work on some monoprints and my lino fish.

My lioness got into the winter show at the local gallery, so yay, but I still sound like Darth Vader when I breathe :p

An Apple a Day.....

it sort of looks like an apple :p A very oddly shaped one. Tissue paper over a wire armature. There is going to be a small light inside, so it glows in the dark.

I have some kind of plague :/ Feel horrible and my chest is killing me. Whenever I do go to college, I just end up getting a cold/plague, because there will be that one student who shows up sneezing and coughing, even when they should be staying away from the public. And just my luck, I get sick :/

Test Print

So did a few test prints of my little fish so I could see how the black lines will look, and if they need any adjusting. I think it looks fine and now that my bigger sheets of lino have showed up I can start carving the bigger image :) Must remember to get more band aids in case I cut myself :p

Fall Totem

So, I need one A2 sized painting for a class, decided to do a few trail runs before the final piece. Taking a few ideas from my sketchbook, this is the first trail run. I really like the background, the colours turned out great, not too keen on the totem pole. Besides being lop sided :p it just doesn't go with the background.

Line Drawings

So, in one of the classes today we did a bunch of line drawings. The above is a blind contour drawing, and it looks like a fish, yay! :p OK, well it sort of looks like a fish :p

And then it was onto modified contour drawings,
hmmm this vase is starting to be the bane of my exsistense, such difficulties drawing such a simple little object.
A continuous line drawing, which I really enjoyed doing. I really should do more work like this, its good for the brain.

Really Fluffy Now

Started on the body of the little cygnet, doesn't look so odd now its not just a head :p

I do plan on putting some water ripples on the paper, wont fill the whole page, but it does need some hint of a surface or the swan is going to look like its floating :p

Cthulu?

I need to make a mask out of paper for one of my classes that illustrates my rising sign, which is Libra. It couldn't be Leo or something easy? No of course not. The problem I was having was that there really are not that many phsical characteristic to go from, mostly mental ones. But I have figured out something now and the final mask shouldn't look too much like Cthulu when its done :p

Fluffy...

I am horrible at thinking of titles :p But did manage to work on the swan :)
You can see how different levels of light really effects the colour of this paper  here, its a lot lighter here.
And where it stands at the moment. The rest shouldn't take too long, it was just the face that took a long time. The body that does show up here is mostly just browns and gres, so easy enough to colour.

New Friend

I made a friend :-) by fuzzydragons
I made a friend :-), a photo by fuzzydragons on Flickr.
Made a fuzzy new friend, would love to have one but don't have the space or the energy to take care of one properly :/

I have been drawing, but a lot of it is for college, plan on working on the swan tommorow. Really need to finish it, but now I want to draw this gorgeous dog :)

No Longer Evil?

Starting to look a bit more fluffy now. The right eye is too low, but I will try to fix that with some shading. I am glad I have a lot of white pencils,takes a lot to cover over the colour of this paper.

Evil Swan #2

No, I am not going to name the finished piece evil swan :p Its going to be too fluffy looking to be evil. Another swan on the aqua coloured paper, wish I had of grabbed more sheets at the time, but I had no idea what I could do with paper this colour.

Evil Swan

Its not supposed to look evil, its supposed to be cute and fluffy. It shouldn't look like it will eat you :p
